Dryer heating minimum, therefore, it takes longer time than usual.


Make sure that your dryer is venting properly. A lot of times when it takes a long time to dry, because it is not venting properly causing the elements kicking off prematurely.

Timed dry dosent seem to work as well. other settings woork but not as well as used too.


Are we talking about clothes not drying ? If we are you need to check your lint duct for a restriction not just the hose behind the unit but all the way to the outside vent.turn on unit go outside to vent should feel a good flow of warm air.Over time these ducts get restricted and it happens slowly then one day you relize its taking a lot longer to dry than it used to.. To dry clothes properly you need more than just heat ,you need good air circulation to remove the moisture otherwise all you end up with is warm moist clothing......Hope this helps Good Luck

My 70 series dryer timer does not work and eventhough it dries clothes it does not seem to have a lot of heat. what could be the problem?


Could be caused by various issues. The simplest checks would be sure that the dryer ducting or venting is not plugged and cannot exhaust properly. Has it been taking longer to dry that it used to? That would be a sign.

Not drying properly, no heat


Check the following areas thoroughly to address this issue.


1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.

Not heating properly, many cycles to dry loads

Longer time to dry clothes


Remove the rear connecting vent and run a 45 minute timed dry load. If it works correctly repair the connecting vent and or blockage in the wall.
If this does not correct the problem make sure the glow bar is cycling at the gas valve and report back for further repair.

Dryer taking longer to dry clothes


For a gas dryer:
Assuming the dryer is working properly and the control cycles are ok, look for things like a restricted venting system which inclides the exhaust, lint screen, etc. This would be the large pipe connected to the dryer exhaust that vents outside.

If it's an electric dryer, there could be issues with heating elements, thermostats, a control board, the timer, etc. Also check for any excessive lint build-up.
