Clothes take a long time to dry. Outside of Dryer gets very hot but it takes forever for clothes to dry. I cleared all the lint from the dryer in the front and took dryer out and cleaned back of dryer as well as vent. Still it takes so long for clothes to dry. Any ideas?
Thanks,
Greg

If there is no lint blocking the air outlet path, I would next check two things: First, is the dryer in a small, closed room? If there is not enough space for air to get in to the dryer, it won't have good airflow through the clothes. Second, for older dryers, the blower fan may be loose on its shaft or, if the blower has its own separate motor, the blower motor might be dead. In order to find the blower fan, you'll have to be able to open up the dryer. Once you find the fan, see if it turns easily without moving the motor shaft -- if so, you need to replace the fan. Also, be sure there isn't anything blocking the blades of the fan.

Takes to long to dry clothes


after checking and replacing the vent going outside still the air was not venting and inside my drier everything was wet although the air was hot. After removing the rear panel i saw the blower belt disconnected. it took me some time to get the belt on but everything is ok and the air is venting and clothes getting dried. Also note that the little pulley came off its positio too.

My dryer heats up but does not dry clothes. I check ventilation and lint trap, there is no buildup. what could cause it to take forever to dry clothes?


If the drum gets hot to a real degree it has to be a blockage between the drum to where the air exits the home.

They do make a brush designed to go into the area where the lint trap is and be long enough to come out the rear of the unit---A lot of places will come out and professionally clean from trap to vent outlet

A blockage can be dangerous as hundreds of fires happen each year from the lint catching fire in the dryer.

The tube to the outside may seem clear but if blockage anywhere from lint trap to it, that will cause this problem and present a possible fire hazard.

Its not unlike having your vac not pick things up very well...except there is rarely a fire with that.

Heating elements are lit up working normal, drum hot but not inside of drum. it takes forever to dry clothes. vent wide open no clogging inside. need help ?


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.
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.
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.

Dryer gets hot but takes along time to dry


Make sure the lint filter is clean. If it is make sure the hoses leading from the dryer to the outside are not clogged. It sounds like it is not getting prober airflow through the tub.

Dryer is taking forever to dry clothes.


you better not use the dryer again until you can clean the entire vent system-----not just the lint filter , but the back of the dryer and the complete exhaust duct all the way to the outside. It is probably plugged. Also check to make sure nothing is blocking the air intake. I know a co worker who had a house fire due to a blocked vent. After the vent is clear, make sure you can feel a good stream of air coming out at the outsde of the vent.

Dryer gets hot but wont dry clothes


Do you know if the dryer vent is free of obstructions?Check outside where the dryer vents outside ,and see if the air is weak or flowing freely.If it is not clogged the air should be pretty strong from the vent outside.If it has blockage it will definitly take longer to dry your clothes.
