If it has heat but isn't drying clothes you need to clean out the dryer,next time send the brand name and model number. unplug the dryer.you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,go outside and make sure the vent is clear,then take off the vent line from the back of dryer,if it's a long run blow out the vent line with a leaf blower,if there's a birds nest or something in there it will blow it out,then you have to vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,you should do this once a year so you don't have a fire and less problems with dryer,let me know how you make out

    also if it's a gas dryer you could have bad gas coils.when the coils are starting to fail,the dryer will work fine for the first 15 to 30 minutes then the gas will not come back on.when the coils heat up they fail,when they cool down the gas will light again.next time send model number and brand name

Kenmore 110.66902690 electric dryer does not dry completely


Dear Barry,
Try 2 things.
One, be certain the clothes are very dry coming out of the washing machine.
If the washer leaves the clothes wet ( like the belt might be slipping), it can take the dryer forever to finish drying the clothes.
You can tell by hand-wringing them.
You should not be able to get any water out of them by hand-wringing after they have spun dry in the washer.
Two, try running a load with the vent hose unhooked off the back of the dryer.
If this fixes the problem, you are having a "clogged vent" issue somehow.
Be blessed.

Clothes aren't drying...


First check and clean the lint trap. Next turn on the dryer and go outside to the dryer vent and make sure you have good airflow coming out. If you don't have good airflow then there is a blockage in the vent system somewhere.

Whirlpool dryer is not drying properly. Have to go through a couple of cycles to dry clothes.


2 things are needed to dry clothes. 1 is good air flow. Check to make sure that the dryer vent is not clogged or partially clogged with lint. Also make sure there are no kinks in the vent hose. With the dryer running you should feel good air flow blowing out of the outside house vent. The 2nd thing a dryer needs heat. Check to see that the dryer feels warm to hot when you reach in to tough the clothes. It is possible that the heat element has partially failed. Another thing to investigate is how well the laundry machine is spinning out the water in the spin cycle. This spin cycle is used to get as much water out as possible prior to placing the clothes in the dryer. The wetter the clothes when they come out of the laundry, the longer it takes to dry them.

Dryer is not heating up to dry clothes


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

Taking long time to dry the clothes


Due to a dryer either heats or no heat , I would suggest pulling the dryer out and removing the vent hose . Dry a load of clothes to see if they dry normally . If they do , this verifys that the vent hose is either kinked ( restricting air flow ) , or , if the vent runs UP inside the wall , there is a restriction between the inside vent hose to the outside vent . May have to go into the attic to clean .

Our model medt5870tw0 maytag dryer does not dry properly


First , remove the vent hose from the dryer to see if good air flow is coming out the dryer vent . If not , could have a bad blower wheel . If so , then check the vent hose AND vent to outside to see if blocked . A dryer will either heat or not heat . Since your dryer heats , try drying a load without the vent hose connected to the dryer and see if it heats fine (telling you , a vent problem is apparent . Sometimes a dryer is pushed too far back , kinking the vent hose also .

I have a gas Whirlpool Duet dryer and sometimes the cycle wont complete and the clothes arent dry ( very damp). when i use the timed dry option i ave the same result. last week my washer overflowed and i...


Check your exit vent outside of your house... what you can do is remove vent hose on back of your dryer... run dryer and feel the air coming out of the vent right behind your dryer.. now reinstall your vent line and check outside,,, see if you feel the same or about the same air flow... if your air flow is block, then your heat will not come on regularly to dry clothes... good luck

Does not heat


"Steam drying will get how but the air that comes later to actually dry is cold so the clothes never dry"

I am assuming "how" means hot in this sentence, if so, I think I can help! There is no "steam drying" phase for your dryer so what is probably happening is; the wet clothes are being heated properly [as a result causing steam] however if this steam does not escape frum the dryer it will simply condense back onto the clothing [leaving them moist/wet].
Check your flexible tube from the dryer and the vent on the outside of your home to make sure they are unobstructed. Hope this helps!

Dryer not drying clothes


Make sure that the flex hose going out from the dryer is not blocked. You should check it from both the back of the dryer and all the way to wear it vents outside. It could also be the thermostat, which is cheaper to replace than buying a new dryer.
