Customer Question
I own a model...

I own a model DV48H and since it's purchase we have an excessive amount of dust in the house. The lint catcher is constantly getting full and the compartment has to be vacumned. Also the rear vents are very dirty from the lint. Can there be a internal leak in the lint system causing this?

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Shortly after it's purchase.

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

NO I am not.

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

Is there any recalls on this dryer or have there been any other complaints concerning lint leaks?

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

DV48H7400EW/A2 Unit maybe 2 years old.
