If you've made sure you have good air flow (you can feel air pressure on your hand where you dryer vents to the outside), try cleaning your moisture sensors. As you put your head inside the dryer drum, look on the rear wall or directly back towards where your lint screen is (depending on the manufacture and model). There should be 2 silver bars. These can get a coating on them over time and cause the machine to "think" the mositure is gone and shut itself off. Run the rough side of a sponge or a fine grit sand paper back and forth across both of them. Let me know if this takes care of it or if the problem persists, send me back your make and model.

Taking too long to dry


your lint trap and lint vent are most likely clogged. Easiest way to fix it is to move your dryer away and disconnect the lint vent from the dryer and then take a yard blower to the back of your dryer with a towel around the blower in the hole to ensure the max air moves through the machine. (Ensure the door is only slightly cracked or your house will get very dusty) then clean the lint trap. Then do the same to the lint vent line (make sure the opening of your vent line on the exterior of home is clear of any debris or critter screen) reconnect your vent hose and it should work as new

Clothes are not drying as fast as before. Lint trap is not collecting ling.


venting issue. check vent tube for restriction. A quick way to know if it is external is disconnect vent tube run a load of clothes if they dry well then it is the tube, if it is the same then it is internal and the dryer will need to be disassembled and cleaned from the lint trap back. Good Luck Tim

Samsung dryer DV448AEP/XAA - lint buildup


Yes this is rellatively normal as clothes are just not made the same way any more. You could turn down the drying temperature slightly and put in an anti static drying sheet but it won't make that much difference.

My dryer is not drying properly. It takes 2 cycles to get clothes dry. I have cleaned the lint traps and vents but that did not seem to help. Is it worth fixing or is it time to get a new dryer?


You need to check the blower compartment to see if there is a restriction in airflow, also check the thermostat on the system as well. Where the stat is located is brand specific. Check your wiring diagram that is typically stored somewhere near the electronics on the inside in an envelope.

My lint trap has very little lint.


Older clothes do not produce as much lint as new ones. Also, if your dryer isn't getting as hot as it used to, then you won't get as much lint either. Does it seem to take a bit longer to dry your clothes? Also, check your dryer vent, if the airflow is reduced, the amount of lint that is expelled through the filter will deminish as well. You may have a build up of lint in the vent ducting to the outside that is restricting airflow.

Kenmore Elite Heavy Duty Dryer 11063012101 Takes Forever to Dry


I think your vent has lint in the line between the wall and the outside of your house not allowing the moisture to get out

FIX

1 when the dryer is running go outside and observe the vent to see if hot air is coming out



2 Turn dryer off, disconnect electric from wall

3 pull dryer out from wall

4 take a nut driver or screw and remove the clamp that attaches the flex vent pipe to the wall

4 Also remove the flex pipe from the dryer

5 Inspect inside vent connection inside dryer for any trapped lint

6 inspect inside flex line for any lint

7 Look inside wall vent for lint you can also reach in with your hand to feel for lint

8 If you have a leaf blower or can borrow one(electric is best) from your neighbor put the snout of the blower into the vent going into the wall seal the area between the snout and the vent pipe at the wall ( i use duct tape you can use wash clothes rags etc

9 start blower and blow any lint in the line out through outside THIS WILL CLEAR THE LINT

10 Reattach the flex to the wall vent and dryer , plug in. run a load and you should be back in business

Good Luck
