If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

Here is the rest of this tip about Dryer Maintenance

My dryer heats up but does not dry clothes. I check ventilation and lint trap, there is no buildup. what could cause it to take forever to dry clothes?


If the drum gets hot to a real degree it has to be a blockage between the drum to where the air exits the home.

They do make a brush designed to go into the area where the lint trap is and be long enough to come out the rear of the unit---A lot of places will come out and professionally clean from trap to vent outlet

A blockage can be dangerous as hundreds of fires happen each year from the lint catching fire in the dryer.

The tube to the outside may seem clear but if blockage anywhere from lint trap to it, that will cause this problem and present a possible fire hazard.

Its not unlike having your vac not pick things up very well...except there is rarely a fire with that.

Hot tub won't get hot enough


Low Heat -
This problem is not usually associated with the heater element but more often a result of water flow issues. Specifically blockages such as dirty filters, partially closed valves etc... But... excessive scale/mineral build up on the element is on uncommon and can result in reduced heating. The fix is easy, use chemical treatments to reduce scale build up.
No Heat
No heat or water is only heating to 60F- 80F? If you are getting a low reading this is because the water is only being heated by the friction caused by running through the plumbing system and pump. Assuming there has not been a dry fire (visual signs of burn/overheat marks/ damage to the heater tube) and your temperature sensor and hi limit are in working order.
A bad element. Like a light bulb, spa heater elements will burn out over time & there are many factors which affect their longevity.

My Maytag model LDE312 dryer heats up but doesn't seem to get hot enough. It takes 2 hours or more to dry. Is this a thermostat or heating element problem?


Could be a blockage in the exhaust. If the clothes are coming out hot but still damp after the first cycle then there is a blockage in the exhaust in the dryer. This blockage could be where the lint filter is or in the exhaust vent to the outside of the unit. The best thing to do is pull the unit from the wall and access the back panel. Remove the back panel and with a wet/dry vac clear out the inside of the unit. Then check for a lint blockage in the hose that is connected to the back of the dryer. That should have corrected your problem If an element goes out there is no heat at all and I doubt the thermostat would go out like that Maytags are rare to have a thermostat just go out

Hope this helped

GE DWSR463EGWW electric dryer takes forever to dry clothes. Heating element comes on but then goes off. Where do I locate the thermal fuse if that is the problem.


The thermal fuse only shuts off the elements if the proper air flow isn't acheived. If the clothes are hot but still damp after the drying cycle then you have a blockage in the dryer exhaust either at the hose at the back of the machine or in the lint filter area. Check both and clean and your problem should be solved.

Hope this helped you

Dryer heat cuts out after 10 min. please help tested thermostats and element. cleaned out lint where eve i could. what else could it be


Pull the dryer out , and remove the vent hose from the dryer . Dry a load of clothes , and see it it dryes in a suitable time . If so , then a vent problem , either kinked hose , outside vent blockage , or if an up vent thru the attic , then possibly blocked . A dryer either heats or doesn't , and excessive time , indicates a venting problem .

Hotpoint aquarius ctd40


most likely, there is a blockage in your exhaust. take it apart and check every inch from your dryer to the outdoors. i clean mine once a year, it keeps the dryer running efficiently. when lint backs up in there, the heat cannot get out and there is a sensor that will shut off the heating element when it gets to a certain temp, so your clothes will take a long time to dry

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


Most common cause of this is a clogged venting going to the outside to test this remove the vent from the back of the dryer and run a load if it drys ok them you know you have a venting issue and will need to be cleaned out if not plz repost and we can look deeper into it
