Check your vent. It may be kinked or clogged. Also check the trap door on the outside is not stuck. Your not getting enough air flow. But if you opened the dryer in the first minutes of drying you will see some sweating and it is normal. good luck.

Model 41798702891 Kenmore stacked washer/dryer is collecting lint inside the door and putting lint onto the clothes.


I am not much of an expert with dryers but i'll give it a stab. Should there be a filter that catches the lint so that it does not go all over the clothes? Have you got the manual. If not, see if you can find the manual online and see if there is anything mentioned about a lint filter.

The dryer does not pass 6 min mark and does not shut off. How would I test a humidity sensor? Thank you for help.


A dryer moisture sensor can stop working without notice, until you notice your clothes being over dried or still wet at the end of the cycle. It is a good practice to test the dryer moisture sensor periodically. There are two types of moisture-detecting sensors for dryers. Once you understand how they work you will see how to test each one.
1. Sensor BarThese sensors contain digits that protrude outwardly. They work on an electrical current and the moisture from the clothing.
The first step to test is to place completely dry clothes in the dryer and turn on the dryer; it should run for a few moments and then shut down right away.
Secondly, place damp clothes into the dryer, turn on the dryer and watch the timer. As the clothes begin to dry the timer will move and shut off.
2. ThermostatThe timer is regulated by the thermostat. The thermostat rests in a closed position. To test this type of moisture sensor, place damp clothes in the dryer. Watch the timer; as the clothes begin to dry, the thermostat should open and the timer will move forward ,eventually shutting off.

My 1993 Maytag Clothes Dryer heats up, turns but does not dry the clothes unless I place an absorbent towel in with the items. It sweats water from the bottom of the dryer. What is going on?


To dry clothes, we need 2 things:
1-heat to evaporate the water from the clothing
2- adequate air flow to exhaust the moist air, thereby drying them.

Your heat seems to work.....if you stop the dryer mid-cycle, the clothes should be hot.

It sounds to me like you have a lack of air flow through the dryer. If you can get to the exhaust vent grill outside, then see if you get a large volume of air coming out of it. If not, then look for the louvers stuck closed on your outside grill, or any kind of blockage in your ductwork.

Perhaps undo the vent at the back of the dryer TEMPORARILY

My dryer doesn't completely dry my clothes. Usually I have to run almost 2 cycles to get my clothes dry.


check your vents,, inside the house and outside,, check to make sure the vent hose is not kinked,, if all is good make sure the unit is blowing out air good, if so then you may have a thermostat or heating element going out,,, i have seen alot of vents on the outside get wet and clog up

The Hotpoint Dryer shows sweat on the inside door and takes longer to dry the clothes. Marilyn


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

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.

We have a Kenmore 400 Series dryer. It heats up but our clothes is not getting dry. We have to cycle it twice to get our clothes dry on high heat. Any idea why it would take 2 cycles to dry?

This was the out vent of my dryer... If it gets this bad... open up the dryer housing and clean inside too. Also make sure the intake is free of lint.

I got alot of sweat on my ipod and it wont turn on or do anything what can i do?


Thi is a typical problem for whihc many devices are not protected. Since the sweat contains a lot of salt, build up of the traces within the device can end up with shorting connections,looping circuits in the device rresulting in erratic behaviour. First off if you can carefully open the device do so with caution not to damage.delicate parts, then use a dry cloth to sponge off any watery fluids. if this is not seen/ visible use a hair dryer to warm up wihtout over heating for about 5-10 minutes. repeat this three times allowoing time in between, use a cleaner only if your careful not to damage the plastics specially petrol. Wipe dry before you reassemble. Hope this trick work out well. Good luck.

Bosch axxis wtl 5410 dryer takes too long to dry.


You should have a cycling thermostat. this is most likely bad or your dryer vent may be clogged. Something is cutting the heat off before it gets hot enough. Both these cause this problem.

Maytag performa dryer takes a long time to dry clothes on auto


What you have is a obstructed dryer vent. If you remove the vent hose from the unit you will see moisture inside it. This is why your unit isn't drying. If the heater has no air flow the overload is tripped. Check your vent for any blockage most of the problem is at the outside end of your vent. there's a flap or chicken wire you may find the obstruction there. Or you can use a leaf blower connect it to the inside vent, cover the outside vent with pantyhose. ( so you don't get lint allover your yard ) and you can clear your like that way. Good luck hope this helps
