Sometimes cleaning the vent system isn't enough, and a new dryer part is a much better option. Replacement dryer parts for the vent system should be used if your old vents are flexible, plastic or foil. For maximum efficiency, your GE dryer parts, Maytag dryer parts, etc, should be made of rigid metal ducting, about four inches in diameter. Use as few "elbows" or bends in the pipe as possible and don't allow the duct system to be bent or crushed. No matter what brand your dryer parts may be, following these instructions will increase the efficiency of your dryer and improve the life of the machine.
