You only need to run 4" round for that, with that length of a run you are pushing what the dryers can handel but it should not be a problem

    No, I would keep them at a 4". Going up to 6" would make the dryers need to push harder to vent & open the dampers on the outside

Dryer takes hours to dry a load. I must run it through several cycles. Not much air coming out of outside vent so repairman suggested it be cleaned out. My husband completely removed it and found no...


My only thought is to look at the back of the drier. Check the hose coming out the back to the out side vent, and then run the drier with out the hose for a few moments. See if you have air moving then, if you have no air moving with out the hose attached. Your driers fan blades are ether clogged with lint or they have broken off some how.

My drier is a Maytag, it is not heating up the way it should be.


There is a chamber that the air blows down before hitting the vent pipe. It may need to be cleaned. But you want to make sure when you push your dryer back, that the vent doesn't kink. good luck. Overall you drier works, your just having a venting issue.

GE profile dryer not drying completley


Check that the vent outside (especially in northern climates this time of the year). Then check the hose that goes from the drier to the outside vent. Finally, check the drier itself, that there is no obstructions getting to the hose. Check the lint trap. Is it full or is it installed properly? If all this checks out, then try replacing the heating element. These are usually inexpensive, and fairly easy to replace. The manual for the drier should have diagrams on how to access it.
