For the dryer to take to long to dry is usually a sign of the vent duct work being restricted with lint. Check the vent hose, outside vent door, and the internal duct for lint buildup.

My dryer starts and runs but puts out little heat. To dry a load of towels I must run 3 or 4 cycles


Vent 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. Internal ductwork 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 has heat but clothes are still wet we dryed a dog pillow that came open and the stuffing went all inside. we took the back off and the shoot for the lint trap but there was no more lint.


If your machine is running properly and you have heat as you say then you may have a clog in the main vent line from the dryer through your house.

Try running the dryer once with the vent hose disconnected. If it dries your know the clog is in the house's vent line. Unusual but it does happen if you have a lot of lint.

Check first at the immediate opening point in the wall there is often a 90 degree elbow where lint can trap.

The other place is the cover plate on the outside of your house. Some at are static and others have vents that open and close. Those too can trap lint and cause a problem.

If you know you have a clog in the house line somewhere but the opening and exit are not clogged then take a drain auger (same as used to clear a clogged toilet) and run it through. If you don't have one try your garden hose.

Good luck.

Please rate if this gives you some direction.

MY DRYER ISN'T HEATING UP. CAN IT BE LINT STUCK SOMEWHERE?


yes a lot of times the dryer vent gets clogged up and the unit cant breathe and the heat elements are cut off by a safety overheat switch or someone couldve pushed he dryer back too far and kinked the hose take the dryer vent off of the dyer and pull it away from the wall and dry a load of clothes if it starts drying u may have a clogged dryer vent or u had he dryer vent kinkedif that doesnt remedy the problem then more than likely u have one of ur overheat sensors gone out u have to take the wires off of them and check for continuity thru them they are usually on the back on the element housing and the blower housing and round take the wires off of them and check for continuity

My dyer heats and tumbles, but doesn't dry


I'd check first for clogged vent hose or clogged lint filter or clogged vent flap on wall (outside).

If that's not a problem, it may be a faulty thermostat. Heating element is probably okay if it heats some of the time.

More info, let me know.

DRYER TAKES LONGER TO DRY


you could have restricted airflow from the lint screen not being cleaned, a bad blower wheel, or a bad thermostat. take the vent hose off the back and check to see if the air flows out the dryer with good force, if so your vent is probably clogged or not open in the wall. the vent hose may also be picned off from puching the dryer back to far.

My kenmore Elite Dryer model he3 starts but there is no heat, what is up with that and what can I do to fix it since my warranty is over.


Most dryers stop heating due to a clogged vent or duct. Check your duct hose inside the house for lint/water clogs. You will have to remove it to do this. Then check the outside vent for lint clogs and make sure that its opening properly (louvered vents). If thats not the case, call up Sears and use your warranty.

Too long to dry my clothes


HI,

It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these.

Vent
Heating element
Internal ductwork
Cycling thermostat
Vent 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.

Heating element 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.

Internal ductwork 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, contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.

First make sure you have power to the unit through the plug. If power is present, then you most likely have an open Thermal Safety Fuse. The Thermal is a Safety feature that shuts off the power to the Heat Element in the event the Blower is not blowing or the Lint Vent becomes clogged not allowing air to flow over the Heat Element. NO air flow, Heat Element over heats, Thermal Safety Fuse opens, power shuts off. If the Thermal Safety Fuse is open find out why. Was the blower not working? Was the Lint Filter clogged? ( Lint Filter should be cleaned after each use to assure continued air flow.) Was Lint Vent Clogged? This is the Vent Hose that goes from the Dryer to the outside of your house. It should be checked for free air movement. The next thing-- Could be a defective Timer or Control Module.
Find where you lost power and WHY!!
