HI,

Well, if your clothes take longer than 30-45 minutes to dry for a normal load, and your clothes dryer gets warm (or hot) to the touch while it is running...It's your dryer vent that is probably clogged and needs to be un-clogged.


Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

My mattag dryer (mds5500aww) the time started to slowly get longer and longer know every time i start a load it reads 99 min.? the clothes are dry but why the increase in time


Most likely your exhaust duct is filling up with lint. Also check where the duct goes outside the house and see if there is lint built up there. The lint doesn't all get collected in the lint filter, and some of it gets caught in the duct. This makes it harder for the dryer to push the air outside, and so less air goes through the dryer. Less air going through makes it take longer to dry the clothes.
Best wishes, and thanks for using FixYa.

It takes longer to dry your clothes you have to restart the drye


first clean the pip from the unit to the outsde vent.
then inside your unit there are 2 felts that need to be cahnge, over time they go bad and the heat run out the drum and you can feel the hood is hot but it still not to good . it will save you electric bill when you fix it. :)

Dryer starts drying and thinks clothes are dry, but they aren't


Check the timer, and the sensor. Sounds like it is having a problem with the timer or sensor no noticing that the clothes are still wet. Please rate if satisfied. Thank you

You have a computer control board problem and needs to be replaced.  The internal program has a problem and won't time down properly.
