Question about Dryers
I have a stackable washer/dryer. It takes 2 hours for it to dry.When you put your hand on the side of the dryer it practically burns you so I know it's getting heat. The vents have all been cleaned, except for the one to the roof b/c the maintanance guy refuses to do it. I have an aluminum duct hooked up to it. My brother mentioned m/b it's the blower? I have a GE model electric dryer, DDE6500GAL, with the same problem. I've already had a chimney sweep clean out the venting system and still the same problem. In reading jrsrock516's comment, I'm wondering if I have the problem because of how my venting system runs. I live in a condo so would not be so easy to reroute... I'm going to try what you recommend to see if it is, in fact, my dryer or the vent line. I've been told to get a new dryer and that would solve the problem. Apparently, others within this living area had the same problem, and it was out with the old in with the new.
Anytime you have the duct going up and out like your is there will be a problem and to make sue your problem is in the vent he wont clean out is to disconnect the hose from back of dryer and run a load and i bet the cabinet wont get hot anymore and it will dry as should and then tell him to do his job and clear the vent and if he dont talk to the apt manager / larry
