This is so because your dryer vent is either completely clogged with dirt and lint or it is damaged. If you found a damage or crack, it must be in the duct. Explore the vent duct for more damages. Pull the dryer away from the wall to get to the rear part of the vent. Remove the duct from your dryer and pay close attention to the remaining part of the duct.

If your duct has small cracks or leakages, you can easily repair these with specialized duct tape. Keep in mind that duct tape is very useful for repairing smaller damages but not bigger ones. Wrap the tape around the crack to mend any leakages.

There is a plethora of vent ducts available in the market which makes finding the right model difficult. It is recommended to carry your dryer’s manufacturer’s manual to avoid any confusion at the time of buying the new duct. Replace your broken duct with a new one and make sure you seal it properly before turning the dryer on.
