Do you use fabric softener sheets?

If the blower is having a hard time drawing air thru the filter, common sense dictates that you replace the  filter.

They tend to get past the filter and restrict the exhaust vent.

Use one of those balls you load with a dryer sheet, It does a better job than just a dryer sheet and doesn't get sucked into the abyss. LOL

If you use fabric softener, you will have to do an additional step when cleaning your lint screen. Fabric softener contains certain chemicals that can actually clog the lint screen at a microscopic level. To test this, remove your lint screen and the lint on it, then run the screen under cold water briefly. Turn off the water and see if the water flows through the screen, or just puddles on top. If it puddles on top, you will have to clean the lint screen with warm water and dish soap. Once clean, test again and you will see that the water flows through. Perform this test periodically and clean as needed.

If the dryer is working, don't worry about it. Of course there will be a difference in air flow with the filter inserted, it's not something you pay attention to unless there's a problem.

What, you never held your hand over the end of a vacuum cleaner hose and listened to the motor change?


Maybe there's a reason the instructions say to clean the filter "before" each use, not during it. :)
