sorry Patricio, for missing this one.
Have this problem when you run into old lines. or ones that are not used often & far away from main supply. even on 3 year old homes.
I have devised a fitting with plastic tubbing, & flush that line for about 5 min.
1 to 3 five gallon buckets will not be enough.
After i did that (customer had other service companies out that failed) he was so happy he put a great review on google.
He originally rejected the idea because he had tried himself to do that.
Its the volume like 20-50 gallons at least.

I have used single screw type wire connectors, before with a dab of electrical anti oxidizer, used it on all OLD wax coated wiring & contacts.

make sure seals are good, (foam around manifold to blower or the filter housing) .
I also use a whirlpool airflow meter to test the customers vent, definitely an air flow problem, either the dryer or the vent hose in the wall.
They may need to call a vent cleaning company, I always check air flow when it comes to burnt thermal fuse, saves me recalls, absolves me from "you did not fix it right, doing same thing".
I show them the meter & tell them there is no warranty if they do not call to clean it.
