What Are The Signs Of A Dirty Laser Lens?

My xbox 360 will go open tray for hours and after reopening it will finaly read the game. It takes around 30 - 60 secends of reading for it to give up. However sometimes(rarely) it goes unreconized disc. The xbox 360 is 4 years old and original. The laser seems to make some swissing/swishing sound. Is it a dirty laser lens because I have never cleaned it in all these years. What are signs of a dirty laser and not some other problem.

The signs of a dirty/faulty laser is it takes a while to read a disc and when it does it says its a DVD. It wont read. It'll spin up for 2 seconds and stop. Anything along those lines are signs of a dirty/faulty laser.
