Sounds like out take, something blocking the vent, pinched line, birds nest, snow?

    Great, good airflow, so now there still could be an internal lint issue, but it may be your thermostat or high limit switch going, possibly the element. What kind of dryer is it? Model number?

My dryer dries clothes on the timed dry setting , but not on auto dry. could this be the heat sensor going ?


Find your sensor inside the drum and get some cotton balls and a bottle of rubbing alcohol. Dampen a cotton ball and rub it across the sensor bars in the dryer. If it comes back blue, keep rubbing with new cotton balls until they come back with no color. Do this especially if you use dryer sheets. Those sheets end up coating the sensor with a film and then the sensors will not detect the moisture. Hope this helps!

No lint on filter? Where is it all going? Checked exhaust vent bought a vacuum attachment and there is no lint. Twice and sometimes triple the drying time! Help!


Instructions
  1. Dryer Does Not Run
    • 1 Close the door firmly. The dryer will not operate if the door is not completely closed.
    • 2 Press the "Start" button firmly or push the knob in to start the dryer.
    • 3 Turn the dial past the "Off" position and away from "Wrinkle Prevent." The dryer will not start in the "Off" or "Wrinkle Prevent" position.
    Long Drying Times
    • 4 Remove the lint screen. Clean it and replace it.
    • 5 Check the temperature of the room. The dryer will not operate properly in temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit.
    • 6 Inspect the area around the dryer. It requires at least 1-inch clearance on the front and sides of the dryer. A 5-inch clearance is needed on the back of the dryer. Move the dryer, if needed.
    • 7 Separate large loads and do not use an air dry cycle.
    Lint, Stains and Wrinkles
    • 8 Clean the lint screen before drying each load of clothes to prevent lint buildup on clothing.
    • 9 Add fabric softener sheets before starting a drying cycle. If the sheets are added after the load has partially dried, they can leave stains on the clothing.
    • 10 Dry small loads and remove clothing as soon as the drying cycle completes to prevent wrinkling.
    Dryer is Noisy
    • 11 Check the inside of the dryer for loose change, buttons or other items. Empty the pockets on clothing before drying.
    • 12 Separate items that are knotted together and restart the load. Knotted or balled up clothing will bounce and make the dryer vibrate.
    • 13 Level the dryer. Turn the leveling legs on the front of the dryer clockwise or counter-clockwise until the dryer is level. Turning the legs clockwise will lower the dryer. Turning the legs counter-clockwise will raise the dryer.

Clothes roll into a ball on matag dryer


As you insert the clothing into the dryer make sure you open up the larger pieces fully so they do not ball up. Frequently people put large bed sheets in before opening them up and everything gets rolled inside them. If your load is too small, that might happen, also!

I just got this HE dryer and the cloths aren't dry when the buzzer goes off. And the permanent press clothes are wrinkled... HELP! Plus it took almost 3 hours to dry sheets


It could have a faulty thermostat which shuts down to fast in drying mode, be sure and check that the vent is clear and not obstructed at all, thats the only way moisture has to leave the machine and dry the clothes

My king-sized sheets (only thing in load) are getting tangled in a ball in the dryer and not getting dry.


This is pretty common with lighter fabrics and is easily remedied. Put several new tennis balls in with the sheets to keep them from balling up. There are commercial products that do the same thing, but tennis balls are much less expensive.

Sheets wind together in a damp ball


I have a different model Bosch dryer, but I have the same problem.

I've found that the flat sheets dry okay if you have them in with other things (like pillowcases and t-shirts). I learned long ago though that you can't put those things in with deep fitted sheets; the little stuff winds up caught in the corners in damp wrinkly wads.

So I dry the fitted sheet separately, and throw in a couple of clean tennis balls. They're noisy, but harmless, and they keep the sheet from balling up.
