does anyone out there have this dryer and have any problems with the cycles not running long enough? When this is set on the automatic or "sensor" dry cycle,the loads will not dry.I have to run them twice,or,do a custom setting to "more dry" and bump up the temp to dry a load of jeans or towels,or just about anything else.Really disappointed with this dryer.:(

Hopefully someone can assist you on this.

But normally when it takes 2 drying cycles on any dryer, thats usually a sign of a vent restriction/clog.

Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.

Thanks,Jake,will try this.You may be right.problem is with the location of the vent through the wall vs.where the vent hose comes off the back of the dryer.There's just not that much room back there.
