HI, i recommend making sure that this dryer has a clear exhaust duct and hose. place your hand on the outside exhaust hose and check for a good flow. if the flow is low, you will have some sort of clog in the exhaust system and you will need to clear this blockage. if the exhaust duct and hose is clear of debris, you will the need to check the lint screen for debris as well. make sure you Clean this regularly after every cycle.

I also recommend checking the dryness sensor as well.

Dying to slow i have a estate eed4300 it take 2 or more time to dry


Hello,

If your dryer is heating yet it takes a long time to dry the clothing,the problem is usally a airflow problem. Check for lint build up in the blower.lint filter housing and or a blocked venting tube.

Slow dryer


If your dryer IS still heating, but your clothes still won't dry, you may want to check the dryer interior cabinet and/or the entire exhaust ducting from where it exits your dryer to the point where it leaves your home to ensure you have no kinks or clogs. The following link explains many of the common problems that can cause poor drying efficiency and longer dry times:

Before assuming you have a problem with the appliance, check your installation to ensure you are providing the dryer with proper exhaust and air flow. A dryer in a clogged state or having improper air flow will not dry efficiently and will cause the heating circuits to overheat. Eventually, this can lead to component failures and is the source of many fire hazards. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Slow to dry


Hi!!

Have you cleaned the filter and the exhaust duct??

Lint plugs therm up, the heat sensor shuts off heating element thinking it is hot enough. Result: Clothes not getting dry.

Unplug duct and clean it, also clean the exahust passage of dryer. (where duct hooks to dryer)

Kenmore 120V portable dryer only gets lukewarm


Sometimes the venting in the dryer needs ton be cleaned out as it plugs up and the high limit thermostat makes it short cycle on the heat cycle.

My Maytag gas dryer is not heating correctly. It gets warm, but takes several cycles to dry even small loads.


If you have'nt done it yet, my first suggestion would be to have the vent on the dryer (inside the dryer all the way to the fan chamber) and the dryer vent pipe to the outside thoroughly cleaned.
That is leading cause for dryers not drying completely.
Also, has the dryer always been a bit slow to dry cloths? If so, try leaving a window open the next time and see if it makes a difference. Some houses are sealed so tight, the dryer can't get enough air. A typical dryer will use up to 200 cu/ft of air per minute when drying. If there is not sufficient air, the cloths take longer to dry.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

Dryer slow to dry


Take the vent off the back of the dryer and dry a load unvented too make sure you don't have an obstruction in the line too the outside. If still takes too long too dry you might have a bad operating thermostat located on the blower housing it is a 4 terminal thermostat.
