Andeb, 90% of the time long dry times are caused by blocked vents. If you are sure that this is not the case there are a couple of things to check. First check the sensor; press the more time button and less time button 4 times until 88 shows in the display.(more time,less time, more time, less time). Open the door and you will hear a beep and a see a code. On the inside just below the vent screen is the moisture sensor. Moisten your finger and lay it across the sensor strips covering both. If you hear a beep, the sensor is good. Sometimes they build up with fabric softner and need to be sanded lightly. Another issue might be the burner coils. Remove the bottom panel and check to see that the burner is igniting and remaining lit. Sometimes these coils become week and will not sustain the flame. I will attach a diagram, look at number 13 and 14 on the picture. These are the coils. Catriver..post back.

Cleaning the lint trap of the dryer may is not enough in some cases. I suspect you may have a problem with the vent ducting that extends from the the exhaust of the dryer to where it exits your home. The majority of dryer heat realted problems are due to poor ventilation and clogged vents. I dryer left in this condition will overheat to the point of failure. Not to mention, this creates a fire hazard and a habitat for rodents.
A simple test to determine if you have a dryer ventilation problems is to remove the vent hose from the back of the dryer and attempt to dry a load WITHOUT the vent hose attached. The air exiting the back of the dryer should be warm and forceful. If the clothes dry normally, then you need to inspect your vent ducting from where it enters the wall, to where it exits the home.
If the air flow is weak and your clothes still take a long time to dry, then you need to inspect the INTERIOR ducting of the dryer. Namely, the air blower housing. I suspect you'll find your clothes will dry better with the vent hose removed. Since it dried normally BEFORE you moved, and now it doesn't, you need to take a serious look at where the vent exhausts to. If the ducting runs through and attic or crawl splace they typically development sags, kinks and can clog. The rule of thumb when it comes to ducting: the SHORTER and STRAIGHTER, the better. Every bend you put into a dryer vent creates resistance to air flow, makes the dryer blower fan work harder and creates choke points where lint can accumulate and clog. Perform this simple prelimnary check and let me know what you find. I hope you find this advice helpful.
PS Do not run your dryer for extended periods of time without the exhaust hose attached. This will add humidity to your home and potential mildew. One load should be enough to determine if you have a problem. Don't run it this way as a normal everyday routine.

Hi, First thing you want to check is the 4" vent that goes to the outside. Make sure that it is clear of lint and that it is no pinched or kinked at all. Is this electric or gas dryer and what model is it?
