Are you talking about the vents? If so, the most direct route is the best. Use the least number of elbows that you can and try placing the unit as close to the outside vent as possible.

Door latch won't work

Many dryers have different door latches. not sure what you have.
Check by the latch function and look for broken plastic catches.
Sometimes if you were rough on the door itself, the hinges bend a bit and now the 'Catch ' doesn't align properly

Takes too long to dry

Using the proper venting and making sure the vent pipe is the proper length is very important to the operation of the dryer.

It is recommended to use of solid metal vent pipe, 4" in diameter, for adequate operation.

Check for an obstruction in the ducting. Make sure the outside wall damper is operating easily. If flexible ducting is used, be sure that it is not kinked and is installed properly. It is recommended that you clean the duct work completely at least once a year.

  • Remove and clean the lint filter each time it is used. The filter can be washed with warm soapy water to remove fabric softener residue from the screen.

  • There may be too many items in the dryer. Only dry one washer load at a time. Do not combine washer loads to make one large dryer load.

    A dryer whose heating element is partially or completely burned out will definitely prolong a dryer's drying time. Open up your dryer's cabinet and locate its heating element. Test the element, and if it is no longer functioning as it should, you will have to replace it.

    It is less likely, but it is possible that your clothes are taking so long to dry because of a faulty thermostat. Open up you dryer and test each of your dryer's thermostats. If any are not functioning properly, they will have to be replaced.

    Thermal Limiter Tripped/FAQE7077KRO

    If your thermal fuse is blown, the one located on the heater can it's self (small one), it's best to check your complete home exhaust for proper functionality. Additionally the connecting hose from the dryer to the home pipe at the wall should be free of kinks when the dryer is returned to position, and be no longer than it takes to connect the unit to the wall. A vent test instrument or professional vent cleaning company is always recommended for proper vent diagnosis. If your outlet thermostat located on the outlet pipe after the blower housing inside the dryer is tripped, your temp thermistor located on the front of your blower housing may be suspect. One final thing to check would be if the heater assembly is shorted to ground, using a DMM and separately checking each heater leg to the heater body, with the unit unplugged from the wall, and both heater terminal connectors unplugged from the heater.

    My dryer does not heat up properly, model DPSB620EC4WW, I have replaced the heating coil but this did not correct the problem. Is there a repair manual that tells my how to check the error codes for this...

    There is usually a " mini manual " which contains the electrical diagram and a bit of other information located inside the back control panel area. Before you go any farther though, check your dryer's venting. With the dryer running, go outside and feel how much air is comming out the vent. The air flow needs to be strong for the dryer to work properly. The most common problem causing poor drying performance is bad venting. Make the vent as short and straight as possible, with rigid aluminum vent pipe and elbows. If you must use flexible vent materials, try to make it as short and straight as possible, preferablly using semi-rigid aluminum pipe (the kind that you can stretch out, bend, and it just holds it's shape) don't use the plastic stuff with the strand of wire in it if you can avoid it in any way. You may also have to clean the lint out of the vent pipe.

    Dryer works but doesn't get clothes dry. They're

    Sounds like inadequate air flow through the machine. In order for the any dryer to function air is forced through the machine and outside. If the discharge is blocked or obstructed in any way the moist air will not be removed, and the clothes will not dry.

    Disconnect dryer from wall and clean the wall outlet and and dryer discharge pipe.

    Also, if you are trying to force air higher than 6 feet up the wall from a basement you will need a booster fan on the piping.

    Dryer Heats - Drum Turns - Clothes Don't Dry - Dryer Seems To Over Heat

    Before ripping into the dryer, with the dryer running, check the vent outside. There should be a rather strong air flow. I'll bet you have little or maybe no air flow. Check behind the dryer to make sure you don't have squished flex duct. If you have flex pipe, try running the dryer for a few minutes with the dryer pulled out into the room to stretch the vent out, and check outside airflow again. Try to eliminate all or as much of the flex stuff as you can, replacing it with aluminum dryer vent pipe. (tape joints with foil duct tape) Clean out remaining dryer vent. (there are special brushes you can buy to clean out vents, but they really only work on ridgid pipe.)
