There is a kit for that. You can also import outside air instead of using cool air from the room. You can make or find "small kitchen pan" that covers the intake area on the back then add a collar for a 4" hose from a dryer and vent it outside making sure the air stays away from the exhaust air.

Pull off exhaust vent. Clean. Remove back cover. Clean all airways free of lint and debris. Is this electric or gas dryer? If electric, plug back in and run dryer. Is the heating element glow red? Yes, check and make sure that air is now flowing freely out the back of the exhaust vent. No, replace heating element.

Ac exhaust fan

Yes for dehumidifier, no for heat mode. In dehumidifier mode all the unit does is takes air in, runs it through the evaporator (cold) coil and the back through the condenser (warm) coil discharging dry, slightly warmer air back into the room. In heating mode however if you don't vent the exhaust there will be no heat produced. Warm air will come out the top but cold air will also come out the exhaust (essentially, in heating mode all it does is operates as an air conditioner in reverse. Hope this helps.

Overheats and keeps tripping dedicated breaker in house, venting and inside back panel vacuumed out.

If your dryer has a sensor it may have gone bad. Try using timed dry instead of auto dry.

Is heat supposed to be felt out the back of unit? I feel heat coming from around the tube in one spot

Yes, it's normal for the exhaust heat to be warm. Because it's a combination of the compressor heating up and the hot air be exhausted out of the house.. However, with that said, make sure the exhaust hose is securely attached and that he is not a pin hole or two, in the exhaust hose near the coupling. Also, make sure that you clean the air intake filter clean regularly.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks,

My Kenmore HE5 dryer will not run without blowing an internal fuse. The repairman replaced the fuse, and it blew again. The dryer heats up but will not turn it's heating element off until the fuse blows....

Has any one checked the exhaust vent,other than a bad thermostat the number one cause for the thermal fuse to open is a clogged or restricted exhaust vent flow, the entire vent system needs to be checked ( not just the hose from the unit to the wall) for proper air flow. Turn the unit on TIMED ,AIR DRY (NO HEAT) and go outside to the exhaust vent and check the air flow,if there is any question as to weather the air flow is sufishent get someone out to clean the exhaust vent ,it always a good idea to clean out every few years regardless to help prevent build up of lint witch could cause a fire......Hope this Helps Good Luck

My Maytag model LDE312 dryer heats up but doesn't seem to get hot enough. It takes 2 hours or more to dry. Is this a thermostat or heating element problem?

Could be a blockage in the exhaust. If the clothes are coming out hot but still damp after the first cycle then there is a blockage in the exhaust in the dryer. This blockage could be where the lint filter is or in the exhaust vent to the outside of the unit. The best thing to do is pull the unit from the wall and access the back panel. Remove the back panel and with a wet/dry vac clear out the inside of the unit. Then check for a lint blockage in the hose that is connected to the back of the dryer. That should have corrected your problem If an element goes out there is no heat at all and I doubt the thermostat would go out like that Maytags are rare to have a thermostat just go out

Hope this helped

Not drying enough

usually not drying enough, follows the statement long dry times, 2 or 3 cycles to complete the dry,
inspect your vent exhaust, and the entire length of the vent
you may have some sort of restrcction slowing down the exhaust which will cause heavy cycles,
the heat backs up inot the machine, and causes false high heat

The back of my dryer is getting very hot and actually tripped the breaker, also clothes taking forever to dry

Pull the exhaust vent off and check for obstructions, if there's no flow, all the heat is going to build up and also block any lint from escaping out the vent as well.
This can be a fire hazard as well. You may also need to open the dryer and clean out all the lint build up.
When you pull the pull flex hose off the back (the 4"diameter one) check in the back of the machine in the pipe and also in the flex tube. You may have to explore a little in the exhaust line to find the blockage...sounds like this is your issue...

Carrier Natural Gas Pack: Smell & Soot on exhaust tube

Time for a good cleaning. Make sure the heat exchanger is in good shape and is getting good heat flow over it to the exhaust. The odor may be an indication of a restriction in the heat exchanger, the flames are hitting something, improper air or gas adjustment or a blower not coming up to correct speed. You can access the heating unit from a side panel. Look for the exhaust port and start with that panel. Wasps nests are predominant in these things.
