Question about Ariston Technologies AWD120 13 lb. Washer / Dryer Combo
Clothes hot but still damp
Be sure you know, and anyone else who reads this with the same problem, that a dryer that dries slow may not always be the dryer. Be sure before you call a service man, always try to do a couple of things first. The number one thing that will cause a dryer to heat slow is poor airflow. First, be sure that your lint screen is completely clean. Next, the number one reason we find is a blocked or restricted vent tube. Be sure you check the entire tube, inside and out. Check the outside duct to be sure a bird or rodent hasn't built a nest in there. The easiest way to clear a vent tube, is to remove the tube from the back of the dryer, and place a leaf blower in the tube and blow her out. Also, be sure the tube when you put it back on the dryer is'nt crimped or twisted in a way to stop airflow. Give these tricks a try, if these dont work, you may have a problem in the dryer.

Sounds like you have a ventalation problem. The clothes heat up, but without airflow, the moisture remains. First check the hose from the back of the dryer to the wall. Is it plugged, kinked, or restricted? No? Turn your dryer on and remove the hose. Do you feel pressure coming from the back of the unit? No? You need to take it apart and clean the internal airway. If you do feel pressure, reconnect it to the wall and start your dryer. Walk to the outside of the house. Do you feel a fair amount of air coming out? No? There are companies that will clean your vent in the phone book. There are also vent cleaning brushes you can buy at hardware and appliance part stores.
