Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Here is the rest of this tip about DryerMaintenance

SOURCE: whirlpool gas dryer is not

If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.

Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle:

  • The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees.

  • When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.)

  • The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.

This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

if this helps please give me a fix ya vote

SOURCE: dryer not getting hot enough to dry clothes

First check the power coming in, you need 240 volts. 120 to neutral on both sides and 240 across both. If you are not comfortable with a VOM volt ohm meter call somebody who is.

Be aware when every you remove a panel you will be exposed to sharp surfaces. Unplug first and be careful!

Whirlpool dryers have a thermal fuse inside the back of the dryer, if this is open the dryer will not heat. You will need to check this with a meter it should be closed. A quick and dirty way to check it, remove it and wire it in a circuit with like a flashlite or radio. the flashlite or radio should work, this is a dirty way to check fuses if you dont have a meter.

While you have the dryer open, vacuum it out and clean the venting.
Please repost if you have more questions

SOURCE: the dryer is hot but clothes isn't dry.

  • Sue what you want to do is remove the vent hose from the dryer and turn the dryer on and see if air is flowing out real well. If not you have a clogged dryer and you want to vacuum it out real well.

  • You also need to see if the actual venting is clear. Clean or replace as necessary.

  • Something that many people overlook is the vents out to the roof. They get plenty backed up after some use. The way they are cleaned is with a high power compressor and just blow the heck out of it until it's cleaned out completely. You can do this yourself or have a a company service it for you.

  • Guaranteed though you have a blockage somewhere and it should be addressed right away because you are risking a fire.

  • Hope this helps.

Whirlpool gas dryer (LGR8648PW1) doesn't stop spinning in automatic mode.


More than likely a bad timer assembly. They are usually easy enough to replace if you have basic mechanical skills. The part can be ordered from repairclinic.com.

Whirlpool imperial 80 won't heat much


That clicking noise is normal. You may have a thermostat problem. It sounds as though it isn't letting the element get hot enough, or cycling the element on/off too often.

Does Not Shut Off


1st go the the house breaker (dbl breaker) for the dryer and shut it off and turn it back on, your dryer runs on 220 volts of power but if the breaker is partially tripped it may be only running on 110 volts which is only enough power to turn the lights on and to turn the drum the element needs 220 volts to turn on. If it still doesn't heat after resetting the breaker then you may need a heating element or thermostat. The dryer isn't shutting off because it isn't detecting the clothes are getting dry so once you fix your heating problem the dryer should start shutting off on its own again.

Whirlpool Dryer model LER4624BW2 doesn't get hot enough


What was your solution? I was thinking one or more of the multiple coils in the element could be burned out but not the entire thing I've see that happen before. Glad you got it fixed!

Put new thermal limiting switch, thermal fuse and heating element in my whirlpool estate elec. dryer. it will not get hot still is there something i,m missing?


their are several possibilities

1) check breaker and or fuse to be supplying 240 volts to the dryer,even though the breaker seems to be on a internal burned out breaker will appear to be set but 240 vac not at dryer

2) check were the cord connects to back of dryer that one on the legs hasnt burnt and only 120 vac to dryer instead or required 240 vac

3)depending on your model i dont know if you have a timer or computer control but it isn't sending power to the element

4) the motor switch could be defective, all dryers are required by law to have a built in safety that assures the dryer will not heat when it isn't running to do that all dryers have a switch built into the motor that will only send power to the element once its running

5) in addation to the high limit t-stat and thermal fuse all dryers (depending on model) have a cycling t-stat or thermistor that controls the normal operating temp (the high limit and thermal fuse only come in to play when a dryer overheats) that could be defective

Sometimes, a Whirlpool dryer may not function as you'd like.Although specific details vary by model, the company offers several generalguidelines to troubleshooting your Whirlpool dryer and getting it back intoworking order.

Verify that thedryer is connected to its power source if it won't turn on. Whirlpool alsosuggests checking your home's circuit breaker, as the high power needs of thedryer may have tripped the circuit. If the circuit has been tripped, reset itby flipping it back into the "On" position. Push the door of the dryer. Whirlpool designed its appliances to not turn onif the dryer isn't secured and notes that the dryer door may not be fullyclosed even if it appears shut. Push firmly at the top and bottom of the door,as some Whirlpool models have two latches. Press the "Start" button again. Whirlpool reports that some modelsrequire you to press and hold the button for five seconds to fully start themachine. Depending on the model, the button may be labeled "Hold toStart," "Start" or "Push to Start." Check that the dryer's settings knob is set to an actual drying mode and notsimply "Air" or "Tumble." On most Whirlpool models, themanufacturer states that the settings knob should be set to"Accudry," "Timed Dry" or "Automatic Dry." Clean the lint trap, typically located at the top of the dryer and removedby pulling its plastic handle. Over time, lint and dust builds up here. Thethicker the trapped layer of lint, the slower your dryer performance. Whirlpoolrecommends removing built up lint after every dryer load. Remove some of the wet clothes inside the dryer if it's taking an unusuallylong time to dry your clothes. Whirlpool warns that placing too much clothinginside the dryer reduces hot air circulation, which also reduces dryingcapabilities. Recommended dryer load s vary, with compact Whirlpool modelsholding approximately 3.4 cubic feet while extra large Whirlpool dryers holdingmore than 7 cubic feet.

Clothes are real hot to the touch


sounds like you have a venting problem,, check for clogs or blockage in the vent pipe,, and also at the exit from the house to be sure the vent cover flows freely and isn't smashed down. check inside this vent to be sure the flap inside of it moves freely and isn't stuck,, Normally when clothes get hot to the touch its caused by the clothes heating up to dry and the moisture isn't allowed to be vented out

Whirlpool dryer does not get hot enough to dry clothes.


Clean/repair the dryer vent. If the airflow is restricted the result is the one you just described.

Good luck,
