Did you check if the motor works? If it never starts that may be the cause.

Takes about 4 hours to dry any load. Have tried different settings. Husband cleaned lint traps, hoses, etc. Gas turns on and shuts off about every couple of minutes. Any ideasa?


Most likely problem is the exhaust is plugged. Lint build up and eventually restricted the humid exhaust air.

To test for this locate the exhaust vent where it exits the house. With the dryer running feel for the air flow. It should be similar to the flow you feel from hair dryer.

Second test is to light load the dryer setting the heat to high and after several minutes of operation open the door and confirm the clothes are hot to the touch.

Hot clothes and no air flow for ever to dry!!

  1. Remove hose from wall connection. Confirm vent hose not plugged by running dryer. Very dusty process. If no air step 2.
  2. Remove vent hose from back of dryer. Confirm air flow from dryer. Very dusty process. No air step 3.
  3. Service dryer blower likely plugged with lint. If dryer basket turns I would assume blower is also turning connected by drive belt. The blockage internal to dryer.
  4. So if not 1,2 or 3 than blocked vent hose to the outside . Suggest using a vacuum hose to carefully try to retrieve lint build up. Lets hope that it is not a roof vent because it would really suck trying to pull the blockage out. And unless your Santa roof tops are dangerous places to play.
  5. Well at least at this point we know why the clothes are not getting dry. What ever you do do not breach the venting in the walls. Moisture will build up along with the lint and create havic with mold!!!
  6. Call your husband

My LG dryer keeps blowing the high limit fuse. All ducts are clean and clear. Changed the cycling thermostat and high limit fuse and it blew after a day.


This is likely the result of an air flow problem if you are sure the heater is working properly. Ensure you are not running the dryer in a small closed room which would starve the dryer of air dramatically reducing the air over the clothes even if the full length of your vent is brand new. Next, remove the vent hose from the rear of the dryer and check for strong air flow at the outlet. If it seems strong enough then run a vent through a window or out into another room and do one load in this fashion. If this resolves your problem the blockage exists in the vent line outside your dryer and disassembling dryer becomes unnecessary.

If not, ensure you have seen and touched every inch of interior dryer piping and hold the lint filter up to the light to be sure you can see through it. Disassemble and clean ANY section of piping you can't get your hand into. The area below the lint filter tends to catch a lot of lint and can only be accessed by removing the housing at the rear on the left side as you face the rear. Ensure the blower wheel turns when the motor turns. (Newer models may have the filter housing at the front)

Remember.....the dyer heater is energized even if no air flows over the clothes. The heat will usually enter the drum overheating the clothing AND the underside of the top until a safety thermostat turns the heater off. This is a fire hazard that MAY ignite lint or clothing.

Having performed all these actions will likely resolve the problem.

Power indicator lights up but there is no power


Remove exhaust hose. Clean out lint. Remove back of dryer. Clean lint out of air flow system including lint and heat unit(coils). Try dryer. Is heat element glowing red hot? If not, replace heat element. They burn out intermittently and need lots of air flow to have good life. Clogged lint traps shorten life cycles. Definitely a DIY project. See youtube for general process.

When i pulled out the lint trap it was overloaded too and half of it got sucked back down (dryer was still going). it hasn't come back out and everything seems to be working fine. i want to know...


Hi cutieheads...

Yes the lint that you lost could cause major problems later.
It may have gotten stuck on the blower wheel, in the air duct of the dryer, or maybe in the flexible duct that carries the vented air to the outside of your house.
Either way it could cause problems with overheating, blowing out thermal fuses from overheating, or clothes not drying properly and possibly fire.
I recommend that you remove the back of your dryer and locate the blower wheel and duct work, open it up and clean any lint that is there, and then also clean your flexible pipe that ducts the heated air to the outside of your house.
You must remove the lint that can cause a blockage and maybe a fire later as more lint builds up and less air moves thru the vent hose.
Please take time to rate me

Our Amana Dryer is not drying clothes properly. It does not seem to heat up properly and takes quite a long time to dry a load. The air flow seems to be good. There is not build up of lint in the hose and...


Hello there:
Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.
- If the vent doesn't make a difference, then check the blower wheel for excessive lint build up, check that there isn't anything stuck to the air intake baffle inside the drum, (i.e. the screen on the back wall of the dryer when looking into the drum). Check the lint filter chute for blockage. Check that the heating element isn't shorted to ground. Check the exhaust temperature of the dryer. A meat or pocket thermometer can be used for this. It should cycle approx between 110 degrees and 150 degrees. Check that the drum seals are not worn out.

My dyer heats and tumbles, but doesn't dry


I'd check first for clogged vent hose or clogged lint filter or clogged vent flap on wall (outside).

If that's not a problem, it may be a faulty thermostat. Heating element is probably okay if it heats some of the time.

More info, let me know.

DRYER TAKES LONGER TO DRY


you could have restricted airflow from the lint screen not being cleaned, a bad blower wheel, or a bad thermostat. take the vent hose off the back and check to see if the air flows out the dryer with good force, if so your vent is probably clogged or not open in the wall. the vent hose may also be picned off from puching the dryer back to far.

it sounds like there is no air flow check outside of home where vent exits house there should be strong air flow it either a blocked venting or a bad blower fan in the dryer most likely blocked venting start outside then work your back to the dryer if no air flow outside remove venting from the dryer ifgood air flow here the vent is blocked if not blower fan most likely broken these blower fans drive hub round out on the motor shaft of the motor but it would be very loud this should fix it for you thanks kevin
