Depending on how damp they are, it could be normal or you could have a plugged dryer vent. I say that because on these dryers, the software in the control is programed to leave cloths a little damp in the sensor dry. This is for energy efficiency and less shrinking on clothing. If they are coming out to damp and you need to run them through two cycles to dry them, then the vent is plugged, either in the dryer or the house, and needs cleaned out. When the vent is plugged, the moisture isn't getting out, and the cloths will not dry.

How do replace heating element in dryer


Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Volt meter
* Clean cloths
* Waste bin
* Replacement fuse (optional)

1. Secure the power cord in the Frigidaire dryer as well as the power outlet if the dryer does not start. Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker if necessary.
2. Check the fuse if there is power but no heat, as dryers need two fuses in order to operate properly. Replace the fuse if necessary. Select heated cycles if items are wet and cold after drying.
3. Open the dryer door and slide out the lint screen if the dryer seems to be taking a long time to operate. Clean off the lint and return the lint screen to the unit. Use a volt meter to check the power outlet for proper electricity, which should be 240 volts or more. Clean the exhaust hood outside the home and straighten the exhaust vent if bent.
4. Keep the load size medium and distribute pieces evenly inside the drum if items are wrinkled or damp. Increase drying time or temperature as necessary.
5. Check pockets for hard objects before putting pieces in the dryer, as items can create scratches or chips inside the drum and cause a clinking noise during use.
6. Contact Frigidaire for assistance if the problem continues.

Whirlpool duet dryer - when using the settings that automatically sense if the clothing is dry the dryer is saying the clothes are dry but the clothing is still damp


Easy fix: Look inside the drum below where the filter goes in. You will see two metal strips. They sense the wetness. Now get this: the dryer sheets rub against them and a thin wax buildup on them prevents the controls from properly determining wetness. The control has no clue the clothes are still damp and thinks everything is kosher; so it advances to the end. Solution. Clean the stuff off of the sensors so that they can sense the true wetness once again.

I have a Whirlpool Gas Dryer LGR6646BI-12 the clothes feel warm but not hot and they are still damp


The Dryness Level allows adjustment of how damp or dry the clothes are at the end of the cycle.
  1. Make sure the correct Cycle has been selected for the type of fabric being dried.
  2. If the correct cycle is selected and the clothes are still coming out too damp, use the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button to increase the Dryness level.

  1. If the highest Dryness Level setting was selected and the clothes are still damp, the Customer Focused Drying Mode settings that are built into the machine can be adjusted.
Dryers come from the factory set to Drying Mode 1 (default). Drying Modes 2 and 3, include additional drying time.
Note: This change will affect ALL Auto Dry cycles.
  1. Machine MUST be in Standby mode before beginning. (Standby mode = Plugged in, Power off)

  1. To select drying modes, momentarily press the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button (Whirlpool) again. The dryer will beep, and the display will flash and show the next drying mode number.
  1. With the door open and the display flashing the desired drying mode number, press the Start button to save the drying mode and exit diagnostics.
  1. Press the Pause/Cancel key at any time to cancel changes and exit from this mode.
Hope this works............

Dryer wont dry, clothes are just as damp as they were at the beginning


Is the dryer heating? If not check heat system for part failure. If it is heating but taking too long to dry check for plugged exhaust. Best way to check exhaust is to disconnect exhaust from back of dryer and dry a load.

I have a Bravos clothes dryer and when the cycle is finished, it is very damp, wet and the clothes are not dry. What can I do?


This dryer automatically starts in the "sensor dry" mode. DO NOT use the "sensor dry" mode - use the timed cycle where you manually set the time. The sensor is in the back of the drum, and it frequently misreads the wetness of the clothes, especially if there is a t-shirt or something light in the back and towels or something heavy in the front (near the door). If you are still under warranty, you can have the sensor replaced (or purchase one), but it only helps slightly.

Drying timer on auto dry


I called LG...they said to unplug the dryer for 5 min. to reset the timer ...this solved the problem.
They also said not to use dryer sheets during the sensor dry cycle as the coating on the dryer sheets causes the sensor to malfunction as it can't read the humidity level in the dryer.
