    Default Dryer cycling

    Generally speaking, how often should an empty dryer's heat cycle on and off?
    My concern is a dryer that seems to cycle okay, but if the seal is worn it may cycle too often and not dry properly. I don't think this has happened (that I am aware of) with any I have had. That being said, I have one now that heats and cycles, but I noticed the rear seall is looking worn. Makes me wonder about others I have had and never got a complaint that I can remember,

    A lot....with no clothes inside the drum will heat up quickly and with no wet clothes absorbing the heat the heat will cycle often.

    Sure it can....most bad ones I see are torn or worn down and it is fairly easy to tell it is bad or worn badly.
    A bad seal also often allows lint to build up inside the cabinet.

    Maybe I need to start paying a little coser attention to the lint/debris in the dryers I get. Surprising what you find in some of these things. I have wondered about so many coins being in some of them. I disassemble and clean all the dryers I get. I used to keep a crisper drawer to toss the change in.
