Dryers do what they are designed to do, Dry things. In the process everything inside the drying cylinder makes dust and airborne particulates called Lint. The Biggest bane for dryers is Lint accumulation. Clean the Lint filter screen. If it detaches from the dryer housing with screws remove them. Clean out what you see if you have a wet vacuum with a small hose carefully push this down into the opening and vacuum it ou. Another thing pull your dryer out from the wall disconnect the power and remove the vent hose. Vacuum inside the opening in the back of the dryer. You would be surprised how much lint accummulates here. Lastly check your vent hose for lint accumulation or blockage. If you find it blocked, disconnect the hose from the vent going outside and clean it all out with a vacuum . Put it all back together and run a load of clothes if you dont see a marked improvement in circulation and drying time, then either the blower fan is n't working properly or you have a burned out thermostat. If you have heat flowing turn it up to max heat and see how hot it really gets if on opening the dryer you feel extreme heat then it is either working right or the thermostat is not shutting off at the high limit. the Thermostat is a piece of Bimetallic metal that is extremely sensitive to certain temperatures. When they reach the preset heat limit they shut off allowing the heating elements not to burn out. A good investment is to keep dryer maintenance at regular intervals. They sell dryer cleaning brushes and Vacuum hose attachments for getting into the deep crevasses and nether regions of your dryer. Good luck and happy drying

Take to much time to dry


Dear Ms.B.
I'd start by unfastening the vent hose off the back of the dryer and running the hot air into the room or with a large pipe out a window, to see if the vent pipe is plugged to the outside. If that does not speed up drying, check to make sure the washer is not at fault, by the wetness of the clothes. A loose belt can let the clothes be too wet from the washer. Then, I'd take the whole dryer apart and clean the inside. In the past 3 months, I have had 3 different dryers that were full of lint, over a two shoe-boxes of lint inside each one. The reason for the buildup is poor design, and each dryer was many years old.
Be blessed.

Why do We have to dry clothes several times to get them dry?


It might just be time do do a little cleanup. No matter how good you are at cleaning the filter, lint is still gonna build in the dryer. themobilian_993.jpg

My dryer DLE 2514W does not dry the clothes enought, we have to put it on for a second time to get them all dry. Seems to be alot of heat but doesnt dry the clothes


disconnect vent hose and run a load of clothes, if they are dry then the vent hose is restricted/clogged. if for some reason it is doing the same then take dryer apart and clean from lint screen back, I am almost certain that it is the vent tube.

Dryer is taking too long to dry


Dryer needs to be cleaned. Unplug, take off back and vacuum all lint out of dryer, also take off vent and vacuum inside of vent area. Then clean dryer vent from inside of house to where it exits. Make sure all lint removed. Lint holds moisture and causes dryer not to be able to release steam caused by heating wet clothes, thus clothes don't dry.

Dryer is spinning and warming up but it's not drying


Exhaust full of lint. Vacuum into dryer exhaust as far as you can, Then clean out complete vent from dryer to outside. Any lint will catch moisture and clothes will not dry.

Whirlpool dryer....heats


You could have heating element going bad, or a plugged dryer vent. Start with dryer vent, make sure all lint is out of it, all the way through it, even if it goes to the roof, or out the wall. Also vacuum out back of dryer and inside vent tube. This should help with problem. If not then replace heating element its getting weak.

THE DRYER TAKES TWO TO THREE HOURS TO DRY ONE LOAD


It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these.

Vent
Heating element
Internal ductwork
Cycling thermostat
Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance.

Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it.

Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.

Dryer turns, heats up but won't dry


check the outside of your house to see how strong the blowing is if it's weak then it's in the vent tube

Dryer takes forever


You have a clog somewhere in the venting. Anywhere between the lint screen and the outside of the house. Use a vaccum with a crevice tool to reach behind the lint screen. Also check the flaps on the outside of the house. You can also access the machine end of the vent pipe by removing the two Phillips screws on the angled panel just below the dryer door. If you feel you need to take apart the machine further to clean behind the lint screen, write back. It's very tricky, and will take some time, but I can walk you through it.
Good luck!
