Customer Question
My BravosXL dryer sensor...

My BravosXL dryer sensor he dryer keeps shutting off and saying check your lint screen check vent. Help, this is very annoying, I cleaning the screen after every drying and today wouldn't even dry two hand washable items.

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your dryer? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Maytag Bravos XL about two years old.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No, just need to know if I need to hire a technician or if there is an easy fix. I should say the man who installed it put in a funny vent, could this be my problem?

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No thats it

Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Its definitely the vent, whats happens when the vent does not allow proper air flow because its stopped up or its pinched and not letting airflow out correctly the hot air backs up into the dryer and makes the element cycle on and off way too fast which causes the dryer to not heat properly. The vent needs to be checked and fixed so that it allows proper airflow.
