If your dryer is STILL heating, but your clothes won't dry efficiently, you may want to check the dryer interior cabinet and/or the entire run of the exhaust ducting from where it exits your dryer to the point where it leaves your home to ensure you have no kinks, clogs or choke points that are restricting the exhaust air flow. The following link explains many of the common problems that can cause poor drying efficiency and longer dry times:

Before assuming you have a problem with the appliance, check your installation to ensure you are providing the dryer with proper exhaust and air flow. A dryer in a clogged state or having improper air flow will not dry efficiently and will cause the heating circuits to actually overheat. Eventually, this can lead to component failures and is the source of many fire hazards. If you have any questions, please post back with a complete MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

It's not hot enough-


Check that the exhaust vent/duct is clean and clear. If the exhaust airflow is restrict, it will effect the temperature of your dryer. Also, many dryers today have the lint filter. Make sure the filter is clean.

Why is dryer is not getting hot enough


not getting hot or hot enough? if not hot at all it's probably the thermal fuse is blown, if not hot enough you could have a blockage in the blower vent system, which could be from the blower wheel in the dryer to where it vents out of your house. if no blockage then it's probably one of 2 cycling thermostats

NOT DRYER CLOTHS LIKE IT USE TO TAKING MUCH LONGER


Check for clogs in the vent air line. If dryer lint or some obstruction is slowing the air flow it will take longer to dry clothes. Also the dryer may not be getting hot enough. Check to see if the clothes feel hot or warm when you reach inside. If it feels hot enough it is likely an issue with air flow. heat and air flow are required to dry clothes.

Clean/repair the dryer vent. If the airflow is restricted the result is the one you just described.

Dryer does not get hot enough to dry clothes Roper REX4634KQ1 Electric Dryer


The vent may be stopped up, or the vent hose crimped so the air cannot escape, you can check the air flow at the vent on the outside of the house while the dryer is running.
try cleaning the vent and the lint screen with a vacuum cleaner, you may need to replace the vent hose, this should solve the problem
