Takes too long to dry
i have replaced the cycling thermostats and continue to have issues with it taking too long to dry clothes. Would it help to replace the thermo fuse?
Double check the model number, doesn't come up. If dryer is heating, thermal fuse is ok.
The most common cause of long dry times is a partially plugged vent system.
Unplug the unit and disconnect it from the vent system.
Now try a run.
If it now dries OK odds are the vent system needs checking/cleaning.
Be sure to check that the louvers on the outside of the house open correctly.
If you do not want any lint in the house.
Take a pair of pantyhose.
Put one leg into the other and then attach this to the dryer's vent.
Leave enough room so the pantyhose can balloon out like a windsock.
Both the above will let you check the temperature and the air flow.
Note: The above is not recommended for gas dryers due to carbon monoxide concerns.
