An easy way to determine if proper venting is the problem is to check the air flow for the exhaust vent. While the dryer is running, go to where the vent end is on the outside of your home to see if there is a good airflow coming out with your hand. If the dryer has already heated the air should also be hot. If you don't feel a good airflow the vent hose needs a good cleaning. Keeping the vent clean and clear will dry your clothes faster and save you money.

Make sure that the flex hose going out from the dryer is not blocked. You should check it from both the back of the dryer and all the way to wear it vents outside. It could also be the thermostat, which is cheaper to replace than buying a new dryer.

I have a washer dryer combo DWC LD1013 it stoped drying. My clothes are more wet when put in to dry. The clothes would be extremely hot but all wet. It works 1 cycle and then stops. Please help ????


In order to dry cloths, you need two things, heat source and air flow. Sounds like you have heat but no air flow. If you can, pull unit out and check vent for washer. Look around unit and make sure there is nothing blocking any vents. If you don't see any thing, try drying with vent not installed. I run into a lot of homes with clogged vents inside walls. By drying with no vent installed, it might tell you if you have dryer problem or a home issue. Good Luck

Dryer was running longer than we thought it should. Now timer will not move and it does not dry the clothes. Could this be a switch problem or a heating element problem


Check your vent outside of your home or apartment. If you are not feeling anything heat or air, then it is clogged. Clean the vent and it should be alright. If you had on the sensor dry that could be the reason why your timer wasn't moving.

The dryer drum moves but no heat. Clothes do not


most of the time it is the heating coil their is a
series of springs the heat up and then the blower
sends air pass them and into the dryer to dry the clothes
you will need to remove the back of the dryer
and get to the heating element and look at it
and see it any of the springs are broken
cost for the part 80.00 maybe
good luck

Does not heat


"Steam drying will get how but the air that comes later to actually dry is cold so the clothes never dry"

I am assuming "how" means hot in this sentence, if so, I think I can help! There is no "steam drying" phase for your dryer so what is probably happening is; the wet clothes are being heated properly [as a result causing steam] however if this steam does not escape frum the dryer it will simply condense back onto the clothing [leaving them moist/wet].
Check your flexible tube from the dryer and the vent on the outside of your home to make sure they are unobstructed. Hope this helps!

Dryer not completely drying clothes.


Cleaning the lint trap of the dryer may is not enough in some cases. I suspect you may have a problem with the vent ducting that extends from the the exhaust of the dryer to where it exits your home. The majority of dryer heat realted problems are due to poor ventilation and clogged vents. I dryer left in this condition will overheat to the point of failure. Not to mention, this creates a fire hazard and a habitat for rodents.

A simple test to determine if you have a dryer ventilation problems is to remove the vent hose from the back of the dryer and attempt to dry a load WITHOUT the vent hose attached. The air exiting the back of the dryer should be warm and forceful. If the clothes dry normally, then you need to inspect your vent ducting from where it enters the wall, to where it exits the home.

If the air flow is weak and your clothes still take a long time to dry, then you need to inspect the INTERIOR ducting of the dryer. Namely, the air blower housing. I suspect you'll find your clothes will dry better with the vent hose removed. Since it dried normally BEFORE you moved, and now it doesn't, you need to take a serious look at where the vent exhausts to. If the ducting runs through and attic or crawl splace they typically development sags, kinks and can clog. The rule of thumb when it comes to ducting: the SHORTER and STRAIGHTER, the better. Every bend you put into a dryer vent creates resistance to air flow, makes the dryer blower fan work harder and creates choke points where lint can accumulate and clog. Perform this simple prelimnary check and let me know what you find. I hope you find this advice helpful.

PS Do not run your dryer for extended periods of time without the exhaust hose attached. This will add humidity to your home and potential mildew. One load should be enough to determine if you have a problem. Don't run it this way as a normal everyday routine.
