The moisture may not be getting out of the dryer quickly enough.
LONG dry time is an indication of a clogged or restricted exhaust. Inspect the hose in the back to make sure it is not crushed or kinked. Clogged or restricted exhaust is the primary cause of failure in all residential dryers. Blowing the the system with a shop vac is only a temporary solution. The system needs to be cleaned (2 to 3 times per year) with a rotary brush to scrape lint collecting from the sides of the pipe. Also consider replacing flexible plastic or foil pipe with rigid metal type. Dryer will vent 30% to 40% better. If condition persists for too long, a high limit fuse mounted on the heater will open causing the heater to no longer operate.
Remember..the purpose of the dryer vent is to get rid of moisture. If the moisture can't be removed quickly....the clothes will take a long time to dry, no matter how much heat there is....
Cleaning kits are available at most home improvement centers. or at this website:

SOURCE: Can I test dryer timer to see if its any good?

Check if you have 220 at the terminal block. The power is 220 hot to hot and 110 for each leg to ground. Generaly the has two speeds (220 regular and 110 for gentle). There are two heating elements that are ciontrolled the same way. The gentle cycle uses one leg and the heat ing elements use the other. The answer is how the dryer is set. Knowing that and using elmination you will find the problem in the controlls because the heating elements work or thew are open. The motor has two windings or it works or it works or has an open. I could not find a schematic but you may see it on the back oe a piece of paper in the controlls. I have faith in you finding the problem very quickly from what you said and what I told you. Good luck. Don't forget to cycle (turn them off and on) your breakers to make sure one is not intermittent.

Replaced timer with part #8299779 in Kenmore Dryer. The timer would run by the off and keep on running. The dryer got really hot to. The new timer did not cur the problem.

Unplug the dryer. Access the 'Start' switch and its terminals. Check the 'Start' switch with an ohmmeter. It is probably fused together internally. It should read zero ohms when not activated.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

I have a kenmore dryer 66702690. It quit working

unplug it,pull it out and take off the vent line and remove the back wall,you'll see the thermal fuse to the right of the duct that your lint filter slides into,part 3392519,pull one of the wires off and read it out with meter,if it's bad do a clean out on the dryer,remove the duct that the filter slides into and clean it out,blow out the vent line,i use a leaf blower to do this if it's a long run from the dryer to the outside flapper,don't forget to take out the two screws on top where the filter is to remove the duct,put it back together and remove the front and clean out the inside of dryer,do the clean out once a year for maintenance,if the fuse is good make sure you're getting 240 volts to dryer and power to motor,could have a bad timer?also check the t stats on the heater box,hope this helps

Dryer does not run but you ken hear timer running

The thermal fuse located on the exhaust housing has gone bad. This is a white plastic part that has 2 wires coming off of it. Hope this helps. Very affordable repair. Don't forget to unplug dryer while working on this.

Dryer Won't Start

Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top right of door opening. If it is not there you will need new door switch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and does not click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Door switch part number 3406109
Thermal fuse part number 3392519

GE Profile dpsr473ewoww timer doesn't work and heat level is low

We should address the heat problem first. If your dryer complaint is "heat seems low" or taking "too long to heat", this is commonly confused for other problems. When in fact, you may really have a "ventillation problem". Do you feel (with hand) alot of hot air pressure coming out the back of the dryer or house vent-line (for dryer)?

I would disconnect and clean the dryer exhaust vent/duct (at wall and machine). Then, while leaving the vent-line disconnected temporaily, test and run your dryer. You may see an signficant improvement.

Does it heat up better?
Do you feel alot of hot air and pressure coming out the back of the dryer?
When connected; do you feel alot of hot air pressure coming out of your house dryer vent?

I am sorry to hear this, my name is Marc White, i am self employed and it seems as though you have a bad timer, bad timer will cause the timer not to go to the off position and blow your fuse......change your timer..
