Question about Roper REX3614KW Electric Dryer
It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these. Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it. Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician. Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.

This does Not seem to be a part needed issue- The unit exhaust-duct is restricted. If you are Not a handy person- please reach-out to a service technician- Dryer needs to be cleaned internally and exhaust needs to be vacuumed by a professional.

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.

check to make sure lint trap is clean also make sure exhaust is not clogged. if both are clear than you probably need to replace your heating elements. if this the case than you need to call an appliance repair tech. trying to do it yourself could result in electricution. also make sure your drum is turning.
