Dryer heats sometimes and other times it does not. tested heater element and fuses and they were good. replaced both thermostats and it still does not heat well. any suggestions


You did not post make or model, so I can't be certain what technology your dryer employs or it's age. Here is my suggestion... Have you cleaned the lint trap area all the way to machine exit? How about the hose to the outside, is it clean and not bent or restricted? If there is a restriction, the steam cant escape and and it will take forever for the clothes to dry. I'd also check to see if there is air coming out the exhaust. If not, check to see if the fan is clogged with lint, intermittent or missing. If no air flows through the drum, it will keep it hot and moist, and never dry the clothes.

Our Kitchen Aid Gas dryer is heating, but not drying the clothes. Can this be fixed?


Hi,

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

Clothes take long to dry on Kitchen Aid Model - KEYE660WWHO


First thing to do is vacuum out all lint from dryer, unplug, remove back and vacuum all lint out of it, also where vent hooks up. Then clean out duct work from inside of home to where it exits. Excess lint holds moister and causes dryer not to dry.

Dryer is taking too long to dry


Dryer needs to be cleaned. Unplug, take off back and vacuum all lint out of dryer, also take off vent and vacuum inside of vent area. Then clean dryer vent from inside of house to where it exits. Make sure all lint removed. Lint holds moisture and causes dryer not to be able to release steam caused by heating wet clothes, thus clothes don't dry.

Kitchen aid dryer Partial drying the cloth


First you should make sure the exhaust vent and ducting and lint trap is not clogged or restricted, birds/insect nests, or lint build up. If the dryer is heating up it is most likely an airflow issue.

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.

Dryer heats up ands pins, but it takes forever to


Hi, First thing to check is the 4" venting to the outside. Make sure it is free of any lint and that there are no kinks in the hose. If this is a gas dryer, the couls on top if the gas valve could be getting over heated and not opening the gas valve later in the cycle so there will be no heat.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Whirlpool Model LE7010XSNO. No Heat After Lint Cleaned Out


Those are likely possibilities. Also check the wiring for disconnected or burned terminals especially in areas that get hot. The element comes out easily to visually check it for breaks. If that's OK I'd look at the safety thermostat.

Dryer is heating but not get clothes dry...


make sure you have a strong air flow from the dryer it self take hose off and run the unit it should force your hand away if not your dryer is stopped up you will have to take fan casing off and clean (the metal going to hole for vent hose) if you do go outside and make sure you vent outside is opening and free of lint also wash your lint filter with warm soapy water fabric sheets stop them up and cause longer drying time
