Probably the hardest, and yet the easiest to solve, issue with dryers is a clogged dryer vent. As a result of using flexible duct, you run the risk of greatly restricting the airflow from the dryer, causing the dryer to work harder to expel the moisture and heat, which may result in poor performance or automatic shutoff.
