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.

Here is the rest of this tip about Dryer Maintenance

Hot Point Dryer won't dry, gets hot on top.


An educated guess would be either the lint tube or the tube that exhausts the air outside is blocked with lint----no airflow or greatly reduced flow will cause this symptom.

The dryer isn't drying. The top an the control panel are very hot to the touch.


Hello Rodney.
What the most probable trouble with the dryer making it very hot to the touch while at the same time not drying is a poor air flow problem. That could a be a broken blower wheel,a blocked or restricted vent.

NOT DRYER CLOTHS LIKE IT USE TO TAKING MUCH LONGER


Check for clogs in the vent air line. If dryer lint or some obstruction is slowing the air flow it will take longer to dry clothes. Also the dryer may not be getting hot enough. Check to see if the clothes feel hot or warm when you reach inside. If it feels hot enough it is likely an issue with air flow. heat and air flow are required to dry clothes.

Slow to dry


Hi!!

Have you cleaned the filter and the exhaust duct??

Lint plugs therm up, the heat sensor shuts off heating element thinking it is hot enough. Result: Clothes not getting dry.

Unplug duct and clean it, also clean the exahust passage of dryer. (where duct hooks to dryer)

Dryer gets very hot on top rear but inside only warm..c


Check that the lint filter is installed properly. Check the vent to the outside and the pipe going to it out the back of the machine are not crushed or full of lint. Is the dryer drum rotating(broken belt)? If you have heat but slow drying check the lint filter and venting all the way to the outside. It is fairly common for the vent to become blocked after a lot of use espesially if it is a vertical vent.

Dryer gets hot but wont dry clothes


Do you know if the dryer vent is free of obstructions?Check outside where the dryer vents outside ,and see if the air is weak or flowing freely.If it is not clogged the air should be pretty strong from the vent outside.If it has blockage it will definitly take longer to dry your clothes.

My kenmore 70 series dryer will not dry clothes, but it does heat up inside and lets hot air out the dryer vent on the outside of the house.


make sure the dryer vent and the house vent are not clogged with lint this will slow down the drying process-mike
