Try cleaning out the lint filter and if that isn't it, check the hose that goes from the back of the machine to a vent outside. Be sure the outside vent isn't blocked by anything. It could be blocked by something in front of it or something "living" in it. There could also be a blockage of lint . This could require the removal of the outside vent and actually checking it for blockage. Any further questions and you can ask me via email at dw6_edwrds at yahoo dot com.

It is taking far too long to dry, this has only recently started? what could be the problem?


Does it get hot? If it does, then the problem is reduced air flow, caused by a lint filter that hasn't been cleaned, masses of fluff in the exhaust pipe (usually on bends), or the external vent not opening properly. Birds can also nest in the vent pipe if the vent isn't protected or is broken.

If it doesn't get hot, you need a new element. Some dryers have two elements if the dryer has a high and low setting. just one element can fail.

Dryer takes too long to dry. GETS HOT...but not drying. Ran two cycles, frame work was hot, but clothes were not compelety dry. Note: not any lint either.??


make sure all the venting is clear of build up and debris,, clogged venting will not allow the moisture to escape the dryer resulting in damp and undry clothes ,, don't forget to check the outdorr vent and clear anything built up inside of that too

My dryer turns on filter is clean but clothes do not get dry what is the problem?


90 percent of the time when clothes don't fully dry its due to the vent being clogged or obstructed, check the vent tube and the access vent on the outside of the home.

Dryer is hot and running the clothes don't get dry


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

I push the button to dry my clothes and it is still damp. The dial has a 30 minute side on each side. It is a new machine. I'm used to setting the dial one time and my clothes are dry.


Make sure you don't have the vent kinked or stopped up with lint. Sounds like your dryer may be overheating. The vent connects to the back of the dryer and pipes to the outdoors.

The dryer will no longer dry. the last time i used the dryer within 5 minutes there was a burning smell , and now the dry will no longer dry my clothes. every time that i use the dryer i always clean out...


Most likely your venting is kinked or clogged.  First check at the back or your dryer for kinks.  If it is not clogged then check outside your house where the venting comes out with the dryer running if you feel strong airflow then the venting is clear.

UN-ending Auto dry cycle


This is caused by the dryer vent being blocked and not allowing the moist air to be removed from the dryer. To confirm this. Dry a load of close in a timed dry setting. Set the time on a specific time and then start the dryer. Wait for about 5 min. See if the timer has moved. If it has then the problem is not the timer. It is the exhaust vent being plugged up somewhere. Moisture how the auto dry setting works. The dryer sences moisture and runs longer to dry your clothes. With the dryer exhaust vent blocked, wet moist air is comming back into the dryer and fooling the sensor into believing the close are not dry and runs for a very long time. It is not uncommon for this problem to cause a dryer to never shut off. Your dryer exhaust vent is plugged up with lint somewhere.

FRIDGIDAIRE GAS DRYER MODEL # GLGR642AS2 IS NOT DRYING CLOTHES BUT GAS IS IGNITING. THANK YOU. DON


Hi Don,
So let me get this straight, you are getting heat from the gas burner and the drum rotates but your clothes remain wet? You can check a few basic things to identify where the problem lies.. First off, have you checked the lint trap and cleaned it? Secondly, have you checked your vent system ( meaning : are you sure it is not clogged anywhere in the duct or at the end where it exits outside? If that's OK.. when your system is drying clothes.. do you get hot air flow at the end of that duct? If not, your blower may not be working ..You need to move that hot air out of the tub for the system to dry. Heat, Motion to move clothes, air flow from the blower and an unimpeded path via the vent duct to outside.. Hope one of these things to check gets you going. Regards...
