There may be a clog underneath the lint trap or the exhaust vent may be clogged, if either fails try changing temperature knob to a different setting.

The dryer is not get hot. It take 2or 3 times ti dry the clothes


You might want to take a flashlight and check the vent and duct from the outside in. Lint will build up in the duct and vent over time. When you turn on the dryer with wet clothes in it, the lint will get damp quickly and it will dry out quickly too which make the dryer cycle shorter but not long enough to dry the clothes. Clean the vent and duct regularly and that should take care of your problem. You can buy brushes for doing this and they are not costly.

The heat is there but it doesnt dry the clothes


You have one of 2 problems. Your clothes are getting put into the machine too wet because the washer isn't spinning them out all the way. Or you have a clogged vent causing the unit to take too long to dry properly because it can't remove the moisture properly. Check your vent outside to see how hard the dryer is blowing the air.

Takes to long to dry clothes


after checking and replacing the vent going outside still the air was not venting and inside my drier everything was wet although the air was hot. After removing the rear panel i saw the blower belt disconnected. it took me some time to get the belt on but everything is ok and the air is venting and clothes getting dried. Also note that the little pulley came off its positio too.

I have a 7 cycle ele dryer (roper) my dryer is heating up but won't dry my clothes and.very little heat coming out from vent I had a new heating element put on what can be wrong with my dryer please...


Hello,

When your dryer heats yet does not dry the clothes its usually always a poor air flow problem. What needs to checked is for lint build up in the blower housing,a chushed and or restricted vent from the rear of the dryer or anywhere to where it exits the house.

My dryer we've had for about two months won't dry clothes. it heats up, but they are still wet four cycles later


I was thinking you have a bad circuit breaker. This dryer runs on a 2 pole 30 amp 240 volt breaker. The motor runs on one side of the breaker on 120vac. The heater has to have 240 volts to work correct. When that breaker is on the way out it will take a new dryer 3 or four times as long to dry the clothes. themobilian_294.jpg
If you are cleaning the lint filter out and don't have a clogged vent pipe themobilian_295.jpgthen in my opinion you have a bad circuit breaker. Seen it.

Have you checked the vent from the dryer to outside. One indication of a restricted vent is taking too long to dry clothes. To check, remove vent tubing from back of dryer and dry a load.

Dryer will not dry clothes after 60 minutes in the dryer clothes still wet just like they had just come out of the washer.


The reason you are not getting the cloths dry after 60 minutes and are just as wet is airflow or rather the lack thereof.

First verify that you dryer is actually starting, (I know... you're thinking, duh!) but simple things first. Let the dryer run on high heat for about 2 minutes and open the door. See if there's actually heat coming out of the door. If there is, that's a good sign. Did the drum seem to be tumbling? if yes, this also is a good sign.

Next turn the dryer to fluff/no heat and turn it on. Go outside and check the dryer vent (if possible) and see if there is a reasonable amount of airflow coming out. Most likely it will be weak (since your cloths aren't drying.) Now that you have checked that, go inside, disconnect the dryer hose on the back of the dryer. Compare the airflow from the outside vent. If it is considerably stronger than outside, your ducting needs cleaned. If it is about the same and still weak, something is blocking airflow in your dryer.

Here's a decision point. If you feel you don't want to try to fix the dryer yourself, get someone qualified or take it to a qualified maintenance shot for the dryer. If you feel up to the task, FIRST unplug the dryer, then you'll have to disassemble the dryer (can't give you specifics without the model number) and find the clog and remove it. Once the clog is removed (very likely lots of lint and maybe even a sock or two) reassemble the dryer, hook the vent hose back up, plug it in, try to dry your cloths.

Hope that helps

NO HEAT WHEN CLOTHES ARE ADDED


Check to see if vent hose is not restricted. If it goes up inside wall, it could have lint clogging it. Most dryers regulate heat with air flow. Wet clothes can restrict flow even more if vent is clogged or pinched. Air flow is crucial to heat cycle. If the vent is resrticted, heat will rise quickly, but not cool down fast enough to allow heat thermostat to cool down and turn on heating element again. It may seem hot inside dryer but if no air flow it will increase dry time or not dry them at all before timer shuts off. If vent goes up inside wall, buy a small chimney brush and try cleaning out vent from attic if you can.
