Try removing the hose off of the back of the unit its self and start up if you don't have any air flow the blower wheel is broken, if you do have air flow at the back of the unit somewhere in the house their IS a problem

    Took the hose off the back and no airflow out of unit. Hopefully blower wheel is covered under warrantee? Was hoping for a quick solution. Disappointed that unit breaks down inside of 2 weeks.

Maytag Centennial Dryer (MEDC400VW) not drying properly


First of all, please make sure the vent is clear all the way through. Next the vent must be straight as possible. Next it can not be to long. People think that because they feel the air outside the vent is clear, not always true. The vent can be partially clogged. So make sure. Next, if the vent hose has sags or bows and even tight turns. It can accumulate the moisture in it from the drying proceed. If water has collected in the vent hose the clothes will not dry properly. If the vent is to long it can not dry properly either, the blower on the dryer can only move air so far. So the shorter the better. If all of these requirements are meet. Then, I would have to start checking the thermostats. I hope I have helped you. Please respond if you need further assistance.

Make dryer hotter


Rather than make it hotter, check other things.

The longer the vent line is, the longer it will take to dry.
Also, most vent lines have a flapper outside that closes off when not in use to prevent cold air and critters from coming in.
Check to make sure that it's operating (opening) properly.
Also, no sharp bends in the vent line coming from the dryer to the vent ducting in the wall.

Finally, if it's an electric dryer, you could try one of these:

To prevent lint from flying through the air, the inlet hose (from the dryer) go into water that is poured inside unit, trapping the lint that comes out the vent hose.

DO NOT USE WITH A GAS DRYER!

I cleaned the vent but it still takes to long to dry


if it is heating well, then you have a ventilation problem,make sure lint trap is clean if so disconnect dryer vent hose from dryer turn dryer back on put your hand where vent is make sure good hot air is comming out if so dry a load of clothes without vent tube connected,they should dry in a normal amount of time ,if so then your dryer hose is either bent too much or collasped,if hose looks good then it will be vent leadinding outside you can take a leaf blower and put in vent and blow it out,your dryer either vents on the side of the house or the roof turn dryer on put your hand on exterior vent make sure air is coming through

DRYER TAKES LONGER TO DRY


you could have restricted airflow from the lint screen not being cleaned, a bad blower wheel, or a bad thermostat. take the vent hose off the back and check to see if the air flows out the dryer with good force, if so your vent is probably clogged or not open in the wall. the vent hose may also be picned off from puching the dryer back to far.

Our model medt5870tw0 maytag dryer does not dry properly


First , remove the vent hose from the dryer to see if good air flow is coming out the dryer vent . If not , could have a bad blower wheel . If so , then check the vent hose AND vent to outside to see if blocked . A dryer will either heat or not heat . Since your dryer heats , try drying a load without the vent hose connected to the dryer and see if it heats fine (telling you , a vent problem is apparent . Sometimes a dryer is pushed too far back , kinking the vent hose also .

My dryer whirlpool wed5300sq0 is getting hot but clothes arent dry


I suspect you have a blocked air vent. A blocked vent will definitely extend your drying time. You may even find yourself having to run a load twice to get it fully dried. One way to confirm this is to disconnect the vent hose from the back of your dryer and dry one load with the machine venting directly into your laundry room. If that load dries quickly then you know the problem is a blocked vent. Most vents get blocked by lint near their exit to the outside. There's usually a screen at this location to prevent small animals from crawling into your house. Often this screen gets clogged with lint. Most vents are designed to allow removal and cleaning of this screen from the outside.

Dryer does not get hot enough to dry clothes Roper REX4634KQ1 Electric Dryer


The vent may be stopped up, or the vent hose crimped so the air cannot escape, you can check the air flow at the vent on the outside of the house while the dryer is running.
try cleaning the vent and the lint screen with a vacuum cleaner, you may need to replace the vent hose, this should solve the problem

Gas dryer is not drying clothes


Go out to where the vent goes outdoors and feel if any air is blowing out of there with the dryer running. If you dont feel any air then probably your vent is blocked. You will need to clean it or fix the vent pipe if it is crushed.

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
