SOURCE: Dryer takes too long to dry my clothes

My dryer has been taking longer and longer to dry my clothes. Sometimes it takes multiple cycles before the clothes become dry. They seem to be getting warm, but are not drying as quickly as they use to.

SOURCE: Dryer taking longer to dry clothes

For a gas dryer:
Assuming the dryer is working properly and the control cycles are ok, look for things like a restricted venting system which inclides the exhaust, lint screen, etc. This would be the large pipe connected to the dryer exhaust that vents outside.

If it's an electric dryer, there could be issues with heating elements, thermostats, a control board, the timer, etc. Also check for any excessive lint build-up.

SOURCE: dryer is not getting as hot taking longer to dry

If your dryer is STILL heating, but your dryer is showing signs of heavy condensation or longer dry times, you may want to check the dryer interior cabinet and/or the entire run of the exhaust ducting from where it exits your dryer to the point where it leaves your home to ensure you have no kinks, clogs, or excessive bends. As the dryer exhausts, moisture from your clothing is circulated with the warm air. If you have any restrictions in the exhaust system, the moisture will collect inside the ducting and drum. The following link explains many of the common problems that can cause poor drying efficiency and longer dry times:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

Before assuming you have a problem with the appliance, check your installation to ensure you are providing the dryer with proper exhaust and air flow. This is the NUMBER ONE cause of poor drying efficiency. A dryer in a clogged state, or having improper air flow, will not dry efficiently and will cause the heating circuits to overheat. Eventually, this can lead to component failures and is the source of many fire hazards.
If you do determine you have an internal component problem, the next link can give you some helpful advice on how to troubleshoot a dryer with a no heat problem: http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574266-thorough_dryer_advice http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576548-dryer_runs_but_does_not_heat If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

How can I reduce the humidity of the air expelled from the dryer?


If the aire being expelled is humid then this suggests that the unit if working fine. if clothes are still damp then maybe give them a second spin before putting in the drier, or dry them for longer. Also try putting less in the drier and drying in two loads.

Thor washer/dryer combo not drying properly. What is capacity of machine?


Whilst 'combos' will 'wash' a full load of clothes, they are not so good at 'drying' a full load. Since there must be a 'tumbling space' inside of the drum, into which the clothes can fall during the drying cycle.
In a 'nutshell' one 'wash load' equals 'two drying loads',
That's the price you pay for having a space saving 'combo' machine instead of having a 'washing AND a drying machine.
Add to that the fact that most 'combos' are 'condenser driers', as opposed to 'free flow outlet driers',
.
The consequence is that it takes far longer to 'wash and dry' a load of clothes in a 'combi' as oppose to two separate machines

FGR231ASY GAS DRYER BURNS FLEESE MATERIAL CLOTHING WHY


Hello my name is George,
I was wondering if the dryer was just burning fleece or all of your clothes. Fleece is a very delicate material, and should be dried on low temp or delicate depending on your drier. Driers are thermally protected inside with various parts. If the drier is getting to hot one of these would have caused the drier to stop heating. If the drier is burning all the clothes and not just the fleece I would recommend having a technician come out and check it as this could be a hazard for you and your family.

Doesnt dry very well. takes about two days for clothes to dry completely.


If your drier is getting warm. You need to check the vent hose and the vent to the outside for a restriction. If the vent hose is stopped up, she will not dry proper, the hot moist air can not get out of the drum and just keeps it all inside. Now if is not getting hot, you have an electrical problem with the heater coils, that may take a tech. to come out and fix for you. Hope this helps Fix ya up.

My drier gets warm but not hot???whats wrong....I check exhaust system cleaned it and vent system too. power is normal I put it on express drying too and warm not hot?


Most electric driers have two heater coils, inside that provide heat to dry the cloths. Wires like in a light bulb only bigger. I suspect one of these coils is burnt out and thats why it is only getting warm not hot. Also be sure to remove the hose from the back of the drier and check for a restriction there.

NOT DRYER CLOTHS LIKE IT USE TO TAKING MUCH LONGER


Check for clogs in the vent air line. If dryer lint or some obstruction is slowing the air flow it will take longer to dry clothes. Also the dryer may not be getting hot enough. Check to see if the clothes feel hot or warm when you reach inside. If it feels hot enough it is likely an issue with air flow. heat and air flow are required to dry clothes.

Drier runs hot


A pretty common problem with these wonderful dryers is the fact that they have a plastic blower wheel. Over time the hole the shaft attaches to gets worn out and causes the wheel to slip. This makes it take longer to dry the clothes and overheat. Restricted airflow due to bad blower. Seen it many times.c3d4a43.jpg1bd8fba.jpg44ca933.jpg97a9c4a.jpg

Electric drier takes 2 to 3 cycles to dry one normal size load


Have you tried cleaning the actual inside of the drier?
When you use drier sheets the wax on the sheets melts onto your clothes and makes them soft, but the wax often gets stuck in the holes of the drier making it incapable of drying the clothes in one load. Try scrubbing the inside of your drier with some hot water.

Neff washer/drier


soap drawer is just a slide fit - give it a good yank. for the dryer, take the top off and there should be a mainifold across the top with stats mounted on it. one or two may be re-settable stats ie have a little button in the middle which press to reset. if this works, cause of stat popping out is usually a lint blockage in the dryer manifold
