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.

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.

Dryer takes a long time to dry


there is no truth to the fact that dryer elements start to burn out there fore it takes longer to dry cloths the only reason a dryer will take longer to dry cloths is due to lint build up within the unit take the back off and vacume all the old lint out and around the heating element and it will work like new

Slow to dry


Hi!!

Have you cleaned the filter and the exhaust duct??

Lint plugs therm up, the heat sensor shuts off heating element thinking it is hot enough. Result: Clothes not getting dry.

Unplug duct and clean it, also clean the exahust passage of dryer. (where duct hooks to dryer)

Gas dryer not drying clothes


Hi, Dryers are simple machines to fix yourself so the main reasons dryers do not dry cloths is listed below.
1. Make sure the vent is clear from obstruction of lint built up by taking off vent and make sure the vent flap is opening when dryer is on, beware most house fires are caused by neglect of dryer vent!
2. People allot of times overload machine which causes cloths not to dry.
3. Electrical Repair Needed: one of the thermostats in the dryer are defective

Taking to long to dry


This could be two problems. First problem, you must have good ventilation. Blow out the dryer vent with a leaf blower or some other type of fast moving air. Also be sure that the vent on the outside isnt blocked by little woodland creatures trying to find a nice warm home. Also be sure that the vent isnt kinked or blocked between the dryer and the wall. If that doesnt work, you may have only 1 of the 2 elements actually heating behing the drum. This would entitle removing the front and drum to check. Let me know if you need further help.
