Thanks for the PSA. This may make me seem about as smart as a sack of bricks, but could you maybe provide a photo of where to open up the dryer?


don't forget to check the exhaust hose, it builds up there as well!

Glad you shared your story :). As the grand-daughter of a fireman, we had so many "don't do this" mantras! A few I have slacked on, but for the most part, I am extra careful. And yes, the dryer is on the list.

Also, when I was doing research for my new dryer a few years ago, I found out that gas dryers should have a straight smooth pipe for the exhaust, not the flexible hose you can use for electric dryers. If I remember correctly, it is because the air is heated more. Needless to say, there was much grumbling, but I wouldn't budge and the exhaust was changed along w/ the dryer...
