Always on high heat and shuts off after 20 minutes

Check the complete venting system inside the dryer and to the vent outside. Be sure and check for lint & god knows what around the blower wheel. Get everything 100% clean. Insert a thermometer into the vent coming out of the dryer with the vent hose off. Start the dryer on high heat & see if it will go to not over 180% and start going lower like 130% or so if it drops back it's ok . If it don't stop & go down cycle thermostat is most likely bad. The reason it won't start for an hour may be the motor gets too hot. You could put an ohm meter across the connection on the cycle therm and heat it with a small torch or something & see if it will show open after heating. Just a guess lots of things cause these problems. Clean that motor too. Lint may cause it too run hot.

Dropped something down lint trap, how do I gain access to get it out before it gets tangles in the exhaust fan?

next time send model number?the filter must be on top,unplug the dryer,if it's gas make sure it's on a flex gas line so you can pull the dryer away from the wall.unplug the dryer,remove the vent line,remove the back panel.on the left side you'll see a duct that the lint filter slides into,remove the two phillips screws on the top panel where you pull the filter out,then remove the four screws holding the duct on and remove whatever you dropped down there,while you have that open vac it out,if your vent line is a long run from the back of dryer to the outside vent blow it out with a leaf blower,do this once a year if it's gas and once every two years if it's electric,let me know how you make out

E harmony dryer has moisture in the screen and water on the floor

he vent not being hooked up right can be a big problem. The dryer needs to be able to freely exaust all that moist air, and obviously it's not going anywhere. to continue using it like that will eventually kill it - the moisture will keep building up inside until something fries. Something in the vent system may have been damaged during the move, but normally it's pretty hard to damage them.

At this point, before anything else, I think you should not touch anything on the dryer, and run it EMPTY for a cycle or two - this might help dry out your keypad. After that, pull the lint screen out, pull any vent hose out of the back, and reach in as far as you can, checking for lint. You can also use a coat hanger to gently reach down into where the lint screen goes, and see if you pull anything up (unplug the dryer first!). Use a vacum to clean out both ends. If you're really adventurous, you can pull the front cover off the dryer, and take apart the vent system, or at least make sure it's intact - that will require more research, and much more work for you.

Once you are satisfied you have got all the lint out of it you can, run it with a load of clothes and no vent hose, and see how it works. After that, you can check the vent hose for lint also, and get the dryer properly vented. You can also stick the leg from an old pair of nylons on the vent outlet from the back of the dryer, but it should be cleaned VERY regularly.

Sorry for the long answer, but I hope this helps. Please rate if it does :)

The timer to dry clothes has been getting longer and longer

You need to make sure the lint catch area and the whole venting system is cleaned out. It sounds as if the lint is building up and causing a blockage, making drying time longer and longer. Especially if the dryer is doing this on Sensor dry and Time dry settings. There are many different products to use, but the LINTEATER by Gardus is fanatstic, you can usually get it at any hardware/home improvement store. Depending on how long your venting system is it also has an extension kit available.
The lint catch area beneath the screen is a pain to get into, you can buy an attachment for your vac, a thin flexible one is best. There are many online and in stores. But the best way to really clean the lint catch area is removing the lower front panel of the dryer. A service manual would show you how. But if you haven't checked & cleaned or had a company clean the venting system in awhile I wouldn't use the dryer until doing so. It could be very dangerous if there is a blockage. VERY DANGEROUS.
If all your venting and lint catch area is clear and there still is a problem, it could be the moisture sensor or temp sensors in the dryer. If you're not familiar with checking these things w/ a service manual yourself, a service call would be best.
Also, make sure whatever you are using to connect the dryer vent to the wall/roof venting system is a good quality connection with as few loops, turns possible. Make it as short and straight as you can w/ a better quality material.
Good luck, and please check that venting system ASAP ; )

When the clothes are drying you can smell something burning and the clothes smell burt when they are done. Coleman

You may have a venting issue. Check your lint filter and venting system. Excess lint builds up and goes onto the element and burns off. This can be dangerous and a fire hazard. Clean your vents, even open up the dryer and vaccum it out too.

Dryer won't dry

Sounds like a ventilation issue. Remove the dryer vent tube and take a leaf blower to it and try to blow it out as best as you can. Also check outside to see if something is blocking the vent. Birds and mice love to build nests in that nice warm vent tube. The ole leaf blower will remove these nice little woodland creatures with force, yet its totally humane, and wont hurt them a bit. If this doesnt work, you may have to run to your local building supply center or hardware store and get one of those inexpensive brushes that you can use to clean out your lint areas. A good test to see if you have good airflow is to remove your lint filter (if its a top filter), turn on the unit, and drop a small piece of lint down the tunnel. If it zooms right down, then its good. If it just kinda hangs around, its not that good. If you have a way to check the entire length of the vent tube, look to be sure that there is no dips or kinks. Also, remember that the shortest and straightest vent tube, is the best vent tube. Let me know how it turns out, or if you need further information. Good Luck!!!! Jim
