I have a Whirlpool dryer with LP gas, 7 1/2 years old. It will fire up once or twice after started then the next time it is supposed to fire it will make a buzzing sound. No heat. It will not produce heat after this until it sits for awhile then the same thing, will fire once or twice then no more. I replaced the ignitor and this did not solve the problem although it did have a consistent firing for about 3 minutes immediately after I replaced the part. then it started buzzing again and would not fire anymore. The propane line doesn't appear to be the problem either since it will work initially. Also the gas water heater in the house works fine.

Dryer stays hot. It will pause on the second load (sometimes the first load) and I have to leave the door open to cool it down. I use to be able to dry multiple loads, now I am lucky to get through one.


Have you tried cleaning your vent system? It sounds as if the 4" vent that connects to the back of your dryer is stopped up. Just scoot the drier out a little to where you can get behind it and you will see the vent hose connected to the dryer. Disconnect it and look through it. Also make sure the inlet of the dryer where you disconnect the hose is free and clear from debris. Hope this helps. Have a good day.

Dryer not heating very hot. need to run two cycles to dry


Hi,

Dryer is not drying properly, In order to resolve try following things.
  • Check the exhaust hood outside the house, does it open and close freely, Clean the lint filter and exhaust duct.
  • Do not overload, 1 wash load = 1 dryer load. Sort heavy items from lightweight items.
  • Large, bulky items like blankets or comforters may require repositioning to ensure even drying.
  • Check the washer to be sure it is draining properly to extract water from the load.
  • Clothes load is too small to tumble properly. Add a few towels.
I hope this will solve your problem.

Good luck and have a nice day.

Wont dry clothes is hot inside dryer but takes 3 or 4 cycles to dry load


You have an air flow problem. This usually happens when the exhaust pipe/vent gets clogged. Clean/inspect the vent outlet, the pipe, the inlet, and the filter/lint catcher area.

Improper air flow prevents the moisture from being vented out of the dryer.

Dryer heats during function test but thats it


There are several potential causes of not heating up. You have addressed the thermostat issue already. Check the switch mounted on the motor. Use a multimeter to check the switch. Unplug and reseat the electrical connections. Two of the terminals on the switch are for supplying power to the gas valves. You can check the sensor mounted on the side of the burner housing. The contacts should open after the glow bar has been red for a few seconds. Other things to look at are a faulty heat selection switch and a bad timer. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Dryer gets hot but wont dry clothes


Do you know if the dryer vent is free of obstructions?Check outside where the dryer vents outside ,and see if the air is weak or flowing freely.If it is not clogged the air should be pretty strong from the vent outside.If it has blockage it will definitly take longer to dry your clothes.

Dryer too hot...no cool down


no the thermal fuse has nothing to do with that,although it will open again if too hot and that may be why it opened in the first place.most high heat ,long dry times are the house ducting.try this experiment.remove your dryer from the house ducting and dry a load[it wont hurt a thing]if not as hot,then get that ducting cleaned.if still hot then make sure the inner dryer air ways are clean.your blower is spinning fine[not broken on the shaft]and also check with ohm meter,or visually that your heating element is not shorted to ground[then it by passes the cycling thermostat.if all those things good and still getting high heat i may replace the cycling thermo.but as a repairman i did not have to do that very often.most of the time it was the other possibles. i hope this helps abit God bless ,tom

Dryer does not dry


any number of things actually, lets start with the basics, does it start at all just not dry???with a meter you can troubleshoot most problems right behind unit taking off back panel and checking the thermostats for continuity, the heater can also be checked right there , any one not having good continuity needs to replaced, perhaps after 3 loads it got too hot and overheated a thermo or the heating coil went bad
