Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
What your describing is probably an air flow problem. Pull off the rear vent connect and start the dryer on no heat first. The air-flow should be strong enough to push a relaxed hand and wrist gently a short distance away form the outlet. IF you do not have this kind of air flow the apr passages inside the dryer are clogged with lint.
The passages that need attention
1. The lint filter. Wash it with vinegar and water then soap and water. Dryer sheet particulate or clothing will clog the screen. It wil look clear / clean but, it can be totally blocked.
2. The lint filter cavity remove the lint filter and use a folded wire coat hanger in a U shape to assist in removing lint while using a vacuum to get rid of the lint.
3. Use a flashlight and check the exit vent on the back of the dryer for a white / gray restriction of lint build up. Ust the folded wire coat hanger to assist in clearing the ducting.
4. ANYWHERE you can access ducting clear it.
5. Make sure to check all of the ducting from dryer to the vent flapper outside the house. The thru the wall vent flapper is on of the most common reasons for vents being blocked.

After the serious cleaning session re-test the outlet on no heat to see if it will push your hand and wrist gently away from the vent outlet. If you have good air flow reconnect the vent and check air-flow outside the home at the thru the wall vent. It should be very brisk.

If you can not establish good air flow then there is a problem with the fan / blower wheel. It is most likely damaged. Broken blades, center hub cracked and the wheel is more or less floating on the motor shaft.

This should resolve the problem BUT if it does not respond here and I will help you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Too long to dry my clothes


HI,

It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these.

Vent
Heating element
Internal ductwork
Cycling thermostat
Vent 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.

Heating element Your dryer's heating element may 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. If the element is partially burned out, replace it.

Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.

The dryer is not drying clothes completely, even on high setting. It is however heating up, but not as hot as before. I checked the thermal fuse and it has good continuity. What would be the next step?

Takes long time to dry clothes even though dryer does get warm inside


First check your venting if all is clear. If so it is probaly the dryer coils they tend to fail as they heat up.
It could be several other things thermal fuse, thermal cut out, hi limit thermostat, heat sensor,or ignitor. All of these parts are inexpensive and easy to test and replace.There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru the troubleshooting of these components. It may be a different model but the troubleshooting will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations. Not all models are available. If you need help disassembling your machine there are videos of this also for most styles.

Dryer is taking multiple cycles to dry average weighted clothes/


Make sure the dryer heats up and that the proper cycle is selected. If the dryer doesn't heat, the cause will need to be determined. This can be an ignitor issue, the timer, or a gas supply problem.

If it's heating, check the vent line from the dryer to the outside of the dwelling for lint clogging. Also check the diverter (flapper valve) at the dryer vent outlet to be sure it opens all the way and that the air stream is pretty strong. Lint clogging is one of the most the most common causes of dryers not drying very well or taking an extended drying time period.

If the vent line is longer than 20 feet and has multiple bends, backpressure in the line can cause additional clogging.

My Kenmore dryer (model # 417. 93142201) has intermittent heating


There are times that the electrical code is not followed and dryers are wired into two 15 amp breakers rather than one 30 amp breaker. If two 15 amp breakers are used, they can be tied together. All that leads to a possible solution, check to see if you have two 15 amp and if both of them are turned on.

Dryer stops(over-heats) after approx. 30 min.


This is usually caused by poor airflow. Check for lint buildup in yout vent and around your lint filter. Vacuum any buildup out of the vent and the outside flapper vent. Flexible vent hoses can also get clogged. If you find build up around your lint filter don't use sharp objects to clear obstructions. Without a model number am only giving common reasons. why there are overheating problems. If you dryer has a belt driven blower it could be a worn belt bearing or pulley. Good Luck I think you can solve this one yourself.
