Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
1. I do not understand your comment "try one load with venting off." Please explain. are you suggesting to pull the dryer out from the wall and disconnted the duct exhaust then test dry a load?
2. I am currently at work and will need to check model # XXXXX I get home tonight.
My handyman said the practice or advice that routine "cleaning out the dryer vent" is not necessary. It made sense to me since we had an older dryer unit over 10 years and never cleared the duct. Wondering if that is a common myth or misconception that it helps to improve drying and/or house fires? What you are asking us to do is not easy and will require hiring 2 people for half a day.
Ok. I will reply back with the requested information (model number) tomorrow.
I will still need to hire someone to check the outside vent outlet because it is located on the roof (washer and dryer on second floor). So, I would like to provide the information you initially requested to seek other possible causes. Will send tomorrow, thank you.
Hi docjohn174. Sorry for the delay in getting back in touch. I forgot to bring the information you requested yesterday. The model number of our dryer is GEW9200LW0
(all zeros, not letter "O").
Did you check the roof vent
Here is a breakdown of your dryer,for future
But I still think its on the roof
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX does this breakdown help me determine the cause if the outside vent is clear?
The roof vent already has a screen, it was placed when we installed the newCustomer and at the same time we cleaned out the duct (with leaf blower). While I agree with you that is the first thing to rule-out, I believe that is not likely the problem. Since I am unable to get our handyman to the house until June 1st (he is booked solid), thought I should be prepared as to the next step. You asked for the model number so I assumed that would help you inform us about the next most likely problem originating from the dryer itself.
