Kenmore 500 dryer used to dry a full load of cloths in 1 regular cycle of about 40 to 50 minutes. Now the same cloths are taking nearly 2 hours to dry.


I think I would check and see if the dryer vent tube is clogged or nearly clogged. It sounds to me like it is. Try this first, if its not, I will continue to try and solve this with you.

What is a normal wash and dry cycle for a dishwasher?


Assuming this is a residential dishwasher, the least cycle time is 18-19 minutes for light load . Average is 30-50 minutes. some have long times and super extra cyccles that will go to 70-85 minutes. Note that the drying cycle will will be the same regardless of what the wash/rinse times will be; also, the dry cyccle will be the same regardless if you use the heat switch or not. Goodluck, Macgivor

Not drying like it used to


The Load will make a differance on how long it takes to dry. I would check your exhast vent for the dryer and make sure its clear. the vent hose from the dryer to the wall should be clear and not crushed. if it is, a 50% crush or blockage will make it take 50% longer to dry. the vent from the wall to out side the home could have a blockage or some of them have those little vents that open when the dryer is on. and sometimes they get stuck, this will cause a longer dry time.
Turn on your dryer and Find that ouside exhaust vent and if you can reach it, make sure its blowing strong. and with heat and nothing blocking it. (( somtimes birs will make a nest in them.))

Wont dry clothes, i can turn it on and wait a second then open door and heat appears to be onbut it seems to take hours and hours to dry a load


You may have a blocked vent.
Remove the connecting vent from the rear of the dryer.
Run a load of laundry.
Use timed dry at 50 minutes if possible.
If it dries correctly clean and repair the exhaust vent.

Back & top of dryer get hot, clothes take long time to dry.


First thing to check for is blocked airflow. Check the dryer as well as the venting from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house good airflow is neccessary. You could remove the venting from the back of the dryer and run a load to see if that helps. Do not leave it off as it is exhausting lint and if a gas dryer spent fuel.

Whirpool Dryer......


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
