Question about Dryers

Clothes won't dry

When I try to dry a load of clothes they don't dry. when I open the dryer door there is a lot of steam and the clothes seem more moist than when I put them in. I have already checked the lint catcher on top but it is pretty clean. Is there an exhaust outlet/tube somewhere on it that may be clogged? If so where is it located? it does not appear to be on the back,

Dryers exhaust from either of 4 directions! left side, right side, rear, or straight down through the floor!
Yes the outside exhaust vent may have a screen to keep small animals from going in!
If the screen is even half clogged with lint you will have the identical problem.
Bless You,
Please give me a good rating for this most likely solution, Please!

Remember if any appliance is 9 years old or more, a new one will be much much more cost efficient and pay for it self in only a couple of years!

My dryer won't dry

This particular dryer has a blower wheel that is plastic. Over time the wheel gets wobbly and loose. If you hear a rattle that could be the loose blower wheel. This causes the dryer to overheat and take 3 times as long to dry clothes because it trips the limits. To get into the dryer and find out you need to first remove the door. Nice how to video from Angel:

The dryer door always pops open stopping the dryer... how do I make it stay shut so the clothes will get dry without having to close the door every other minute?

Try putting less of a load in dryer. The weight of the clothes riding against the door, may be the reason why it pops open.

Check your venting. If the water vapor can't get all the way outside, your dry times will be longer than usual and the steam will come out the front when you open the door. You may need to clean your ducting, which is a good idea anyway to reduce fire risk.

Dryer gets VERY hot but clothes do not dry

Your exhaust vent is blocked.
Remove the rear vent and run a load.
If it dries normally repair your vent.
It (the vent)may be clogged internally.

Clothes wont dry but gets really hot

Hello, sounds like your cold water feed hose has got a kink in it. The machine needs cold water to condense the steam. Just pull out the machine and slowly slide back into place.

Drying cycle

Is the drying fan rotating(you should hear this)? Or the watertap closed. It uses cold water to make the steam into condense. If tap is closed, the machine has no water to cool the steam with. Check lint filter.

Wd63 washer dryer when complete when i open the door alot of hot steam comes out

your water supply to the machine has been turned off, or the triplewater valve has gone open circuit on the condensor solaniod if you have a multimeter you can test the valves unplug the machine from the mains and turn the cold water supply off , take the back panel off take 2 wires off at a time and test each solanoid they should read around 3800 ohms if you nget no reading on 1 of the solaniods thats you problem change the complete valve. good luck
