Question about Dryers
Our dryer has started drying clothes for 7+ hours at a time. I don't know that it would ever end the auto dry cycle (even though the clothes are dry)unless I stop it manually. It seems to be an intermittent problem ~every 3rd load of clothes. Please help! We have been wasting energy like crazy because it just dries and dries and dries.....
This is caused by the dryer vent being blocked and not allowing the moist air to be removed from the dryer. To confirm this. Dry a load of close in a timed dry setting. Set the time on a specific time and then start the dryer. Wait for about 5 min. See if the timer has moved. If it has then the problem is not the timer. It is the exhaust vent being plugged up somewhere. Moisture how the auto dry setting works. The dryer sences moisture and runs longer to dry your clothes. With the dryer exhaust vent blocked, wet moist air is comming back into the dryer and fooling the sensor into believing the close are not dry and runs for a very long time. It is not uncommon for this problem to cause a dryer to never shut off. Your dryer exhaust vent is plugged up with lint somewhere.
