Question about Dryers
Thanks for using FixYa. Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. But as per the description you have provided the vent is clear then please check that the heating element might be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes than normal. Please check that the element is not partially burned out. If still the issue is not resolved, then the motor is not running at the desired speed and that’s why it takes more time to dry than normal and also check that it may not be spinning in opposite direction (which occurs due to ground short with main). And also check for the blower motor. If all the above is not the issue then it might be the timer because the dryer is taking more time than the selected and required to be replaced to resolve the issue. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
