Make sure that there are no kinks in the export for heat (usually a tubular plastic device that exports the evaporated water out of the machine) and that it is properly attached. If this does not work, check to make sure that you did not break a belt in the dryer. If it is old a new belt may need to be replaced. See replacement instructions if necessary.

Dryer lost heat


This may be a heating element issue.
If you want to do a few things before calling someone, you would want to start by making sure all of your dryer settings are set correctly. Some dryers have "air" settings or "delicates" settings. These settings are going to be very low heat so the clothes are not ruined.

Also make sure that the lint screen has been cleaned each and every time you have started a new load. If not, you can UNPLUG the dryer, pull the dryer out and with some simple tools, take the back off and vacuum what you can get to. If it's very dirty you'll want to call a professional. You'll need it cleaned and your problem diagnosed. If cleaning the lint screen is not something you have done on a regular basis, then please start. This could be a fire hazard if it is not cleaned regularly.

Another thing to check is your vent or vent hose. Depending on how your set up is, if your hose is crimped behind the dryer and the heat can't escape, the clothes will not be able to dry. This would only be something if you have some heat but clothes are not drying. Also, sometimes due to the age of the hose, previous use, not cleaning the lint screen, etc, the venting from the house to the outside could be clogged. Again, there will be some heat, but the clothes will seem to take forever to dry.

Good luck.

How to Fix Dryer Lint Problems


<span>Instructions</span> Things You'll Need: <ul> <li> <span>Vacuum cleaner</span> </li> <li> <span>Screwdriver</span> </li> <li> <span>Electric leaf blower</span> </li></ul> <ol> <li> Remove the lint trap from the dryer and peel off the accumulated fuzz.<br /> </li> <li> Vacuum the top of the dryer, the floor nearby and underneath for lint at least once a week. When you remove the lint trap, tiny particles fly into the air and settle nearby. Behind and underneath the dryer are favorite hiding places for dryer lint.<br /> </li> <li> Disconnect the vent tube from the rear of the dryer and inspect it every month. Dryer lint accumulates more easily in flexible plastic tubes than rigid aluminum ones, because curves halt the lint's path.<br /> </li> <li> Clean the vent tube leading to the wall annually. As for the tube leading to the exterior, a trick that sometimes works is aiming an electric leaf blower down the tube. The leaf blower can expel the lint through the exhaust on the exterior. Before using the leaf blower, check that all duct work is fastened securely.<br /> </li> <li> Unscrew and remove the back panel on the dryer, if you're mechanically inclined. Particles that escaped the lint trap can accumulate inside the dryer cabinet, so vacuum this area.<br /> </li></ol>

Dryers do what they are designed to do, Dry things. In the process everything inside the drying cylinder makes dust and airborne particulates called Lint. The Biggest bane for dryers is Lint accumulation. Clean the Lint filter screen. If it detaches from the dryer housing with screws remove them. Clean out what you see if you have a wet vacuum with a small hose carefully push this down into the opening and vacuum it ou. Another thing pull your dryer out from the wall disconnect the power and remove the vent hose. Vacuum inside the opening in the back of the dryer. You would be surprised how much lint accummulates here. Lastly check your vent hose for lint accumulation or blockage. If you find it blocked, disconnect the hose from the vent going outside and clean it all out with a vacuum . Put it all back together and run a load of clothes if you dont see a marked improvement in circulation and drying time, then either the blower fan is n't working properly or you have a burned out thermostat. If you have heat flowing turn it up to max heat and see how hot it really gets if on opening the dryer you feel extreme heat then it is either working right or the thermostat is not shutting off at the high limit. the Thermostat is a piece of Bimetallic metal that is extremely sensitive to certain temperatures. When they reach the preset heat limit they shut off allowing the heating elements not to burn out. A good investment is to keep dryer maintenance at regular intervals. They sell dryer cleaning brushes and Vacuum hose attachments for getting into the deep crevasses and nether regions of your dryer. Good luck and happy drying

Turn dryer on and it starts to heat up and then the heat stops and within about 2-3 minutes will start to heat up and then the heating up stops.


Clean out the exhaust vent tubing really good.. A moister sensor will detect any build up of lint and shut the heat off

I have lint all over dark clothes EVERY time I wash. This problem is getting worse. What can I do?


