Check the exhaust duct. It's best to have a short run and no obstructions. It's also possible that a heating element could have been damaged in the move.

Dryer takes 4-5 hours todry clothes dryer seems hot just not drying

HI, Check the following to address this issue further.

Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat. These thermostats are located in the dryer vent duct and sometimes mounted on the blower assembly as well.

My GE gas dryer is gets warm but the clothes take hours to dry

Hello there, this could be quite a few things.

The most likely cause is something as simple as a clogged lint trap. I will assume that you have checked this out, but just in case check it one more time and use a flashlight to see if you can spot any lint trapped down a the bottom, below where the lint trap sits.

Secondly, during the summer if you live anywhere where it's humid it will be much much harder for your dryer to do it's job. I was perplexed by this same problem when we moved out here to Minnesota. I thought my dryer was broken for sure, the clothes were warm, the dryer was warm, but the clothes took literally a full day to dry, many many cycles. Is there a chance that this is what you are experiencing?

Lastly, and the most complicated of the bunch, could be a shorted element. If that's the case you could replace it yourself if you are comfortable taking apart the dryer. If it's a newer GE dryer though it's probably still under warranty and they will take care of it for you. I would check with GE in regards to the warranty status. Their phone number is 1-800-626-2005

If none of these things work, please reply (if you can reply within the next 20 minutes or so it will assure that I am the one who continues with the question) and in your reply please include the actual model number of the dryer if you could.
