Question about Dryers
Assuming that the dryer is still getting hot, your problem is likely lint buildup in the exhaust vent. Over time lint will build up in the vent pipes, eventually restricting the air flow so much that the dryer takes far longer to dry the close. Not only is this annoying and wasteful of energy, it can also be a fire hazard.
The good news is that you can fix this yourself. Lowes sells a dryer vent cleaner called the LintEater. I purchased this two weeks ago and used it and, wow, what a difference! If you have a long exhaust pipe, there is an extension kit as well. I used both and now my dryer is working like when we built our house 10 years ago.
The kit works best with a ShopVac to vacuum out the lint as the rotating brush dislodges it.
Otherwise, check your local yellow pages for someone to clean it for you.
Hope that helps!
