To diagnose this, start the dryer on any cycle (air fluff is fine), then check the airflow at the exhaust vent. If ...

After cleaning the dryer vent you should be seeing shorter drying times per load. A restricted dryer vent limit's (reduces) the amount of warm, moist air being exhausted; slowing drying time. As already mentioned check again for lint blockage. If the thermostat is defective it will not fully heat-up. Put your hand on the exhaust duct; it should be warm. ...

I would replace the element -- I seriously doubt a 4 ohm reading on a 10 ohm element is anywhere within specification, and it certainly would explain the dryer overheating due to the excess current draw.

Maybe, but probably not. Electrical Most electric dryers are designed to be connected to a 30 ampere branch circuit, using a NEMA 14-30 plug. While most electric ranges are designed to work with a 50 ampere branch circuit, using a NEMA 14-50 plug. Since the two devices likely use different plug configurations, it's not going to be as simple as just ...

In my experience, I tool bought one a DIY 8 foot cleaner that is actually fiberglass and comes with 4 two foot sections that attached to a 4 inch brush. The problem here is you MUST only go a few inches at a time an pull back to the point of exiting. If you drive the entire length, you are only packing all the lint to a point that may be open or screen ...
