I have a dryer that does not fully dry a load in one cycle. I have checked and the exhaust line is totally clear. I am not sure can it be a limit switch problem or maybe can the element be getting weak as it is been in use for about 7 years I have used my meter to run a test to see what temp I get when it is drying a load. Seems to cycle in a range from 130 high to a low of 119 but at the end of a load some clothes are still damp at the end of a full cycle in the auto sense mode. I also have 2 other machines in 2 other apartments that have the same problem It seems that all 3 are doing the same thing and all vents have been cleaned multiple times so I am sure that it is not an air flow problem.
ANSWER Hello Randy. Check the blower wheel in the units. Also, check the voltage coming to the dryer. The heaters do not get weak over time. 99% of the time, it is an air flow issue. A way to test is to run without the vent hooked up and see if it dries. If so, vent is the issue. Also, check the temp switch, it could be stuck on low heat.
