Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Does a dryer have to have a vent if it's on an open terrace?

I have an AEG electrical dryer. It's model T36809. I installed it on my balcony. I could attach a dryer vent to it, but it seems pointless to do so since the dryer is anyway sitting outside. But then I thought that maybe if I don't install it, rain can enter the dryer, and that can cause a short. So what should I do – should I install the vent?
Thank you very much

Its not going to hurt not having it on there. but you might wanna try putting some pantyhose on the outlet to keep unwanted guests out. any blockage could cause your dryer to overheat or worse cause a fire. hope this helps. do keep it covered when not in use. you can buy an xl barbecue grill cover pretty cheap.

My aeg lavatherm 37320. Fluff is blowing back into the drum when drying.


You need to clean the inside of the dryer. A shop vac up the exhaust vent is the easiest way. If your hands are small enough you can reach i. There and clean it out. Obviously unplug the dryer first.

CHECK VOLTAGE=240VOLTS NOT 120VOLTS,ITS TAKES 240V TO HEAT BUT WILL RUN ON 120V.
THEN START WITH HEATER ELEMENT ..SEE IT ELEMENT IS OPEN.
THEN START RUN ING TEST ON THERMO'S TO SEE IF CLOSED OR OPEN...

AEG 59800 dryer is not drying, it runs the full cycle but the clothes are still slightly damp. Why ?


If the clothes going in don't appear wetter than normal, then it's probably lack of airflow.
Check your dryer venting.. especially directly behind the machine. Pull the machine out and disconnect the 4" duct from the back of the machine and visually check for blockage both in the machine and in the duct work. Use a vacuum hose to remove any debris.
You can also start the machine while it's disconnected from the duct, momentarily to check for proper airflow.
Best of success!

AEG T30 Dryer: runs but doesn't heat


i can't remember exactly where it is but there is a thermal fuse adjacent to the heater - check if open circuit. if it is open circuit, it may indicate a lint blockage in the air flow or a build up of lint on the fan

Dryer takes too long to dry


This complaint is most often caused by the dryer's vent being blocked with lint. Dryers need to be properly vented, otherwise the moisture in the air can't be properly carried away. Vents that go out the roof are particularly problematic-- the dryer may take far too long to dry clothes and the vent pipe may even drip water that can't be exhausted. Minimum size for a dryer's roof vent is 4 inches. If your dryer has chronically poor drying, if possible, have the vent moved to where it exits a house wall near the dryer. The vent should be made of 4-inch aluminum rigid duct and elbows or, where absolutely necessary, flexible metal (but not flexible thin foil). Do not use flexible plastic duct-- it restricts air flow and is combustible. The dryer should vent outside--never into a crawl space, wall, ceiling chimney, or other type of flue. The bottom of the exhaust hood should be located at least 12 inches above the ground. Here is what to do: 1) Check the lint trap and clean it. 2) Be sure the dryer isn't pushed so close to the wall that it pinches off the airflow through the vent's air duct hose. 3) Check the point where the air duct vents away from the house. Be sure plants, birds, or anything else hasn't blocked it. If the duct vents out the roof, it could easily be blocked with lint. 4) Disconnect the air duct hose from the back of the gas dryer and clean out built-up lint. Note: For safety, first turn off the gas to the dryer, then unplug the dryer; this means you will have to re-light the pilot light later if the dryer has one (read your owner?s manual for proper re-lighting techniques). 5) If necessary, clean out the ductwork from the dryer to the exterior wall where it vents; this may involve disconnecting sections. One trick that sometimes makes this job easier (but only if the dryer duct is fastened firmly at all connection points) is to blow lint and debris through the duct and out the exterior wall vent, using an electric leaf blower.
