Electric Dryer takes too long to dry clothes. Hose/vent is not crimped or locked. How do I clean out the vent built into the wall and ends at my roof top?

Dryer Vent Cleaning: Clothes take too long to dry. We keep the lint catcher in the front of the dryer clean. How does one clean the dryer vent that is within the wall and out onto my roof top (without having to hire someone to do it). Thanks! JO

Here's a trick I used on my laundromats with vertical exhaust vents on the dryers..
When the dryers began drying too slow, taking too much time, giving out too many refunds...
I resorted to climbing on the roof with a webster duster... it looks like a chimney sweep brush on a telescoping pole.
I turned the dryers on and while they were running, ran the webster duster down the vent pipe.. It cleaned out the duct very well! I got "linted" but it worked!

Remember that the vent run should not be too long. If it gets too long, it will not stay clean and it will take too long to dry as well. if this is a recurring condition, you may want to consider a reroute of the duct.

Also, the exhaust end should be free flowing... no screen. A self-closing flap is okay, but no screen..it will simply clog up the works...
Try the webster... they sell them at the local grocery store... they come with their own extension pole too!

Let me know how it goes!

Takes too long to dry clothes


You may have a clogged air vent, check that the air vent hose is not smashed, if it is not smashed, have your dryer vent cleaned professionally, all the way from where the dryer connects to the wall to where the vent leaves the home,
Recheck the dryer operation, dryer vents should be cleaned every other year for optimum performance

Maytag Dependable Care Plus/Heavy Duty Dryer Model # LDG9304AAM Dryer is turning, there is heat but clothes are not drying


HI- Usually when the clothes take a long time to dry it is an issue with the vent. Look in the back of the dryer and make sure the vent is not crushed, crimped or blocked. As well, go outside when the unit is running and feel how much air is coming out of the exit vent. It should be blowing pretty good. If not replace and clean the vent, if the vent goes through the wall and makes a bunch of turn over a long distance you will need to have a vent cleaning service out to brush and vacuum the vent. You can test this by detaching the vent where it goes into the wall and putting pantyhose over the end and see if it dries better. You could also have a thermostat issue but I look at the venting first. Hope this helps.

Taking long time to dry the clothes


Due to a dryer either heats or no heat , I would suggest pulling the dryer out and removing the vent hose . Dry a load of clothes to see if they dry normally . If they do , this verifys that the vent hose is either kinked ( restricting air flow ) , or , if the vent runs UP inside the wall , there is a restriction between the inside vent hose to the outside vent . May have to go into the attic to clean .

Same way towels take 2hrs to dry , white take an hour. this is insane after pending that much on a dryer that is only maybe 1 1/2 yrs old


Have the dryer vent checked and the venting from the wall to the exit of the home. a 50% blocked or crushed vent line will have a direct impact of the dry time.

How to check : disconect the dryer vent from the wall and ((((OPTIONAL--- put some old stocking -(( pantie hose )) on the end of the dryer vent to keep the lint and dust to a minimum.

run the dryer with a load of cloths and see if they dryed on time. If they did, then you have a cloged vent.

Dryer does not get hot enough to dry clothes Roper REX4634KQ1 Electric Dryer


The vent may be stopped up, or the vent hose crimped so the air cannot escape, you can check the air flow at the vent on the outside of the house while the dryer is running.
try cleaning the vent and the lint screen with a vacuum cleaner, you may need to replace the vent hose, this should solve the problem

My Whirlpool AWZ7303 Condensor dryer wont dry the clothes. It heats up, and you can see the steam on the clothes. I think that its not extracting the moisture properly. The water collector does get full...


Your vent hose is crimped or clogged. Take hose off and see if air is coming out. Bet your dryer has been push against the wall and crimped the hose. This is the problem 8 out 10 time but if it isnt let me know. There is more tricks.

LG Stacking Dryer


To make sure it is a vent problem ,Do one load without the vent hose attaching to the wall ,keep in mind that it may blow out some dust, you may want to cover the end of vent hose with a nylon stocking for just this ONE time.Now run this 1 cycle on a timed dry cycle at the highest mark...60, 70,etc.If the clothes are dry at the final stopping point than you know your vent is blocked.Or you pinched the vent hose closed.It only takes a small blockage to create alot of waiting time for dryer to end its cycle.The faster the air can get out of the dryer the faster it dries.

Dryer takes too long to dry


This complaint is most often caused by the dryer's vent being blocked with lint. Dryers need to be properly vented, otherwise the moisture in the air can't be properly carried away. Vents that go out the roof are particularly problematic-- the dryer may take far too long to dry clothes and the vent pipe may even drip water that can't be exhausted. Minimum size for a dryer's roof vent is 4 inches. If your dryer has chronically poor drying, if possible, have the vent moved to where it exits a house wall near the dryer. The vent should be made of 4-inch aluminum rigid duct and elbows or, where absolutely necessary, flexible metal (but not flexible thin foil). Do not use flexible plastic duct-- it restricts air flow and is combustible. The dryer should vent outside--never into a crawl space, wall, ceiling chimney, or other type of flue. The bottom of the exhaust hood should be located at least 12 inches above the ground. Here is what to do: 1) Check the lint trap and clean it. 2) Be sure the dryer isn't pushed so close to the wall that it pinches off the airflow through the vent's air duct hose. 3) Check the point where the air duct vents away from the house. Be sure plants, birds, or anything else hasn't blocked it. If the duct vents out the roof, it could easily be blocked with lint. 4) Disconnect the air duct hose from the back of the gas dryer and clean out built-up lint. Note: For safety, first turn off the gas to the dryer, then unplug the dryer; this means you will have to re-light the pilot light later if the dryer has one (read your owner?s manual for proper re-lighting techniques). 5) If necessary, clean out the ductwork from the dryer to the exterior wall where it vents; this may involve disconnecting sections. One trick that sometimes makes this job easier (but only if the dryer duct is fastened firmly at all connection points) is to blow lint and debris through the duct and out the exterior wall vent, using an electric leaf blower.