If you have cleaned the lint trap, unplug the dryer and you should remove the exhaust hose in the back of the dryer, you should clean out as much of the dryer as you can inside the hole where the hose attaches,
using a duster with a round head, one that is round with bristles all oner it is perfect for cleaning out the hose.

I do not know how long it is and where it goes to the outside vent, but if it is not right there, you can either replace the hose, or take a shop vacuum and put it on reverse so it blows out air, put the vac hose in the dryer hose and fill in the space with some cloth or a towel so that the lint does not cover you, and blow out the hose.

If you can take a ladies stocking and place it on the back of the dryer
a take the ring that holds on the hose to hold on the stocking and plug in the dryer, then set it to cool or no heat and run the dryer for a minute or so, this will blow out all the lose lint from you cleaning it.

The stocking should fill with air, and there should be a strong amount of air coming out of the dryer, if not it is still clogged.

I recently had an ventless Bosch dryer installed (WTE8600US) and I keep receiving this message F:03 which the manual says "check hose for condensation outlet". any advice?


For the F:03 problem on the Bosch Axxis (WTE86300US) do all the things mentioned in Solution #1 above. Sometimes the lint in the condensation filter channels (those that run from front to back)can be quite stuck. Use a pipe cleaner to get in there or a garden hose with a spray nozzle. However there is one more crucial step not mentioned in the manual or in Solution #1. Once you remove the condensation filter you will see a small plastic panel on the lower wall of the condensation filter slot. Slide a flat blade screwdriver and gently pop it open. Under the panel is a small chamber where you will find a slurry of lint/water which is what clogs the condensation outlet. With latex gloves reach in there and clean it out. Blow hard into the dryer through the condensation hose to clear up any last bits. Pop the panel back in place. This should fix your problem.

THE AIR FLOW THROUGH THE DRYER BEGINS UP THROUGH THE HEATER AND INTO THE DRUM THROUGH THE HOLES INSIDE THE DRUM TO THE LEFT IN THE REAR.
THESE HOLES ARE METALIC IN COLOR AND MAY SHOW SIGNS OF DISCOLORATION DUE TO THE HEAT OF THE HEATER ASSEBLY. FROM THERE, THE AIR WILL FLOW ACROSS THE CLOTHES AND THROUGH THE LINT FILTER.
IF YOUR LINT FILTER IS LOCATED ON TOP OF THE DRYER,
THE HOLES WILL BE IN THE BACK WALL OF THE DRUM ON THE RIGHT. IF YOUR FILTER IS LOCATED IN THE FRONT OF THE DRUM, THE HOLES WILL BE JUST BELOW IT.

USUALLY, LINT WILL COLLECT DOWN INSIDE THE SPACE WHERE YOU INSERT THE FILTER ON A FRONT LOCATION.
PULL THE FILTER OUT AND LOOK DOWN INSIDE. USE A CENTER CARDBOARD FROM GIFT WRAP TO CLEAN OUT THIS AREA. FLATTEN OUT THE CARDBOARD ROLL AND PUT IT DOWN IN THE SPACE ATTACHING THE OTHER END TO A VACUUM CLEANER HOSE.
ALSO, DISCONNECT THE DUCT WORK FROM THE REAR OF THE DRYER AND CLEAN OUT THE DRYER DUCT AND THE HOUSE HOLD EXHAUST DUCTING. WHEN REATTACHING THE FLEX DUCT TO THE BACK OF THE DRYER, MAKE SURE THERE ISN'T ANY EXCESS FLEX DUCT SNAKING BEHIND THE DRYER. CUT IT TO THE LENGTH NEEDED. MAKE SURE IT ISN'T FLATTENED BETWEEN THE DRYER AND THE WALL WHEN YOU MOVE THE DRYER BACK INTO PLACE.

Dryer takes forever


You have a clog somewhere in the venting. Anywhere between the lint screen and the outside of the house. Use a vaccum with a crevice tool to reach behind the lint screen. Also check the flaps on the outside of the house. You can also access the machine end of the vent pipe by removing the two Phillips screws on the angled panel just below the dryer door. If you feel you need to take apart the machine further to clean behind the lint screen, write back. It's very tricky, and will take some time, but I can walk you through it.
Good luck!
