Yesterday I noticed that the vent inside my dryer is black. I donít know how long it has been like that. It doesnít come off with a wet towel or onto the clothes it is drying. I am not sure if that is normal or if my dryer is running hot. After running it for a bit I used an infrared thermometer to check the temperatures - the vent grating was around 270 degrees but the dryer wall was only around 130. You can see in the picture how dark the vent is. Can anyone tell me if this is normal and if not what I should do about it... Thank you.
