Check your vent system. I had the same problem until I checked the vent outside my house and it was clogged with lint and ice. It has worked amazingly since!

Whirlpool Tumble dryer low heat, taking three cycles to dry one load


This caused by one of two possible things. Either you have poor air flow, or a clogged vent preventing air from flowing freely and therefor making the dryer short cycle, which in turn will take you two or three times to dry yor clothes, or the heating element has gone bad, burnt in half and is making contact with the case to provide it just enough power to barely heat. The second thing is a very rare occurance. I would turn the dryer on, find out where the air vents out to, and with the dryer running, go to where it vents and check to see if there is a strong flow of air. 9 times out of 10 that is going to be your problem. Another way to check air flow is to just pull the vent off the back and let the dryer run and see if your clothes dry faster. If you do it that way and they still take a long time to dry, then you'll probably need to replace the heating element

Whirlpool dryer is not drying properly. Have to go through a couple of cycles to dry clothes.


2 things are needed to dry clothes. 1 is good air flow. Check to make sure that the dryer vent is not clogged or partially clogged with lint. Also make sure there are no kinks in the vent hose. With the dryer running you should feel good air flow blowing out of the outside house vent. The 2nd thing a dryer needs heat. Check to see that the dryer feels warm to hot when you reach in to tough the clothes. It is possible that the heat element has partially failed. Another thing to investigate is how well the laundry machine is spinning out the water in the spin cycle. This spin cycle is used to get as much water out as possible prior to placing the clothes in the dryer. The wetter the clothes when they come out of the laundry, the longer it takes to dry them.

Won't dry clothes thoroughly


It could be or the moister sensor is bad. Do this first for most people never think of doing this. Disconnect the entire venting duct work. Inspect it and clean it. If you get a wad of lint every foot length from this vent this will be your problem in drying clothes. The clogged vent will not let the exhaust pass through and the moister sensor detects that and shuts off the heat automaticly

Whirlpool dryer....heats


You could have heating element going bad, or a plugged dryer vent. Start with dryer vent, make sure all lint is out of it, all the way through it, even if it goes to the roof, or out the wall. Also vacuum out back of dryer and inside vent tube. This should help with problem. If not then replace heating element its getting weak.

My dryer takes 2 to 3 cycles to dry my clothes.


Check the following areas to combat this issue. in most cases, this will be a Venting issue.

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.

Whirlpool dryer


not element, same element runs Hi and low temp
whirlpool dryers have 2 thermostats,
40degreeC (low)100F
60degreeC (high)140F

the 60degree thermostat has failed
cost is between $15 and $40 depending on how the 'parts guy' feels on that day
the dryer is easy to open, check any of the 'change belt' questions or Joks instruction brief
