there's lint stuck in the side slots where the filter slides down into the ducta dryer should be pulled apart and cleaned out at least once a year more so if it's gas,unplug it,remove the bottom panel,pull out the lint filter,remove the screws that hold the duct in place,take it out and clean it,vac out all the lint inside the cabinet,set the shop vac up to blow and blow all the lint from the back forwards and make sure you blow off the motor and anything else in there and vac it up,put it back together and go to the back,remove the vent line from the back of dryer,if it's a long run stick a leaf blower into the vent line and blow it outside,first go outside and make sure the duct is open,no cage or screen that will block the lint then blow it out.do this once a year and you'll have hardly any problems with the dryer and mostly you won't have a fire.next time send the model number so i can see what you have.
First the most obvious and you've most likely covered yourself look at the lint trap/if clogged clean thoroughly with vacuum cleaner pull out lint trap and **** up as far as deep as you can get some of the lint that you don't see and believe me there's a ton depending on your exhaust/vent type . Next go outside check the vent attached to the outside of home for clogs/lint buildup lastly here's a trick I've personally used SEVERAL TIMES on my old ge dryer if you have a LEAF BLOWER pull dryer out of the way and next go outside remove exhast vent usually 4 phippls screws going out next remove vent/trap outside go back inside and use the leaf blower to blow out all of the lint caught in the vent tube your be surprised how much was in there. HOPE this quick fix addresses your dryer issue if not its most likely the dryers thermostat they're fairly cheap online. Just trying to save you a buck friend. Have a good day Ryan in Minnesota
caused by a back up of debris ,, remove the vent tube, and clean it throughly , including the vent cap outside, check for damage to the flap inside of it, if it has one, then remove the back of your machine, and remove the vent tube that goes from the blower fan to the vent ( lint) trap, clean out all of that , and any build up of lint in the machine, ( unplug it first )
If your machine is running properly and you have heat as you say then you may have a clog in the main vent line from the dryer through your house.
Try running the dryer once with the vent hose disconnected. If it dries your know the clog is in the house's vent line. Unusual but it does happen if you have a lot of lint.
Check first at the immediate opening point in the wall there is often a 90 degree elbow where lint can trap.
The other place is the cover plate on the outside of your house. Some at are static and others have vents that open and close. Those too can trap lint and cause a problem.
If you know you have a clog in the house line somewhere but the opening and exit are not clogged then take a drain auger (same as used to clear a clogged toilet) and run it through. If you don't have one try your garden hose.
if the filter isn't damaged then this is normal,you should take off the bottom panel and use a shop vac to blow out all the lint inside the dryer especially the motorand blow it forward and vac it up so you don't have to pull the drum to clean it,then remove the lint filter and take off the duct that the filter slides into,now go outside and make sure nothing is blocking the flapper like an animal cage that comes with some of the outside vents,if it's clear go inside and remove the vent line,if it's a long run from the dryer to the outside blow it out with a leaf blower,you should do this once a year and your clothes will always dry on time and your motor and other parts will last longer,when the lint builds up the dryer runs hotter and longer and that's what damages the dryer
Yes this is rellatively normal as clothes are just not made the same way any more. You could turn down the drying temperature slightly and put in an anti static drying sheet but it won't make that much difference.
I think your vent has lint in the line between the wall and the outside of your house not allowing the moisture to get out
1 when the dryer is running go outside and observe the vent to see if hot air is coming out
2 Turn dryer off, disconnect electric from wall
3 pull dryer out from wall
4 take a nut driver or screw and remove the clamp that attaches the flex vent pipe to the wall
4 Also remove the flex pipe from the dryer
5 Inspect inside vent connection inside dryer for any trapped lint
6 inspect inside flex line for any lint
7 Look inside wall vent for lint you can also reach in with your hand to feel for lint
8 If you have a leaf blower or can borrow one(electric is best) from your neighbor put the snout of the blower into the vent going into the wall seal the area between the snout and the vent pipe at the wall ( i use duct tape you can use wash clothes rags etc
9 start blower and blow any lint in the line out through outside THIS WILL CLEAR THE LINT
10 Reattach the flex to the wall vent and dryer , plug in. run a load and you should be back in business
