Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

this is an airflow problem. make sure you are using a rigid metal duct behind the machine and not a flexible one. clean out the exhaust duct behind the dryer and in the wall all the way to the  outside. any residue of lint inside these ducts will increase drying time dramatically. basically clean everywhere the air flows.

SOURCE: Back & top of dryer get hot, clothes take long time to dry.

First thing to check for is blocked airflow. Check the dryer as well as the venting from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house good airflow is neccessary. You could remove the venting from the back of the dryer and run a load to see if that helps. Do not leave it off as it is exhausting lint and if a gas dryer spent fuel.

You should check to make sure you don't have a kinked or obstructed exaust line . The exaust is what allows the air from the clothes to escape as well as moisture and heat and is very important for efficient drying.

SOURCE: dryer is very hot on the right side

It is normal for a dryer to get hot at certain spots.. That means that the heat is passing through close to that area..
However - if it seem too hot - check the vent hose in back and be sure it is not squished or kinked.. Also check the outside vent when it is on to be sure the aire is flowing out properly.. If not - there could be a clog in the exaust..

I suspect your exhaust is clogged. Check it thoroughly! This could be a fire hazard. Check the lint filter, the entire length of the hose and the flap on the outside vent. If your hose is plastic, please have it replaced with a new aluminum exhaust.

check the drain filter is clear / pumping efficiency good. possible blockage in side chamber on righthand side. fan motor assy on top of chamber may be faulty. a condensing water valve could be faulty its the dual cold valve that the cold hose connects to without it you just get a steam and hot clothes.

The dryer heats up all right, but the clothes just don't get very dry


Air flow. you need air flow out of the vent to out side of house. Blocked venting will cause hot clothes but still wet.

Dryer gets hot but wont dry clothes


Do you know if the dryer vent is free of obstructions?Check outside where the dryer vents outside ,and see if the air is weak or flowing freely.If it is not clogged the air should be pretty strong from the vent outside.If it has blockage it will definitly take longer to dry your clothes.

Splendide 2100 no longer dries clothes


We had the same problem with our splendide 2100 top loader. If you remove the top cover, you will find 2 circular like black discs (the size of a dime) on the right hand side about 6 inches from the front. You need to push those down (with a very small blunt object) to reset them. Please make sure that you unplug your washer/dryer before you attempt this. Good luck.

Dryer stays hot hours after using it


The heater has failed and/or is shorting to the case. Remove the rear panel. The heater is on the right side, attached to the heater housing with two screws.
