Hello, please help me. I have a stackable washer and dryer and the dryer is not drying. I live in an apartment building on the first floor. I hired a guy to come and clean out the lint and the hose. He did that and it stil doesn't work. Does he need to get on the apartment roof? When I disconnect it it dries but not great. Please help me! Thank you!

Thanks,

Ok, so with the exhaust hose off it drys better but still not as good?

Remove your lint filter then get your vacuum cleaner with the long skinny attachment and vacuum down in where the lint filter goes, get as far down as you can go to suck up all the lint. That filter duct being clogged with lint would also contribute to this problem.

Hi Jake,
No, it still takes a couple of cycles to dry the clothes. Any other suggestions?
Greatly appreciated!

Did you vacuum out under the lint filter?

Ok good.

If you have a meter that can read temperatures, leave the vent hose off and take a temperature at the vent (A meat thermometer will work) You're looking for somewhere between 160*F and 190*F.

Yup, time for a new one. The average life of these are only 8-12 years now.
