Unplug the dryer from the electrical outlet.
Slide the dryer out from the wall and disconnect the dryer vent from the
back of the dryer. Loosen the retaining screw on the clamp connecting
the vent to the dryer's exhaust port and slide the vent off of the port. Remove the hex nuts holding the dryer's rear panel in place and slide
the rear panel off to the side of the dryer. Locate the high-limit
thermostat on the heating element housing on the right side of the
dryer. The oval-shaped thermostat can be found a few inches from the
bottom of the heating element housing. Unplug the two thermostat wires by sliding them off of the thermostat's
contact posts. Slide the old thermostat out of the socket on the heating
please check your exhaust vent, where the dryer air comes out of the house, this particular pattern is very indicitive of a slow moving exhaust, you may need to clean the duct between the machine and exhaust as well
Remove back (many screws)
Clean lint from interior & Vent Chute
check for breakage & parts on dryer floor
check for burn damage (wires burned off or char)
if no burn or char:
could be the "Dryer Coil" itself broke or
a "Snap Disc" usually mounted on the coil housing.
Very Serious!!!! Replace only!!!! Do not ever bypass!!!!
Stay clear of dryer for test start
Be ready to shut it down fast in case of problems
Always replace back & vent chute
id screen is on top remove the 2 screws under screen lid remove back cover ..remove the 4 screws holding bottom portion of screen housing over blower pull out and clean ..if screen is in door remove bottom cover (clips top edge press down) remove lint screen remove 2 or 3 screws holding housing to blower
it is..remove bottom panel ..after unplugging from wall..remove lint screen next remove 3 screws holding the lint screen/blower housing in place ..clean out housing clean blower wheel with long brush or a long arm clean lint from base and on element housing on right side especially on top of the housing..that is the most important location if lint gets too thick on element housing ..fire hazard....ckd vent behind dryer and to outside if you find a large amount of lint .that is good indication of a restricted vent
I know you cleaned the lint filter so I won't even mention it:)
Is it possible that your vent hose runs along the floor (perhaps behind the dryer, or maybe even under a raised floor beneath your dryer - as mine used to) before going up and out to the outside vent? If so it could be that water has seeped in through the vent opening from outside and become trapped in the hose and is acting like a drain trap and blocking moist air from escaping which is causing the clothes not to dry.
This is what happened to mine once anyway. A cracked vent flap was all it took for the water to build up over time. Unfortunately mine ran under the floor and I had to actually tear up my floor in order to remove the water without having it flow all over my house. Fixed the drying problem though (and a new vent flap insured that it didn't happen again).
no about all the time this kind of problem is caused by some kind of vent restriction start by looking over th back of the drier with a flash light and see if the vent is mashed folded over on its self or too long you only need enough to hook to the connector to the floor then go to the out side with the drier running and check to see if the drier hood attached to the house is opening i some have a plastic screen attached to the hood to keep critters out make sure that's clear rule is must have a 4" opening from drier to out side hood cant hang down under house and come back up as dryer will fill it with water over a peorid of time now easy way to verify vent restiction is to disconect vent run 1 load and see if it dries in proper time about 60 min
