Are the clothes warm after cycle? If not heater coils may be bad. Is lint trap cleaned out? Have you checked the vent that exhausts the air to the outside? make sure it is cleaned and kink free and the air is flowing freely. If you can get to the end of the vent outside you could try running the unit and check to see if you're getting good air flow outside from the vent.
Check for a restriction in your exhaust vent. not just behind the machine but all the way to the outside vent,should have good warm airflow at outside vent. With no good air flow you have no way to get rid of the moisture. and all you will end up with is warm moist clothes. this can happen slowley happen over time and next thing you know it takes several cycles to dry the clothes .it cost a lot to dry them this way
First and foremost check your vent! Make sure it is nice and clean and clear especially if the clothes are coming out warm and damp at the end of the cycle. If the clothes are cold at the end of the cycle or you find the dryer stops heating about 15 or 20 min after you start it then you will want to replace your gas valve coils. If you need more help in replacing the coils feel free to ask!
The Dryness Level allows adjustment of how damp or dry the clothes are at the end of the cycle.
Make sure the correct Cycle has been selected for the type of fabric being dried.
If the correct cycle is selected and the clothes are still coming out too damp, use the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button to increase the Dryness level.
If the highest Dryness Level setting was selected and the clothes are still damp, the Customer Focused Drying Mode settings that are built into the machine can be adjusted.
Dryers come from the factory set to Drying Mode 1 (default). Drying Modes 2 and 3, include additional drying time. Note: This change will affect ALL Auto Dry cycles.
Machine MUST be in Standby mode before beginning. (Standby mode = Plugged in, Power off)
To select drying modes, momentarily press the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button (Whirlpool) again. The dryer will beep, and the display will flash and show the next drying mode number.
With the door open and the display flashing the desired drying mode number, press the Start button to save the drying mode and exit diagnostics.
Press the Pause/Cancel key at any time to cancel changes and exit from this mode.
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.
End of Cycle Signal
The End of Cycle Signal produces an audible sound when the
drying cycle is finished. Promptly removing clothes at the end of
the cycle reduces wrinkling.
END of CYCLE S_GNAL
Press END of CYCLE SIGNAL to adjust the sound level or turn off
NOTE: When WRINKLE GUARD _ is selected and the End of
Cycle Signal is on, a tone sounds every 5 minutes until the
clothes are removed, or WRINKLE GUARD _ ends.
ck to see if a wrinkle guard button is present or some such control if option is turned on most dryers will come on shut off like that for up to 12 hrs before completely shutting off this helps reduce wrinkles in clothes not removed from dryer when dry cycle completes ..if you can find owners manual consult if for a better explantion
