Usually an indication that the heaters are not all working. I'd look there first. Could possibly be an undersized or partially clogged vent pipe too. Both are causes for you issue. check it out

Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

make sure that all the seals are ok, door,front and back drum seal, blower housing seal(inside dryer). also consider that depending on washer type if you overload or have a worn drive belt in washer it will take twice the time to dry. also make sure that the dryer drum tumble. open door,press door switch and start dryer to see if drum turn. lastly disconnect vent pipe behind dryer and dry a load. if it dry ok then you have a partial blockage. you can also have a weak heating element.

My dryer whirlpool wed5300sq0 is getting hot but clothes arent dry


I suspect you have a blocked air vent. A blocked vent will definitely extend your drying time. You may even find yourself having to run a load twice to get it fully dried. One way to confirm this is to disconnect the vent hose from the back of your dryer and dry one load with the machine venting directly into your laundry room. If that load dries quickly then you know the problem is a blocked vent. Most vents get blocked by lint near their exit to the outside. There's usually a screen at this location to prevent small animals from crawling into your house. Often this screen gets clogged with lint. Most vents are designed to allow removal and cleaning of this screen from the outside.

Clothes not drying completely, still damp when taken out.

Our dryer isn't drying completely. We have to put it on twice to dry clothes. Gas front-loading dryer model FSG446RHS0


first and foremost check your venting, por/blocked/clogged venting will result in longer then usual dry times
