Hi,

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

Check the vent pie for debris ,, the vent allows moisture to escape the drum,, if it can't the clothes will get hot or warm showing the machine is heating up it just can't vent that moisture out .

SOURCE: the dryer does not stay hot

You probably have a restriction in the exhaust somewhere. Check vent to outside , if that is okay remove hose from back of the machine and look for lint buildup in hose and machine. More than likely the problem is in the duct in the front panel where the lint screen goes. To check and clean this you will have to remove the front panel.

SOURCE: Dryer not heating as it should. Gets warm, but takes several cycles to dry clothes

Could be 2 things... either your heat source is out of repair or your vent is blocked. Since you say it only gets warm I'll assume the problem is with the gas coils inside the unit. These parts are replaceable

Why do clothes take a long time to dry even if dryer is heating?


One basic reason is your washer could NOT be spinning most of the water out, therefore your clothes are wetter than they should be, thus taking longer to dry:-)

I have a GE dryer that won't dry our clothes. It heats up, but water is all over the inside door and the lint that comes out of the hose in the back is wet! The outside of the dryer (the top in...


It really sounds like your washing machine is not spinning the clothes out enough. Have they been wetter than usual lately? The dryer could just be struggling to keep up with the heavier / wetter load as there is no reason for it to create moisture on it's own.

Dryer gets hot but takes along time to dry


Make sure the lint filter is clean. If it is make sure the hoses leading from the dryer to the outside are not clogged. It sounds like it is not getting prober airflow through the tub.

My dryer runs and gets hot but cloths don't dry.


Your problem may be attributed to a clogged exhaust system (e.g.: clogged inside the dryer's vent, flexible vent behind dryer clogged and/or clogged inside wall, etc.).

Wont dry clothes is hot inside dryer but takes 3 or 4 cycles to dry load


You have an air flow problem. This usually happens when the exhaust pipe/vent gets clogged. Clean/inspect the vent outlet, the pipe, the inlet, and the filter/lint catcher area.

Improper air flow prevents the moisture from being vented out of the dryer.

Kenmore dryer hot, but doesn't dry clothes...also spueaks


Sam,
A dryer function is really simple:
Gets hot, boils left over moisture from clothes and it needs to blow it out.
If it is getting hot and it is turning - Then your problem is in the exhaust system.
Check all pipes that carry moisture/steam/vapor out of your machine and make sure is free of any restrictions.
Good Luck

Dryer wont dry clothes


Vents can fool you sometimes they seem to be ok but still cause problems. Try running with vent unhooked from machine one time and see if it works ok.
Check for leaks air leaks around the door or anywhere else.

Maytag dryer wont shut off


Is it an auto sensor shut off? If so, it may be that your hose is plugged and so actually takes that long to dry the clothes.
