My Magic Chef dryer doesn't dry properly

My dryer gets hot, but it still seems to take 2-3 dry cycles to get the clothes dry. What is going on?

    It is tumbling and it heats, it just seems to take forever to dry the clothes. How do I check for a clogged vent?

  • Michael Willsher May 11, 2010

    is the unit tumbling? If it isn't, check the belt. If it is tumbling then you may have a bad thermostat or a clogged vent. Run it without the vent on for a cycle and if it dries then you need to replace the venting. If it still doesn't dry then you need to check the cycling thermostat

Remove the vent from the back of the machine, run it full of clothes from the washing machine and if it dries nicely, then you have a clogged vent that needs replacing.

The Dryer has hot air but the clothes are not getting dry?


Clogged Vent
If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.
Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:
The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees.
When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.)
The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.
This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But...if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.
Heating Element
Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace the heating element. You can check for an ohm reading but will need to refer to the service manual for proper reading. This sometimes on the tech sheet located somewhere on the dryer. Usually between 9-13 ohms.
Cycling thermostat
Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork . This thermostat usually has four wires going to it. Check the 2 terminals that are opposite each other and are the closer together of the 2. These 2 terminals should have continuity. If not replace the thermostat.

Dryer does not get warm enough to dry clothes within one dryting?


check your hi-limit and cycling thermostats located on the element case the one will have a red and yellow wire to it and the other will have 2 red wires to it and they will be connected in series as one of the red wires will be in between both thermostats

Magic chef dryer quit working


There is a thermal fuse inside the dryer usually located behind the back cover on the upper part of the combustion chamber. When this fuse "blows" it turns off power to the whole dryer. This keeps your house from burning to the grown, and you from dying. The fuse "blows" for a reason, most likely to is lint build-up in the dryer and/or dryer vent system. The good new it only cost a few dollars to get a new one. The bad news is you need to find out why it "blew", the dryer got to hot for a reason.

Magic Chef Gas Dryer # YG225LV


VT,

The dryer is clogged disconnect the exhaust hose(usually a 3-4 inch thin spring like tube) from the back of the dryer and clean out the entire thing disconnect it from the window (I imagine this is what you have it connected through?) and make sure all lint is removed and then reattach. Also make sure you don't have to much slack going from the machine to the window. Cut any access hose off. It should go the shortest possible path no big loops or sags! After this it should heat up like you just pulled it out of the box.
