Have Clothes Dryer MEDE300 Takes longer to dry clothes and doesn't seem to get as hot as previous. I have cleared lint from exhaust and filter but hasn't helped.
by far, the best thing to do is to pull the dryer forward and disconnect the vent from the back of the dryer. Run it through a cycle to determine if it starts dry better. If so, then it means that your vent through your house is clogged and you may need someone to clear it.

If it doesn't seam to fix the issue, then you'll have a bad thermostat. The heating element is good or else it wouldn't heat up at all, so you either have a clogged vent through your house, or your thermostat will need to be replaced.

Plenty of air going out of vent dont beleive clogged. where will i find thermostat replacement and can you send image and location on machine.
Here is a link to the part.


To access the part, you need to remove the 3 screws along the bottom of the lower front panel. The lower front panel will then pull down and off. The thermistor is seated behind the lint filter housing and it's the only part that looks like the picture I linked to you.
