Is the dryer heating at all? have u tried it disconnected from the vent to see if it makes any difference, if disconnected and it still doesnt work correctly u'll probably need a new thermostat it also depends on if it gas or electric heating elements in electric are either good or bad no in between its just a coil

My DWJR-ELE-2406026-FM54 dryer is getting hot but not drying the clothes. Even after 3 cycles they are still damp, not warm at all. What would that be?

Ventilation, check the vent hose and the vent pipe and the damper outside for restrictions probably clogged with lint. If the moisture can’t escape the clothes won’t dry.

Takes several cycles to dry

You may have a clogged air vent, check that the air vent hose is not smashed, if it is not smashed, have your dryer vent cleaned professionally, all the way from where the dryer connects to the wall to where the vent leaves the home,
Recheck the dryer operation, dryer vents should be cleaned every other year for optimum performance

My Maytag Bravos XL electric dryer doesn't dry clothes. When I try to run a second cycle it seems like it's too hot and won't start again until it cools.

Make sure your vent pipe is clean and filter is clean. Air flow is number one reason for dryer failure, Check the whole inside of the dryer for lint build up and in the exhaust pipe. The dryer has to vent the humid air in order to dry the clothing. If it can't do that, it overheats and also the humidity stays inside the dryer.

Dryer has Heat but NO AIR

Many of these have a belt driven blower wheel, could be a broken belt or it came off, There was also a bulliten out on several models where the blower wheel would come loose from the drive shaft, the fix was to re attach using a medium body thread lock compound so it would not unscrew again.

cleaning the vent is always a good thing, But check the outside vent cover, some of them have a flap inside that sometimes get clogged with lint especially if damp, The only way for moisture to leave a dryer is to have a clear shot for the heat to escape , thats all done through the vent, if it has moisture in it, something is blocking its escape

Clothes still damp after 2 cycles

Many times one pole of a double pole breaker may trip allowing the dryer to operate but with no heat. Go to the electric panel and reset the circuit breaker for the dryer. Also check to insure there is air flow at the vent a clogged vent willl prevent clothes from drying

Takes 3 cycles to dry clothes even on towel cycle

If the clothes are hot when they come out but moist or damp it mean the moisture is not getting vented, Check your vent pipe for blockages or leaks.

Dryer turns on and rotates. However, does not dry clothes completely. Cycle signals wet,then damp,cool down and finally dry,but clothes are still wet. Sometimes the dryer works fine and completely dries...

This problem may be the result of a dirty lent filter which if clogged will short cycle the dryer and the clothes will still be damp when done. Also a dirty exhaust pipe (usally 4") will prevent the clothes from drying correctly. Make sure that the air is leaving the machine. To do this you have to go outside when the machine is running.

Sounds like a venting problem at the house pipe.
Make sure the house venting pipe is completely clean and vent hood just outside is free of any blockages.
If all that is cleaned I would check all working thermostats and high limit thermostat as well.
GOOD LUCK!
