Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Sorry to hear you are having problems with your dryer. The most common problem and the first thing you should try so that a venting issue on your home is ruled out is to take the vent hose off the dryer and run a cycle and see if the dryer dries properly if so then the vent on your home is stopped up and needs to be cleaned out. However if the dryer still does not dry properly with the vent hose removed let me know and we will go from there, thanks.

I kindly ask at this time that you go ahead and click on the 5th star of the star rating system at the top of your page. Afterwards If you have any follow up questions they will be free and I will continue to help until you are completely satisfied. It's very much appreciated, Thank You!
