There is a vent, the moisture has to go somewhere. I would find the model number and get the user or service manual.

Dryer taking to long to dry


Overloading
1. One of the simplest problems to remedy could simply be that you are putting too many items inside the machine during the drying cycle. Avoid overloading your dryer, as this might cause your dryer to work extra hard to dry your clothing, extending the length of the dry cycle.
Wrong Heat Setting
2. A common issue with clothes dryers could be the wrong heat setting. Most home dryers feature several settings, from low heat settings to high heat and permanent press. Be sure the setting you choose is right for your needs. Another setting to check is the load size of your dryer. If you are drying a large amount of clothes, be sure the setting for large loads on high heat is selected. Choosing the wrong heat setting or load size can cause your clothes and linens to take longer to dry.
Lint Trap
3. One of the simplest fixes for drying issues might just be that your lint trap is clogged. Each time you use your dryer, lint will form in the trap. If the lint trap and vents are full, this could block air going into your dryer and slow down if not completely stop the drying process. After you use your dryer, remove this lint trap and empty it fully. Even if the lint trap is full, your other dryer vents might be clogged as well.
Clogged Vents
4. If your clothes are in the dryer for a long amount of time, but still not drying, the reason for this could be a clogged vent. A sign that your vent is clogged is if your clothes are warm or hot to the touch after sitting in the dryer, but still damp. To unclog your dryer vent, you may need professional assistance. This is especially necessary if your dryer vent leading out of the house is particularly long.
Heat Source
5. If the dryer is not getting enough heat to dry your clothes,something could be wrong with the heating system. After the drying cycle, touch your clothes to see if they are warm. If not, this means that the heating mechanism is malfunctioning. It will need to be repaired or replaced by a professional.

Our LG dryer doesn't dry clothes very well. We usually have to run the dryer 2 or 3 times to dry our clothes. I've checked the lint filter, hose and vent. Everything is clear.


if you have checked vent all the way out to termination point and sure that it is clear and not obstructed with damp lint then i would say you possible have a bad thermostat on the heater... this regulates how often and how long the dryer heating element runs and stays off.it has a open temperature and a shut down temperature... i would suggest replacement of that first... it is located on the heating element of unit... it is a round disk shape like bi-metal with 2 wires attached to it...
good luck to you....

My GE dryer takes 3-4 times as long as I expect it to to dry my clothes. I've read that it should take about 45 minutes to dry a load but after the first cycle the clothes are still damp. It usually takes...


You have checked a lot already ... thanks for the comlete story. Often the questions here hurt for detail.

Are your clothes getting hot?

Two reasons for not getting dry ...

No heat

No air.

You need warm air (heat and air) going through your drier to achieve dryness.

Sounds like you have no heat. Are you properly setup on the control panel (you selected heat)? You have physically inspected the entire exhaust sustem including the outside vent, hose and lint trap - absolutely clear ...

check the heat my friend

My dryer takes long time to dry the clothes. It


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.

NOTE***(This unit is equipped with a dryness control board. if all points above check out ok, replace this board).

Dryer heats up but clothes not getting dry after several cycles


Hi, First thing you want to check is the 4" vent that goes to the outside. Make sure that it is clear of lint and that it is no pinched or kinked at all. Is this electric or gas dryer and what model is it?

This machine has selfcondensing system. The condense water is beeing pumped out with the cooling water. The watertap MUST be open during drying. It also may be caused of overloading. The most W/D combos is just able to dry just the half of a full load in one time.
