Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

Here is the rest of this tip about Dryer Maintenance

I have a Gas Dryer that will not start, I have cleaned the lint filter and all of the area around the filter, the machine still will not start and the lint filter light luminates when you push the start...


Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting. Here is a website that should help:

Dryer works but no heat


If a gas dryer, make sure pilot light is lit or wire to electronic ignition is connected. Make sure the area around thr ignitor is clear of dust and the filter and exhaust are clean.
If electric, check your home fuses or circuit breakers and make sure your plugged into the proper voltage and grounded outlet. Set on highest temp setting and run for a few minutes and check if your getting any heat.
Some newer dryers have a built in sensor that will only turn heat on if it detects moisture, so you may need to through in a wet towel.

My kenmore 80 series dryer doesn't dry. What should I check? It runs fine and heats up but the clothes are still wet


Whnn a dryer is hot but does not dry the clothes it is a very good indication that the dryer vent, ducting and or internal air passages are clogged with lint build up. Also if you use dryer sheets the lint filter itself can appear clean but actually be clogged up with the softener material from the dryer sheets.

Clean all of the air ducts and passages with a crevice tool. Pull the lint filter and clean UNDER and around the lint filter. Make sure to go outside and remove any lint build up from the vent flapper. Pull the lint filter and wash it with white wine vinegar and a soft brush on BOTH sides. For some of the hard to reach areas a folded un half coat hanger works great for losening lint in those areas. DO NOT use anything sharp.

The dryer needs loads of air moving through the ducts to work properly. You may feel air movement but it should be a very high volume air flow. After a good thorough cleaning your dryer should return to normal operation.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Roper dryer model REX 3514RQ1. dryer works for/then quits. help!!


I have seen this before. You have got to remove the housing for the filter. Blow out the area around the blower and get the junk out of there. Wash out the filter housing.

Roper Gas Dryer


You may have gotten water in your igniter or pilot light. Put a hair dryer to the areas where the pilot and igniter and burner is so that it can be fried out.

Scraping noise with burning smell


You quite possibly have something like a penny or a paper clip stuck at the heat duct. ***First-shut off the electric to the dryer***. From behind the dryer, remove the heat tunnel and clean it out. You will be surprised how much lint gets past the filter. It's an easy repair, just a few screws. While you're back there, look around for any buildup in other areas.

Bosch WTL5400 Condensation Dryer


We continuously had a similar problem with signals forever coming on after just a few dryer loads. The problem was corrected when we took the back off of the dryer and cleaned the recirculating fan and removed a rubber glove that somehow came through the system and blocked the air flow at the heating element. Low air flow is the same as plugged filter and apparently the computer in our German-made Bosch dryer simply says that. We cleaned the area well, removed all traces of the glove and restored the dryer to operation. We have not had the filter problem since. We routinely clean the heater area at the back of the dryer to maintain our sanity. And we now dry our clothes. Bosch never responded to my query.
