Question about GE DBVH512EFWW Dryer
1 1/2 year old GE dryer takes 3 or more hours to dry. When I open the door it is hot inside, but water is dripping off of the door. We are ready to sell it and buy a different one.
Many people have purchased a new dryer because they perceived their
dryer as getting weak or old only to discover the same problem with
their new dryer and the real problem being a clogged vent.
LONG dry time is an indication of a clogged or restricted exhaust. Clogged or restricted exhaust is the primary cause of failure in all residential dryers. Blowing the the system with a shop vac is only a temporary solution. The system needs to be cleaned (1 to 3 times per year) with a rotary brush to scrape lint collecting from the sides of the pipe. Suggest going to a home improvement store or this website http://www.linteater.com and purchasing vent cleaning kit. Read instructions CAREFULLY. Also consider replacing flexible plastic or foil pipe with rigid metal type. Dryer will vent 30% to 40% better. If condition persists for too long, a high limit fuse mounted on the heater will open causing the heater to no longer operate.
