Our Duet dryer is overheating the clothes even after the cool down cycle has completed, the clothes come out super hot, I cleaned and inspected the blower assm. removed vent hose and it is clear, no obstruction, also the wall duct is clear.. still the dryer seems to be in good operating condition.. i.e. everything works as normal..no codes, no shut down etc. I've researched this and found little help.. is there some type of thermo switch or thermostat etc.. thanks for any help.. By the way, Self employed specialized cleaning equipment tech... Floor machines etc..

You need to inspect the heat element to see if it has broken and welded itself to the can...this will cause constant heating...prolly will blow the thermal fuse or high limit if this continues...

try running a load with the Vent disconnected ..

Dryer Vent

Vent should be rigid metal.
Short lengths of flexible metal may be OK, if not crimped when moving the Dryer into place.
NO plastic
NO PVC
NO screws
Foil Duct Tape is OK.
With an empty load, Timed Dry, High Heat, the vent temperature should cycle somewhere between 135F and 160F
Check / clean the Dryer Vent
Disconnect the Dryer Vent and check for good air-flow there and where it exits the house.
Check the Vent air temperature at the back of the Dryer.

Kurt... I'll look into that ...
RegUS... everything you listed is in order..meaning already checked those issues, using foil vent hose..no kinks etc. 100% clear.. no blockge.. air flow duct in wall is clear no blockage... air flow coming out off wall on outside is normal, good flow... This dryer has been unchanged, not moved bumped etc. since installed 3yrs ago, this issue just began last week.. but i'll recheck everything again.. thanks for the info guys
