    So tired of techs and service companies posting long winded videos titled "how to troubleshoot a _____". All he says is check for lint, which he could've done in 15 seconds. You don't need a service company to clean your vent either. Just unhook the dryer vent hose and vacuum it out with a shop vac. If your dryer isn't getting hot, just replace the heating element, and sometimes the thermostat. Very easy to do. Don't be scared to try. Not turning? See if you need a new belt.
