Ge Electric drier not working

I noticed that I had to run my drier twice to dry my clothes. So I pulled it out and started to feel the vent hose to see if it was clogged. Then the hose came off the back of the drier and a bunch of water came out. I tilted the drier back to try to get any water out that might be inside. With the hose still off I tried to start the dryer and it would not start. I checked the plug and its in the outlet like its been. I have no idea what I did or why there was water. I would appreciate any help.

My dryer gets hot but does not dry efficiently. Clothes are still very damp after more than 1.5 hours. I noticed that the lint trap is not really gathering any lint.


your problem might be in the actual vent to the outside. If the vent to the outside from the drier has a clog and will need to be cleaned. Without the proper ventallation the clothes will not dry. I suggest pulling the drier out and removeing the vent hose that connects to the outside and clean it. Once this is done you shouldn't have any problems

Hope this helped

Dryer model DE27CW1 takes forever to dry a small to med loads. 3 hours for 6 towels on a manual high heat setting. The dryer vent has been cleaned and A&E Service has been here twice and said the dry...


I think you are clogged.

Pull the machine from the wall ... remove the hose and run the hose of a vacuum (shop vac if you have one) into the machine. When you are sure that is clean, turn around and clean the hose ... or better yet - replace it. Lastly, dont forget the outside vent.

With the drier empty, turn it on to air and see what kind of air movement you get out of the exhaust.

Another thing yhou might want to check is the sensor in the drum (this would apply if you have a sensor based drying system. ) The sensor may be covered with some material that prevents it from reading the dampness of the clothing.

and one more thing ... you do have heat ... right? Gas? - you should see flame in the burner - electric, does it heat up at all? It is not beyond the realm of possibilities that your heater is done ... but check the easy stuff first.


I hope this helps you

Let me know what happens

Slow drying time


very simple, do this test, take your vent hose off the back of your dryer, now dry a load of clothes, if it still takes a long time to dry, then you may need to replace your thermastats, if it works better, your vent hose was pushed in, or smashed or the vent from the wall to the outside is clogged.

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

Dryer not drying


try taking a flashlight and look over the back of the drier see if the vent got mashed or is all coled up and stuff let me know also you can remove the vent from the back of the drier and run 1 load to see if it works normal if so then you know the vents the culprit.

Lint screen caked up


Take the vent hose lose at the back of your drier, and clean your lint screen off or replace it, then try drying some clothes. If this technique minimize or eliminate the caking of your lint screen, then the problem is in your vent hose. Clearly, there is an obstruction, or an improper installation of your vent hose.

good luck

Kenmore 80 series dryer...takes twice as long as it should to dry


no about all the time this kind of problem is caused by some kind of vent restriction start by looking over th back of the drier with a flash light and see if the vent is mashed folded over on its self or too long you only need enough to hook to the connector to the floor then go to the out side with the drier running and check to see if the drier hood attached to the house is opening i some have a plastic screen attached to the hood to keep critters out make sure that's clear rule is must have a 4" opening from drier to out side hood cant hang down under house and come back up as dryer will fill it with water over a peorid of time now easy way to verify vent restiction is to disconect vent run 1 load and see if it dries in proper time about 60 min
