Question about Maytag Neptune MDE6800A Electric Dryer
My dryer vent goes straight up in the wall about 10 feet and in the attic it makes a 30-45 degree turn and travels another 6 feet before it exits the attic thru the roof. I have to remove the transition hose from the back of my dryer about every 2 months because it is packed with wet lint. Lately water is leaking out of this hose at the dryer fitting and leaking onto the floor. It takes close to 2 hours to dry towels. I have to pause the dryer and restart again to get it to complete the load. Lint also builds up right outside the top of the lint filter and around the door seal. I push a long vacuum hose up the vent each time I clean out the transition hose and also reverse the shop vac and blow the vent. There is no back pressure when I blow out the vent so it seems like the vent is clear. I can see up the vent to the turn at the ceiling/attic tranisition and it is clean.
Also, it gets below freezing where I live in the winter, and I wonder if the warm moist air in the vent condenses before it exits out the roof and falls back down the vent.
Your hose is to long you should vent it stright out wall if you can't you can buy a small inside vent kit it take so long to dry becuase it's not exsusted proper
