Question about Dryers
Check your vent and the vent hose. At least once our dryer wouldn't dry anything when the cover flap on the vent was dislodged and couldn't swivel open. Also check if the dryer is getting warm. If the thermostat isn't working (any dryer) or the burner has failed, you could see this problem.
I hope this helps.

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.

is it getting hot ? if not then its either the heating elements or thermostat. both available on espares. Most likely to be thermostats. If its heating then give the condensor a good clean. hope this helps.

SOURCE: MCG8000AWW takes too long to dry
The font panel must be removed. This may be done by removing the control console (open upper cabinet doors to find screws behind the console). The screws along the top of the lower front panel are easily accessible. Disconnect the two interlock switches, remove the grounding clip attached to the bulkhead & lift the panel off the two lower clips. Inside the panel is a housing that leads to the exhaust blower. It will be packed with lint that may be hardened like papier mache. Just clean out the mess & reverse the process to replace the parts.

Check the following to address this issue--
Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.
Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.
3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.
