If there is too much air geting in from door seal or lint trap anywhere it can cause this.
Also the operating thermastat may not be shuting off when it should.
You could check the temp coing out of the vent on the back, tipicle flutuates from around 120 to 180 could be different for different machines
a food therm that goes to 200 or over

Dryers do what they are designed to do, Dry things. In the process everything inside the drying cylinder makes dust and airborne particulates called Lint. The Biggest bane for dryers is Lint accumulation. Clean the Lint filter screen. If it detaches from the dryer housing with screws remove them. Clean out what you see if you have a wet vacuum with a small hose carefully push this down into the opening and vacuum it ou. Another thing pull your dryer out from the wall disconnect the power and remove the vent hose. Vacuum inside the opening in the back of the dryer. You would be surprised how much lint accummulates here. Lastly check your vent hose for lint accumulation or blockage. If you find it blocked, disconnect the hose from the vent going outside and clean it all out with a vacuum . Put it all back together and run a load of clothes if you dont see a marked improvement in circulation and drying time, then either the blower fan is n't working properly or you have a burned out thermostat. If you have heat flowing turn it up to max heat and see how hot it really gets if on opening the dryer you feel extreme heat then it is either working right or the thermostat is not shutting off at the high limit. the Thermostat is a piece of Bimetallic metal that is extremely sensitive to certain temperatures. When they reach the preset heat limit they shut off allowing the heating elements not to burn out. A good investment is to keep dryer maintenance at regular intervals. They sell dryer cleaning brushes and Vacuum hose attachments for getting into the deep crevasses and nether regions of your dryer. Good luck and happy drying

What can I do for a hotpoint dryer when it over heats?


Usually, it's because the venting is plugging up with lint.

On mine when I get the overheat light, I undo the ducting from the back of the dryer.
Run the hose from my shop vac (wet or dry vacuum) as far as I can up the duct tubing, and the dryer exhaust duct (in back of the dryer). Then I reverse the vacuum and blow through both, and finish with vacuuming again.
Every 2 years or so it wouldn't be a bad idea to have the exhaust ducts cleaned, as lint build-up is the number one cause of dryer fires!

My dryer is heating fine but there is no air blowing out of the vent. Therefore, clothes are not drying properly. I have cleaned the lent filter, checked the outside and and inside vent for clogs or...


run the dryer with the vent hose off, if it drys correctly then it is in the vent tube. The best way to clean the vent hose is with a leaf blower, now if it is not drying with the vent hose off then you will need to disassemble the dryer, and clean from the bottom of the lint trap back to the back of the dryer with a brush(paint) and a vacuum:

I have had this elect dryer for about 3 years. Same prob from the start.. Takes forever to dry any load of clothes.. Litterally 4 plus hours to dry 5 bath towel and 6 or 7 wash cloths.. this is...


Long drying times can commonly be the result of improper or restricted venting.

Examine your vent hose. How long is it? Too many bends?

Check to make sure your vent hose is clear and free of an restrictions.

If vented outside, is the flap opening properly and free of lint buildup and is the hose clear?

Pull your dryer away from the wall and disconnect the vent hose, use a vacuum or brush to clean out the inside of the hose, sometimes shaking the hose a bit (if possible) will free any lint buildup that your vacuum or brush may have missed.

Don't overlook cleaning out the pipe that the hose connects to on the back of the dryer.

Lastly if you have a lint filter that's on the top like mine, remove the lint filter and check for obstructions there, use a lint filter brush and clean well, this is often overlooked and a major cause of poor drying, overheating, or fire.

Problem for Frigidaire FSE748GF Dryer Brown marks on clothes - What could the problem be and how do you fix it.


If the clothes have a 'burned' smell, likely, the air flow through the machine is restricted and getting too hot. Vacuum out the exhaust hose and the outside vent of lint. Reach inside the machine's air outlet pipe and vacuum all that you can reach. Remove the lint filter and wash it in hot water and detergent to remove fabric softener deposits. Vacuum below the lint filter opening as far as you can reach and inside the door cavity (be careful of sharp edges!). Hope this helps!

Not drying clothes - have heat and tumble but probably not air Kenmore 80 series dryer.


Your vent is clogged. Remove hose from back of dryer and wall. vacuum out back of dryer, dryer hose an vent pipe in wall, if it goes out at roof you will need to clean out. Moisture from dryer is getting caught in excess lint trapped in vent causing dryer not to dry.

Lint filter sensor with Error Code: 01 constantly comes on after the dryer is in use for 5minutes or less. Screen is clean, vent from back of dryer to 3ft of flex hose to outside wall is spotless.


Sounds as though the sensor is dirty of faulty. I would recommend having a service tech out to check and replace. Also if the sensor is going bad, it may be tripping it due to the excessive heat.
