Dryer heats up but shuts off heat after ten min. the top gets very hot
Answer Hello Freddie,
You will want to check for clogged venting as this is the most common reason for the unit to overheat. If this checks ok then you will want to check the thermostats to make sure that they are good.
Dryer shut off after 2 min. on normal and runs fine on time dry.
Answer Hello Larry. 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.
Hi our dryer heats up, gets hot, but not hot enough dry a load of towels. Most items have to be put through two 45 minute dry cycles. No lint in dryer vent what could be the cause?
Answer Hello Heidi. If the unit is heating, it is a venting issue. Check the blower wheel and inside the unit to see if it is clogged with lint. Also, run the unit with vent hose unhooked and see if it drys the clothes properly.
