Some newer dryers don’t use much heat during the first 40 min. It’s bascially air drying. The last 20 min is when the element cycles on and off. Most people don’t notice that feature because they turn it on and come back when it’s done. Check your owners manual, it should explain it. You didn’t provided a model number or I would have had a better answer.
