I sent my unit to a repair company in town because the dryer was getting really hot during a cycle and shutting itself off. They gave it back after just cleaning it out. Now when I try to run the drye


You have I think two issues. One is a clogged vent/vent hose. You need to have the vent system cleaned out. If the unit is not getting hot with the vent off, you probably have a defective heating element. This probably went out due to the clogged venting system.

I cleaned the vent but it still takes to long to dry


if it is heating well, then you have a ventilation problem,make sure lint trap is clean if so disconnect dryer vent hose from dryer turn dryer back on put your hand where vent is make sure good hot air is comming out if so dry a load of clothes without vent tube connected,they should dry in a normal amount of time ,if so then your dryer hose is either bent too much or collasped,if hose looks good then it will be vent leadinding outside you can take a leaf blower and put in vent and blow it out,your dryer either vents on the side of the house or the roof turn dryer on put your hand on exterior vent make sure air is coming through

The dryer does get hot but takes a very long time to dry a normal load of clothes. What I noticed is that the top right hand corner of the dryer gets scalding hot during the cycle. It worked fine before I...


It sound like you have a venting problem. The air from the dryer is probably restricted by either a clogged exhaust hose or duct work in house or a stuck vent flap where air blows to the outside. If your vent goes straight up to the roof, something may be blocking the exit or the whole line may be clogged. Also check for a kinked flex hose that attaches to the dryer. If blockage is in wall of house, there are vent cleaning companies that can clean out the line.

I have to run the clothes through several cycles before they are dry


It sounds like you have a plugged dryer vent. Clean the vent from the dryer all the way to the outside of the house.

Dryer does not get hot enough to dry clothes Roper REX4634KQ1 Electric Dryer


The vent may be stopped up, or the vent hose crimped so the air cannot escape, you can check the air flow at the vent on the outside of the house while the dryer is running.
try cleaning the vent and the lint screen with a vacuum cleaner, you may need to replace the vent hose, this should solve the problem

Gets warm but not hot enough.


Occaisionally this is due to either dryer being set to a 'delicate' or 'low' setting. Most frequently it's due to an obstruction in airflow so the heating coil is cycling off to prevent overheating. The vent at the back of your dryer should be cleaned out (by sucking out the lint with a vacumn hose) at least once a year. The vent pipe out of your house as well. Make sure that the flap on the outside of your house is opening and allowing free air circulation when the dryer is on. And make sure you clean your lint trap every time you use the dryer.

Dryer not going to cool down cycle, thermal fuse failed 2x


Most problems like this arise from air flow problems. You need to break down the dryer and clean out the lint. Including removal of the filter housing.making sure your outside vent is clear as well.If that fuse keeps blowing you especially need to remove and rinse out that filter housing.

Are you getting little or no lint on the lint screen? Are the clothes coming out nearly as wet as they went in, but feel warm? If so, you probably have a blockage somewhere in the vent/duct. Don't just check the back of the dryer, but also check the duct thru the wall and the point where it exits the house (exterior wall or roof). Many times birds will nest in the exterior vents or if they have a screen to keep the birds out it may become clogged with lint. If you have a window nearby try drying a load with the vent hose disconnected from the wall and hang it out the window (you COULD vent it into the house, but you may end up with lint everywhere and a lot of moisture in your house).
