My dryer is very slow -- three hours to dry a load of t-shirts/jeans.
Had the dryer vent cleaned out six months ago. There is visible condensation blowing out the outside dryer exhaust while drying (although only one of the four plastic flaps seems to be fluttering). I can't look inside the exterior vent because the exhaust is 20 feet above ground.
The dryer seems to be getting appropriately hot and tumbling properly.
If I knew it was the dryer, I would just get a new one. Should I have the vent cleaned out again? Is there an easy way to check whether the dryer is the problem, perhaps by checking the temperature while drying, or some such?
Thanks in advance for any help.
