Get that dang filter housing OUT of the dryer and clean it out. Get the mess out of the blower housing and the dryer as a whole. break it all down and clean it up. Make sure your outside vent is open too. Or you will continue to have problemas amigo!

What I think happened is, It wasnt vented right, I think it got moved and the hose was moved out of the wall so it was just going directly behind the dryer. I know to tighten that up super good next time...


And no I cannot wait for the shipping, I am going to go pick one up tomorrow.

Thanks to all again. Very much appreciated.
