The most common problem would be a restricted vent. Turn the dryer on and go outside to the vent outlet. Air flow must be fairly strong. If not, clean vent piping and eliminate as much flex ducting as possible. You want the shortest, straightest, smoothest (inside) vent possible. If air flow is strong, clean the two silver bars inside the dryer drum near the lint filter with some rubbing alcohol. If you still have problems, send an "ask me" note with as much info about your symtoms and what you have tried so far. ie: is there any heating? are the clothes unusually wet before going into dryer? has this situation come on slowley or suddenly? are your clothes drying very slowley, or not at all? does the dryer run for hours, or does it stop?

My maytag gas dryer work on dry cloth and stays hot but as soon as i put wet cloths in it they wont dry ?


My dryers timer wouldn't work correctly and the clothes were taking forever to dry. I decided to check the vent. My advice....Always check your dryer vent before spending any money on unnecessary parts or service calls. This Nest was pulled out of my vent with my shop vac sucking out and my house vac blowing out from inside. It finally broke free and now my dryer works like new.

My creda mode tcr2 isnt drying my clothes anymore


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.

Dryer gets hot but wont dry clothes


Do you know if the dryer vent is free of obstructions?Check outside where the dryer vents outside ,and see if the air is weak or flowing freely.If it is not clogged the air should be pretty strong from the vent outside.If it has blockage it will definitly take longer to dry your clothes.

Kenmore dryer is not drying


The following link will give you some advice on dryer heat problems:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

Pay particular attention to the paragraph that discusses dryer ventilation. Most dryer heat related problems are caused by poor air flow due to clogged ventilation. Follow the advice given to isolate whether you may have a ventilation problem internal or external to your dryer first. You may not have anything wrong but some lint accumulation. If left in a clogged condition, the dryer heating circuits will eventually overheat to failure.

If you verify everything and still have long dry times, make sure you are separating items correctly. I'm not trying to insult your intelligence, but some people simply do not know. For example: dry towels and jeans separately from other articles of clothing because they take longer. And. overloading a dryer will make it dry less efficient.

I hope you find this information helpful. Please let me know if you still require assistance.

Not drying


I know you cleaned the lint vent but your vent hose is clogged or damaged and there is no air exchange thru the dryer Air can only hold 100% humidity. You could dry your clothes for 10 hours but the air in the dryer is saturated with water and can not hold anymore so your clothes wont dry. Check behind your dryer and Ill bet the vent line is damaged. The problem is the air is not getting out of the dryer. Check the flapper at the end of the vent line. With the dryer running go to the end of the vent hose and there will be no air coming thru.
