Electric dryer taking longer to dry clothes

Must be past the filter-problems in the duct work and hoses. get one of the refrigerator cleaning brushes from the hardware store and a duct cleaning kit, or a rope and rag. clean out the dryer ducting, & hoses as good as you can and check the outside exhaust port. Sometimes these have trap doors that become stuck from old age, even though ductwork is relatively clean. problems can also exist after the filter but before the dryers exhaust port in the back try to clean that out as well.

Heating up but not drying clothes

Your vent could be clogged with lint and debris. First remove the lint filter and clean the visible lint. Then run it under warm water and use a soft brush to gently scrub to remove any chemicals from softeners that may be on the filter. While the filter is drying completely, use a dryer brush (available at most stores that carry appliance accessories) and clean out the vent as far as the brush will reach. Next go to where the vent exits your building, lift the flap and clean that area as well.
What happens is that lint builds up over time. The heat and moisture causes it to matt up and it can't be blown out by the mild wind force created by the dryer. The only way to get the matted material out is to clean with a brush and remove it.
I hope this helps you. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice.

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

My legacey washer is leaving lint on clothes

Of course you've probably already done this but if not, check the filter and clean it. Additionally, you might need to wash it to remove residue from dryer sheets and BE SURE TO DRY IT BEFORE PUTTING IT BACK IN THE DRYER. If the filter is clean and washed and you're still having lint, get a dryer brush and clean down in the area where the filter goes. Also go to the vent area outdoors and clean that with the dryer brush. That area can become clogged over time and prevent the dryer from effectively removing the lint. Furthermore, check the exhaust piping. If it is bent, gently move it a little to dislodge any lint that might have gotten stuck there over the years.

I washed, then dried a rug that instructs to "air dry." (Now I see the instructions for proper care...) I have A LOT of little rubbery pieces in the dryer and I have a fear of setting the dryer on fire...

even tho you've cleaned out the lint trap and the drum, small pieces of your rug have most likely passed by the filter, or thru the seam where the drum meets the front and rear panels. I would recommend pulling off the front cover, and vacuuming out the "innards" of your dryer. That way you can be confident that you're good to go. You can also remove the lint filter and with a vacuum edging tool **** out any visible "chunks" in the duct. Let me know if you need assistance opening up your dryer.

Bosch Nexxt 500 Plus Elect Dryer Error E01

Absolutely those dryer sheets are the root of all evil....I would also recommend a good vent brush to clean your dryer vent.
Follow these steps, it worked for me:
1. use a shop vacuum to clean out the dry vent or a vent brush.
2. Clean your lint filter with windex, hot water and and soft bristle brush.
If this doesnt work try running the until disconnected from the vent for a cycle to isolate the vent as your issue.

Whirlpool dryer wed5700sw

you need a dryer vent brush first,bought at home depot cheap,and clean the entire vent to the house,then clean where the vent hooks up to the machine,if your filter is where your door is pull out the filter and stick the brush in there and pull out lint,also use your vacume,remember you let some lint out when you let the hose blow out but theres a lot more there to clean,and also unplug your machine as you do this,if this helps please give me a fix ya vote
