Fluff escaping from my Creda Simplicity Dryer T522VW
Even though the hose is attached and vented outside, the laundry room is still full of fluff! I have attached the hose to the front of the machine. Please can you tell me why fluff is still escaping. Thanks.

Re: Fluff escaping from my Creda Simplicity Dryer T522VW
You don't say how much fluff is escaping, but some things to check are -
1) That the lint screen is fully seated into the top of the dryer vent 2) All the way to where it discharges the house, is clean and free of restriction 3) Check that the dryer door gasket and lint screen cover gasket's are in good condition and do not allow air leakage.
Make certain the flex duct leading from the back of the dryer is connected tightly to the dryer and the vent duct, and make sure the flex duct is not split or broken.

Sorry for the obvious.....
Fluff on the cloths is from the lint trap not capturing it from the air flow.
Air is passed into the clothes from the laundry room. It is heated and then passed over the clothes... then filtered air is forwarded to the outside exhaust.
If you are seeing lint on your clothes, then the air coming in from your laundry area is not lint free.
1. check the back/bottom of the dryer for lint accumulation.
2. Remove the lint trap and clean out the duct work.
3. Inspect all the flooring and areas around the dryer for dust/lint - and clean any that you find.
I believe that you will then have a clean and dry load.
The proceedure of cleaning described above should be repeated every 6 months or so....
Your duct work is probably clogged with the fluff, which will not allow the air to flow though like it should. When that happens, the heat builds up on the cabinet and the heat sensor shuts down the heat. Its an easy fix, it this is the case. Just remove the duct from the dryer, clean it out, clean out the fluff from the dryer duct connection, then go outside and inspect the outside dryer vent for clogs. Make sure the flapper is working on the outside vent as well. Good luck!
Are there crackes in the hose and is it clamped on at the dryer outlet ? Check also to see if it is pluged up or if the hose came off the connection to vent outside or also the vent flaps are sticking. If you by chance have solid tubes, wrap up the seams and connections with duct tape.
Hi. Is there a 4" jole that the vent could go in underneath the dryer? Some older model were set up that way. I have never heard of this brand but, it's an idea. Some models were set up to vent out the sides too.
In a unrestricted rigid metal vent no water will accumulate. A dryer is exhausting hot and humid air to the outdoors. If the vent becomes restricted with a lint buildup, that lint can become wet. The more restricted the airflow is, the less airflow is available to remove the moisture. if there are low spots, or a flexible vent is used, pockets of moisture can accumulate......especially on a longer vent run.
Try hooking it out with a long piece of fairly strong wire with a hook on the end.
It won't stop the dryer from working, but if it is vented , remove and clean the vent hose by running water through it, this will remove all traces of fluff, and make sure the outside is clear if it goes through a wall.
Plz rate my solution.
GAS DRYER, NO HEAT. CHECK THE HEAT SETTING FIRST.
IS IT ON AIR FLUFF? I'M NOT BEING SMART, BUT YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED HOW MANY CALLS I TAKE THAT ARE ON AIR FLUFF. SECOND, LISTEN FOR A DISTINCT CLICK WHEN YOU TURN ON THE DRYER. IF YOU HEAR IT, LOOK IN THE INSPECTION HOLE ON THE FRONT OF THE DRYER, OR REMOVE THE TOE PLATE TO VIEW THE IGNITOR. IF THE IGNITOR GLOWS AND THEN CLICKS OFF BUT NO FLAME, YOU HAVE A BAD SOLENOID ON THE GAS VALVE. IF THE IGNITOR GLOWS, BUT NEVER CLICKS OFF, THE RADIANT SENSOR ATTACHED TO THE SIDE OF THE BURNER ASSEMBLY IS BAD.
IF YOU DON'T HEAR A DISTINCT CLICK WHEN YOU TURN ON THE DRYER, THE MOST LIKELY CAUSE IS THE THERMAL FUSE LOCATED ON THE BACK OF THE DRYER DOWN NEAR THE EXHAUST DUCT. IT IS A SMALL WHITE ITEM ATTACHED TO THE EXHAUST DUCT WITH TWO WIRES ATTACHED.
