No heat, only cold air


if it is still pluged in and running and you only get cold air check your vent hose it may be blocked by lint or you can put the vent off the back and see if you get hot air then if so the vent is cloged with lint if it is still not blowing hot air then you may have a thermostat open this takes a little more checking you have to take the back off the dryer to check the stats try the vent first white

My dryer does not heat. Clothes do not dry.


Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose. If the vent doesn't make a difference, then check the blower wheel for excessive lint build up, check that there isn't anything stuck to the air intake baffle inside the drum, (i.e. the screen on the back wall of the dryer when looking into the drum). Check the lint filter chute for blockage. Check that the heating element isn't shorted to ground. Check the exhaust temperature of the dryer. A meat or pocket thermometer can be used for this. It should cycle approx between 120 degrees and 160 degrees ( without clothes ). Check that the drum seals are not worn out.

MY DRYER GETS HOT ON TOP OF THE DRYER (KENMORE) COULD IT BE THE VENT?


start dryer, go outside and see if vent is blowing hot air. If not then vent is clogged with lint, esp if vent has a curve or elbow in it. unhook vent at dryer or os vent and run a vacumn hose in as far as you can. easy way to determine if vent is to unhook at dryer and see if dryer blows air, could be just inside at vent opening

Not drying clothes


if your dryer is heating but not drying check the flow of air coming from your vent outside if does not blow very hard you might have a clogg in the line but the best way to test it is to unhook vent from back of the dryer and dry a load but only do that if you have an electric dryer not gas your is just as important as the dryer itself

How long should it take to reach a hot temperature?


Try disconnecting the vent at the back of the dryer and run the dryer with the air blowing just into your laundry room for a few minutes. Air flow should be strong and you should feel discharge air heating. It still sounds to me as if the dryer has flex vent and maybe does not line up with the dryer outlet, so that when the dryer is pushed back into place the actual space left for the exhaust air to pass through is very small. If this is the case, there is a telescopic low profile aluminum vent available to solve the problem.

Not geting hot enough


The most common thing to cause this is a blocked vent. Start the dryer and go out to where the vent comes out of the house and see how hard it blows. If you feel little air out the vent, you will need to unhook the dryer from the vent and see how hard it blows there. If it is blowing good there you need to have the vent pipe cleaned. If dryer isn't blowing hard out the back, please reply back with the model number so I can give more detailed directions on checking the blower wheel and ducts.
