Why does my dryer get hot but not dry clothes?

Clogged air vents are a common cause for poor airflow in clothes dryer systems. One way to see if your dryer’s air vent is clogged is by turning on your dryer and going outside to feel the flow of air leaving the vent. If it’s slow and not very warm, your vent may be due for a good cleaning. Unplug the dryer.

What wrong when your dryer stops heating?

Another possible cause for a dryer not heating up could be attributed to a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer’s thermal fuse has blown, it is no longer of any use. If your dryer’s fuse is blown, you will have to replace it. Open up your dryer’s cabinet and locate its thermal fuse so that you can test it.

Can a broken dryer heating element be repaired?
