Lowes installed the second dryer in four years in our Davidson, NC rental TH. The installation was done with hard piping not flexible venting.

After a year the lint built up to dangerous levels. Eventually, the dryer heating element overheated and shut down the dryer entirely.

Lowes would not warrant the repair nor the damaged dryer. The new dryer installer informed us we were quite fortunate the whole place didn't burn down. Our tenant also informed us that the Lowes installer was quite rude and broke the bi folding door tracks.

No more shopping at Lowes, especially after numerous repairs to our 'John Deere' tractor-equipped with plastic gears and recycled battery-oh yes, purchased at Lowes!

Reason of review: Bad quality.

Monetary Loss: $253.

Preferred solution: Full refund.

Lowes Cons: Installation and warranty.

Lint is much less likely to build up in rigid dryer vent than it is in a flexible vent. There are many more places for lint to catch on and build up in a flexible pipe.I would question whether or not your tenant was using or properly cleaning the lint trap in the dryer.
