Check the following to address this issue.


1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

I have a gas GE dryer DPGT750GCWW ;- it only heats occasionally. Sometimes it will work all day, other times it will heat one load and won't heat up for the next load. The vent has been cleaned...


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

Heats but does not have high heat. Takes about 80 min. to dry a average load of clothes. Dryer will heat up but does not get hot enough


have you checked to be sure you venting is clear leading to the outside of you home. obstructed venting will form your dryer to shut the heat off prematurely with then result in long dry times.
if it is a gass dryer, the the gas valve coils could be goind bad but check the venting first.

Maytag Neptune W/D (Stacked) Drying Irregularly


Mj, 90% of the time long dry times are caused by a pinched or clogged vent. Other things that could be causing this are: cycling thermostat trips too soon, if your dryer is a gas model, weak gas valve coils, drive motor centrifugal switch not allowing voltage to the gas valve or heating element. Check the harness to the motor to make sure it is on tight. Catriver...post back.
