Did you check the trap door on the outside of the house where the vent goes outside. If the door is stuck or the end of the vent is blocked you will get excessive dry time like you are having. Also possibly a thermostat inside starting to go bad and sticking.
Since you say it happened gradually seems like it's not the heating element. If that's functioning properly you should see the orange glow inside the dryer when running. If your dryer does not have a glass door you can keep the dryer running by holding the button in. Look on the door, at some point you should see something that makes contact and pushes a switch on the frame. You can trick it by manually closing the switch. Be careful. I would suspect the trouble is a clogged lint exhaust. Over time this will fill with lint preventing the moist air to escape. This is how the dryer works. The hot wet air in the drum needs to vent outside to dry the clothes. When this becomes clogged you have nowhere for the moisture to go. So it stays in the drum and runs and runs without drying clothes. Also make sure you clean out the lint trap after each use. Clean the entire vent path. Also make sure you are venting outside. If not, you are just recirculating wet moist air back into the dryer. When working properly, you should feel a good flow of warm wet air at the outside vent. If not there is still a clog. Good luck.
Hello there: Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook
the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer
exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent
unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the
dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent
hose. - If the vent doesn't make a difference,
then check the blower wheel for excessive lint build up, check that
there isn't anything stuck to the air intake baffle inside the drum,
(i.e. the screen on the back wall of the dryer when looking into the
drum). Check the lint filter chute for blockage. Check that the heating
element isn't shorted
to ground. Check the exhaust temperature of the dryer. A meat
thermometer can be used for this. It should cycle approx
between 110 degrees and 150 degrees. Check that the drum seals are not
Seems to be a problem with the bas valves....you shouldve seen them in front of ignitor...will show similar signs of ignitor. part#306106 AND 306105. come off easily with a few screws and just slide over valve assembly.
do you have clothes on top of dryer? if so, i'll say it again never ever stack clothes or anything on top of it. Things on it insulate it and will overheat the machine. Yes it has a overheat linit switch but to get to it you have to take it apart and pull the drum out depending on the style of heat element you have. Some are in the back of drum and others are in a tube on the floor of the unit inside. If yours is behind the drum then drum needs to come out to check for the problem
