Question about Dryers
Hi there, my tumble dryer works but it takes nearly two 120 min runs to dry bout 8 items od clothing. just t-shirts and smalls. checked the vent outside the house and there is no hot air or cold coming out of it! What could be the problem changed the hose a couple of months ago but didnt do much.
Please refer to the following link for detailed instructions on how to diagnose you dryer problem.
If you only changed the vent hose on the back of the dryer, it may not have been enough. Especially, if your vent line runs under the house, or through an attic. If you have long exhaust run from the point where the dryer connects to the exhaust, to where it exits your home, you may have a clog EXTERNAL to the dryer. You need to trace the exhaust line and locate the cause of the air flow blockage.
Try removing the vent hose on the back of the dryer and check for air flow. If you still don't have air flow, you have a clog INTERNAL to the dryer and you will need to open the unit and check the blower fan assembly under the lint screen. If you have air flow and still do not have any heat, please refer to the link I provided for advice on how to determine what may be source of the heating circuit failure. If you need further assistance, or have questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
