Dryer will heat up then shut off

Most likely it's getting to hot, check your vent and the outside vent hood make sure you have proper air flow. Turn on the dryer check the vent exit to make sure you feel hot air coming out. Take the vent off and check the back of the dryer for air flow. If you have air flow and the unit is still over heating you may need to replace the operating Thermostat. Could tell you more with a good model number should be inside the door.

Takes to long to dry clothes

after checking and replacing the vent going outside still the air was not venting and inside my drier everything was wet although the air was hot. After removing the rear panel i saw the blower belt disconnected. it took me some time to get the belt on but everything is ok and the air is venting and clothes getting dried. Also note that the little pulley came off its positio too.

My dryer is getting so hot that it is shutting itself off mid cycle. I can restart but it only runs a short time....gets really hot and shuts off again!!

Check your entire vent tubing from the outside vent to the line coming out of the back of the dryer.
Overheating indicates low air discharge flow. The air in the dryer must move out quickly so the heat doesn't build up too much.
Try that & post back.

Dryer is hot and running the clothes don't get dry


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.

I have a front load Kenmore dryer HE2 that seems to be getting very hot...only in the inside. You can really feel it more than normal when you open up the door

Your exhaust is plugged. Start your dryer go outside to the vent and feel for air coming out. If no air or just a little is coming out, check your exhaust tubing. Make sure you check the outside vent.

Doesnt dry very well. takes about two days for clothes to dry completely.

If your drier is getting warm. You need to check the vent hose and the vent to the outside for a restriction. If the vent hose is stopped up, she will not dry proper, the hot moist air can not get out of the drum and just keeps it all inside. Now if is not getting hot, you have an electrical problem with the heater coils, that may take a tech. to come out and fix for you. Hope this helps Fix ya up.

My dryer runs and gets hot but takes 2 or 3 cycles to dry .

Please check your exhaust line fron the lint filter to the outside vent. When I say check, what I mean is take the machine away from the wall remove the hose and vaccum out the drier outlet --- use the crevice tool. When you are done with this, put a nylon over the end of the outlet and turn the drier on. You should have a good amount of air coming out. There will probably be lint - the reason for the nylon is to catch it. If not - do it again. (use the air setting) ... do the same with the hose. If you have access to the other end, disconnect it as well .. check that the door on your outside vent is not stuck shut. If you have a plastic hose, please replace it with a flexible metal hose.

I hope this helps you
