Hi,
I don't know if your dryer is electric or gas... For either, one possibility is that the outlet venting is obstructed. You can check your outlet vent to see if you have good air flow. If not, check to see if your vent hose is pinched, or check to see if there is an obstruction.
If the flow is good and the dryer is electric, you may have a weak heating element that needs to be replaced.
Hope this helps... Good luck!

If clothes are hot then try dryer on timed dry. If timer does not move then timer is most likely bad . Replace. If timer moves on timed dry it is not getting hot enough to click the cycling thermostat.(If clothes are overly hot above 160 then the cycling therm. is stuck Replace.

Dryer is hot when opened, but takes 3 or 4 timed cycles to get clothes dry on very dry setting and timed setting


Check for a restriction in exhaust system,not just behind unit but all the way to outside vent,should feel warm decent airflow at outside vent.If not all you will end up with is warm moist clothes,You need good airflow to take away the moisture in the clothes not just heat.This issue can happen slowly over time and next thing you know its taking two or three times longer to dry even though when you open the door its hot inside.
Good luck

Dryer gets hot but takes along time to dry


Make sure the lint filter is clean. If it is make sure the hoses leading from the dryer to the outside are not clogged. It sounds like it is not getting prober airflow through the tub.

Your problem may be attributed to a clogged exhaust system (e.g.: clogged inside the dryer's vent, flexible vent behind dryer clogged and/or clogged inside wall, etc.).

You have a plugged or resrticted exhaust flow. Remove the dryer and clean out the vent hose from the dryer all the way out of the house.

Back & top of dryer get hot, clothes take long time to dry.


First thing to check for is blocked airflow. Check the dryer as well as the venting from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house good airflow is neccessary. You could remove the venting from the back of the dryer and run a load to see if that helps. Do not leave it off as it is exhausting lint and if a gas dryer spent fuel.

Dryer takes a long time to dry.


This sounds like the vent is plugged up. The dryer gets rid of moisture through the dryer vent and hose. When this gets plugged up it will take a long time to dry or the hi limit will shut it off. When the dryer vent or hose is partialy blocked it will take vary tong times to dry the clothes and will eventualy cause the dryer to stop drying all together.
