I consider myself a reasonably intelligent woman with 2 college degrees, but what I’m about to tell you may leave you questioning! LOL
Lately I have been noticing that my dryer has been having to go through 2 cycles in order to dry my clothes. All I could think of is that this dryer is NOT that old to be doing this! I have been cleaning the screen of lint religiously and doing around with the brush to get extra lint that the screen might not have caught.( I purchased the brushes years ago from the Flylady website which I love) I also noticed that I’m was just not getting the lint that so many flybabies talk about getting out…like in gobs! And I was wondering why!
I have been known to take off the vent hose and see if it was clean, but what I DIDN’T do was see if lint was building up in that vent going to the outside!!!! A few minutes ago, I checked that vent and I could not believe how much lint was blocking that vent!!! GOBS!!!!! It was a FIRE waiting to happen!! And to think that I was about to buy ANOTHER dryer! Come to think of it, I think I probably have purchased several new dyers in the past thinking mine were broken when in reality, lint was more than likely blocking the outside vent making it close to impossible to dry my clothes!
I’m sure this has been explained before, but obviously I just didn’t fully understand where I was to be looking for all this lint. Like I said…I FEEL SO DUMB and SLOW!!!LOL If this testimonial will help anyone that may not be sure where all to look for dryer lint, I am gladly willing to reveal how dumb I was! LOL
Thanks for all your wisdom that you impart! I have been with you since 2002 and I’m better for it!!!
