Dryer vent clamp should work o.k.. make sure the garbage can is vented so air can escape. cut a @ 4" hole in the can near the top (or in the lid) and use silicone to cover the hole from the inside with household window type screen

I have a W/pool awz135/3. The dryer runs etc, approx 15 mins of drying the lint filter light and buzzer comes on, and in turn shuts the heat off.No lint is in the unit.Any idea what is triggering this

It is possible there is an obstruction in the exhaust vent ducting or vent grill.first disconnect the power then carefully pull dryer away from the wall and look in the back of the dryer towards the bottom and you should see a ribbed 4" hose coming out of the dryer leading to a vent duct in the wall.make sure the hose is not pinched or collapsed if it is remove the pinch plug dryer in and try it and see if it still shuts down.if it does disconnecr the power again but this time get a 5/16 nut driver if the hose is connected with a metal hose clamp and remove both clamps on at the dryer and one at the vent.ic you have Plastic.clamps remove by pushing release tab on clamps and remove. Check inside hose for any obstructions and remove if any are present then. Check the vent duct and do the same. Reattach hose and clamps reconnect power and test and see if problem is solved if so push dryer back to original position taking care not to pinch
the hose.if the problem persist the dryer may have a faulty temperature high limit switch and gets quite a bit more involved.but try this first and see how it goes then if you want I can guide you on how to approach replacing the high limit switch if needed.

Hoe do i fix the venting hose

The dryer vent can be fixed with several types of product. The best choice is the solid aluminum pipe that usually comes in 2ft sections but will need cut to proper size and joined with metal elbows. Not hard if you are handy. Next choice is the flexible metal pipe that attaches with big clamps. Last choice is the Flexible type that looks like aluminum foil which also attaches with clamps. DO NOT USE THE WHITE PLASTIC FLEXIBLE VENT PIPE. IT IS A FIRE HAZZARD.

Clothes are taking way too long to dry. I do have some heat but not that much. Also sometimes when the clothes are dry and I take them out just before the timed cycle is done the dryer gets very hot on the...

Hello. It sounds to me like your exhaust vent tube is blocked with lint. They sell them at many stores like Walmart or Meijers. I would recommend the flexible metal foil type, which costs a little more than white plastic but restricts the airflow less. Also check the flapper door on the outlet which should be outside your house near the ground. Just make sure that it flaps freely and isn't clogged with debris. When you get the new vent hose, pull the dryer out, away from the wall (carefully! there may be flexible gas lines attached to the dryer!) Remove the old flexible vent pipe tube and attach the new one in the same spot. The ends should just slide together to make a tight friction connection. If you use large hose clamps, be careful not to tighten them too much to avoid crushing the tube.

Note: The shorter the exhaust pipe is, the faster your clothes will dry. If the distance from the dryer to the exhast hole in the wall is greater than 6 feet, I recommend using the larger 6" diameter metallic hose to ensure adequate airflow.

Dryer won't dry clothes

In alot of cases, it's your dryer vent. Does it have enough airflow? Is it clogged up? If you're using the foil flex vent or worse, the plastic vent, then it may be crushed preventing the proper airflow needed. First thing first, pull your dryer out and check the venting. Take it off by removing the clamp, either it is a spring clamp that you can remove with your fingers or its an auto clamp that you will need a crewdriver for. If there is alot of buildup in the vent then it needs to be replaced. Look into the back of the dryer, is there anything in the dryer itself that is blocking airflow. I have seen may times where money, paper, even dishrags get sucked down in the venting area and constrict the airflow. If your venting does not go straight out of the wall then you may need to check the rest of the venting that runs throughout the house. There are service people that will come out and clean these for you, however not sure of the cost. Depending on your sitaution, you may be able to replace this yourself as it is quite easy. I have seen people with 30-40 ft length venting and the airflow pressure just isn't there no matter what dryer you're using. If this is the case, then your venting needs to be checked often.

If you are crushing your vent then I would suggest going to the local Home Depot, Lowes, etc.. and buy the semi rigid venting with a swivel elbow. This vent is very hard to crush and with the swivel elbow, it allows you to move the dryer back and forth without popping off the vent if you ever need to get behind of it for cleaning, etc... This vent is also top of the line and is mandated by major install companies throughout the nation. The only drawback is that it may stick your dryer out another 1-2 inches, but from a safety standpoint, it is the best on the market.

Unfortuantely, if it's not the vent then a service tech would have to be called to come and check it out. With the Harmony Profile series, I wouldn't call just any mom and pop service company. That series has very unique parts so I would get someone recommended by the manufacturer. Call GE at 1-800-GE CARES, they should be able to help you regardless if its under warranty or not. GE keeps parts for 30 years on every model product that they make, I couldn't see them not trying to help. Good luck.

1995 maxima fuel filler tube

Are you going to get a new one, or a junkyard replacement?
You have to take off the rear left tire. Secure the car with jack stands and chucks. There is a plastic cowl on the wheel-well that covers the filler tube to prevent road damage. Take it off. The filler tube is attached to the gas tank through a rubber connector hose (tube) adapter, secured to the gas tank and to the filler tube by hose clamps. Loosen both clamps.. You should replace the rubber connector, as it has been there for many years, and rubber degrades. Loosen about three or four bolts along the filler tube that attach it to the car body. The top part, by the gas lid, comes off easily, it's just a plastic dam. You have to carefully work it off the (other end) at the rubber hose connector. Once it's out, get the hose connector off the gas tank neck.
With the new filler tube, reverse the process. Getting the hose clamp tight over the gas tank neck is hard. Make sure the clamp is seated properly before tightening.
Good luck!

My Insinkerator garbage disposal leaks out of a "weep hole " in the side casing when the dishwasher is draining. What is the issue?

Hello Greenj,
I am not sure I unbderstand your problem based on the description you've provided but maybe I can explain the basics of your garbage disposal system. Most , if not all garbage disposal systems include a 'knockout' plug for side input of a dishwasher. There eran't any weep holes in any that I know of.. Just the feed opening at the top, a side drain opening that normally includeds a gasket and adapter to be tied into your drain system and a stub on the side ( near the top) that has a knockout inside in case you wantto attach the drain hose of a built in dishwasher to it. If that is where your seeing water leaking than and you do not have a dishwasher attached to it, then you may want to add a section of hose to it with a hose clamp and plug one end to keep water from leaking out. I don't know if I've helped you but I took a shot.. Hope this helps.. If so.. please rate this response accordingly.. Good Luck !

I need to change the exhaust pipe vent for my tumble dryer. it has ripped. how do i go about fixing this or do i need a professional?

you can put an aluminum duct tape to the ripped portion just to stop hot air from venting from the damaged portion. or if the ripped portion is near the end where you put the flexible hose, then maybe you can move the flexible hose as far as it can reach as to cover the ripped portion of the vent pipe. then secure the flexible hose with a good hose clamp. i hope i was able to help
