What you need to know before you begin your clothes dryer repair is that you may need to check a few different things before finding the actual cause.

Have you noticed that when you are running a load of laundry through your dryer that the heat inside the dryer is hotter than normal? Does the top of the dryer feel hot as well? Before starting your dryer you should understand that this problem can be related to a number of different things.

The first thing you need to do is check your lint filter. If you find the lint filter is dirty, clean out all of the lint and replace the filter. Restart your dryer and allow it to heat up again. If you notice the dryer continues to get too hot, turn off the dryer and allow it to cool for a while.

Now for the fun part. What you need to do now is unplug your dryer and pull it out and away from the wall. Pull your dryer vent hose out from the back of the dryer and from the wall. Check the inside of the vent hose for any lint build up. If you find any lint, be sure to clean it out before reattaching your vent hose to your machine and the wall connection.

If you have the old fashioned vent hose made of plastic, you should replace it. You should go to your hardware store and pick up a flexible metal vent hose instead. Plastic vents can cause a fire: Click learn more.
