Permanent press cycle keeps shutting down and doesn't finish.


Hello. I don't know what make/model dryer you have but the problem could be with load size and type of clothing. The sensor bars are usually located on the front of the lint screen housing(you have to put your head in the dryer and look back to see them--they are 2 metal strips, approx 1/2" apart and at least several inches long). The damp/wet clothing keeps shorting across the strips, telling the main board to keep the dryer running. If there isn't enough of a load, the dryer may think that the clothes are dry prematurely and count down too quickly. The sensor bar technology *is not* an exact science--it works best on large loads with like clothing. For smaller loads, use time dry and adjust the temp setting accordingly. I hope I helped you.

My dryer is taking way to much time to dry a basic load


The problem is either a blocked lint filter or a restricted vent system if the dryer heats up normally or a faulty cycling thermostat if the dryer heats up erratically. Check and make sure the lint filter is clear. You may need to have a contractor have the vent system checked and cleaned as it is necessary to clean them at least once year or every six months if 4 to 5 loads are done everyday. Restricted vent system impedes the airflow and therefore the disposing of the steam it carries. This consequently results in the longer drying time.

Replace the cycling thermostat if the dryer is heating up erratically or does not heat up sufficiently.

Kenmore dryer 90 series, heats a little, but doesn't get hot and takes 3 to 4 1/2 hrs to dry a med. size load.


Check vent path from lint filter all the way to the exhaust vent to make sure it is clear. If the dryer has a wet/dry sensor it could be malfunctioning. Try a manual cycle to see if the problem occurs then.

My Whirlpool Clean Touch electric dryer is not drying clothes very well. It is not getting real hot, and it takes two cycles to get most things dry. Towels and jeans take part of a third to dry. I clean...


IF YOUR DRYER HEATS AT ALL, BUT WON'T DRY THE CLOTHES, 99 PERCENT OF THE TIME THERE IS A RESTRICTION IN THE AIR FLOW. PULL THE EXHAUST OFF OF THE BACK OF THE DRYER AND DRY ONE LOAD. IF IT DRIES O.K., THERE IS A RESTRICTION IN THE DUCT WORK.
CLEAN OUT THE LINT FROM THE DUCT WORK. IF THE DUCT WORK IS FLEXIBLE MATERIAL, REPLACE IT WITH RIGID 4 INCH METAL DUCT.
