The spark ignitor maybe at fault. Listen for the clicking noise upon starting it up the first 30 seconds it runs. If not heard it is in need of a replacement

The dryer doesn't consistently heat clothes... at times you can feel the heat and then others its just cool air coming out the vent outside... this is on the regular setting not sensor drying.... a load of clothes takes 8 hours to dry

Samsung DV448ae electric dryer. Sensor mode not working replaced the moisture sensor with not change. What could it be? Dryer is heating.


I may be misinterpreting your complaint, but I think your stating that the dryer doesn't dry properly. If so, the first thing I would check is to see if the exhaust duct is clogged with lint (they need to be cleaned out once a year or the ability of the dryer to dry clothes properly diminishes to zero).

What I do is, I disconnect the duct at the back of the dryer and connect a shop vac to the duct. (The kit comes with a shop vac hose-to-duct adaptor). Then I go outside, and using an cordless drill, attach a special duct cleaning brush to the drill (the kit comes with several extension wands to increase its length) and run the brush through the outside cover and down into the duct. The drill spins the brush, completely cleaning the interior of the duct. You can buy the brush at any home center, I bought mine at Menards.

Example: Amazon com Deflecto Dryer Duct Cleaning Kit Extends Up To 12 Home...

After I'm done, I'll also use the extension pipe on the shop vac and push it up into the dryer itself to clean out that part of the exhaust.

If you neglect to clean the duct, the dryer will eventually take forever to dry clothes and they will still come out damp.

I would check inside and see the blower itself it may have lint or debris obstructing it, see if u can turn it by hand another thing to check is for full 220 at the outlet and terminal cuz if u only get 110 u will be able to run motor but have no heat

My dryer runs for about 30 minutes then just shuts off before the cycle is finished, then I let it sit for awhile then it will come back on and run again. What could be the problem?


Yu have poor airflow through your dryer and the motor it getting hot and tripping the thermal overload. Or your dryer belt is loose and the belt safety switch is being actuated when it gets hot due to the belt stretching with heat.

Inspect and clean your dryer. remove every bit of lint you can find. Pull off the exit ducting and look inside the internal ducting for restrictions... clean clean clean.
Remove the lint filter...and wash it with vinegar and water then soap and water. Look in the area where the lint filter is installed for lint and clean clean clean. Use a folded wire coat hanger if necessary to loosen up the lint.

Go to the outside thru the wall vent and inpect for lint there also. Check BOTH sides of the metal flapper of the vent for lint and clean clean clean.

Once you have done all of the above and you still have the problem.. check belt to see if it is getting loose with heat.

FYI your dryer should push a relaxed and and wrist away from the exit duct. If you do not have this kind of air flow you need to find out why. Either lint build up or a blower wheel failure.. (cracked hub / spinning on the motor shaft.)

If you need parts information I need your complete model number in any future response.

Dryer heats and runs but clothes are not completely dry. the lint light comes on. have cleaned lint out of dryer including behind and underneath


Hi,

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

Does not dry completely


how well did you clean that duct, the duct is problem 90% of the time when the dryer does everything else, pretty much if the dryer heats and tumbles its doing its job

Kenmore dryer no heat


If the dryer runs - but no heat is produced, there are usually two things that it would normally be - first turn the dryer on and go outside and check the flow at the duct. If the flow at the duct is weak (should be nice and strong) then you more than likely just have a clogged up duct - clean it out and you should see a big difference in airflow and time to dry things. If the air flow is good but there still is no heat - you may have a heater bank that went out, or a hi limit switch that was set

Kenmore 64942300 Electric Dryer runs, no heat


This may seem too simple of an answer based on your extensive troubleshooting thus far, but the most common reason for cold air running of any electric dryer is a broken heater coil. This is simply a coil of wire that is heated to warm the air in the fan duct. These often overheat and break if the vent duct is blocked, too long, or has odd bends that can restrict flow. Recommend replacing heater coil and use smooth wall vent pipe. Avoid coil type flexible duct.

Whirlpool Model LE7010XSNO. No Heat After Lint Cleaned Out


Those are likely possibilities. Also check the wiring for disconnected or burned terminals especially in areas that get hot. The element comes out easily to visually check it for breaks. If that's OK I'd look at the safety thermostat.
