Well I got the washer fixed now I'm having issues with the dryer. I've been drying a small load of towels for 90 minutes and they're still not dry. The dryer is heating, but doesn't appear hot enough.

Is there a simple repair to fix this? Replacing the heating element?

Any help will be appreciated once again. Thanks.

** The dryer is heating, but doesn't appear hot enough. **

There's more than heat required to dry clothing (see the following link).

- Dryer Vent Information


** Is there a simple repair to fix this? **

That will depend on what turns out the be the actual cause.

** Replacing the heating element? **

The element might be slim possibility but the only way it would just not generate enough heat would be if it was physically shorted to ground.

Another possibility not even connected with the dryer is the washer could just not spinning enough water out of the clothes at the end of a wash.

All avenues will have to be explored to determine the cause before we'll be able to suggest how to correct it.
