How long does it take you to dry your clothes? Normally, it takes 50 minutes (1 cycle) to 1.5 hours to completely dry clothes. However, if it's taking you at least 3 cycles (probably 2.5 to 3 hours) to dry a single batch of clothes, then, there might be a problem with your dryer's igniter.
Thanks for using FixYa. The first thing that should be checked is the Thermal fuse which is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover. If this fuse goes bad the dryer will not heat and you’ll have to replace it as it cannot be repaired. If this I fine then you’ll need to check the thermostat, igniter and coils. Also as its only 3 months old so it is recommended to use the warranty to avoid any further issues. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
Check your cvent going outside. also check to see if the vent is smashed. try using the time dry cycle and see how your clothes turn out. if they are still wet or damp. you have a heating problem. try those solutions.
Note: Normal drying time for a dryer
is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct,
is not clogged.
Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot
of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying
time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer
cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the
dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance
repairman perform this task.
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one
of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance.
Replace the defective thermostat.
3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case
it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes.
Replace the element if found defective.
