Tripp,

Try this first,

Disconnect the vent from the dryer and dry a load of wash, see if there is an improvement in the time required.

If there is, you'd need to check and clean the exhaust venting, from the dryer to the vent hood (outside).

If there is no improvement, we'll have to get into the circuits and components of the heat cycle,you'll need to get your hands on a multi meter to do the tests.

Part number: AP3873826

Please let us know what you find,

Thanks,

thanks for answering. I checked the vent and its blowing pretty good out of the back of the dryer. I did feel as if the air was warm but not very hot.

Tripp,

It's great that you have a meter, you'll find it a lot easier and less expensive in the long run.

But,

First, get us a model number, so we can direct you properly, efficiently , accurately.

Thanks,
