Question about Bosch Nexxt WTMC3321US Electric Dryer
Dryer will run for selected time. It turns, it heats up but won't dry properly. There seems to be blow back of lint which suggests vent line is plugged. I pulled everything apart and cleaned all vent line to outdoors. vacuumed vent line from back of dryer in as far as hose would go. I pulled collected lint from down in the deep crevice below the lint filter and vacuumed everything thoroughly.
I ran dryer without vent tube attached to check for air flow. Very strong flow with hot air coming out of the back vent ( stronger than before all the cleaning).
I figured that all the cleaning solved the problem, so ran a wet load on the 40 minute cycle. Cloths were warm and still very wet and still appeared to be lint blow back as though the vent line is still clogged. I then ran the dryer on regular setting and after 30 minutes or so the cloths were dry. Filter did not have a "tight" pack of lint as when dryer was working normally.
There appears to be some sort of trap door or compartment that is out of reach from any part of a dryer opening that is not allowing the air to flow through.
Any help or advice will be appreciated.
