I have a Kenmore Dryer (Model 970-C87022-00), there is heat, however it does not dry the clothes. They actually feel wetter.


Hello,

The most typical reason a dryer will heat yet not dry the clothes is going a blocked.restricted or crushed vent. Check the venting from the back of the dryer all the way outside and make sure its blowing good air pressure all the way through it,Also check inside of the dryer at the housing where the blower wheel is for lint build up.

Tip

Saving money drying clothes


The biggest thing to remember about your clothes dryer is that it has to get the moisture out. If you keep your venting clean it will aid your dryer in shorter drying times. The more heated dry air it can pull through wet clothes while they are tumbling the faster clothes will dry.
If the venting is restricted by lint or kinked, or low quality venting, all end up costing more in drying times. Use good venting, preferably steel, and do use the proper vent cap on the outside wall.(check lint does not catch here also)Many service calls could be prevented by regular maintenance of venting.( thermal safety fuses which all dryers have are the reason for most service repair calls when the venting has not been cleaned) Also the shorter distance your dryer is vented, the better.

The second less obvious problem is not cleaning the lint screen. All the air or almost all passes through this screen before being exhausted outside. You need to clean the lint first. Second you need to wash the lint screen in the sink to clean off any build up of fabric softener that can also cause slow drying. Water should run straight through the metal mesh, if it ponds it is coated with softener, and water should wash this off.(I have been on service calls where dryers were not drying correctly and just washing off the lint screen of fabric softener fixed the problem)
Lastly wiping the two short parallel bars about three inches long found inside the dryer with alcohol to remove any fabric softener or other coating will keep the automatic cycle working right.Not all dryers use these........
Before thermistors, when thermostats were all that was out there.........
Hope this saves you some money and time.......

Dryer gets low heat takes three cycles to dry a small load, I checked the gas flow and it comes on and burns blue but must not cycle right because the clothes are not drying. I have never repaired a...


If a dryer is heating but takes to long to dry you can bet the dryer has a air flow problem. I would check the dryer vent first for restrictions due to lint build up or kinks. Remove the dryer vent and clean the lint out. Also check the outside flapper on the end of the dryer vent to make sure it's free of lint and able to open all the way.
It also a good idea to take the dryer apart and check around the blower/fan housing for lint build up.

Hi My dryer has to run twice before my clothes are dried. What do you think is the issue, and how can I fix it?


One of two things, first heating element going bad. Second dryer vent is clogged with lint, causing moisture not to escape. I say problem is my second choice. Disconnect dryer vent and vacuum out dryer, then clean out vent all the way to the outside. Lint builds up on walls of vent, causing problem you have.

It takes forever to dry a load of clothes. Drum


Hello,
Have you checked your vent for blockage? Over time, lint build-up in the vent and in the back of the dryer makes your drying time longer and longer. Unplug the dryer, pull it out and disconnect the vent. Using a flashlight and a vacuum, clean out the back of the dryer that connects to the vent and the vent itself. If you have a long vent line, you'll need to find a away to clean it out to clear any blockage. I use a hand-held plumbers snake that rolls up and pulls out as much length as needed. Then spin it around in the vent to knock off lint attached inside the vent tube walls. It may be easier to do this from the outside, but you can do it from the inside too. Check your outside vent cap for blockage and make sure the vent flap outside is not stuck closed. Also make sure when you push the dryer back into place, that you don't squish the vent tube, if it is made of plastic or foil. After reconnecting the vent, turn on the dryer. The air flow may blow out the lint you have dislodged with the snake. Clean out as necessary at the outside vent. I have a long vent line on my dryer, so I have do this annually. This has helped shorten my dry time every time I do it. Of course, cleaning out the filter regularly, does help too. The more often you clean the filter, the less lint that will build up in the vent . Hope this helps. Douglas

Heats but doesn't dry


If your clothes are coming out hot but still wet you have a vent problem Either the lint trap at the dryer is clogged or the vent coming out of the dryer to the outside has a build up of lint. If you don't clean the blockage it will burn out the heating elements and cause you more problems. A shop vacuum will take care of both problems in cleaning out lint trap and dryer vent

Good luck hope this helped you some

Cloths take way too long to dry. Heat is working in dryer. Timer works, counts down from 60 min, buttheremo drying timer takes way too long.


You will need to check the dryer venting system for a restriction. If there is a restriciton in the venting system the dryer will get hot but the clothes will stay wet due to the moisture never leaves the dryer. First check the air flow at the vent exit located outside. Verify that there is plenty of airflow. Make sure the vent screen is not plugged. Then remove the screen and visually inspect for excessive lint. Then go inside and check the moisture vent hose behind the dryer. Verify that the vent hose is not kinked or restricted. Then remove the hose and clear out any excessive lint. Then check the vent opening at the back of the dryer for any excessive lint build-up. There is a vent cleaning kit that you can purchase from any home improvement store that you can use to clean out the venting system also. When you are done airflow should be good and clothes should properly dry.

Dryer is spinning and warming up but it's not drying


Exhaust full of lint. Vacuum into dryer exhaust as far as you can, Then clean out complete vent from dryer to outside. Any lint will catch moisture and clothes will not dry.

Not drying clothes


If the unit is heating properly which it should pull around 25 amps when heating , and the unit is tumbling it is 100% an exhaust issue , either a kinked duct behind the unit , a ball of lint stuck in the duct , lint build up outside in vent , or water in under ground duct. If you find the clog it will be FIXED!
Let me know if you have any other questions.

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.
