THIS IS UNSAFE AND DANGEROUS BECAUSE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF CARBON MONOXIDE FUMES CROSSING INTO TO TEE AND THROUGH THE ELECTRICAL DRYER AND INTO THE HOUSE. GAS DRYERS MUST BE VENTED WITH ONLY APPROVED GAS DUCTS TO PREVENT FUMES ESCAPING INTO THE HOUSE. THESE CAN KILL! PLEASE RECONSIDER AND DON'T DO THIS. IT IS DANGEROUS. A ELECTRICAL DRYER CAN BE VENTED TO AN INSIDE FILTER TYPE BUCKET WITH WATER IN THE BOTTOM. IT DOESN'T HAVE TO GO OUTSIDE BECAUSE THERE ARE NO POISONIOUS FUMES. SO, VENT THE GAS DRYER AND USE AN INSIDE LINT CATCHER TYPE FILTER ON THE ELECTRIC AND YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS. OK?
NEED MORE INFO, JUST REPLY.

Theres a problem with the drier as dof theres never any water in the tray anymore , and the drier is filling with fluff, takes ages too dry anything , what do you recommend plerase angela


Check your exhaust line and lint filter. Go outside and locate on the wall where the dryer exits the house. If you can, feel around the inside and clear the exhaust of any lint or debris. Next, check the lint filter. If it's packed, remove all lint from it and clean with mild soap and water. Put the filter back in it's place. Turn on dryer's normal setting that you most commmonly use and star dryer. Go back outside to where the dryer vent exits the house. Place your hand over the vent. You should feel hot air coming out at a pretty decent rate.

My dryer is taking three cycles to dry clothes and its only 2 yrs old. Air flow looks good and lint has been cleaned out. Any suggestions?


Yes, check the hose behind the machine. Pull the drier out away from the wall pull the vent hose off and make sure it is clear, then look at the connection on the back of the drier and the vent at the wall, go outside and look at it for birds nest or kids putting tennis balls in it.

AFTER DISCONECTING THE GAS FOR TILE WORK IT NEVER WOULD REHEAT


So long as its heating a little, try removing the venting, and see if there an improvement. a clogged vent will greatly reduce if not stop all heat . dont forget to check where venting exits the home outside also becomes clogged.

Now restart it - it should work.

We have just purchased a Lg Dryer #DLE1310W which which is yet to be delivered. I have 2 questions: 1. The electrician needs to know if the dryer cord is a 3-prong or 4-prong cord. He is installing the...


lg driers are a 3 prong drier cord receptical he shouldn't have to purchase any other venting as long as the location of the dryer is not in an oddball place The parts included are for basic installation in an area such as the garage or room connected to the garage where the access to the outside is just through a outer wall. Mrs. Leonard good luck on your repairs and hope I helped you some.

My drier is a Maytag, it is not heating up the way it should be.


There is a chamber that the air blows down before hitting the vent pipe. It may need to be cleaned. But you want to make sure when you push your dryer back, that the vent doesn't kink. good luck. Overall you drier works, your just having a venting issue.

GE profile dryer not drying completley


Check that the vent outside (especially in northern climates this time of the year). Then check the hose that goes from the drier to the outside vent. Finally, check the drier itself, that there is no obstructions getting to the hose. Check the lint trap. Is it full or is it installed properly? If all this checks out, then try replacing the heating element. These are usually inexpensive, and fairly easy to replace. The manual for the drier should have diagrams on how to access it.
