Sounds like inadequate air flow through the machine. In order for the any dryer to function air is forced through the machine and outside. If the discharge is blocked or obstructed in any way the moist air will not be removed, and the clothes will not dry.

Disconnect dryer from wall and clean the wall outlet and and dryer discharge pipe.

Also, if you are trying to force air higher than 6 feet up the wall from a basement you will need a booster fan on the piping.

When using my dryer i notice that my windows are steamed up why is this?


What is the dryer doing? drying your clothes right? so the clothes are wet and as the dryer goes round and round the fan which is attached to the drum ( which holds the clothes) is pushing hot air into it. the vent in the front or the lint trap sucks hair lint debris from going up the exhaust chute. so "steamy" windows is when the dryer exhaust is not vented to take the moist warm air out of the house and raises the humidity level to condensate on the windows giving the steamy look. which is a great way to heat and bring humidity into the house during the dry winter months.

Check your dryer vent (probably outside) to be sure something or a kid hasn't flattened it, making it not vent moisture properly. Replace the vent or pull it back out so the damper door will open.

Clothes not drying


Clothes not drying? Thats it? Does the dryer turn on at all? Does it tumble the clothes but doesn't get warm? If it turns on and tumbles but takes a long time to dry, then your heating element is not working. There is a thermal fuse right before the heating element that will open up if the vent becomes clogged and its gets too hot. The thermal fuse is not resettable and will have to be replaced. If the thermal fuse is o.k. then your heating element could be burned out. These two items almost require an electrical meter to read continuity to check them. Make sure the dryer is unplugged before checking these items.

The dryer simply doesn't dry my clothes


Are the clothes warm after cycle? If not heater coils may be bad. Is lint trap cleaned out? Have you checked the vent that exhausts the air to the outside? make sure it is cleaned and kink free and the air is flowing freely. If you can get to the end of the vent outside you could try running the unit and check to see if you're getting good air flow outside from the vent.

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.

You have a classic air flow obstruction. To prove this phenomenon, remove the vent from the back of the dryer and try drying a load. If issue is resolved, then you must rectify the vent issue. Also, an internal air obstruction is less likely to be the cause, but not knowing how long this installation has been unmaintained, this too should be investigated.

If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.
