Hello. I have a little problem and was wondering if anyone might have some ideas for me. Yesterday I noticed my dryer was taking FOREVER to finish drying a load of clothes. Today I spotted a wet spot on the ceiling below. Could these issues be realted? Could the vent be clogged and leaking? Condensation maybe? I checked the toliet and under all the sinks for leaks but didn't find any.

** I noticed my dryer was taking FOREVER to finish drying a load of clothes. **

The most common cause of that is a plugged, partially plugged or poorly install (see the following link) dryer vent.

- How long can my dryer vent be?

Below the dryer??

Yes, that could be a possibility (see the link above). Did you check the venting? It should be *thoroughly* cleaned several times a year regardless.

** [The vent] appears to be the problem. **

Glad to hear you found the problem. Be sure to correct it once and for all as bad venting is a major cause of house fires!

JFYI
