A:

I understand your concern and based on your symptom and details you likely have a partial blockage/restriction in the venting system providing your washer is spinning correctly. Note: One hour is not an abnormal amount of time to dry clothes.

Try this: Disconnect the vent hose from the back of the dryer and dry one normal load using the "TIME" dry cycle and not the "Automatic" dry cycle. If the clothes dry in normal amount of time (1HR) or less then this test would confirm a venting issue. Note: Reconnect the vent hose after drying the one load. Do not leave it disconnected or it will fill the room with moisture and lint.

You can also measure the temperature of the air blowing out the rear exhaust to see if it's heating correctly. When the temperature switch is set to High Heat the air temperature blowing out the exhaust should average around 150 degrees. If the temperature averages 150 degrees then the most likely cause of long dry times is the venting system.

Another thing that can cause long dry times is if there is a bad drum seal or door seal.

Now, if you�re using the Automatic dry cycles it's important to place a full load in the dryer and the same type of material. Do not mix different types of fabric/material or you will find that some are dry and some are still damp once the dryer shuts off.
