My whirlpool dryer will not dry clothes in one try.takes a second time to dry a load. especially jeans or towels


Make sure the lint filter is free of dirt. If this is a gas dryer, listen for the burner switch on. If you hear it switch on and switches off in less than a minute, you will need a new gas valve solenoid. This part goes part and goes on safety - switch off gas. In return you only get a air dry (not heated).

Whirpool dryer takes 3 hours to dry jeans or towels.


Most likely your heating element has partially failed. Some dryers have two separate resistance heaters in them. If one fails what you are describing can happen. If you have the tools and are willing to take it in it's not that bad a job. You have to take the cover off the dryer to see it, then it is two bolts. Any appliance repairman can handle this easily.

Your house vent is restricted causing the long time to dry complaint.
Please clean the entire vent to the outside.
Also make sure the vent behind the dryer does not get smashed when the dryer is pushed back to the wall.

Takes 4 hours to dry a load of towels. plenty of heat - just not drying


How damp are the towels? More moisture= more time to dry

Is the dryer full to the top with towels? There needs to be enough space to allow for air flow in and out.
Also check exhaust vent to make sure it is not blocked.

NOT GETTING HOT ENOUGH TO DRY TOWELS IN AN HOUR


It takes the dryer forever to dry a load of clothing, no matter how many pieces or thickness. Yes, I have already checked the vents out of the dryer, there not clogged. Any other suggestions?

My Whirlpool Clean Touch electric dryer is not drying clothes very well. It is not getting real hot, and it takes two cycles to get most things dry. Towels and jeans take part of a third to dry. I clean...


IF YOUR DRYER HEATS AT ALL, BUT WON'T DRY THE CLOTHES, 99 PERCENT OF THE TIME THERE IS A RESTRICTION IN THE AIR FLOW. PULL THE EXHAUST OFF OF THE BACK OF THE DRYER AND DRY ONE LOAD. IF IT DRIES O.K., THERE IS A RESTRICTION IN THE DUCT WORK.
CLEAN OUT THE LINT FROM THE DUCT WORK. IF THE DUCT WORK IS FLEXIBLE MATERIAL, REPLACE IT WITH RIGID 4 INCH METAL DUCT.
