Make dryer hotter


Rather than make it hotter, check other things.

The longer the vent line is, the longer it will take to dry.
Also, most vent lines have a flapper outside that closes off when not in use to prevent cold air and critters from coming in.
Check to make sure that it's operating (opening) properly.
Also, no sharp bends in the vent line coming from the dryer to the vent ducting in the wall.

Finally, if it's an electric dryer, you could try one of these:

To prevent lint from flying through the air, the inlet hose (from the dryer) go into water that is poured inside unit, trapping the lint that comes out the vent hose.

DO NOT USE WITH A GAS DRYER!

My dryer does not heat. Clothes do not dry.


Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose. If the vent doesn't make a difference, then check the blower wheel for excessive lint build up, check that there isn't anything stuck to the air intake baffle inside the drum, (i.e. the screen on the back wall of the dryer when looking into the drum). Check the lint filter chute for blockage. Check that the heating element isn't shorted to ground. Check the exhaust temperature of the dryer. A meat or pocket thermometer can be used for this. It should cycle approx between 120 degrees and 160 degrees ( without clothes ). Check that the drum seals are not worn out.

The heat is not hot enough to dry clothes half load


A dryer either heats or not heat . You have a vent blockage or vent hose kink . Pull the dryer out and remove the vent hose . Dry a load and see if it drys ok . If so , check the vent if it goes thru the wall to outside , or if goes up thru the ceiling , may have to get a cleaner ( line and brush ) at Home Depot .

Taking long time to dry the clothes


Due to a dryer either heats or no heat , I would suggest pulling the dryer out and removing the vent hose . Dry a load of clothes to see if they dry normally . If they do , this verifys that the vent hose is either kinked ( restricting air flow ) , or , if the vent runs UP inside the wall , there is a restriction between the inside vent hose to the outside vent . May have to go into the attic to clean .

Wed9200sq0 heats, tumbles but does not dry at any heat setting


You are correct. Pull the dryer out and disconnect your venting from the back of the dryer. Turn your dryer on and check to make sure your dryer is blowing air out of the dryer duct. If it is then leave your dryer out at least 2 ft from the wall and run a load of clothes through the dryer. If it dries your clothes normally then you have a venting restriction. Check to make sure your venting is clean, not kinked or smashed, make sure your outside vent is opening an doesn.t have something blocking it. Check your lint screen filter by running water through it. If water is not flowing through it, you have a build up of fabric softener on your screen, blocking air flow. Scrub your screen off and test again. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Not drying clothes, heat is on, lots of moisture in dryer


hi there,

This is a classic sign that you need to unclog or improve the dryer venting to the outside of the building.

One of the most important functions of a dryer is the elimination of moisture recovered during the heating of damp clothing. A typical 12-pound load of laundry can weight as much as 20-pounds when first removed from a washer. The extra 8-pounds is water. That moisture is held as humidity in the warm air produced by the dryer and is normally expelled to the outdoors through the dryer's vent. If this air can not be adequately removed, poor drying will result.

This moisture can also condense into pools of water in the dryer vent, eventually leaking out. Moisture accumulation inside the dryer ducting is often a sign of poor venting which should be looked into

good luck!!
thanks

Dryer seems to heat up but clothes not drying


Check to ensure that its rotating. Then check the outlet hose for restrictions. If there are not any restrictions in the hose, and if the dryer connects to a wall pipe check the wall pipe for an accumulation of lint. Heavy lint will saturate and allow reverse drafting of condensation once the core air temperature drops. There have been instances where the blower is not attached to the operator shaft of the motor. Your air is circulated by the blower pulling air from the barrel into and over normally two heating elements. If there are restriction in the air flow here a fire hazard could exist. Hope that helps. After checking provide more details.
