Check directly behind dryer to see if there is squished flex vent. Also keep vent as short and straight as possible. Avoid flex venting, or use as little of it as possible.

Dryer takes 2 or 3 cycles to dry


A Whirlpool dryer either heats or doesn't heat . This problem is an indication of a blocked vent hose , from the rear of the dryer to the outside vent outlet . Try removing the vent hose from the back of the dryer and dry a load , to verify this problem . Wet lint inside the hose also means the air cannot escape to the outside .

My kitchen aid dryer does does not reach the higher temperatures it used to--it takes a much longer time to dry clothes.-even when set at "high"


Please clean the entire vent system from the dryer to the outside.
Make sure the vent is not smashed behind the dryer.

Long time to dry complaints are usually due to restricted house exhaust vents.

To test...Remove vent from dryer and operate dryer with a wet load if the unit dries ok the vent is @ fault.
If not one stage of the heat element could be burnt out.

AUTO CYCLE TAKES A VERY LONG TIME, HEAT IS OK, GAS DRYER


First thing I would check is the vent. If you have good heat but it is still taking too long, usually it is caused by a vent that is either too long , kinked or clogged. if the dryer is auto dry and not electronic dry then you will need to gauge weather the load needs more or less dry. If it is just taking a long time for the clothes to dry, more than likely the vent. If the clothes are dry before it is done running then it is more than likely a setting issue. Way out of the box .... are your clothes spinning out dry enough in your washer? do they dry in the normal time on timed dry?

The energy saver doesn't work so we have to use


Clean and straighten the connecting vent on the rear of the dryer. Check the blower wheel attached to the motor. Make sure it is clear of lint and turning OK.
If the heat does not escape the timer does not advance in auto mode. In the timed mode the clothes steam rather than dry.

Dryer won't heat up to dry the clothes the heating element works


Check the following to address this issue--


Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.

Will not dry clothes fully. the machine heats fine but it takes two or more cycles to fully dry a little load. someone told me about a part that may need repaced around the lint trap.. Any ideas?


Your lint exhaust is blocking the heat flow.
Remove the vent from the rear of the dryer and run a timed cycle load for 40 minutes.
If laundry is dry, repair the outside vent.
If not dry,open the dryer cabinet and clean the inside lint and heat vent.

Dryer heats with smaller loads


1. unplug your machine and rach as far in the exhaust part of the dryer to see if there is an obstrucxtion
2.Take out the lint filter and make sure there are no gaping holes in the screen
3. Check the exhaust house leaving the machine or blockage, this hose should not run more than ten feet for optimal drying time.
4. its your heating element

Frigidaire Dryer takes too long to dry.


First thing I would do is to take the drum out of the dryer and make sure the back is not all clogged up with lint. That is a very common problem with Frigdaire dryers. The back is where the dryer draws the heat from and it sounds like you have plenty of heat. The only place the heat will go is up and that may be why you are geting burn marks. I wold also clean out the front where the lit filter is that to gets blocked up. I think if you check all that ad clean it out good the dryer should work just fine.
