Re: does not dry as good as it used to
Condensor will almost certainly be blocked with lint to clean this you would have to take the whole unit off with the fan motor attached . Ther are 2 screws at the top and 3 screws at the bottom poss 1 screw in the midddle to the right. After reconnecting make sure it does'nt leak from the bottom of the condensor

Are we talking about clothes not drying ? If we are you need to check your lint duct for a restriction not just the hose behind the unit but all the way to the outside vent.turn on unit go outside to vent should feel a good flow of warm air.Over time these ducts get restricted and it happens slowly then one day you relize its taking a lot longer to dry than it used to.. To dry clothes properly you need more than just heat ,you need good air circulation to remove the moisture otherwise all you end up with is warm moist clothing......Hope this helps Good Luck
Check for a restriction in exhaust system,not just behind unit but all the way to outside vent,should feel warm decent airflow at outside vent.If not all you will end up with is warm moist clothes,You need good airflow to take away the moisture in the clothes not just heat.This issue can happen slowly over time and next thing you know its taking two or three times longer to dry even though when you open the door its hot inside.
Its going to be an issue with the wall vent of your house. The dryer is not venting the air at a good enough volume and that is why it is taking longer to dry. Sometime you may have to run a second cycle and I bet there is lint on your door gasket around the 6 o'clock positon.
The flex vent behind the dryer, the wall vent, and or the vent's outlet (roof or wall) outside the home needs to be cleaned to improve the air flow.
first clean the pip from the unit to the outsde vent. then inside your unit there are 2 felts that need to be cahnge, over time they go bad and the heat run out the drum and you can feel the hood is hot but it still not to good . it will save you electric bill when you fix it. :)
If you have'nt done it yet, my first suggestion would be to have the vent on the dryer (inside the dryer all the way to the fan chamber) and the dryer vent pipe to the outside thoroughly cleaned.
That is leading cause for dryers not drying completely.
Also, has the dryer always been a bit slow to dry cloths? If so, try leaving a window open the next time and see if it makes a difference. Some houses are sealed so tight, the dryer can't get enough air. A typical dryer will use up to 200 cu/ft of air per minute when drying. If there is not sufficient air, the cloths take longer to dry.
Good luck, let me know.
My dryer has been taking longer and longer to dry my clothes. Sometimes it takes multiple cycles before the clothes become dry. They seem to be getting warm, but are not drying as quickly as they use to.
