Finished the cleaning, man was it it bad bad shape. I have an outlet on the roof and it was

I put my meat thermometer into the air outlet, and it did indeed cycle between 165º and 135º. I also cut the flexible vent hose to as short as I could get it.

Threw in a load of wet laundry, started the automatic cycle, and it worked properly. Thanx a milllion guys.

Well, I got a cleaning kit from Home Depot. I ran it in 8' from one end, then 16' from the outside, plus cleaned the inside hose. Wow there was a lot of lint in there.

Then, with the drum empty, I set the temp to regular, and let it go on the timed setting. After about 10 minutes, the infrared thermometer showed the dryer hose was 95º F.

Well, I replaced the timer switch today, darn that was expensive. Now the dryer works on the timed setting, shutting off as designed when the timer reaches zero. But it still doesn't work on the automatic setting, shutting off very soon after you start it, with the clothes still soaking wet.

I put the unit on timed with the temperature set on "regular". After allowing it to run for a several minutes, I put my infrared thermometer on the dryer hose, showing 87º F, but this was with a load of wet towels I put in there just to test it. My home is a townhouse with the dryer vent traveling vertical for reaching the exterior of the home.
