We just moved into a new house and now the dryer isn't working. It worked fine in the old house-now it will not dry clothes. The back inside gets very hot and the back inside area & some coil is RED. What is wrong?

Bad airflow to outside. To prove this, remove the hose and dry a load with windows open back and front of house. If they dry fast, you have a blockage in the hose to the wall or in the connector through the wall. Can also get birds nests in there if the flaps are faulty or weak.
don't know if you fixed your dryer problem yet.if it worked fine at your old place and now you're having problems at the new house how did you vent the dryer outside?if you hooked your dryer onto a vent line that was there the line could be blocked with lint and popped either the thermal fuse or the high linit thermostat or it's just coincidence that you have a problem right after the move.if you still need help with this let me know and i'll be happy to help you,if you open the door and look around the opening you'll see a tag with the model number,if you send this i can look up your dryer to see what parts are in it.thanks
The first thought I have is about the gas supply. If you had natural gas at the old house and now have propane or visa versa you need to change the orifices in the dryer as gas flow is different. Also, if the gas line some how got a kink in it when the dryer was being installed that too would restrict the flow of gas.
Sounds like the drain hose for the washer is too far down in the stand pipe at the wall causing a siphon effect, try raising drain hose a little. The dryer sounds like the vent line from back of dryer too wall is pinched causing an air flow obstruction. Hope this helps.
hi there try drying a load without your house ducting.if its restricted at all this cause the heat to not leave the dryer a designed by manufacture and their for get hotter.can be other things but thats most common.ps should have good air flow leaving dryer when vent off.but because fine at house just moved from i think new house is the problem.God bless ,tom
The first thing to do is check the venting from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house including the venthood make sure it is clear. Blocked airflow can increase dry time decrease efficiency.
