  • Replace any plastic or metal foil vent with a rigid or flexible heavy metal vent.

  • Use only 4" diameter heavy metal exhaust vent material. Larger or smaller diameter material will reduce good air movement and cause longer drying times.

  • A dryer vent test, part #W11224254, is available for all dryers. This vent test kit will help you to determine if the venting is restricted and needs to be cleaned. To order, contact Customer Service.
