Dryer leaving clothes wet? Check these things first!

The main idea of a dryer is to circulate warm air through wet clothes to evaporate moisture from them. This sounds really simple, but there are many implications. This means that all dryers have to have a blower to move air and a heat source to warm the air, and that airflow is very important. It also means that all dryers must have a way to toss the clothes around a bit, because air won’t circulate through them if they’re just laying there in a big wet lump. This is done, of course, by “tumbling” them in a big round drum.
The main differences between different makes and models are the way the drum is supported, the layout of any electric heaters, and airflow.
All dryers have a drive motor which turns the drum through a belt. In most dryers, the motor also turns a blower fan connected directly to the motor shaft; in a few notable exceptions, the fan is belted off the drive motor, too.
Not Drying At All:
  • No power to the dryer
    Make sure there’s power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the washer, if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.
