Now to clean your dryer vent is not rocket science. It involves you to first unplug the dryer from both gas and electric. Then pull the dryer out just to the extension of your vent which is usually about 1 1/2 to 2 feet. Please make sure you use a screwdriver or nut driver to loosen the 4″ clamp (vent clamp) on the back of the dryer.
After this, gently slide the vent off the dryer and reach into the hole on the back of the dryer, and pull out any lint and buildup. Most of the lint will build up at the ends (within a foot), and not so much in the middle of the vents. It is important that you reach in as far as you can so that you can clean out all the lint build up. A shop or house vacuum cleaner can help reach inside and usually does a good job of removing the lint.
