A clothes dryer works by forcing hot air through a turning drum. Wet clothes placed in the drum are then dried by the moving hot air. It is possible for a full load of wet clothes to contain as much as one and a half gallons of water.
Lint is created from the clothes as the water is removed and the clothes dry. While much of the lint is trapped by the filter, lint also is carried through the venting system, together with moist air.
The accumulation of lint, both in the dryer and in the vent, reduces the airflow and creates a highly flammable fuel source.
In addition to the accumulation of lint, blockage in exhaust vents also can occur from the nests of small birds and animals or from bends in the venting system itself. A compromised vent will not exhaust properly to the outside. Overheating may result.
If enough heat is produced to ignite the lint itself or nearby combustible items, such as the clothes in the dryer or combustibles left nearby, the engineered safety mechanisms are compromised and fire ensues.

If you shorten your dryer vent hose, your clothes will dry 20%-25% faster. This means saving money over the course of a year
We all know the importance of cleaning lint from the dryer vent trap. But many of those tiny holes in the mesh can get partially to completely clogged without your noticing. Dryer sheets can cause a waxy buildup. You need to give that mesh trap a good washing with warm soapy water every month. The dryer will run more efficiently
If you're in a hurry to dry a load of wet clothes, toss in a clean dry cotton towel. It will soak up some of the moisture, causing the clothes to dry faster. Larger loads might require 2 towels.
Always wash and dry dark clothes inside out to reduce any visible lint that might form on clothes.
Always wash and dry lighter weight clothes first. By drying those heavy items second, the dryer will already be hot, thus cutting your drying time.
Simply by placing your clothes in a plastic clothes basket a few hours before putting them in a dryer can reduce the drying time by 25%.
