Dryer takes hours to dry a load. I must run it through several cycles. Not much air coming out of outside vent so repairman suggested it be cleaned out. My husband completely removed it and found no clogs, and put in all new duct work. Dryer is not any better off. Any suggestions? Thank you.

My only thought is to look at the back of the drier. Check the hose coming out the back to the out side vent, and then run the drier with out the hose for a few moments. See if you have air moving then, if you have no air moving with out the hose attached. Your driers fan blades are ether clogged with lint or they have broken off some how.

Why is my Whirlpool cabrio platinum dryer leaking water, and taking over an hour to dry clothes?


Is this an older dryer? Long drying times are often caused by lack of good heating or poor air movement through the drum. Air movement depends on a properly turning fan and a clear exit of hot moist air to the outside vent. Check and see if you get a strong blast of air from your outside vent. If you don't, you may have a fan problem, plugged vent, or kinked vent tube. The water leaking could be because you don't have any drying going on due to the aforementioned problems.

LG Dryer takes too long to dry clothes


Sure the outside vent is not clogged up? If so it will overheat and turn it self off and do a poor job of drying the clothes.

Also check and make sure that all of the heating elements are working properly.

If a dryer is heating but takes to long to dry you can bet the dryer has a air flow problem. I would check the dryer vent first for restrictions due to lint build up or kinks. Remove the dryer vent and clean the lint out. Also check the outside flapper on the end of the dryer vent to make sure it's free of lint and able to open all the way.
It also a good idea to take the dryer apart and check around the blower/fan housing for lint build up.

My kenmore 400 dryer takes for ever to dry clothes, does it need a new heating element?


Have you ever cleaned it out? If not, that is the most common problem with dryers. It can't breathe and takes multiple cycles to dry the clothes. Unplug the dryer and pull it out. Disconnect the vent from the back of the dryer. Clean out lint from dryer and vent. Take the vent outside if you have to and blow it out with air compressor, if you can. Now check the other end of the vent outside at the vent cap. Clean it out and make sure the vent cap flap is not stuck closed. After reassembling vent, turn on dryer and check for heat at outside vent. You also may need to clean it out more if lint has traveled down the vent. Also, clean out your lint filter religiously for more efficient drying. Those are the easy things to look for and fix on your own. If it still does not improve drying, you made need a repairman to trouble shoot it. Good luck!

Taking long time to dry the clothes


Due to a dryer either heats or no heat , I would suggest pulling the dryer out and removing the vent hose . Dry a load of clothes to see if they dry normally . If they do , this verifys that the vent hose is either kinked ( restricting air flow ) , or , if the vent runs UP inside the wall , there is a restriction between the inside vent hose to the outside vent . May have to go into the attic to clean .

My Maytag gas dryer is not heating correctly. It gets warm, but takes several cycles to dry even small loads.


If you have'nt done it yet, my first suggestion would be to have the vent on the dryer (inside the dryer all the way to the fan chamber) and the dryer vent pipe to the outside thoroughly cleaned.
That is leading cause for dryers not drying completely.
Also, has the dryer always been a bit slow to dry cloths? If so, try leaving a window open the next time and see if it makes a difference. Some houses are sealed so tight, the dryer can't get enough air. A typical dryer will use up to 200 cu/ft of air per minute when drying. If there is not sufficient air, the cloths take longer to dry.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

GAS or Elect. does not make a diffrence 95% of drying too long problems are from a clogged vent try to run a normal load with the vent off the the back letting the hot air into the house if it drys normal then you need to clean out the venting going to the outside If you are worried about the lint blowing inside you can put an old pantiehose over the vent to catch the lint dust
