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

My dryer run all day and night if I would let it.And it takes one day to dry my clothes what is wrong with it


If it gets hot or warm in the drum but the clothes do not dry---the most common cause is a blockage between the drum, lint tube in the unit to the vent that flows the air to the exhaust outside.

If the drum gets much hotter than the air exiting the vent----clean all the from the drum to OUTSIDE.

Note: if there is not proper airflow and a lint build up exists there is the potential for a fire---Hundreds of fires are reported each year cause by this kind of trouble.

If the drum does not get hot inside you may have a bad igniter that heats the air (fires the burner uo inside the unit.)

Does Not Shut Off


1st go the the house breaker (dbl breaker) for the dryer and shut it off and turn it back on, your dryer runs on 220 volts of power but if the breaker is partially tripped it may be only running on 110 volts which is only enough power to turn the lights on and to turn the drum the element needs 220 volts to turn on. If it still doesn't heat after resetting the breaker then you may need a heating element or thermostat. The dryer isn't shutting off because it isn't detecting the clothes are getting dry so once you fix your heating problem the dryer should start shutting off on its own again.

Dryer will get hot but will not dry clothes


If the dryer gets hot, but not drying the clothes my first question would be if the drum is turning or not. If not then I would check the belt and make sure it isn't busted. Then I would check to make sure that your exhause hose is not clogged up. If so clean out.

But if that isn't the problem then I would check the blower assembly.

Dryer runs but does not get hot and dry


It runs since the motor is still working and turning the drum. No heat since the heater element is broken so no heat got produced to dry clothes. Replace the heater element to correct the problem. Good luck

Getting Hot, but not drying the clothes


there has got to be some restriction in the vent system. Take the vent pipe completely off and look in the tube coming directly out of the dryer. Also make sure the drum is turning good speed.
