The dryer will stop after a few minutes. Sometimes it will start back automatically. Now after several tries the clothes are still not drying properly.
Answer Hello Robert. If the unit is heating, you will need to look for a venting issue. 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.
My wife was using the dryer and it seemed to not get hot and the timer did not move. After awhile the heater did get hot but clothes did not dry in the normal amount of time i.e. it took 90 minutes instead of 50 minutes. I am inclined to believe one of the thermostats is going out but not sure which one it is. Any clue
The first thing that you will want to check would be the venting from the blower wheel to the outside of your home. This is the most common cause for longer drying times. If the venting check ok then the cycling thermostat would be the most likely cause for the longer drying times. The part number for the thermostat is WE4M216.
