Question about Dryers
No matter how many or few clothes, towels, etc we put in the dryer it takes a very long time to dry. Often we must put the clothes thru two complete cycles. Our daughter has an identical dryer, but hers does not take nearly that long.
95% chance the vent is clogged.
When te vent and /or pipe is clogged, the moist air has nowhere to go and it will take longer to dry. Clogged vents/pipes are also a fire hazzard.
Find where the vent exits the home, and look inside. They often get clogged with lint, birds nests etc. There should be a flap or grid to prevent entry of birds and other critters, but they often break off.
Cloggs can also occur at the dryer where the vent exits the dryer.
IF THE VENT PIPE IS PLASTIC you should replace it with a metal vent. Flexible is OK in most areas, but it should be metal.
The plastic pipes have been deemed a fire hazard in many areas.
