Recently my dryer wont actually dry clothes no heat but sometimes will work ive taken it apart and cleaned out 8 years of dust, dirt and lint. I was told to look for a small round plastic piece with 2 wires coming off it, thats a high temp control sensor. I don't see this . The burner lights then goes out, and everything else seems to be working. I'm lost for my next move , please help

I had this same problem 3 weeks ago, and here is what I found.
The dryer was so clogged with lint it could not dry the clothes. I had to take the whole machine apart and clean all the lint out. I found the felt around the drum was worn out, and that was allowing the lint to go everywhere it shouldn't. With the felt replaced and the lint gone, it worked well.
Be blessed.

Clothes not getting dry


sounds like perhaps you are losing your heating element...could be electronic, but it's most likely the actual element needs to be replaced...

Dryer gets hot on the outside of machine


Clean the lint out of the pipe that goes out side, also the grate on the outside, If that dosent do it take the back off and see where the lint comes out, take that apart and clean the lint out. I have had this problem before and just recently. The dryer has a saftey fuse, when the dryer gets too hot to shut off, thats why your clothes are not drying. 1st try the pipe that goes outside including the end(outside).

My dryer is taking longer to dry clothes. I have cleaned the lint from all exhaust and the clothes are not to wet coming from the dryer. Could it be heat element?


Hi,

If your
dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

motor is going bad,when was the last time you cleaned the dryer?alot of people don't know that the dryer has to be taken apart and cleaned,with my customers if they have a gas dryer i clean it out once a year because there's an open flame in there,with electric once every two years,i take apart the dryer,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the cabinet,i use a shop vac that blows on one end and vacs on the other end,i blow off the motor and the heater tube,you'd be surprised how much lint is in the motor,if the vent line is long i use a leaf blower and blow out the vent line or if they have hard pipe i have brushes that connect to your drill and clean out the line with that,on some it looks like a blanket is on the motor,that's how thick the lint gets and you'll see lint stuck on the rear of the drum,that's from the oil coming out of the motor from running to hot from the lint and spraying on the drum and then lint sticks to that.motors are easy to change out,next time send the model number and the make and i can look it up for you,if you clean the dryer you don't have to worry about a fire,your dryer will run like it should without damaging any parts and you'll save on energy because your clothes will dry on time instead of three hours to dry them,also if you use the auto settings the more or less on the timer the machine will shut off when the clothes are dry so you don't have to add more time if the clothes are still damp,the heat shuts off and then the timer advances,when the heat comes on the timer stops,it does this until the clothes are dry so you only have to set it once.let me know how you make out,if you need a hand getting the dryer apart let me know,always unplug the dryer before you work on it

I have a kenmore 76712. clothes only gets warm but does not dry even after 3 cycles. I have looked in the back cabinet and i see the ignition working and lighting up. But it goes off after about 5-8 secs...


The unit must be taken apart to clean. Also the duct work (vent tube) will have to come completely apart for those tubes will be solid full of lint as well. That is why the dryer is not drying your clothes. I guarantee you will find a handfull of lint for every foot of tubing you have. OInce cleaned the dryer will operate like new again

If you are experiencing longer dry times and poor drying efficiency, the following link can give you some things to check before assuming you have a malfunction with the dryer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

The number one cause of dryer heat related problems is poor exhaust ventilation. If the dryer can't breathe it will not dry efficiently and will cause the heating circuits to overheat to the point of failure. The dryer will actually seem hotter as the heating circuits begin to overheat. This can also become a fire hazard if not resolved. Read through the link provided and review some of the potential causes. Hopefully, this may save you a service call.

If you still have problems, please post back and let me know and I can tell you how to troubleshoot your heating circuits and/or assist you with identifying parts. Since your dryer IS heating (but poorly), I don't think you need parts. Just a good cleaning. I hope this helps you.

FRIDGIDAIRE GAS DRYER MODEL # GLGR642AS2 IS NOT DRYING CLOTHES BUT GAS IS IGNITING. THANK YOU. DON


Hi Don,
So let me get this straight, you are getting heat from the gas burner and the drum rotates but your clothes remain wet? You can check a few basic things to identify where the problem lies.. First off, have you checked the lint trap and cleaned it? Secondly, have you checked your vent system ( meaning : are you sure it is not clogged anywhere in the duct or at the end where it exits outside? If that's OK.. when your system is drying clothes.. do you get hot air flow at the end of that duct? If not, your blower may not be working ..You need to move that hot air out of the tub for the system to dry. Heat, Motion to move clothes, air flow from the blower and an unimpeded path via the vent duct to outside.. Hope one of these things to check gets you going. Regards...
