Question about Roper REX4634KQ Electric Dryer
I had a small load of clothes and put them into our dryer. it usually takes about 2 or 3 cycles to get them dry but it's been 6 cycles and our clothes are still soaking wet. I have no idea what to do, i'm a teenage girl so i have no idea about vents and all that. help plz!
I got it fixed. the hose needed stretched out, it wasn't putting out enough air. thank you though!

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!
