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.

Heats up but takes several cycles to get clothes dryer


Check for a restriction in your exhaust vent. not just behind the machine but all the way to the outside vent,should have good warm airflow at outside vent. With no good air flow you have no way to get rid of the moisture. and all you will end up with is warm moist clothes. this can happen slowley happen over time and next thing you know it takes several cycles to dry the clothes .it cost a lot to dry them this way

Dryer has some heat but is taking a long time to dry clothes


This type of problem can be caused by a partially burnt heating element, a blown thermal fuse, or a faulty high limit thermostat. All of these components can be checked using an ohm meter or multimeter. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

Dryer heats up but clothes not getting dry after several cycles


Hi, First thing you want to check is the 4" vent that goes to the outside. Make sure that it is clear of lint and that it is no pinched or kinked at all. Is this electric or gas dryer and what model is it?

Dryer not heating as it should. Gets warm, but takes several cycles to dry clothes


Could be 2 things... either your heat source is out of repair or your vent is blocked. Since you say it only gets warm I'll assume the problem is with the gas coils inside the unit. These parts are replaceable

Dryer does not dry


Problem is likely:

- heating element, or
- one of several thermal limit switches in the electrical circuitry

If you want to further pursue, let me know.

Extremely low drum heat but setting is on HIGH.


Electric (Kenmore - 60931) dryer takes forever (several cycles) lately to dry clothes set on high heat (actual heat in tub feels low though). There are no obstructions in the venting and the 240 volt connection is fine. The timer rotates the dial (timer motor working). Help!!!
