Question about Dryers
Just bought this used. There is heat and it tumbles but it takes hours to dry a load?? The lint trap is clean and I just don't know what to do.
Help me if you can?
The vent or the blower sounds like on is blocked is there any air blowing out the back with to vent disconnected it should be very strong there if not then you will need to clean out the blower housing it is in the back left side but i will tell you those 110 dryers are slow to dry

You really need a volt / ohm meter to check for Continuity & Volts
Its well worth the investment... $15.00 bucks give or take a few
I would check to see if you have 220v to back of dryer where the cord mounts to dryer,
If dryer is getting only 1 leg 110 volts instead of the 220 will it not heat.
Check themostates & heater for Continuity... Most models, Now have a.. Hi-limit fuses that need to be checked for Continuity
