Hi my dryer gets hot but won't dry clothes. After an hour they are still wet. I also am gettin a slight burnt smell. How do I know if it is my element or thermostat or etc.
ANSWER Hello Misty. It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly.
