It appears that moisture is remaining in the dryer and not being vented. Check your vent pipe for leaks and sizing and make sure the run on the vent pipe to the outdoors is not too long (over 6 feet).

Dryer control doesn't move on less dry more dry setting and will not shut off when clothes are dry.


If clothes are hot then try dryer on timed dry. If timer does not move then timer is most likely bad . Replace. If timer moves on timed dry it is not getting hot enough to click the cycling thermostat.(If clothes are overly hot above 160 then the cycling therm. is stuck Replace.

It gets hot but doesnt dry


you will need to remove the front cover,by removing 2 kick panel screws at the base of the front of the machine,remove front cover and make sure blower wheel is turning,if so,then remove any heating ductwork and vacuum out all lint,this sounds like a restriction inside the machine for air flow

My electric dryer heats up but doesnt dry the clothes


If your vent hose is more than about ten feet long, your dryer may not have enough pressure to keep the air moving sufficiently to dry the clothes. Is it possible you are simply over loading your dryer?

Hoover Apollo Delux not drying properly and takes ages. Outlet air is hot but my wife says it's not drying as well as it used to. The front filter is clean but is there an inlet filter that I'm overlooking...


T^o much lint in duct work, causing moisture and not allowing cloths to dry. Vacuum out duct work in dryer and from dryer to outside of home.

Clothes not drying


A couple of possibilities to check. First, is the lint trap empty? If so, then the symptoms point to hot air bypassing the drum. Look for broken or misaligned plastic ducting inside the dryer itself. Check the exhaust air for moisture, as that is a better indicator than temperature. Don't forget that towels hold an enormous amount of water, & can be extremely long in drying, especially if not spun enough.
