Excessive drying time can be caused by a number of things.

Is the vent clear of obstructions? If not then the vent and ducting will have to be cleaned. This ch be checked by removing the vent hos from the back of the machine and testing the dry time with a small load of a couple of towels.

Is the temperature hot inside of the dryer? If not then the heating element may have a problem.

Is the washer spinning most of the water out of the clothes? If not then the dryer is overworking to remove the water.

Is the dryer fairly old or was it a "scratch and dent" floor model? Then there may not be an adequate seal around the dryer drum and a lot of drying potential is lost.

Is there lint build up in the blower or is the blower not spinning? This cause the air to not circulate. It can be checked by removing the rear duct hose and running the machine.

I have an Amana Dryer, ned7200tw. It was taking forever to dry clothes, took twice through per load. We replaced the heating element 2 days ago, cleaned all the lint while it was apart, and it is still...

Did you check the trap door on the outside of the house where the vent goes outside. If the door is stuck or the end of the vent is blocked you will get excessive dry time like you are having. Also possibly a thermostat inside starting to go bad and sticking.

Manual windows on 1998 Pontiac grand am keep coming off track

I've noticed the grease in the manual and electric regulators over time will dry out causing excessive wear in the "scissor" joint in these cars throwing window out of track. (I think gradual excessive force required accelerates wear) With window partially up check for excessive lateral play in the very center pivot point. Also check for loose mounting rivets and replace. If not too worn and loose rivets were found you may be able to clean and liberally grease assembly...otherwise replace the regulator.

To fix the time

Hie Annalise Dimech.

Is the motherboard always resetting time and settings? if so and if it has a coin shaped CMOS battery (eg, 3 Volt Lithium CR2030) maybe the battery is low or that the battery is not sitting well on the motherboard. you may need to replace the battery if it is low, but if you remove the battery and test the voltage and you find it normal, then it could be that the battery is not sitting well on the motherboard, or that there could be dry joints on the part were the battery sits. Dry joints are minor solder cracks that develop between the solder and PC board or motherboard due to excessive heating or excessive vibration and these become more pronounced with the rise in operational temperature.

Maybe you may need to add more information pertaining to the problem so that I can easily assist you. You can also take a high resolution picture of the faulty motherboard and upload it for me to see.

I have a Maytag Legacy Series and I can't get my lanudry dry. What setting do I need to use to get towels & jenas dry?

Check your venting and make sure it isn't kinked or dirty. The vent is the 4" hose connected on to the back of the dryer. Many times, lint will stop the vent up all the way to the out doors and your dryer will overheat and take a long time to dry the clothes due to limit switches tripping because of excessive heat. Hope this will help you.

Excessive blow by

If you're getting excessive blow by and filing your breather with oil, you need to do a "wet - dry" compression test or a leakdown test to check the condition of your piston rings. It may be time to freshen up the top end.

Good Luck

Abs malfunctioning

Sounds like you have a speed sensor with excessive air gap between the sensor and the pick-up wheel. These are usually sealed in the hubs. Check all you hub assemblies for excessive play. Excessive air gap will cause overactive ABS function.

Back & top of dryer get hot, clothes take long time to dry.

First thing to check for is blocked airflow. Check the dryer as well as the venting from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house good airflow is neccessary. You could remove the venting from the back of the dryer and run a load to see if that helps. Do not leave it off as it is exhausting lint and if a gas dryer spent fuel.
