Regarding this, why does my dryer take two cycles to dry clothes?
A dryer's drying time is largely related to the flow of air through the machine and the condition of the venting hose. If air is impeded in its pathway out of the dryer, or if there is a blockage in the venting hose, it could reduce the rate at which clothes are drying in your dryer.
One may also ask, why does my dryer get hot but not dry clothes? If your clothes dryer feels really hot, but your clothes take forever to dry, the vent may be clogged. A clogged vent traps the excess hot air inside the dryer's drum. But the low circulation of air keeps clothes from getting dry.
Secondly, what causes a dryer to take too long to dry?
Dryer takes too long. If the vent is clogged or partially clogged, it will restrict the airflow through the dryer, substantially increasing the drying time. To ensure proper dryer performance, you should clean your dryer's venting system at least once per year.
Do gas dryers take longer to dry?
I changed the gas line going to the dryer and it will produce heat, but takes 30-40 minutes longer than normal to dry a load of clothes. It will dry but takes about 1 1/2 to 2 hours to dry a regular load of clothes.
