My dryer’s loading time is too much. Is that bad?

It can be, as long as it takes more than 1 hour or so. Inspect the vents for some blockage. In case cool air comes out of the dryer, it may need to have its heating element replaced.

The warm water setting of my washer is lukewarm. How can I adjust that?

One thing that you can do is check to see if water is properly flowing from the tap of warm water. But remember that during the winter months, overall temperature of water can be largely influenced by the weather.
