I have a 30 lb dexter dryer that is not getting hot enough as compared to the others any ideas? also this one runs 2 minutes longer than the rest does anyone know how to change the time on a dexter model dzh3q?
What temperature is the control board reporting while it's running? Is it reporting the correct (higher) temperature but you've checked the real temperature in-drum and it's not high enough, or is there a chance it's programmed to run at a lower temp?
Wow... I'm tired after a weekend camping at the beach. I'll paraphrase my question: is it a programming issue, or is the dryer not reaching its requested temp?
As for the time of cycle setting, your owner's manual will be more specific, but there's a combination of menus accessed by pressing the service/programming button inside the control board compartment - usually it's on the back side of the customer facing display. Then, once you're in programming mode, a sequence of temp buttons and start button presses will be used to change the display. It's all rather cryptic, which is why I prefer the Palm/handheld method of programming...assuming your model dryer is capable of handheld programming.

My first thought is that it's programmed differently than your others.
Did you ever have to swap out the control board for repair? Is it a different board, cause it's sounds a lot like it's programmed to run at a lower temp and a longer time.
You need to either read your instruction manual, or consult your local Dexter distributor to learn how to check you dryer's settings and to program them.
Your manual will show you both how to program the time and heat levels.
Like I always say...."It all comes out in the wash"....
