Did you clean all the venting inside and out? Also, there is a flap inside right before the vent. It opens to allow air and closes to heat up and close air off. Sometimes this flap can get stuck

Dryer not drying clothes, have had a small load in for over 2 hours still wet....


Hello s cissy. If the clothes are hot but not getting dry you probably have lots of lint accummulated in the vent pipe which is stopping the wet air from escaping to the out-of-doors. To solve this pull out the dryer, unplug it and then disassemble the vent pipe from the lower back of the machine. Clean out the inside of the pipe and the interior of the machine where the pipe connects.

If the clothes never get warm to hot, then you most likely will have to replace the heating element. Get back if that is the case and we can talk you through that repair. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

My clothes come out wet after running for a length of time but they are hot


You have an vent issue..If the clothes are hot but not drying your not getting proper air circulation, you need airflow thru the unit to help remove the moisture from the clothing other wise you end up with warm moist clothing... Start unit and go outside to where the dryer vent comes thru the wall and check the airflow with your hand ,you should feel a good flow of warm air. If not some where between the unit and the vent their is a restriction either in the flex duct or the duct work in the wall which will need cleaned out before the clothes will dry in a normal time frame..Plus it cost a lot to run the dryer 2 or 3 cycles to dry clothes Hope this helps Good Luck

My whirlpool AWZ510E washer dryer - the dryer doesn't seem to be working - it goes through the cycle but the clothes are still as wet as before. I am using the same cycle as I always have which used to...


there are 3 reasons for a dryer not doing the job yet running through the motions. 1st, the heat is not being produced and only cool room temp air is circulating. this can be a burned-out electric element or an over-heat sensor, or in0line safety fuse. ( if gas, can be ignitor or gas valve coils).. It could be that the washer is not ringing (spinning) dry the clothes verywell and there is too much moisture stiil in clothes which would double the dry time from 50-60 minutes to 2 hours. 3rd, could be clogged vent line and the hot moist air cannot leave the dryer so the clothes get hot by the moisture stays.

Amana les60aw gets hot in dryer but clothes wont dry. cleaned out vent, shortend exhaust hose. noticed an orange glow coming from back vents when i turned it back on???


The orange glow is the heating element working. It mush have good air flow or the coil will burn out and stop heating. Also the thermal limit will stop the heat if to great. If you went all through the vent and the tubing is not smashed or flat check the outside vent for air circulation, if good try to dry a load of clothes. Are you sure your washer is spinning out well? Wet clothes take longer to dry.

Not drying


I know you cleaned the lint vent but your vent hose is clogged or damaged and there is no air exchange thru the dryer Air can only hold 100% humidity. You could dry your clothes for 10 hours but the air in the dryer is saturated with water and can not hold anymore so your clothes wont dry. Check behind your dryer and Ill bet the vent line is damaged. The problem is the air is not getting out of the dryer. Check the flapper at the end of the vent line. With the dryer running go to the end of the vent hose and there will be no air coming thru.

FRIDGIDAIRE GAS DRYER MODEL # GLGR642AS2 IS NOT DRYING CLOTHES BUT GAS IS IGNITING. THANK YOU. DON


Hi Don,
So let me get this straight, you are getting heat from the gas burner and the drum rotates but your clothes remain wet? You can check a few basic things to identify where the problem lies.. First off, have you checked the lint trap and cleaned it? Secondly, have you checked your vent system ( meaning : are you sure it is not clogged anywhere in the duct or at the end where it exits outside? If that's OK.. when your system is drying clothes.. do you get hot air flow at the end of that duct? If not, your blower may not be working ..You need to move that hot air out of the tub for the system to dry. Heat, Motion to move clothes, air flow from the blower and an unimpeded path via the vent duct to outside.. Hope one of these things to check gets you going. Regards...

Laundry taking too long to dry!


1. Make sure the filter is clean. A clean filter allows for proper air circulation in the dryer.

2. Make sure the rear dryer vent is clean. Move the dryer, unplug it and remove the rear vent hose and clean out any debris from the vent, in the hose and any debris in the outside vent.

Over time, these things get clogged and reduces the air circulation in the dryer, causing it to take longer for the clothes to dry.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
