An easy way to check dryer function is to check the airflow on the outside of your home at the exhaust the vent. While the dryer is running, and hot, put your hand near the outlet. The air coming out should be hot and forceful. If not, there is most likely an obstruction, and the whole airway should be cleaned. Keeping the airway clean and clear can dry clothes faster and save you money.

Another possibility is the blower,(fan) which can become encrusted with lint, preventing it from moving air. This is much less likely, but still a possibility.

It takes about 3 hours for my clothes and towels to dry this is getting ridiculous, any ideas thanks


Hello there and welcome to fixya
This is a very common issue with most makes of dryers here is a few things that are the most common problems
Drying is too slow It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these.
Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it. To determine if the heating element is burned out, Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician. Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws. i will post a picture of the parts on the back so you can look at them too ok?

Clothes take.2 hours or more to dry


Check to make sure that the dryer vent is clean. Most of the time when the clothes take a long time to dry it is the vent. If the vent is clogged then it cannot circulate the air inside the dryer. Also check underneath the lint filter to make sure it is not clogged as well

I have a wdr1242 washer dryer the dryer seems to take forever to dry clothes sometimes 2 hours or more even for just half a dozen socks


If your dryer is still heating up; Check the dryer vent hose, also check down inside where the lint screen goes. If no lint is obstructing there, check the exterior dryer vent. Sometimes you have a screen to keep birds and rodents out of there, and may become clogged with lint. If no screen, check inside the flap, maybe someone moved in, or dryer lint is clogging up your exterior vent.

Dryer not heating like it was before. It does not dry in one cycle. It takes 2 60 minute cycles to dry clothes.


Hi,

If your
dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

Dryer takes about 2-3 hours to dry clothes


Try checking the lint and vent tube all the way to the flapper on the outside of the house if it is blocked it will not allow the heating element to stay on.

Clothes not heating up and remain wet


ok like i said before haiers can be tricky. if you where to remove the lid 2 screws in back pull forward and remove lid. you will see a silver peice i believe you will also see the fan. That metal peice should have 2 wires on it. that is your heating element. I am going by memory so dont quote me. but if you check with no power to the unit///unplug...check the 2 wires at that silver metal peice you should have continuity there. if not your element is bad. i belive it is located to the right of the unit directly under the lid. there is also a thermistate there as well I know those thermistates are not very good. and the last time i had a haier not drying was the thermistate.I think there might be 2 orange wires going to it. I hope this helps..

It takes a long time to dry a load of clothes


sounds as if you may have an issue with a blocked/clogged ventin, perhaps wher it leaves the home, a unit that is not able to expell the heat will tend to not dry the clothes properly, 2-3x to dry a good sign of venting issue

Dryer sometimes works other times doesn't


Check and make sure there is not lint build-up in the venting hose leading to outside. This will cause longer drying times and can be a fire hazard. Also, if you use the Aluminum venting hose instead of the white plastic it can cut up to 30 min. off your drying time. It is a lot safer then the white venting hose which can also be a fire hazard. Make sure all the lint is cleaned out from the inside of the dryer where the venting hose is connected. It could be a clog there. This sounds more like the problem since the clothes are actually drying but it could be a partially burnt out heating element. Good Luck.

Tumble dry is heating but takes forever to dry


check your air exhaust (including the lint filter) from the air duct connector (remove duct if necessary) on back of dryer to the exterior of the building. Somewhere, there must be air blockage.
