SOURCE: Cleaned vent hose, dryer still taking forever to dry clothes.

you have a family of squirrels living in the rest of the vent tube which is leading outside...check vent outside. I once had flying squirrels come into my house through the dryer vent! My dog had a kitten.

SOURCE: dryer takes more than one cycle to dry clothes

Did you clean the entire length of the vent ducting? Or, did you only clean the lint trap on the dryer and the exhaust vent outside? If you didn't clean the ducting as well, you may still have a clog somewhere causing your dryer to be "starved" for air. A dryer needs proper air flow to dry properly. One way to check is to turn the dryer on and go outside to the exhaust vent opening. Feel to see if you have sufficient air flow. If the air flow is weak, you have a clog. If not, you may have a high limit thermostat cutting off prematurely, not allowing the heating element to heat long enough. Check your ducting first and let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: Frigidaire electric dryer; model # FDEB34RGS1- gets TOO hot!

I could not find the model number you listed. I also would be very concerned about over heating until we can find and locate the problem. Look inside the door and compare number with the on listed here at Fixya. Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have an Amana Dryer, ned7200tw. It was taking forever to dry clothes, took twice through per load. We replaced the heating element 2 days ago, cleaned all the lint while it was apart, and it is still...


Did you check the trap door on the outside of the house where the vent goes outside. If the door is stuck or the end of the vent is blocked you will get excessive dry time like you are having. Also possibly a thermostat inside starting to go bad and sticking.

My Dryer not that old, takes all day to dry a small load.


Check the following areas thoroughly 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.

3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.

Dryer is taking several cycles to dry clothes.


Very common problem. You need to call a duct cleaning company and tell them to clean your dryer vent. Rule-of-thumb: dryer vents should be cleaned every couple of years to prevent them from being clogged with lint and causing lint fires. This is definitely your problem. Good luck :)

p.s. one way to verify a clogged vent is to go outside where the vent exits the house and feel the air-flow. should have adequate air-flow.

My dryer is taking too many times to dry my clothes!


hello tmivie,
When you say you took the dryer apart and cleaned out all the lint, did you also check the vent system all the way to the outside and at the end where the duct exits your house? If you are getting heat and limited or restrictive air flow, your drying time will be excessive.. There may be other problems such as the blower itself isn't functioning properly to move the air out.. Since your dryer is electric, you can detach the vent line from the dryed and turn it on.. feel the exhaust flow to make sure it is pretty robust then reattach the vent and check for about the same flow at the exit point of your duct system. Let me know if that solves your problem or not so we can look at other ideas..
Regards,
Rick

that is one thing I have learned, don't take anything apart that you dont need apart. Clean with shop vac-it will suck it out.
