Question about General Electric GTDP490EDWS GE 7.0 Cu. Ft. DuraDrum Electric Dryer with HE Sensor Dry
We clear the lint filter after every load, but it takes hours to dry our clothes...even when we put 1/2 loads into the dryer. The back of the dryer is heating. The connection vent is clear, so we can't figure out the problem. The dryer is only 1 1/2 years old. We have been having issues for a year.

You may have a clogged air vent, check that the air vent hose is not smashed, if it is not smashed, have your dryer vent cleaned professionally, all the way from where the dryer connects to the wall to where the vent leaves the home,
Recheck the dryer operation, dryer vents should be cleaned every other year for optimum performance

The most common problem is your exhaust line is blocked. Turn on the dryer and go outside to feel how much air is coming out the vent. Most likely it is blocked. If so you'll need to disconnect the exhaust duct and vacuum it out.
