Check the vent, make sure the vent is clear. If the vent is clear and unit is still taking long to dry, let me know ad we go to step 2. But 8 times out of 10 its the vent.

My old Hot Point Dryer would dry with hot air for about 2 loads (90 minutes) before shutting off in order to cool down -then it would dry again (about 3 hours later). Then the dryer just gave up the ghost...


A dryer motor has an internal thermal proctive device. It may have started out with a severe vent restriction which would not allow proper airflow through the dryer cabinet. A lint build up can result in the motor overheating as you described. The fact that nothing is happening at all would lead me to suspect one of the following. The motor failed completely, a thermal fuse opened, a circuit breaker triped or a fuse opened. Any one of these conditions would prevent dryer operation. But then, so would something as simple as a failed door switch. You may want to get a pro in to let you know what your options are......After you cycle your dryer circuit breaker, or check the fuses.

My Dryer gets hot but it takes 2 hours to dry a load. My Vent goes from dryer up to the roof. I am sure it is clogged just dont know how to unclog it.


Go into atic and see what the vent is made of . Home depot sells 4 inch connectors whether hose or aluminum maybe 1 foot long . They may even sell a 4" brush connected to about a 10 foot cable ( a lot of parts houses do ) . Cut the tubing or hose and feed the cable down to someone who can pull the brush down . The top portion you will have to use injinuity to clean .

DISCONNECT THE EXHAUST FROM THE BACK OF THE DRYER AND TRY DRYING ONE LOAD OF LAUNDRY. IF THE DRYER WORKS O.K. WITH THE EXHAUST DISCONNECTED, YOU HAVE A RESTRICTION IN THE EXHAUST DUCT SOMEWHERE.
