Takes several cycles to dry


You may have a clogged air vent, check that the air vent hose is not smashed, if it is not smashed, have your dryer vent cleaned professionally, all the way from where the dryer connects to the wall to where the vent leaves the home,
Recheck the dryer operation, dryer vents should be cleaned every other year for optimum performance

There is not much hot air in dryer so it takes a long time to dry one load


restriction in the vent tube or dryer itself: first remove vent tube run the dryer if it drys correctly vent tube, if not then take dryer apart and clean the lint from below lint screen to vent tube connection. Good Luck Tim

Dryer not drying clothes properly


Replace the vent tubing, sounds like something is stuck or it is crushed somewhere. So replace it for about 5 dollars and see if that works. It should since you disconnect the hose and it drys right away

Gas Dryer - takes to long to dry


Friend,
huuum At your service!

Sometimes this can happen when the vent line is clogged.


1. Check if the lint filter is full and needs to be cleaned.
Try this first.If the vent line is kinked or blocked
2. Then check if the outside screen covering the exhaust vent if this is even half blocked
with lint there will be no heat! This screen is to keep small animals out!
Try checking this and if it is clogged or the spring loaded door is stuck closed.
Try to clean the lint out of the corners of the flap door,
and or remove the screen permanently!
NO ANIMALS LIKE TO GET BURNT,IT'S HOT IN THAT TUBE!
Take the vent line off the rear of the dryer and try if it works. If it does you know it's the vent line and not the dryer that's the problem the dryer.





You will be fine

Friend,

Sometimes this can happen when the vent line is clogged.

1. If the dryer is gas and old, the pilot could be out or if it is newer it could have a defective or worn out a igniter!

2. The lint filter is full and needs to be cleaned.Try this first
3. The outside screen covering the exhaust vent is even half blocked with lint there will be no heat! This screen is to keep small animals out! Try checking this second! if it is clogged or the spring loaded door is stuck closed try to clean the lint out of the corners of the flap door, and or remove the screen permanently! I DID AND NO ANIMALS LIKE TO GET BURNT,IT'S HOT IN THAT TUBE!
