Sounds like your bias thermostat is bad. It's the one that has the 4 prongs.

Check the area that the lint filter slides into . Usually there are a couple of screws. Take them out and remove that whole piece. Lint gets out and around that lint trap. The whole front panel can be filled with lint preventing the moist air from going up the hose. If your clothes do eventually get dry and even feel hot then that should let you know that the heating element is still good.

Dryer takes 3 cycles to dry clothes


Air flow blockage will shut the thermostat down early. You may need to clean out the lint filter holder with a vacuum cleaner or a bent coat hanger. Look inside the dryer vent hose. It probably has a load of lint dust in it. A thorough cleaning is in order.

Run the dryer for 2-5 minutes. Check to see if it has heat inside. If not, you have an internal problem.
If heat is generated, check your dryer lint trap. It must be clean before every dry cycle to dry properly and efficently. If the trap is clean and heat is generated, check the tubes behind the dryer for disposing of the lint.

Dryer takes too long to dry clothes. Heating element is working because clothes are hot but it takes almost 2 dry cycles to dry clothes.


It sounds like you're lacking air flow. I'm sure you're cleaning the lint trap / filter - but have you clean the VENT HOSE / PIPE?

The 4 in vent hose is supposed to be cleaned annually. If you have the flexible vinyl hose, replace it with either steel, aluminum or flexible aluminum tubing instead. Once you've removed the vinyl hose, it will collect a lot less dust and can be cleaned without worry of puncture.

Make sure there's no obstruction to the flap outside, too. Once cleaned the dryer operation should be restored to new again.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

Not drying as quickly, requires 2 cycles


look inside your lint trap to see if it is clogged. Also remove your vent hose to check for clogs there and at the outlet. make sure your hose isn't kinked.

6th cycle and clothes are still extremely wet.


Are you cleaning the lint filter after each load?

(Pull it out of the top of the dryer or inside the door and clean it )

Can you go outside and find the vent where the dryer exhausts air? when the dryer is running with clothes in it, is there air coming out? If not, It is plugged.

Whether you think it is pluggged or not,, go back inside and pull the dryer out from the wall carefully. If it is a stack job, get help!
Now the 6" diameter rippled tubing that connects from your dryer to the wall can be removed by loosening the clamp on the dryer with a screw dryer. I think you should carefully unplug the dryer before you start this!
Loosen the clamp and pull the hose off the back of the dryer. It may be full of lint and all sorts of interesting things which you need to clean out. Or you may find that it is not even connected. When you are satisfied that it is clean. place it back on the dryer (MAKE SURE it is not twisted) and tightened the clamp back on very well with the screwdriver. When you push the dryer back in place be careful not to push it in so far that you collapse this vent hose or twist it.

That's the dryer. NOW, when you remove the clothes from the washer do they feel still full of water? Is the washer spinning well and removing most of the water? If it is not this can cause your dryer to take forever to dry the clothes and it can also cause your dryer to overheat.


Whether you have a pile up of lint in your lint filter and hose or the washer is not spinning correctly, both are a huge fire hazard for the dryer, so TAKE CARE of this NOW. Please. and Good luck!
