SOURCE: LGE59777S Not drying

There is a little sensor that tells the dryer when to heat and when not to heat. that sensor is bad. If you take the back of the dryer off you will see it. It is about the size of a half dollar and has 2 wires that plug into it. While you have it apart make sure that the dryer vent on the back of the dryer is not plugged with lint. Major cause for fires in dryers.

SOURCE: my dyer will not dry the clothes

First unplug your dryer from the electrical outlet. Next pull your dryer out from the wall. DIsconnect your flex outlet hose from the dryer and make sure it is not stopped up with lint etc. Next check the wall adapter to make sure it is clear of lint etc going to the outside of the house. If both of these are clear look inside the dryer outlet by looking in the tube where the flex hose was connected. You will need a flashligt to do this. If there is anything stopping it up remove it. If your dryer is getting hot but not drying there is probably something keeping the air from going out of the dryer to the outdoors.

Tumble dryer not drying properly


Make sure your dryer vent is clean. This can get clogged with lint over a period of time. Make sure to check both inside and outside vents

Gas dyer not staying on, all the light are flashing


Does your model have sensor strips inside? Wash them with windex to remove any moisture barrier on them. They sense wetness and if they don't feel any wetness they make the control think them clothes is dry and it shuts down the dryer thinkin them clothes is dry.

My kenmore elite HE5 gas dyer won't dry properly. It will heat but not as well. It take along time to dry. Sometimes I have to dry my clothes twice before they will get completly dry. What could this...


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.

My dyer heats and tumbles, but doesn't dry


I'd check first for clogged vent hose or clogged lint filter or clogged vent flap on wall (outside).

If that's not a problem, it may be a faulty thermostat. Heating element is probably okay if it heats some of the time.

More info, let me know.

My dyer is not heating all of the time no matter what setting I use. I had 2 rollers replaced because they appeared to be rubbinbg and making a noise. The dryer is still not heating and drying the clothes


try flipping you breaker off and on 2 or 3 times (hard and fast) if this don't work check element, timer , thermostats and safety switch on motor (check wiring diagram for pin numbers of safety switch)....if this switch goes bad the motor will still run but it wont let power go to element

Dyer malfunctions


Clean off the two metal bar inside the drum, near the lint filter. (these are the moisture sensors, which can become coated with fabric softener sheet residue, preventing the dryer from "seeing" that the clothes are still wet)

Takes too long to dry clothes


Check the dryer venting from the dryer to where it exits the house. It is most likely coated with lint and needs to be cleaned out.
