Not sure you have an electric or gas model but from your description, you aren't getting any heat generated. Could be a temp switch disabling the element ( electric) or gas from coming in to be ignited for a flame.. Please provide brand and model number so we can assist you more accurately...

I have a dryer # 67832791 and doesn't seem like it heats up and takes longer to dry the clothes. Seems to run fine and operate fine just not drying the clothes.


restriction in the venting, disconnect vent tube, leave disconnected dry clothes and if they dry then clean out vent tube(vacuum, leaf blower, etc). Hope this helped Tim

Have a whirlpool cabrio gas dryer. It takes several hours to dry one load of clothes. The clothes seem to stay damp towels may take all day... what could be the problem


Have you opened the door while its running to see if its warm inside (heater working) If its getting warm and still not drying the clothes properly you likley have a air circulation concern. With the unit running check the exhaust vent outside from dryer it should have a good flow of warm air, if not you have a restriction sowher between the unit and outside. Heat alone will take forever to dry clothing,you need good air circulation to remove the moisture from the clothes otherwise all you will end up with is warm moist clothing.This generaly happens over a long period of time and then all of a sudden you realize the dryer is not working like it use to..Hope this helps you with your concern.....

Frigidaire Front Load Dryer Model # leq2152eeo Problem: it is not drying the clothes. The dryer heats up and everything else is working, except it takes 4 cycles to dry something that should have dried...


while the dryer is running.go to the outside of the house and check the air flow,there should be a large amount air being blown out if there is not check the vent and ducting for lint build up and make sure the hose is not kinked.
when there is restricted air flow all the warm moist air will stay in side the dryer causing the clothes to take a long time to dry. i hope this helps you with your dryer

Clothes get warm but stay wet and do not fully


You need to check the venting. Take the vent hose off the back of the dryer and try drying a load with it off and see if it will fully dry. If so, clean the vent hose.

Everything works but no heat to drying clothes. Gas is turned on and every so often the clothes are kinda warm, but minimum 2 dry cycles to get stuff dry


i would check my exhaust vent here, make sure you have good airflow
let it stand for a while, and start it up let run
are you getting any heat, put you hand tword the back
if you getting dry by very low heat, i would suspect you gas coils, two bullets on the top of the gas valve

Dryer does not get hot enough to dry clothes Roper REX4634KQ1 Electric Dryer


The vent may be stopped up, or the vent hose crimped so the air cannot escape, you can check the air flow at the vent on the outside of the house while the dryer is running.
try cleaning the vent and the lint screen with a vacuum cleaner, you may need to replace the vent hose, this should solve the problem

2 to 3 cycles to fully dry clothes


if the clothes are warm after the cycle then you need to make sure the vent to the outside of the house is not plugged if they are not warm then it is in the heating circuit of the dryer wether it be the element or a fuse will have to be tested. to dry clothes it takes heat and air flow if you dont have one of the two they will not dry correctly

Gas dryer runs, cleaned hose, get warm does not heat up to dry


with a gas dryer in which your assured te hventing is free and clear of any obstructions, i would look to replace the coil pack located atop the gas valve itself, probably about $25 part number 279834... 2 coils simply mount atop the valvle
