    My GE dryer takes two cycles of 80 minutes to dry. What needs to be fixed? It worked fine one day and the next it's been this way for about six months.

    dryer does not dry clothes after two cycles. Lint passes the trap in the dryer and accumulates in the duct of the house. Puddles of water also appear during every cycle.

I need to know if you have an electric dryer, or a Gas Dryer. I also need the make and model # so I can properly help you diagnose the problem.

Not drying as well as it was, not getting as hot as it used to, taking 3 cycles to dry towels


Hi,

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

Here is the rest of this tip about Dryer Maintenance

My dryer is slowly - over the course of about 2 years - taking longer and longer to dry my clothes. I usually have to run the clothes through 2 or 3 drying cycles to get them dry. What do you think is...


Usually this is caused by the heating element (s) going out.

Tear the dryer down to the elements and test for continuity through them. If one fails the continuity test, replace it.

Best regards, --W/D--

My dryer takes 2 to 3 cycles to dry my clothes.


Check the following areas to combat this issue. in most cases, this will be a Venting 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.

Dryer takes too long to dry my clothes


My dryer has been taking longer and longer to dry my clothes. Sometimes it takes multiple cycles before the clothes become dry. They seem to be getting warm, but are not drying as quickly as they use to.

Taking to long to dry


This could be two problems. First problem, you must have good ventilation. Blow out the dryer vent with a leaf blower or some other type of fast moving air. Also be sure that the vent on the outside isnt blocked by little woodland creatures trying to find a nice warm home. Also be sure that the vent isnt kinked or blocked between the dryer and the wall. If that doesnt work, you may have only 1 of the 2 elements actually heating behing the drum. This would entitle removing the front and drum to check. Let me know if you need further help.
