You need to replace the heating coil that is usually the problem when you get air and and the tumbler is moving but no drying you can also check the lint catcher and clear out your dryer outgoing vent remove the hose check the dryer vent where the vent hose is connected and the vent going outside the house before changing the heating coil .
Dear Barry, Try 2 things. One, be certain the clothes are very dry coming out of the washing machine. If the washer leaves the clothes wet ( like the belt might be slipping), it can take the dryer forever to finish drying the clothes. You can tell by hand-wringing them. You should not be able to get any water out of them by hand-wringing after they have spun dry in the washer. Two, try running a load with the vent hose unhooked off the back of the dryer. If this fixes the problem, you are having a "clogged vent" issue somehow. Be blessed.
check the electronically operated damper vent door located behind the plastic grille inside the refrige compartment in the upper left hand corner,its either a dead control,an evaporator control12 volt d.c. motor,or the motor/door shaft is broken and you need a repl
if your dryer feels hot inside and the drum tumbles then you have a blocked vent. check that the venting blows to the outside. do this test. unhook the vent behind the dryer, dry a load of clothing and if it dry on the first time then you know the house vent is clogged. cleaned or if you live in an appartment have maintenance clean.
if it is heating well, then you have a ventilation problem,make sure lint trap is clean if so disconnect dryer vent hose from dryer turn dryer back on put your hand where vent is make sure good hot air is comming out if so dry a load of clothes without vent tube connected,they should dry in a normal amount of time ,if so then your dryer hose is either bent too much or collasped,if hose looks good then it will be vent leadinding outside you can take a leaf blower and put in vent and blow it out,your dryer either vents on the side of the house or the roof turn dryer on put your hand on exterior vent make sure air is coming through
clean your vent that goes out side Thats what does that the hot air dosent go outside but comes back on the temperature control and shuts the heat off. Also if you put wet close it it the lint will be built up behind the fan. You have to lay the dryer down take the back off and fron the bottom on the left side is the vent foller the hoe to the left. there is four 5/16" screw hokling that tub on thake those screws out and raise that unit enough to get you hand to the fan blades and you will find two hands full of linte matted there.
clean that out dryer need good air flow be sure to pull youi vent out the top and clean before each dry.
are your clothes drying?when the dryer heats up the heat shuts off then the timer will move,when the heat starts the timer stops,no heat no timer movement.when did you last clean out the dryer?you need to clean out the vent line if it's a long run i use a leaf blower to clean it out,you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,you should do this once a year so you don't have a fire and your clothes will dry on time and you won't have any problems like this,try running it with the vent line off to see if this helps.you also could have a bad thermostat but you should clean it first anyway
First check the vent pipe going out of the house might be cloged the best way to clean it out you self is to try a leaf blower if has enough force now it is not heating is because it has blow the high-limt thermal on the tub the heating element is in at the top of the tube on the left side (this is in the back panel of the dryer ) use a ohms meter to check if it is open if it is it will need to be replaced the cloged vent will cause the long dry time and will end up blowing the high-limit on the tube good luck
try drying load with vent tube disconnected may get warm and dusty but if works ok recheck vent completely also be sure vent is not being flattened when dryer is pushed back to wall also remove lower panel(clips along top edge each corner about 3-4 inches in)remove blower housing 2-3 screws and clean housing
