Are you cleaning the lint filter after each load?

(Pull it out of the top of the dryer or inside the door and clean it )

Can you go outside and find the vent where the dryer exhausts air? when the dryer is running with clothes in it, is there air coming out? If not, It is plugged.

Whether you think it is pluggged or not,, go back inside and pull the dryer out from the wall carefully. If it is a stack job, get help!
Now the 6" diameter rippled tubing that connects from your dryer to the wall can be removed by loosening the clamp on the dryer with a screw dryer. I think you should carefully unplug the dryer before you start this!
Loosen the clamp and pull the hose off the back of the dryer. It may be full of lint and all sorts of interesting things which you need to clean out. Or you may find that it is not even connected. When you are satisfied that it is clean. place it back on the dryer (MAKE SURE it is not twisted) and tightened the clamp back on very well with the screwdriver. When you push the dryer back in place be careful not to push it in so far that you collapse this vent hose or twist it.

That's the dryer. NOW, when you remove the clothes from the washer do they feel still full of water? Is the washer spinning well and removing most of the water? If it is not this can cause your dryer to take forever to dry the clothes and it can also cause your dryer to overheat.


Whether you have a pile up of lint in your lint filter and hose or the washer is not spinning correctly, both are a huge fire hazard for the dryer, so TAKE CARE of this NOW. Please. and Good luck!

Permanent press cycle keeps shutting down and doesn't finish.


Hello. I don't know what make/model dryer you have but the problem could be with load size and type of clothing. The sensor bars are usually located on the front of the lint screen housing(you have to put your head in the dryer and look back to see them--they are 2 metal strips, approx 1/2" apart and at least several inches long). The damp/wet clothing keeps shorting across the strips, telling the main board to keep the dryer running. If there isn't enough of a load, the dryer may think that the clothes are dry prematurely and count down too quickly. The sensor bar technology *is not* an exact science--it works best on large loads with like clothing. For smaller loads, use time dry and adjust the temp setting accordingly. I hope I helped you.

Hello,

If this is a vented dryer then check all the filters in the machine also check the vent hose is not blocked on the machine in the hose itself and where the pipe goes out of the wall.If it is a condenser dryer the filters need checking and the condenser box in the base of the machine.If none of this is successful then it could be a fault with the heater or the programmer.

Hope this helped.

sounds like an air flow problem meaning the dryer is not exhausting the hot air. Best way to check is to disconnect exhaust tubing from dryer and run a cycle. If the clothes dry normally the vent to the outside is plugged. Hope this helps

My dryer will heat up, but it is not drying the clothes during the cycle. It takes 2 or 2.5 cycles to dry the load


if you have the top model lint filter take it out put your hand in and see if you have good air sucken,if not you have a clogg somewhere in the dryer hose or wall vent,most of the time it is the wall vent, if the hot wet air can't get out the cloths will take forever to dry-mike

My daughter in put a load of wet clothes (not completely finished spin cycle). Now dryer doesn't heat the clothes but seems to have all other functions.


Try running the dryer empty to see if the elements are heating. With the weight of wet clothes it is possible to trip the overloads.

Intelli sensor doesn't read that clothes are wet,just damp.does not get clothes dry in intelli cycle.does get them dry in timed cycle.already replaced sensor.


do you stack clothes on top? If so take them off and try another load and never ever put anything on top. It insulates it and makes the dryer not run right. Good Luck
