Re: dryer not getting clothes dry
This will most likely be a problem with the heating element or a thermal cutout which are usually located on or around the element.some makes have cutouts with a reset button whitch when pressed will restore heat.

Run the dryer for 2-5 minutes. Check to see if it has heat inside. If not, you have an internal problem. If heat is generated, check your dryer lint trap. It must be clean before every dry cycle to dry properly and efficently. If the trap is clean and heat is generated, check the tubes behind the dryer for disposing of the lint.
clean out lint filter check the vent hose make sure you are getting a air flow out your vent hose if not its blocked inside no air no dry it need air to dry cloths heat only will not dry plenty of air heat quicker drying
Is it heating or not? Is this gas or electric? The first thing to check is your vent and clean the lint filter. Then you should check the heating element and the thermal fuses if it is not heating (assuming electric). If it is heating and you're not getting dry clothes then your venting must have issues. Good luck.
Check the air outlet and see it is not clogged with dirt/flint.
Clean the air filter mesh located at the air outlet of flint. This blocks the free flow of air and thus do not dry the clothes. Drying will take place when the air inside has free flow.
Before putting clothes in the dryer EVERYTIME this filter must be cleaned OR after every drying cycle.
You need to check the heater element and thermostats which are lolcated behhind a removeable panel at the rear of the dryer..
You will need a meter to do this. Remove one wire from each thermostat and with the meter on the ohms range, test for continuity,if the stats are o/k you will get full scale deflection on the meter., if no movement then stat faulty, you must replace both stats at the same time.
take note which stat goes where as it is important you get them the right way round.
If stats o/k then the heater element is probably faulty.Plz rate my solution.
PS, make sure all filters and vents are clean
Particularly the filter at the bottom left, remove it and wash it out under running water.
