Taking long time to dry

Hi, my problem is that the starting this week, the clothes are taking twice as long to dry. I've cleaned all lint out of the exhaust hose. The blower seems to be running fine and the discharge is hot, but the clothes are now taking two full cycles to dry. If you could send the manual, I'd be thankful. I'd like to check to ensure no lint caught in or around the blower, but don't know how to take cover off.

email is Alan_Lewis@verizon.net

Thanks!
Alan

It is taking far too long to dry, this has only recently started? what could be the problem?


Does it get hot? If it does, then the problem is reduced air flow, caused by a lint filter that hasn't been cleaned, masses of fluff in the exhaust pipe (usually on bends), or the external vent not opening properly. Birds can also nest in the vent pipe if the vent isn't protected or is broken.

If it doesn't get hot, you need a new element. Some dryers have two elements if the dryer has a high and low setting. just one element can fail.

Dryer won't dry have to do it twice


first check to make sure the lint basket is clean and free of lint, then lift it out and if possible reach in with a vaccum extention or tongs and see if there is a build up of lint in the front of the dryer, below the screen. that maybe blocking the flow of air, I cleaned one out for a friend, he had just started renting the apartment and the washer and dryer were there, but I do not think anyone ever checked below the basket. I am sure they were one dryer load away from a fire and he was living in a older row house. I ended up taking a have a grocery bag full of lint out of the front of the dryer, it was just packed in from years of use. but if there is not good air flow through the dryer the cloths will not dry.
2. also you can put a dry towel in the load and it will pull moisture out of the really wet clothes and they should dry quicker.
3. make sure your washer is working right and the spinner is taking all the extra water out, if they come out of the washer wetter it will take longer to dry them.
hope some of this helps K

GE Dryer DBSR453Eb2WW takes twice as long to dry clothes


A clogged or partially clogged vent will reduce the air flow through the dryer and greatly increase the drying time. I assume you checked the drying time again after you cleaned the vents. Have you also checked that the lint trap is clean? Make sure no lint has found it's way around the lint trap and has jammed the intake.

I would be very suspicious of the 240 v breaker double breaker feeding the dyrer; maybe the dryer is only running on 120 vac instead of the full 240vac. The motor would be getting full power, but the heating element would only be getting half power.

My gas dryer recently started taking about twice the time to dry as before. Any suggestions?


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.

Taking long time to dry


An innovative dryer, the General Electric Profile Harmony DPGT750GCW(gas) / DPGT750ECW (electric) has the ability to communicate with its matching washer via the manufacturer's CleanSpeak system. More specifically, this Profile dryer is wired to the Harmony washer, allowing electronic communication between the two. If you're wondering what these two have to talk about, the answer is simple. They talk about your laundry and how to dry it.

CleanSpeak works by transferring information about a wash load to the dryer and setting it automatically so you don't have to make any. Machine-determined optimal settings for each load are selected by the information about each load size and type. Your job is simply to place the wet laundry in the dryer and press start.

That is where the problem begins, when you interrupt the drying cycle. The machine is then rest to small load dependent on when the interruption occurred. The dryer computes the duration of drying time again the wash load. Each time you load the washer, the dryer is computed to using the shorted time. Thus, we have double cycle.

you will need to override the automated settings and enter your own preferences. Doing so can be a bit complicated, as this machine has lots of intricate, detailed controls that may take some getting used to. In fact, we suspect that's why this dryer is designed to be set by the washer. Having individuals set it, with all its options, takes some patience. The good news is that once you have manually set cycles you have found to use often or like, you can enter them in the memory, allowing the machines to set them your way in the future.

Option is to unplug the machine and wait minimum of 2 minutes and plug in the machine, hit power on.
I would recommend unplugging both machines, and rest both to factory default.
good luck
