Question about Dryers

Delic ate cycle taking too long to dry

Electric dryer can generally dry a load of towels or sheets in a 70 min cycle using the high heat or med heat. However, when I dry a load of kids clothes on the delicate cycle, it takes a least 3-5 cycles of 70 min to dry. What can I do to fix the problem?

This is normal because the delicate cycle is a low heat cycle.

LG Dryer takes too long to dry clothes


Sure the outside vent is not clogged up? If so it will overheat and turn it self off and do a poor job of drying the clothes.

Also check and make sure that all of the heating elements are working properly.

Why isn't My Kenmore Heavy Duty 70 Series Soft Heat Extra Capacity Electric Dryer drying clothes on any one cycle?


One possibility: Air flow! Make sure that the lint trap is cleaned before each cycle. You likely need to thoroughly clean out the vent piping out the back of the machine- a buildup of lint in here can also restrict airflow.

Takes three cycles to dry towels, displays 45 min. turns off within 30 min. still not dry


2 possible reasons, either the towels have not been spun at a high enough speed and are too wet, or the dryer is not getting hot enough because it is not switched to a high enough heat setting or there is a partial element or thermostat or humidity sensor failure. You should spin your towels as fast as you can, 1000 MINIMUM but 1400 or more is better. Did it ever work? Is it a new drier? Is it getting hot? 45 mins is a short time anyway to dry a full load of towels.

Sheets and bedding get balled up in dryer and don't get dry.


I have Design a new solution it is the Dwadder.
Dwadder made from HDPE plastic. The Dwadder is the first ever Dryer Device that does dry your sheets and blankets faster! The Dwadder keeps your sheets and blankets from wadding up in the dryer. This will save you Time and Money when drying. Dwadder can cut your drying time up to 30 mins or more. Two sheets or blankets can be strapped to the Dwadder at a time to keep from wadding up in the dryer.
One of the most time-consuming uses of a dryer is drying blankets and sheets. The reason it takes so long is the blanket or sheet can be twisted into a tight wad or ball during the drying cycle. Once this happens the dryer is incapable of drying the center of the wadded blanket or sheet. The solution today is to take the blanket or sheet out of the dryer halfway through the drying cycle and unwad the bundle of sheets or blankets. Then place the blanket or sheet back into the dryer to restart the dryer cycle over and over again until the blanket or sheet is dried. If you forget to unwad the blanket or sheet when you get ready to make the bed, the blanket and or the sheet will be wet.In order to fix this problem, the Dwadder is strapped to the sheet or blanket using a silicone cord before it is placed in the dryer. Once the dryer is started the blanket or sheet will wrap around the Dwadder allowing a space to be in the center of the blanket or sheet. With the space that is created by the Dwadder the center of your blanket and sheet will dry faster and will not roll into a tight ball or cylinder shape. This will help save time drying your sheets and blankets. The device will also prevent wadding of your sheets and blankets so you don't have to unwad your blankets and sheets half way between the drying cycles.
How to Use the Dwadder
Simply pull half of your blanket or sheet out of the washer. Then pull the silicone cord to slide the blanket or sheet between the silicone cord and the Dwadder. Slide the Dwadder to the center of the sheet or blanket then put your blanket or sheet in the dryer with the Dwadder attach to your blanket or sheet. You can use both silicone cords for two small blankets or sheets just don't place 2 blankets or sheet on top of each other or it will take longer to dry.

Dle2532 lg dryer, cooling light is always on


I'll take a stab that you use dryer softener sheets. These will deposit a coating on the two metal sensor bars (about 4 inches long, very near the lint filter inside the drum) which prevents the sensor from "seeing" that the clothes are still wet, so the dryer jumps to the cool down portion of the cycle. Clean the metal bars off and it should work again. (note: the bars are not in the cycle if you choose time dry instead of using the automatic cycles)

My roper REX3514 Dryer will only dry on the time cycle.


If you use a lot of dryer sheets, it will build up an oily residue on the sensor strips causing a "false" reading. Light sandpaper and alchohol over the strips should clean them well. Another possibility, is if you have a mixed load, ie..towels, socks, jeans , if a sock or something light keeps hitting the strips, the dryer thinks the whole load is dry (it doesn't know there are different thing in there) Try keeping loads similar when using auto dry.
