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.

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.

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:
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.
