Common cause for dryer taking to long to dry, (vent related issue) so long as thats be rectified, the next issue would be to look into replacing the coils atop the burner vale, part number 279834, retail for about $20, easy enough to change. although they appear to open the gas valve initially, after running for 30 min or so they overheat and no longer open the valve, extending dry time.

Clothes not dry when dryer shuts off


First turn off your breakers, then back on. Next check the wiring at the back of the dryer. You could have wires burned in two. You may next have an element that is burned out. Your relay switch underneath the top could be bad. To check it , bypass it by taping the two wires coming off it together. If it works, then you will know it is the relay .

what that clicking is , is the ignitor trying to light the burner, its electronic, and if it continues it will eventually burn out, more than likely what happened is that moisture from cleaning got into the knob and control for that specific burner, and needs to dry out before it burns out, , you can try turning that one burner on and off a few times o see if that shuts it down, if it doesn't,, unplug the unit, and wait until it dries out on its own

Replace both coils on the burner valve . After heating up , they will not open to let gas thru again until cooled down for a short period of time . With no heat , timer will not cut off unless set for timed dry .

Ignites then burner shuts down then rignites over and over wont dry


Check your connecting exhaust vent for a blockage.
Remove the vent and run a 45 minute timed dry load and see if it works correctly.
Report back.

Whirlpool dryer model LER7646EQ1


Thats what it's supposed to do hopefully the clothes are coming out dry. The dryer has both thermal sesors and fuses that tell the dryer when to heat up and when to cool down. So yes the heating element will come on and go off multiple times in a cycle.

LG Gas dryer doesn't dry clothes in one cycle


Have you checked your outside vent while it was running to see if the dryer was venting 100%. If your clothes are hot and humid I would say clean your vent pipe has a blockage and needs to be cleaned out. Also as far as the burning smell you could take the front off (unplug first) the dryer of by removing 4 screws one above and one below the latch and two at the bottom and there are two clips one at the top left and right push in with a puddy knife and lift the top up a couple inches and lift the front up off the bottom holders. Then you will have access to vacuuming the lint that is floating around the burner.

Whirlpool dryer - element heats, then shuts off quickly


Sounds like you have a stopped up vent on your home, when the vent gets stopped up the dryer can't circulate the air properly in the dryer and causes it to get to hot which causes the high limit thermostat to kill power to the element. If you need more help with this visit the link below:
