Mice can enter your home through very small holes. You don't want your dryer vent to become a thoroughfare for these pesky rodents. This is a guide about keeping mice out of a dryer vent.
I'm having trouble keeping mice out of my dryer vent. They sneak right in through the louvers.

I have a new Whirlpool Duet Steam dryer. It is only three months old and caught fire. The serviceman came today and discovered a mound of dog food stuffed around the heating element. The dog food and the mouse shorted the element causing it to over-heat and catch fire.
The serviceman said that the elements in top loaders are standing straight up where the front loaders are sideways letting pests make nests. If I hadn't been home my house would have been destroyed. The warranty won't fix my $1500 dryer for liability issues. Any suggestions?
