Things You'll Need:
<span>Electric leaf blower</span>
Remove the lint trap from the dryer and peel off the accumulated fuzz.<br />
the top of the dryer, the floor nearby and underneath for lint at least
once a week. When you remove the lint trap, tiny particles fly into the
air and settle nearby. Behind and underneath the dryer are favorite
hiding places for dryer lint.<br />
the vent tube from the rear of the dryer and inspect it every month.
Dryer lint accumulates more easily in flexible plastic tubes than rigid
aluminum ones, because curves halt the lint's path.<br />
the vent tube leading to the wall annually. As for the tube leading to
the exterior, a trick that sometimes works is aiming an electric leaf
blower down the tube. The leaf blower can expel the lint through the
exhaust on the exterior. Before using the leaf blower, check that all
duct work is fastened securely.<br />
and remove the back panel on the dryer, if you're mechanically
inclined. Particles that escaped the lint trap can accumulate inside
the dryer cabinet, so vacuum this area.<br />
sounds like the vent tubing is not hooked up as it should be and that can cause a lot of lint buildup inside of the dryer parts. take it apart again and clean out all of the lint because this is a fire hazard. make sure that the vent is connected to the lint trap and try working it again. it sounds like maybe the buildup of lint is making the drying hard to do.
u probably have the dryer pushed too close to the wall and u have kinked the dryer vent or u have a buildup of lint in the dryer vent or the lint trap pull the dryer out and pull the dryer vent off and dry a load with it off and away from the wall if it works the u have a kinked hose or a lint blockage in the hose good luck hope this helps
Go outside and look at your flapper valve. Here is another news flash the lint filter can be clean but the air ducts in the dryer can still have lint build up in them. Pull out the lint trap also then using a flaishlight look underneath and around the lint trap area for lint build up. If you don't see anything there remove the rear vent hose and look both into the dryer and into the vent hose. Most likely you find either a kinded vent hose or lint buildup somewhere other than the lint trap itself. If you do find the source just do not use anything sharp to attempt to remove the lint. A bent metal coat hanger or a very large zip / spot ite works great for this task. Hopefully this will resolve your problem. If not post back and we can go from there.
Older clothes do not produce as much lint as new ones. Also, if your dryer isn't getting as hot as it used to, then you won't get as much lint either. Does it seem to take a bit longer to dry your clothes? Also, check your dryer vent, if the airflow is reduced, the amount of lint that is expelled through the filter will deminish as well. You may have a build up of lint in the vent ducting to the outside that is restricting airflow.
