Short of going under the porch weekly to clean the lint off as it doesn’t stay fully closed what else can I do? The washer and dryer are on the first floor in a closet off the kitchen. I can feel the draft all around the dryer. I have looked online for options but all require more space around which I don’t have. I could extend the pipe 6 feet more to get past the porch. ￼￼￼
Are you saying it fills
With lint? There’s also limits to how long the dryer pipe can be , generally want it as short as possible
Sounds like the duct work has come apart. Pull the dryer out and make sure the ducting isn’t split apart. And if its that junk flexible ducting throw that away and use the tin hard ducting and seal the seams with tin tape.
How is that ledger board attached to your house?
Solid vent pipe from dryer to exterior vent, new exterior vent, regular cleaning is required. At one of our rentals we ran an exterior piece of schedule 40 past our deck so it was easier to snake and clean once a year. Also have an interior lint trap next to dryer that gets cleaned every week. Much easier access.
