GE Dryer DBSR453Eb2WW takes twice as long to dry clothes


A clogged or partially clogged vent will reduce the air flow through the dryer and greatly increase the drying time. I assume you checked the drying time again after you cleaned the vents. Have you also checked that the lint trap is clean? Make sure no lint has found it's way around the lint trap and has jammed the intake.

I would be very suspicious of the 240 v breaker double breaker feeding the dyrer; maybe the dryer is only running on 120 vac instead of the full 240vac. The motor would be getting full power, but the heating element would only be getting half power.

Dryer takes too long to dry clothes. Heating element is working because clothes are hot but it takes almost 2 dry cycles to dry clothes.


It sounds like you're lacking air flow. I'm sure you're cleaning the lint trap / filter - but have you clean the VENT HOSE / PIPE?

The 4 in vent hose is supposed to be cleaned annually. If you have the flexible vinyl hose, replace it with either steel, aluminum or flexible aluminum tubing instead. Once you've removed the vinyl hose, it will collect a lot less dust and can be cleaned without worry of puncture.

A typical dryer vent brush.

Make sure there's no obstruction to the flap outside, too. Once cleaned the dryer operation should be restored to new again.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

Taking 2 to 3 hours to dry a load of clothes...checked dryer vent from dryer to outside and it is not clogged.. what can the problem be?


Are the clothes hot when you take them out? If not, then maybe your heating element is broken. Easy to replace that, just pick one up from a parts store.

Our dryer started to take a long time to dry clothes but the heating element was working. We opened it up to check for lint and so on, and it turned out that the drum had slipped slightly out of location and the back of the dryer was partially obstructing the duct. That was probably what was making the dryer squeak, too. We reseated the drum easily in a few seconds and now it dries well again.

Neptune glass front takes 4 hours to dry clothes.


make sure the vent system is clean. any restrictions can cause the safety switches to activate and turn off heaters. When it cools, the switch resets and starts heating. Unit will continue to cycle the heat off and on. Make sure all elements are working.
Start there.

Dryer won't heat up to dry the clothes the heating element works


Check the following to address this issue--


Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

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.

There are 2 thermal fuses located on side of heater box, part # 279769. These come as a kit. One of the fuses if blown the unit will not heat at all, the other is a cycling t-stat. The other thing to check would be your venting in the wall. If its not clear in the wall, it will take extra time to dry clothing.
