Dryer heats up and tumbles but doesn't dry

This caused by one of two possible things. Either you have poor air flow, or a clogged vent preventing air from flowing freely and therefor making the dryer short cycle, which in turn will take you two or three times to dry yor clothes, or the heating element has gone bad, burnt in half and is making contact with the case to provide it just enough power to barely heat. The second thing is a very rare occurance. I would turn the dryer on, find out where the air vents out to, and with the dryer running, go to where it vents and check to see if there is a strong flow of air. 9 times out of 10 that is going to be your problem. Another way to check air flow is to just pull the vent off the back and let the dryer run and see if your clothes dry faster. If you do it that way and they still take a long time to dry, then you'll probably need to replace the heating element

Dryer runs but no heat. My husband is pretty smart with appliance fixes. Do you think that this thermal fuse solution would be easier enough for him to fix or should we get a repairman?

The thermal fuse is not going to be the problem...when the thermal fuse has gone out the dryer will not start so since it runs the thermal fuse is good. The number one thing that is wrong with a gas dryer when it doesn't heat is going to be a broken igniter,this tip i wrote explains what to check when a gas dryer doesn't heat

Will not dry in allowed time

you need top check and see if *** is heating up first.If it is check the back to see that the exhaust tube is connected and going outside where it should be. If there is no heat it could be many things. do you run it on the automatic cycle that stops when it is dry ;there is a sensor that tells it to stop and it may need a new sensor, It may need an element It may be at the breaker box if there is no heat it is running on 220 volt breaker which is 110v beside each other and if one of the 110 volt breakers has tripped then the dryer will run but not get hot, so check your breaker box before you call anyone to come and fix it.If this had helped please don't forget to click on the yes box on the way out, thank you and good luck!

KENMOORE DRYER HEAVY DUTY MODEL 70 SERIES MODEL# 96574800 *Dryer starts and runs for approx 5 min. It becomes very hot and turns off. Can anyone help with the issue? Thank you.

If your dryer is STILL heating, but running excessively hot, you may want to check the dryer interior cabinet and/or the entire run of the exhaust ducting from where it exits your dryer to the point where it leaves your home to ensure you have no kinks, clogs, or excessive bends. The following link explains many of the common problems that can cause poor drying efficiency, longer dry times and excessive heat:

Before assuming you have a problem with the appliance, check your installation to ensure you are providing the dryer with proper exhaust and air flow. This is the NUMBER ONE cause of poor drying efficiency. A dryer in a clogged state, or having improper air flow, will not dry efficiently and will cause the heating circuits to actually OVERHEAT. The Hi-Limit Thermostat and/or Thermal Cut-Out will trip once the internal dryer temperature exceeds the preset limit for which it is rated. Eventually, this can lead to component failures and is the source of many fire hazards. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Dryer isnt heating up what could the issue be and how should i go about fixing it

Things to check, if these are all ok you will need to find a service company to come out and take a look unless you are really handy and have a good multimeter to do some testing. If so I would be happy to walk through some things to check.

- If it is an electric dryer check the fuses and or circuit breaker, one fuse or one leg of the breaker could be tripped and the motor still run.

- If it is a gas dryer make sure no one has accidentally turned the gas valve off to the dryer.

- Check the venting ( this would apply if you are getting some heat but not drying or taking too long to dry)

- If all these fail and you want more detailed troubleshooting send me the model number and your comfort level working with electricity and gas.

Heats up but not drying!!

The Vent is CLOGGED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There is no other possible reason for the dryer taking a long time to dry other than vent restrictions or just poorly built duct.
Not only can it damage the dryer it can catch fire!!!
