    My dryer is working, there is some heat but the clothes are VERY slow to dry. We just moved in to our new home---it was working fine before we moved.

Shannon:
Assuming that the dryer is still getting hot, your problem is likely lint buildup in the exhaust vent.  Over time lint will build up in the vent pipes, eventually restricting the air flow so much that the dryer takes far longer to dry the close.  Not only is this annoying and wasteful of energy, it can also be a fire hazard.
The good news is that you can fix this yourself.  Lowes sells a dryer vent cleaner called the LintEater. I purchased this two weeks ago and used it and, wow, what a difference!  If you have a long exhaust pipe, there is an extension kit as well.  I used both and now my dryer is working like when we built our house 10 years ago.
The kit works best with a ShopVac to vacuum out the lint as the rotating brush dislodges it.
Otherwise, check your local yellow pages for someone to clean it for you.
Hope that helps!

Forgot to put the lint trap back into LG Ventless Dryer DLEC855W. Clothing might have gotten stuck inside. Dryer now making grinding noise and drum is moving slowly. Is it time to call a repairman?


The filter simply allows the dryer air to pass through and trap the lint so it will not collect in the exit tube or on the outer vent parts. If anything, the clothes inside the bin will just spin around and be there when you finish. The noise inside the dryer could be from something that was in the pant or shirt pocket and was floating around.

FGR231ASY GAS DRYER BURNS FLEESE MATERIAL CLOTHING WHY


Hello my name is George,
I was wondering if the dryer was just burning fleece or all of your clothes. Fleece is a very delicate material, and should be dried on low temp or delicate depending on your drier. Driers are thermally protected inside with various parts. If the drier is getting to hot one of these would have caused the drier to stop heating. If the drier is burning all the clothes and not just the fleece I would recommend having a technician come out and check it as this could be a hazard for you and your family.

Clothes wont dry but gets really hot


Hello, sounds like your cold water feed hose has got a kink in it. The machine needs cold water to condense the steam. Just pull out the machine and slowly slide back into place.
