Dryer gets hot, outside vent seems to have plenty of air coming out. Lint screens all clean. But the unit takes two cycles to dry and in the past it always dried in one cycle. Whats wrong??


Is this happening on automatic dry cycle or timed drying?
It sounds like your moisture sensor is "confused" and shutting down heat prematurely.This part can be replaced.

Also double check your exhaust vent for blockages or standing water or sagging or open pipe

Also , your heater element may be shutting on or off prematurely. Could be a high limit thermostat problem. Or there is obstuction causing over heat

hope this helps

Dryer will not shut off in any 'auto' mode. Time display ticks down, then jumps up again and keeps running. Dryer does works properly when 'timed dry' is selected. Checked and cleaned exhaust vent. ...


How long is the vent from the dryer to the outside? Dryer vents that are longer than 8 feet with more than (2) 90 degree turns--can affect drying performance.
Setting the DRY LEVEL selector to *Very Dry* will solve most dry-ability issues. In homes with abnormally long vents--even the longer run time in the *Very Dry* setting is usually not sufficient to dry laundry loads.
Reducing the length of the vent or starting a second cycle becomes necessary to fully dry the clothing.
If a second cycle was started---only the amount of time that is needed to dry laundry will be used before dropping to 6 minutes and then the cycle will end with dry laundry.

UN-ending Auto dry cycle


This is caused by the dryer vent being blocked and not allowing the moist air to be removed from the dryer. To confirm this. Dry a load of close in a timed dry setting. Set the time on a specific time and then start the dryer. Wait for about 5 min. See if the timer has moved. If it has then the problem is not the timer. It is the exhaust vent being plugged up somewhere. Moisture how the auto dry setting works. The dryer sences moisture and runs longer to dry your clothes. With the dryer exhaust vent blocked, wet moist air is comming back into the dryer and fooling the sensor into believing the close are not dry and runs for a very long time. It is not uncommon for this problem to cause a dryer to never shut off. Your dryer exhaust vent is plugged up with lint somewhere.

Kenmore drier model 110.96591440 will not cut off in either drying cycle


DO YOU MEAN IT WON'T SHUT OFF? DOES THE TIMER ADVANCE? IF IT STAYS IN THE SAME PLACE, AND YOU ARE ON AN "AUTO DRY" CYCLE, THE TIMER WON'T ADVANCE IF THERE IS A RESTRICTION IN THE EXHAUST.
DISCONNECT THE DRYER EXHAUST FROM THE BACK OF THE DRYER AND TRY ONE LOAD OF LAUNDRY. IF IT WORKS O.K., THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH YOUR DRYER DUCT WORK. HAVE IT CLEANED OUT AND TRY IT AGAIN.

Dryer shuts down in the middle of the cycle before the timer goes off. if you try to restart it will not. wait 15 minutes or so and it starts right back up and finishes drying the load.


Probably the motor is getting too hot and the thermal overload switch is shutting it down.Usually means bad motor or dirty motor. You'll have to take it apart to see. Model # and Brand would help.

My hotpoint vtd00 dryer seems to have stopped drying


Have you cleaned the exhaust ducting? The duct that runs from inside to outside. Try that first. Sounds like your exhaust line is blocked. Also with the filter out get a flash light and look down the venting if alot of lint vaccum out. NOTE: Unplug the unit, wheather gas or electric.....and if it is a gas shut off the gas to the dryer before moving just in case something gets loose while moving. Hope this helps.
