Cleaning lint from back of dryer

I need to clean the lint from the back wall of the dryer, I can see it all in there but there doesnt seem to be a way to get it out. I think it is delaying the drying time.

    i dont think i can use a leaf blower or a vacuum attatchment pack, so any more ideas will be great. It sucks paying so much for a dryer that doesnt allow you to clean the lint out easily

This will definitely delay the drying time, and is also a severe fire risk!

If you are able to, it is sometimes best to replace the line, if it is the flexible line. If aluminum, you need to get a proper fitting attachment for your shop vac, or vacuum cleaner.

Either way there are products out there, if you don't have an attachment that will fit.

Here is one link, and there are many others available!

Good luck!

    So, your lint is in the dryer itself?



    You will need some sort of thin attachment to remove it.



    You could do the leaf blower trick, by blowing from the back exhaust of the dryer into the dryer, the big problem here, is you will have a laundry room full of lint!



    Good Luck, Brian.

Clothes come out mostly dry, but need to run a 10 or 15 more minutes to completely dry. Towels need 2 drying cycles. Lint filter is clean. Lots of lint behind dryer and I notice a lot of lint on...


you need to clean out the dryer.somewhere lint is blocking the air movement.pull off the vent line,if it's long blow it out with a leaf blower,then clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and vac out the cabinet where the motor is.if it's gas you should do this once a year electric once every two years.

My fridgidaire dryer model FDR336RDS2 seems to run too hot


Over heating in a dryer is almost always due to an air flow problem. Typically it is in the venting.

- Check the vent from the dryer to the wall by removing it and cleaning out, make sure there are no kinks or tears in it.

- Run the dryer once it is connected and feel outside to see if you are getting the same airflow outside as you can at the outlet of the dryer, if the air flow feels weaker outside your vent is restricted and you need to have it cleaned.

- If these are ok check your lint filter, softener residue can plug up the screen so air has trouble flowing trough it, you can wash it out with a brush and hot water

- With the lint screen out take a flashlight and look down the chute, if you see lint in there take a brush and vacuum and clean good

Dryer isn't drying as well as normal.Lint filter is clean.Doesn't seem to work any different on timed dry or auto dry.I have electrical exp. but no dryer exp.What should i check and how do I access it?


i belive you should check the vent hose from the dryer all the way to where it exits the house... that's usually the problem when dryers aren't drying as well as they shoud... lint wil start to cake on the walls of the vent and either create a complete block or slow the air down enough to keep it from circulating like it should

It is taking 3 full cycles to dry my small loads on my Maytag Performa PYE2300AYW. I have cleaned lint tray and trap. I need to clean the lint from the inside of my dryer - How do I do this?


The main area that you have to clean is the pipe leading from the back of your dryer to outdoors. Pull your dryer away from the wall. Unplug it. Unfasten the vent pipe. Now look into the back of the dryer exhaust and remove any lint you see there then look into the vent pipe and remove any lint. Finally go outdoors and remove any lint you see in the pipe or the pipe grill/cover.

Odor around the lint trap, cleaned but persists


The lint trap is an opening into the dryer vent and vent pipe. The dryer needs to be pulled out from the wall, the vent pipe disconnected and then the back of the dryer and the entire pipe cleaned of lint and other debris. this is the only way to get rid of the odor.
