Exhaust fan on dryer is not working. I have cleaned the area at the bottom of the lint filter and cleaned the passage of the blower thoroughly.

Why would my crosley dryer get really hot but the clothes don't get dry

If the dryer is getting hot (the heater element is working) but the clothes aren't drying, it suggests that there is insufficient air flow through the dryer. Remove the exhaust tube from the back of the dryer. With the tube removed and the dryer running, check for hot air (lots of it) flowing out the exhaust vent of the dryer. If there is good air flow, check the exhaust tube for lint build-up or a clog that is blocking the air from flowing through the tube. If there is no air coming out of the exhaust vent with the exhaust tube removed and the dryer running, it suggests that the problem is with the exhaust fan inside the dryer.

Whirlpool gas dryer will not gethot enough to dry

the usual problem is lint build up and or to long of a run for the exhaust tube..When was the last time you cleaned you dryer exhaust ? I had an issue where I had to run my dryer through 4 cycles before a load would get close to being dry. I thought I has cleaned out all the lint from the dryer.. Finally I just ripped out all my exhaust tunes and sure enough there was a a large amount of lint build up where the shop vac did not reach. SO i replaced all the exhaust tubing and since I have a long run I added an exhaust fan, now the dryere works like it should,..

Maytag Legacy series dryer making loud noise. Sounds like something flapping.

A common problem on these dryers is the blower wheel itself will wobble out and make noises. Pop the top with a putty knife then remove the front panel. Check the blower housing for looseness.or something in it. I worked on a monkey wards dryer with a bad blower wheel and made crappy movie on my phone:

DLG5988S gas dryer takes long time to dry cloths in either mositure sensor mode or timerd mode. I have throughly cleaned the dryer exhaust and internal part of dryer where all electronics and controls are...

How long is the exhaust venting system from the dryer to the outside, where it vents? The dryer is not equipped to push air through any pipe that is too much past 8-10'. Each 90 degree bend in the pipe adds 3-5', so a few feet plus a few 90 degree turns makes it nearly impossible for the dryer to do a good job drying clothes. I own a Tjernlund LB1 dryer boost fan and it works wonderfully - a great solution to drying clothes in a reasonable amount of time with much less wear and tear on my dryer.

Here is another idea - I recently opened up my dryer to fix a problem and found that the interior exhaust pipe - the part that takes the exhaust air out of the dryer, into the vent pipe on the back of the dryer and eventually outside - had become disconnected INSIDE the dryer. The dryer itself was full of lint and the air wasn't getting out of the dryer at all. If you have this problem you'll also have a lint problem, so check this out - it would be an easy thing to fix.

Dryer heats and turns but no air out the exhaust it is not pluged though

Check the lint screen first. If no luck there, it's possible that the fan discharge itself at the bottom of the dryer is plugged or that there is a problem with the exhaust fan itself. You may have to remove the back of the dryer and check the discharge pipe from the fan back to the fan unit. Turn off the gas first before you pull the dryer out and unplug the dryer.

Dryer heat output is 148, but takes several runs to dry clothes

You most likely have a ventilation problem somewhere in your exhaust line. This can be very dangerous and a fire risk. You need to do a thorough check of your vent pipe and make sure it is clear and the exterior trap door is working freely.

My tumble dryer works ok but theres no heat been told i need a new thermostat but cant find one with my model number

Non-Specific answer - no dryer model given
The thermostat is likely not at fault,
there is on the exhaust duct of most dryers a thermal protector, thermal cutout, thermal fuse (and a half dozen other names for the same thing)
If the air temperature becomes too hot due to blocked exhaust ducts, lint in the fan, lint screen not emptied or someone opened the door in the middle of the cycle then closed it again. the device fails to protect the much more expensive heater coil and thermostat.
Trace the exhaust duct from the fan housing for a device that looks like this 07b92b9.jpg or this fd3277a.jpg with wires to the terminals.
Test with an ohmmeter or bulb and battery, conducts ok no conduct replace.
take the dud one to the local parts store,
there are very few thermal cutouts, common to many dryers, they will be in stock. and cost very little.
While the dryer is apart, is a good time to clear lint from exhaust hood, ducting, fan, fan housing, to prevent recurrence

Maytag dryer ... where is the thermal reset button???

thermal cutouts, thermal fuses, thermal resets, are not resettable, they are a one shot, last ditch, protective device.
fail once - wear,
fail twice - you must clean the lint out of the fan, and exhaust duct before the house burns down.
the thermal reset is a device like this 2ce0a6a.jpg, or this61220a5.jpg fitted on the fan housing.
conduct good,
open circuit fail and replace.
the local parts guy has them, there are only a few that fit multiple models it does not matter what brand is on the packet

4a10230.jpg clean
0787faf.jpg dont clean
a869f54.jpg the exhaust ducting must be clean to the eternal wall vent
