The single most important issue with your dryer is a clogged exaust went or improper installation, when the vent is too long or it has too many bends. Improper venting or a clogged vent will give the following results:
Long drying times, clothes are hot at end of cycle, dryer is noisier than usual, clothes still hot and damp after cycle ends, premature failure of heating element, motor or bearings.
The perfect exaust according to installation manual vent supposed to be as short as possible (no more than 20 ft), and be as straight as possible with no more than 4 elbows.
Is there a code on dryer vent lines, how long, how many bends?
The International Mechanical Code article 504.6 stipulates the requirements for Domestic clothes dryer ducts. In brief, the maximum length of duct permitted is 25 ft. This maximum length should be reduced by 2.5 ft for each 45-degree bend and 5 ft. for each 90-degree bend. The duct should be a minimum nominal size of 4 inches in diameter and shall have a smooth interior finish.
Some foreign brand like LG dryer or Bosch dryer do not have an exaust vent and get rid of humidity and lint through a house drain system.
So whenever your dryer takes too long to dry a load of cloths, ussually more than 45 minutes, it means that your dryer needs service. We suggest you to check the exaust vent first, and only if it is clean call a repair company for service. If your exaust vent is too long and goes through an attic or crawling space you need to hire a local duct cleaning company that has special equpment. Keep in mind that vent needs to be cleaned to prevent fires and save energy.
Apart from exaust vent which is strictly speaking not a part of your dryer, the most common problems are: thermostat, thermal fuse, gas valve coils, igniter, flame sensor, elecrical heating element or other parts. Ussually you need a servcie manual to know how to repair your GE dryer, Maytag gas dryer, Whirlpool electric dryer, Frigidaire clothes dryer or Kenmore dryer, to properly diagnoise the problem and order a right part.
If your dryer is noisy or does not tumble at all the possible issues are: belt, rollers, support wheels, slides, pulley, motor, blower.
