Installed this unit 5 years ago and it worked okay untill a year ago; the drying performance has steadily deteriorated. we now have to run it through 2 cycles and it's still not dry. Checked and cleaned the vent but it's no better. The duct at the back of the dryer is warm but certainly not as hot as when new.

ANSWER Hello Jim. You need to disassemble the dryer and clean out the filter housing and the blower wheel on the unit. If the unit is heating, these could be restricted and causing the issue you are having.
