dryer does not get hot


Start with the thermal fuse, remove back check switches with a tester to see if power goes through them. I an guessing it is the one on the dryer duct behind back panel. It is small rectangular with two wires attached to it. If dryer overheats this fuse will pop needs to be replaced. Also vacuum out all of dryer and venting, clogged venting will cause dryer to over heat and cause problem you have. Part is around $6-8. Go to www.appliancepartspros.com they have all parts you need. also a schematic of your dryer showing where all parts are located.

Cloths take way too long to dry. Heat is working in dryer. Timer works, counts down from 60 min, buttheremo drying timer takes way too long.


You will need to check the dryer venting system for a restriction. If there is a restriciton in the venting system the dryer will get hot but the clothes will stay wet due to the moisture never leaves the dryer. First check the air flow at the vent exit located outside. Verify that there is plenty of airflow. Make sure the vent screen is not plugged. Then remove the screen and visually inspect for excessive lint. Then go inside and check the moisture vent hose behind the dryer. Verify that the vent hose is not kinked or restricted. Then remove the hose and clear out any excessive lint. Then check the vent opening at the back of the dryer for any excessive lint build-up. There is a vent cleaning kit that you can purchase from any home improvement store that you can use to clean out the venting system also. When you are done airflow should be good and clothes should properly dry.

Whirlpool YGEW9250PWI - doesn't stop drying. What do I do?


Is the display counting down , then freezes?
Does it have the same symptons whether you set it on perm press , normal, delicate??
Are you using fabric sheets? If so, thenget some alcholol and put some on a cotton ball. There is two metal strips inside the dryer, clean them with the wet cotton ball. Remove your lintfilter. Trickle some water on the filter. Did the water bead up? If so, get some 409, windex or any spry cleaner and wash the filter as well. Retest with the trickle water. Water shoul know flow through.
YOu might want to also check your venting for retricions,. Disconnect your vent hose from behind the dryer and run a load with it disconnected. Leave enough room for the dryer to exhaust.

Lastly , i the above has no success, then you might have an issue with your interface board or thermister

Good Luck!

Back & top of dryer get hot, clothes take long time to dry.


First thing to check for is blocked airflow. Check the dryer as well as the venting from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house good airflow is neccessary. You could remove the venting from the back of the dryer and run a load to see if that helps. Do not leave it off as it is exhausting lint and if a gas dryer spent fuel.
