Question about Hotpoint NBXR463EBWW Electric Dryer
We have a condensing dryer and it heats up the clothes but never dries them what could be the problem?
Since the clothes ARE getting hot, it's not the tripped breaker(s) mentioned in Solution #2, because these would cut off power to the heating element(s).
Since it's a Condensing dryer, it can't be an obstructed exhaust hose, either (as there is no dryer exhaust).
Remove the lint filter(s). Holding it over a sink, see if water flows through it. The waxes in "dryer sheets" clog lint filters and, even though invisible to the eye, can totally obstruct the air flow and stop a dryer from drying. Wash it with soap and water.
Question: Does your dryer have a small drain hose leading out the back and going down a drain? If it's clogged, the dryer can't remove any more moisture. If there's no drain, then you have an internal "catch tank" to collect the water evaporated out of the clothes. It's supposed to be emptied after every load. Empty it.
If that's not the problem, I suspect your condenser is not working (removing moisture from the hot stream of air blowing through the wet clothes. This could be because: (1) It's clogged - Take out the boxy thing (technically called a heat exchanger) made of thin aluminum "fins" or tubes, and wash it off in the sink. or (2) The little fan that cools the condenser isn't running. In this case you'll need to call a technician. Good luck

If it's a condensing dryer, then it won't have a vent or exhaust hose, right?

You either have a tripped breaker (reset even if they don't looked tripped), a defective thermostat or heating element, or if the dryer is getting warm but just not hot enough, you have either a pinched off or clogged exhaust. If the exhaust hose is pinched off or clogged it causes what is called a dryer short cycling which means it will never get up to temperature and will cycle on and off. If it's not getting hot at all start with the breakers.
