Why Dryers Stop Drying Clothes Completely/Partially

Prior calling a technician to service your faulty dryer, try to perform our guide and check if there is an actual issue with the dryer

Dryer Load size: Too less or too Much

When the Dryer is overloaded there is not enough airflow circulation through the cloth which will lead in longer drying times and multiple cycles to dry

The best solution will be to reduce the amount of cloth per load.

Some dryer will require certain amount of cloths to start heating that’s because moisture sensor have to be activated during the cycle and it will be activate if there is moisture from the Cloth.


Lint Screen filter

Sometime dryer will not dry your load but will get too hot, in that case you might have a blocked lint screen filter or a blocked Vent,

Direct Appliance Repair recommends to clean the lint screen filter after every single use, it will create proper airflow in the dryer and will extend the life of the parts and the machine itself, it will also dry your cloth better

One other benefit of cleaning the lint screen filter is fire prevention, Dryers are appliances that work in one of 2 ways gas heating/element heating . if there is too much lint in the dryer it can increase the chances of catching up fire   


Clogged Vent

One of many reason for a dryer to dry poorly is when the vent has obstruction in it,

The vent connects the Dryer to the outside of the house where the moisture should go

They get clogged and thus blocks and traps the airflow, May increase chances of catching fire and reduce dryers performance and efficiency.

Issues with the washing machine

In Some Cases there might be issue with your washing machine spin which will leave your cloth soak in water due to washer poor spin cycle or unbalanced load etc. Dryers cannot dry dripping wet cloth therefore make sure that the cloth are just moisture before throwing them into the dryer
