Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

Clean your dryer vents, and lint filters. You may need to clean vent from wall to outside. to test this.. unhook vent pipe from wall..and run dryer and see what happens. If the problem does not improve, you may have a defective heat coil.

SOURCE: Dryer taking longer to dry clothes

For a gas dryer:
Assuming the dryer is working properly and the control cycles are ok, look for things like a restricted venting system which inclides the exhaust, lint screen, etc. This would be the large pipe connected to the dryer exhaust that vents outside.

If it's an electric dryer, there could be issues with heating elements, thermostats, a control board, the timer, etc. Also check for any excessive lint build-up.

check to make sure lint trap is clean also make sure exhaust is not clogged. if both are clear than you probably need to replace your heating elements. if this the case than you need to call an appliance repair tech. trying to do it yourself could result in electricution. also make sure your drum is turning.

SOURCE: Dryer takes too long to dry my clothes

My dryer has been taking longer and longer to dry my clothes. Sometimes it takes multiple cycles before the clothes become dry. They seem to be getting warm, but are not drying as quickly as they use to.

Check your lint vent hose and the vent to the outside part is clogged. If any lint is built up it will restrict the air flow hence longer time to dry.

I have an LG WD-1457RD washer and dryer and it shrinks all of my clothes, Possibly Temperature problem?


Very few driers have temperature controls. The best way to stop this happening is to run it for less time. Take the clothes out when they are still very slightly damp. If you hang them up straight away, you will find that most wont need ironing. Some dryers allow you to set the amount of moisture in the clothes when they shutoff, but they generally are the most expensive ones.

Wrinkles clothes terribly. Solutions.


Check your settings on your dryer. See if it's on a longer duration of time to dry. Dryers have different wording depending upon the make and model. If you're trying to dry smaller loads the heat settings s
does not have to be set for very long. Heavier, loads with thicker clothing will need to dry a little longer. When you take the clothes out of the washing machine, do you shake the clothes before putting them in the dryer? And do you use dryer sheets? Believe it or not, they're not only used to help make your clothe's smell fresh but they also help elevate static and a few wrinkles.

My dryer is slowly - over the course of about 2 years - taking longer and longer to dry my clothes. I usually have to run the clothes through 2 or 3 drying cycles to get them dry. What do you think is...


Usually this is caused by the heating element (s) going out.

Tear the dryer down to the elements and test for continuity through them. If one fails the continuity test, replace it.

Have a whirlpool cabrio gas dryer. It takes several hours to dry one load of clothes. The clothes seem to stay damp towels may take all day... what could be the problem


Have you opened the door while its running to see if its warm inside (heater working) If its getting warm and still not drying the clothes properly you likley have a air circulation concern. With the unit running check the exhaust vent outside from dryer it should have a good flow of warm air, if not you have a restriction sowher between the unit and outside. Heat alone will take forever to dry clothing,you need good air circulation to remove the moisture from the clothes otherwise all you will end up with is warm moist clothing.This generaly happens over a long period of time and then all of a sudden you realize the dryer is not working like it use to..Hope this helps you with your concern.....

Dryer is running longer than usual, it's tumbling,


no make listed here...I would pull the hose off the back of dryer and see if a lot of air is blowing out of vent. if not, heres your answer a clogged filter area ..if air blowing out leave vent hose off and dry clothes with vent off for one cycle. if clothes dry with vent hose off..you have a venting issue and need your vent cleaned out...

if you are using the sensor drying cyle this could cause the unit to stop. it will detect the most dry clothing first usually light clothes that dry faster.if not and you are useing timed dry the most likely cause is a faluty timer,or a thermostat sesnor is going bad and turnoing off the dryer before the clothes are dry

Kenmore dryer is not drying


The following link will give you some advice on dryer heat problems:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

Pay particular attention to the paragraph that discusses dryer ventilation. Most dryer heat related problems are caused by poor air flow due to clogged ventilation. Follow the advice given to isolate whether you may have a ventilation problem internal or external to your dryer first. You may not have anything wrong but some lint accumulation. If left in a clogged condition, the dryer heating circuits will eventually overheat to failure.

If you verify everything and still have long dry times, make sure you are separating items correctly. I'm not trying to insult your intelligence, but some people simply do not know. For example: dry towels and jeans separately from other articles of clothing because they take longer. And. overloading a dryer will make it dry less efficient.

I hope you find this information helpful. Please let me know if you still require assistance.
