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:

  1. Turn off electrical supply by disconnecting the plug from the wall socket.
  2. Disconnect the duct from the dryer.
  3. 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.
