Dryer Troubleshooting

If your dryer isn't drying, troubleshoot your vent before calling for service - especially if you’re running it twice to get clothes dry.  If your dryer’s vent system is clogged, moist air won’t exhaust as well and it will take longer for your clothes to dry.  It's also a fire hazard!

Here’s how to test your vent to see if it’s clogged:

  • Run your dryer for at least 5 minutes
  • Find your exhaust hood on the exterior of your home and use your hand to feel for air movement. If it’s less than a hair dryer on high speed, clean the lint from the entire length of the system and exhaust hood.
This should be done about every two years.  If you're still having issues with your dryer after cleaning the vent, don't hesitate to give us a call.  425 258-4557
