Dryer lost heat


This may be a heating element issue.
If you want to do a few things before calling someone, you would want to start by making sure all of your dryer settings are set correctly. Some dryers have "air" settings or "delicates" settings. These settings are going to be very low heat so the clothes are not ruined.

Also make sure that the lint screen has been cleaned each and every time you have started a new load. If not, you can UNPLUG the dryer, pull the dryer out and with some simple tools, take the back off and vacuum what you can get to. If it's very dirty you'll want to call a professional. You'll need it cleaned and your problem diagnosed. If cleaning the lint screen is not something you have done on a regular basis, then please start. This could be a fire hazard if it is not cleaned regularly.

Another thing to check is your vent or vent hose. Depending on how your set up is, if your hose is crimped behind the dryer and the heat can't escape, the clothes will not be able to dry. This would only be something if you have some heat but clothes are not drying. Also, sometimes due to the age of the hose, previous use, not cleaning the lint screen, etc, the venting from the house to the outside could be clogged. Again, there will be some heat, but the clothes will seem to take forever to dry.

Good luck.

My ge dryer gets warm but have to dry things 2 or 3 times to get them dry


if you have a dryer with 2 heat setting i.e high and delicate?? it may only be working on the delicate cycle as the heater element may well be begining to fail and the high heat setting is to much for it.

The automatic delicate drying cycle does not dry


The delicate cycle is for damp, not wet delicate items. It is more warm air then hot and will not dry wet items forsay. If you have delicate items that need more drying try putting them inside a pillow case and tying the end closed long with a higher setting. Works great with stuffed toys too

Not heating properly, many cycles to dry loads


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.

Amana gas dryer fine on regular settiing, poor on delicate


It would be unusual but this could be a bad timer in the control panel. The only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance. If possible use the meter and the wiring diagram to check input/output voltages looking for discrepancies between the diagram and the actual meter readings.
