Question about Dryers
I have done all the recommended solutions for long dryer time, clean vent, check flow, had a service tech in to check thermistor- resistance OK, but the exhaust from the vent is no more than 125 degrees(manual says it should be 155 at max timed dry) Tech says the dryer is fine, however it still takes over two hours to dry a larger load. Dryer is 1 yr old and had this from the start. Wife is driving me crazy. It is propane & all is cycling fine.
Dryer is a Kenmore Elite Smartheat QuietPak 9 Frontload
Suspect lint accumulation around one of the control thermostats or a partially blocked airflow path. For some reason, the thermostats 'think' the dryer is up to heat when it's not and are turning off the burner prematurely.
Could also be defective thermostats, although these are usually either stuck open or stuck closed when they go bad. I guess they could lose their calibration and open prematurely, but I think it's more likely lint accumulation somewhere.
