Everythings dries fine in my Kenmore dryer except for towels. It takes 2+ hours to dry a load of towels. What could be the issue?


Make sure that the moist warm air from the dryer can escape from the room where the dryer is located and that the Lint filter is clean and, if fitted, the air control vent is fully open.

The dryer needs to get clean fresh air with little or no moisture tro work properly: opening window/door to let the excessive moist air escape will help.

Hope it helps!

Have a whirlpool cabrio gas dryer. It takes several hours to dry one load of clothes. The clothes seem to stay damp towels may take all day... what could be the problem


Have you opened the door while its running to see if its warm inside (heater working) If its getting warm and still not drying the clothes properly you likley have a air circulation concern. With the unit running check the exhaust vent outside from dryer it should have a good flow of warm air, if not you have a restriction sowher between the unit and outside. Heat alone will take forever to dry clothing,you need good air circulation to remove the moisture from the clothes otherwise all you will end up with is warm moist clothing.This generaly happens over a long period of time and then all of a sudden you realize the dryer is not working like it use to..Hope this helps you with your concern.....

Frigidaire Front Load Dryer Model # leq2152eeo Problem: it is not drying the clothes. The dryer heats up and everything else is working, except it takes 4 cycles to dry something that should have dried...


while the dryer is running.go to the outside of the house and check the air flow,there should be a large amount air being blown out if there is not check the vent and ducting for lint build up and make sure the hose is not kinked.
when there is restricted air flow all the warm moist air will stay in side the dryer causing the clothes to take a long time to dry. i hope this helps you with your dryer

Dryer does heat but takes 3 hours to dry a medium size load of clothes


Sounds like the moist air is not being properly vented. Your dryer has a fan that pulls in dry air and expells the moist air. This is vented thru your dryer hose and should be vented to the outside of your home. Sometimes the hose will get either a blockage or a partial blockage that will make it either not dry your clothes or take longer than it should. I have seen hoses that have a sag collect water much the way your trap will under a sink. You can either throughly clean the hose, and check for a blockage in the hose or the dryer itself, or you may, as a test, disconnect the hose temporarily and vent your dryer into an old pair of panty hose. When you turn the dryer on, the panty hose should inflate. Also make sure you keep your lint trap clean...EVERY LOAD.

Will not dry clothes and trickels water down the front!


Check to see that the lint filter and exhaust duct are clear all the way to the outlet. If the moist hot air is not being exhausted the clothes will not dry. The water you saw may be from condensation of the moist air that is not being vented out.

Takes multiple cycles to dry normal load of clothes


Have the vent system from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house cleaned. If the dryer can't push air out, it can't bring air in, and the clothes won't dry. Another condition you might be seeing is moist lint developing around the gasket on the inside of the door. That's a sure sign the airstream is restricted somewhere.

Not dring


The air is not getting out of the dryer. Your vent hose is crimped or cloged or the flapper outside the house is stuck.. Air is not getting out of the dryer thru the vent for what ever reason.

Our maytag dryer is not drying our clothes in a timelymanner. The dryer gets hot but the clothes take several hours to dry.I heard there is a part that takes to moisture out ,if that is true could that be...


I have had a similar problem. Clothes would be hot inside the dryer after a full cycle but still wet/moist. The cover for the vent to the outside had been smashed down against the vent. Steam was still coming out but air flow was being impeded. Also, be sure to check that the flexible tube to the vent is not blocked by dust, spiderwebs,etc. Hope this helps!
