Re: vent

If it were electric I'd say it was ok, but for gas, the combustion products go out through the vent along with the humidity.

I have an older model gas dryer with the lent catcher located on top of the dryer. It spins and it gets hot but it is not drying properly. I have to run the dryer three times to completely dry my...

you might have a restriction in the exhaust system. check the entire exhaust vent tube/hose from the back of the dryer to the outside of the building for any restrictions. check the outside exhaust vent for any restrictions or obstructions. make shure the exhaust tube/hose are as short and straight as possible any sharp curves or bends can restrict air flow.

Dryer wont heat up

check the vent hose. It may be clogged with lint. best spot is to disconect the hose from the dryer that is usually where the clog is. Also check for spots the hose is pinched.
Note it is not the gas line or anything to do with electrical. it is a flexible hose that usually blows hot air outside.

Whirlpool gas dryer LGR6636PWO heats for appro. 5 minutes & quits heating but still runs.

First check the exhaust vent and connecting vent material for a clog. If vent is OK,replace the gas valve coils.

you could have restricted airflow from the lint screen not being cleaned, a bad blower wheel, or a bad thermostat. take the vent hose off the back and check to see if the air flows out the dryer with good force, if so your vent is probably clogged or not open in the wall. the vent hose may also be picned off from puching the dryer back to far.

Dryer will not produce hot air. What could be the problem? I opened the back panel and there is a square shaped box that was hot. Is that the heat element?

The heating element should be nearly the diameter of the drum and is generally round. If the box of which you speak is about 4 to 6 inches square, it is probably an electrical connection box and shouldn't be getting hot. If this box has a removable cover, unplug the power cord and remove the cover--look for loose connections. If all ok, replace cover. Does the drum turn? Start the dryer and check for air blowing from the outside vent. If not, check for plugged lint filter (wash with hot water and detergent) and lint plugging the flex-hose between the dryer outlet and the outside vent. After running for a little while, feel the back of the drum to see if is generally hot--if so, then the heating element appears to be working. Hope this helps.

Gas dryer won't heat after a move.

Make sure the vent is not blocked. Run the dryer and feel for a strong air flow at the vent outside. The most likely cause is flexible vent hose used on the dryer is squeezed behind the dryer, blocking air flow. Don't use flex hose. You may have a lot of built up lint in the dryer vent pipes also, which would need to be cleaned out. Also, make sure you are still using the same type of gas. (natural vs. LP) If different, dryer would need to be converted for proper opperation.

Natural gas dryer running too hot

I suspect you have a blocked air vent. A blocked vent will make you dryer run hot. Most vents get blocked by lint near their exit to the outside. There's usually a screen at this location to prevent small animals from crawling into your house. Often this screen gets clogged with lint. Most vents are designed to allow removal and cleaning of this screen from the outside.

I have a lg dryer model dlg2532w gas dryer it does get warm

if the cloths are warm and wet the problem is not with the dryer but in the venting. check the air flow at the end of the line (where the exhaust leaves the building) if the air baffels are not fully opening when the drier is on there is probably an issue with the venting. remember to tape up the venting joints after inspecting it because it is also the exhaust for the gas. hope this helps.
