The damn dryer is gonna fill with lint. The damn thing is gonna burn out. Why do I have to take apart the entire dryer Everytime to replace it. πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•πŸ–•

Your vent ducting is likely quite restrictive causing extra lint to back -up inside the dryer.

A lot of time the dryer gets pushed back into the wall crushing down the flex duct between the dryer and wall.

It's a stupid long run. I need to clean it more often than I do.

How far is your run. Each elbow adds 5' . Use only solid pipe. Does it go out through wall or roof. 25 -30 is the nax run for a straight pipe. Reduced with each elbow

Look up the dryerjack vent hood video that goes over restriction of most roof vents.

It has a progressive 90 degree turn probably 15 degrees at a time. That ends in a sharp 90 after travelling 40 feet... I need to redo the whole deal but its kinda low on the shit I need to fix around here list...
