I always have to run a dry cylce of clothes through 2x before the clothes are dry. It is worse on the dry cycle rather than on the timed setting. Help? This is a Kenmore Electric Dryer, Model No. 110.965662.10 purchased in 1996 from Sears.

Your vent path is the issue. Check the entire length of it from beginning to end.

Clothes are still wet after last spin cylce


Most washing machines do not dry the clothes completely. Make sure that your clothes are evenly spaced & the weight is balanced to get the best spin speed. When the cycle is complete, you will need to put the clothes into a dryer or hang them up to get them completely dry.

Dryer is set to run 40 mins when it shouts off at 0 on the dryer is has only run 20 mins according to my stove timer


Dryer has a moisture sensor that detects the clothes are dry so it shuts off earlier. If the clothes are still damp then the dryer vent may be plugged and causing the unit to run hot or not able to fully evacuate the air from the machine. Clean the vent and make sure it's completely free and try again. If it short cycles again and clothes still damp you may have a sensor controller issue.

You have a confused mainboard. Try unplugging the machine for 20 seconds and plugging it back in to resolve this issue I hope, otherwise, you're gonna need a main board.

My dryer doesn't seem to be drying my clothes. I have to run the cycle 2x for clothes to dry and the lint is cleaned out


Lots of the time lint still gets by and starts to block further down into the ductwork and around the fan.
Unplug dryer from the wall
Pull dryer out and remove hose from the back
Inspect inside with light you can put your arm up to to feel around
Look for the odd sock, clumping of lint or bounce sheets
If dryer is not even warm when running the heat elemnt or thermostat may be faulty

I put a small load of washing in the dryer and it doesn't dry and takes 2 or 3 drying cycles.


A restricted vent is the most common cause for long dry times. You can run a load of clothes with the vent hose disconnected from the back of the dryer. If you don't get any heat dring a cylce, and you verified an "air fluff" cycle has not been selected, I suggest having a professional service tech give you a diagnosis. The problem could be in one of a few thermostats, the heating element, main control (timer or control board), sensor, motor switch or even supply voltage.

DRYER RACK DOES NOT DRY CLOTHES


try timed dry cycle instead of the auto-sensing setting. In your drum if you have auto dry such as less dry normal dry and more dry, There is a sensor sometimes in the drum and sometimes in the exhaust right after the blower. If in the drum then your clothes brush by this and if moisture is sensed then it keeps on drying. With your rack the clothes can't touch the sensor so it tells your dial to turn and that items are dry which in fact are not. Try this and see how it does.

UN-ending Auto dry cycle


This is caused by the dryer vent being blocked and not allowing the moist air to be removed from the dryer. To confirm this. Dry a load of close in a timed dry setting. Set the time on a specific time and then start the dryer. Wait for about 5 min. See if the timer has moved. If it has then the problem is not the timer. It is the exhaust vent being plugged up somewhere. Moisture how the auto dry setting works. The dryer sences moisture and runs longer to dry your clothes. With the dryer exhaust vent blocked, wet moist air is comming back into the dryer and fooling the sensor into believing the close are not dry and runs for a very long time. It is not uncommon for this problem to cause a dryer to never shut off. Your dryer exhaust vent is plugged up with lint somewhere.

My Amana Model NDG5800AWW dryer has ceased to dry clothes dependably. The Only setting that still sort of works is HIGH timed drying, and this heats up to what used to be the "delicate" setting....


if you are using the auto dry setting and the dryer is still running after 5 hours you either have a timer issue or a thermostat problem.

The timer is driven by a motor, if the timer motor is bad the timer wont time out.

in the auto dry cycle the thermostat has to cycle off and on which then sends power to the timer again advancing the timer.

set the timer in a timed dry cycle for say ten minutes, if the timer advances and turns off then you know the timer works. if it doesnt advance you have a timer motor issue,

if the problem is the auto cycle, you could replace the thermostat, about $20 american. however a clock timer would be cheaper.

Based on how old is your machine and do you want to stick a timer in it after already paying the service man is up to you.

A basic bath towel load should be dry in about 50 minutes, this varies on how good your seals are and how long a vent you are running, if the dryer vent was plugged you already have shortened the life of your heating element.
