My dryer starts and runs but puts out little heat. To dry a load of towels I must run 3 or 4 cycles


Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum.

Whirpool dryer 10 years old is still heating but taking very long to dry clothes. Checked dryer vent and it is clear. Will heating element help?


If your heating element is still heating up the cause lies elsewhere. Filter for dryer both at the base of dryer and filter location . If you are getting heat then airflow is the problem. how is the fan motor in front of heating element

Dryer runs and heats up.but shuts off after 3 minutes or so model #rex4635ew1


This problem is frequently caused by poor airflow. Make sure your lint screen and vent pipe are clear. Take the vent pipe off of the dryer and check that there's a good airflow from the machine itself. If there's little air there, it's possible the fan has come loose on its shaft. If the dryer sounds unusually noisy (loud, rumbling noises when it's running, for instance) this is a likely cause. Replacing the fan is something you can do yourself if you're comfortable with a screwdriver and have some patience.

Without enough airflow, heat builds up and the safety thermostat shuts off the heat. Get the air moving and it usually solves the trouble. If it doesn't help this time around, post a follow-up. Thanks for using Fixya!

Dryer has no heat. Tested some of the fuses and they test good. Is there a way to test the igniter with a multimeter?


have you checked the dryer vent that goes through the outside wall sometimes the outlet gets clogged up with lint and the heat will recirculate instead of venting outside, the recirculation somestimes tell the dryer sensor that the clothes are dry and will stop sending heat to the dryer or very little heat clear the vent and see if that helps also check the pipe at the bottom of the dryer they sometimes clog up as well if no sucess call a gas appliance repair service you do not want to fool aroud with gas appliances re igniters or where burners are concerned

Tumble dryer is turning and heating up but the clothes are taking twice as long as they should to dry. why? could it be the fan and is it worth fixing or buying a new one


it is not likely the fan. check your vent and see if it is kinked or plugged. look behind the dryer for a kink. take the dryer out and vacuum the vent. then go outside and see if there is enough air coming out. there is the possibility that it could be the element as well as it have two heating element strands and one could be broke or grounded. get a digital thermometer and check temp at back of dryer when you take the vent off. somewheres around 140 degrees F to 160

LG Dryer takes way long to dry


Let's work together to get to the bottom of this problem. begin with these thoughts
;
It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these.

Vent
Heating element
Internal ductwork
Cycling thermostat
Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance.

Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it.

Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.

Dryer air heats up but does not dry the clothes. Just replaced the timer but did not fix the problem. Air vents are cleared.


One of two possiblities:

1. Dryer vent is blocked - check the air coming through the outside vent
2. Blower Fan is clogged - remove the lower front panel and clean out the fan wheel

Roper dryer res7745pq is taking 2 cycles to dry and vent is clean?


check if the thermostats in rear part of dryer are covered with lint. take power off to dryer and remove back panel you will see 2 or 3 thermostats if there is a lot of lint around them carefully remove lint. if that doesn't solve problem make sure clothes are coming out of washer spun dry enough .. check lint screen on dryer. is the vent clear all the way outside ?, in winter little critters like to set up housekeeping in vents where the temperature warms them up. you can also check if heat is cycling open door to dryer and press the door button, start dryer and observe heater , it will come on then shut down and it should come back on in a minute or two, if it doesn't come back on the cycling thermostat may be at fault
