Question about Hotpoint NVL333EY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Long time to dry clothes

I have a Hot point dryer model NVL333EYOWW. It is taking about 2 hours to dry a load of clothes. I checked to make sure the vent hose was not plugged and the heating element gets red hot.

    I took out the drum and checked heating element. It all turns red. Once
    you start the dryer in turns few for a few seconds and then goes out it
    will come back on but just for a few more seconds. I removed the wires
    from the high limit thermostat and it turns red and stays red. I
    replaced the high limit thermostat and it still does the same thing.
    What else could the problem be??

The dryer has one of its rows of heaters open. Open up the dryer and check the coils behind the drum. read more

    If you have one of them bias thermostats with 4 wires on it then replace that it might be bad. also electrical breaker. If all is good then your timer is bad. Some of those timers can be fixed by taking them apart and filing down the points on the heating element contacts inside the timer. It will get a burr and half way work.

    the 2 small wires are suppose to heat the stat up to make it shut down the heat faster for kit and permapress. They get whack, it is pretty cheap, change it.

Clothes take.2 hours or more to dry


Check to make sure that the dryer vent is clean. Most of the time when the clothes take a long time to dry it is the vent. If the vent is clogged then it cannot circulate the air inside the dryer. Also check underneath the lint filter to make sure it is not clogged as well

NOt drying clothes like it should


Has air flow problem, check to make sure the vent going to the outside is not blocked. If it isnt, you should be able to take off back cover of dryer. Should be a duct that air goes through, take it apart and make sure there is no lint in bottom of it. I had the same problem and that fixed it.

Back & top of dryer get hot, clothes take long time to dry.


First thing to check for is blocked airflow. Check the dryer as well as the venting from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house good airflow is neccessary. You could remove the venting from the back of the dryer and run a load to see if that helps. Do not leave it off as it is exhausting lint and if a gas dryer spent fuel.

Dryer will not dry cloths


make sure that the dryer has the proper voltage going to it and if it does then check the heating element and the safety on the left top of the element housing

Dryer sometimes works other times doesn't


Check and make sure there is not lint build-up in the venting hose leading to outside. This will cause longer drying times and can be a fire hazard. Also, if you use the Aluminum venting hose instead of the white plastic it can cut up to 30 min. off your drying time. It is a lot safer then the white venting hose which can also be a fire hazard. Make sure all the lint is cleaned out from the inside of the dryer where the venting hose is connected. It could be a clog there. This sounds more like the problem since the clothes are actually drying but it could be a partially burnt out heating element. Good Luck.
