Replace White Vinyl Dryer Ducting

I have spoken, written, talked, videoed (?) on this topic for years now and yet I still find this stuff behind dryers.  The stuff I speak of is white vinyl dryer ducting or more correctly, transition hose.  At some point in history, say the 90’s, for some reason this stuff started to get used to connect dryers to the homes…

Dryer Vent Booster Fan Installation and Repair

Well I think it has been all of 3 weeks since I last spoke of dryer vent booster fans, but another booster fan had began to cause problems for this homeowner so it appears service was in order.  I have talked little about these booster fans simply because most homes do not possess them.  Technically by code, they are not…

Water Leaking from Dryer Vent Indicates a Serious Airflow Restriction

Water leaking from the dryer venting is always something I find interesting because in order for the ducting to get to this point, many years of maintenance have been missed.  And in most cases, such as in this home installation, the dryer venting isn’t the only expense for sure.  This ducting I would say was a contributing factor to 3…

Dryer Vent Installation, Shorter is always Better

This post ties in with the one from last week regarding a dryer booster fan making noise and the creative venting that caused it.  The best way to get your dryer working as efficiently as possible is to ensure proper airflow, and proper airflow comes from short vent runs.  And when I say short, I don’t mean actual length from…

Noisy Dryer Vent Booster Fan

I don’t speak much about dryer vent booster fans because for the most part, I never have had to deal with them.  In general, adding a fan to a dryer vent isn’t something  that is done and is usually prohibited by code unless specifically requested by an inspector.  They are usually found in homes or buildings where the dryer vent…

Much of what I write about involves getting more airflow from your dryer. Because it is the air that dries the clothes.  But some may ask exactly what is good airflow?  Well the unfortunate answer really is it depends on many factors, but suffice it to say, the higher the better.  One tool I use to test airflow is a…

Whirlpool Dryer Not Heating

Model #LEP6646AW0, the complaint was the unit would not dry clothes and the customer would need to start the dryer several times just to get one load dry. Needing multiple cycles to dry a load of clothes is a sure sign of a restricted venting system and this was most likely the case here. But this dryer was not heating…

Dryer Vent Installation in Existing Crawlspaces

I do a lot of dryer vent installation work, most of which is to replace venting that has either seen better days, or simply was not installed correctly to begin with.  And until laundry rooms on the second floor of homes became popular, most of this venting took its journey to the outside world via the homes crawlspace. But sometimes,…

Whirlpool Dryer Runs to Long

Model #WED9400SW0, this Duet styled dryer would dry clothes properly, but the display would count down to around 8 minutes remaining, and then would just keep running until the customer shut the unit off manually. And to make the trouble shooting process just a little bit harder, this unit was only 3 months old, and installed in a garage without…
