Dryer Vent Cleaning Service
Dryer vent cleaning up to 10 ft $125
Most dryer service calls are “airflow” related. In order for a dryer to work correctly you must have good airflow. This means intake air, and exhaust air from the dryer. If the dryer can’t breath, the dryer will run hotter. Hot is bad, especially when overheating a temperature fuse or sensors. This normally will cut off the heater circuit. (Clothes won't dry)
Solution: Clean the dryer intake vents often, normally on the back panel of the dryer.
A clogged house vent duct is even worse for your dryer. Now that the hot exhaust air won't exit efficiently, it creates a fire hazard with the back pressure inside the dryer. Back pressure inside the dryer is a bad thing to have. The lint trap will no longer be catching most of the lint, instead it's just circulating lint around the inside of the dryer. Both gas and electric dryers have open flames, or red hot elements that easily can ignite the lint as it passes through the heater.
Solution: Have your vent duct professionally cleaned, or at least clean it as a do it yourself project. We also sell the cleaning kits, available on our parts website. Part # RLE202
