Not getting any heat @ all in dryer.

Dryer just runs but no heat is generated to dry clothes. Clothes remain damp after running a full cycle on high heat setting.

Folks,
You aren't giving me much to work with to help you. If possible, can you provide the Brand and Model number of your dryers so that I can assist? I can't tell from your post if they are gas or electric and that would dictate the repair tactic for them.. Please provide those kinds of details.
Regards,
Rick

Dryer is set to run 40 mins when it shouts off at 0 on the dryer is has only run 20 mins according to my stove timer


Dryer has a moisture sensor that detects the clothes are dry so it shuts off earlier. If the clothes are still damp then the dryer vent may be plugged and causing the unit to run hot or not able to fully evacuate the air from the machine. Clean the vent and make sure it's completely free and try again. If it short cycles again and clothes still damp you may have a sensor controller issue.

Clothes coming out wrinkled after drying


Is the dryer heating? If so try using dryer sheets and allow a bit more on the timer, if the clothes are still damp..If the dryer is running properly I see no other way to solve this.

Whirlpool duet dryer


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.

Dryer turns on and rotates. However, does not dry clothes completely. Cycle signals wet,then damp,cool down and finally dry,but clothes are still wet. Sometimes the dryer works fine and completely dries...


This problem may be the result of a dirty lent filter which if clogged will short cycle the dryer and the clothes will still be damp when done. Also a dirty exhaust pipe (usally 4") will prevent the clothes from drying correctly. Make sure that the air is leaving the machine. To do this you have to go outside when the machine is running.

My dryer wont dry.


Check your vent hose. You may have a blockage or a dip in the line

Dryer is getting hot but clothes are not drying


You have a vent problem. Eliminate all (if possible) flex duct (replacing with ridged aluminum pipe and aluminum elbows). Clean lint out of remaining vent pipe. Make sure vent is not crushed or obstructed, especially behind the dryer. If possible, make sure outside vent termination is not a two inch opening. (you want a full 4 inches)

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


Most common cause of this is a clogged venting going to the outside to test this remove the vent from the back of the dryer and run a load if it drys ok them you know you have a venting issue and will need to be cleaned out if not plz repost and we can look deeper into it
