Dryer How to Clean Exhaust / Vent Duct
Inspect and clean the exhaust ducting at least once a year to prevent clogging. A partially clogged exhaust can lengthen the drying time.
Follow the below steps to clean:
- Turn off electrical supply by disconnecting the plug from the wall socket.
- Disconnect the duct from the dryer.
- Vacuum the duct with the hose attachment and reconnect the duct.
The Exhaust Hood (Wall Cap): Check from the outside that the flaps of the hood move freely when operating. Make sure that there is not wildlife (birds, insects, etc.) nesting inside the duct or hood.
