    Overloading the dryer stops it from drying well

    I’m lucky that my dryer vent is short. I was able to use the short pipe with vent cover attached, a 90° fixed elbow, and an elbow that I made into a 45° by turning a couple parts of it. With the short length of the vent, it barely collects lint. My old place had a long pipe going thru the crawl space. While free flowing, it collected lint, and had to be cleaned twice a year. Thankfully I’ve only had to do that twice in 8 years at my current place, due to the current setup.
