SOURCE: dryer too hot

You will want to make sure the lint screen and vent are free and clear.
If the dryer is blowing out the vent outside the house as it should, then you have a thermostat problem.
If the operating thermostat does not open properly then the element will cycle by the hi-limit thermostat which will cause the dryer to heat more than normal.

SOURCE: Dryer Heats - Drum Turns - Clothes Don't Dry - Dryer Seems To Over Heat

Before ripping into the dryer, with the dryer running, check the vent outside. There should be a rather strong air flow. I'll bet you have little or maybe no air flow. Check behind the dryer to make sure you don't have squished flex duct. If you have flex pipe, try running the dryer for a few minutes with the dryer pulled out into the room to stretch the vent out, and check outside airflow again. Try to eliminate all or as much of the flex stuff as you can, replacing it with aluminum dryer vent pipe. (tape joints with foil duct tape) Clean out remaining dryer vent. (there are special brushes you can buy to clean out vents, but they really only work on ridgid pipe.)

SOURCE: coin operated speed queen gas dryer works some

Check the coils on the gas valve. Sounds like an intermittent one. Eric

I have an amana electric dryer. Changed out thermal fuse and cleaned out vent. Thermal fuse is blown again, but I noticed that it is not cycling. The dryer is very hot on the outside on top.

Wrinkles clothes terribly. Solutions.


Check your settings on your dryer. See if it's on a longer duration of time to dry. Dryers have different wording depending upon the make and model. If you're trying to dry smaller loads the heat settings s
does not have to be set for very long. Heavier, loads with thicker clothing will need to dry a little longer. When you take the clothes out of the washing machine, do you shake the clothes before putting them in the dryer? And do you use dryer sheets? Believe it or not, they're not only used to help make your clothe's smell fresh but they also help elevate static and a few wrinkles.

Speed queen electric dryer heats for about 8 minutes then heat goes off and does not come back on


The duct may be clear but the exhaust on the back of the dryer may be blocked. You have to take the back off the dryer and check where the blower is. Good luck.

It could be the vent chambers in the bottom of the machine from the front filter to the vent output to the rear exit vent ducting tubes....or the ducting itself. Flexable ducting, if you are using it, are well known to glog due to the multiple ringed wires inside. Flex is not recommended.

Also the gas line should be replaced with a gas flex line....it's the law here in CA.

My dryer runs but does not heat up or dry clothes. What could be the problem?


I have a Kenmore dryer and it runs but won't heat up and dry the clothes. I don't hear the ignition even turn over. Please help. I can't afford to buy a new dryer at this time.

Our LG dryer doesn't get completely hot until the clothes are mostly dry.


heated air enters the dryer at 140 degrees farenheit,
a portion of the heat energy raises the temperature of the water in the clothes.
When the clothes are cold and wet, the difference is large transfer is rapid
a lot of heat transfers to clothes and the exhaust air is damper and colder
As the clothes get warmer and dryer, proprtionally less heat is extracted from the incoming air, and the exhaust air is warmer and dryer.
When the clothes are dry, and at 140 degrees, the same temperature as the incoming air. no heat is removed from the incoming air
the dryer should then stop heating, draw unheated air through the drum and clothes to cool, and reduce wrinkling
then switch off

the dryer appears to be operating correctly
