“Lint begins to accumulate inside a dryer chassis upon first use. Lint accumulates inside a dryer even with properly vented exhaust ducting and with a properly maintained lint screen. Lint accumulates on the dryer’s components, including the heater and the dryer floor. Seals in the dryer’s interior exhaust venting may not be adequate to prevent linty air from escaping into the dryer’s interior."
Consumer Product Safety Commission 2003 Clothes Dryer & Lint Ignition Report
According to FEMA, "failure to clean" your dryer chassis & vent system is the #1 cause of the dryer related fires that occur annually. A small percentage of the lint generated in each dryer cycle bypasses your lint filter. Some adheres to both the dryer and the dryer vent system and does not make it outdoors
In some dryer vents, a 1/4 inch build-up in the vent can cause the machine to work 40% harder. Dryer vents do not need to be totally plugged before before they start to affect machine performance or cause problems. How much lint build-up it takes to affects your unit depends on various factors.
After a thorough cleaning, proper air flow through both the machine and dryer vent is reestablished allowing your clothes dryer to breathe freely.
