Wrinkles clothes terribly. Solutions.


Check your settings on your dryer. See if it's on a longer duration of time to dry. Dryers have different wording depending upon the make and model. If you're trying to dry smaller loads the heat settings s
does not have to be set for very long. Heavier, loads with thicker clothing will need to dry a little longer. When you take the clothes out of the washing machine, do you shake the clothes before putting them in the dryer? And do you use dryer sheets? Believe it or not, they're not only used to help make your clothe's smell fresh but they also help elevate static and a few wrinkles.

Wont get hot and dry clothes


If the dryer runs the same as before except it will not get hot then check your heating element that is more than likely your problem.

Wdc1025 splendide all in one combo,the dryer doesnt seem to get hot enought to dry??help


Do the clothes eventually dry over a longer period time than usual? If so, there are 2 possible problems.

1. Your dryer vent is nearly clogged
2. If it is electric, then the heating element is going bad.

GOOD LUCK

My admiral dryer runs but has stopped drying the clothes to where I have to run the load five or six times and when I take out the clothes they are cool instead of warm. It does this with every drying...


either your heat cycling switch,hi-limit switch,thermistor or part of your element is defective or you don't have full 240 volts to operate your dryer i.e. only 1 leg of 120 volts it will run in some cases but will heat poorly

Clothes not heating up and remain wet


ok like i said before haiers can be tricky. if you where to remove the lid 2 screws in back pull forward and remove lid. you will see a silver peice i believe you will also see the fan. That metal peice should have 2 wires on it. that is your heating element. I am going by memory so dont quote me. but if you check with no power to the unit///unplug...check the 2 wires at that silver metal peice you should have continuity there. if not your element is bad. i belive it is located to the right of the unit directly under the lid. there is also a thermistate there as well I know those thermistates are not very good. and the last time i had a haier not drying was the thermistate.I think there might be 2 orange wires going to it. I hope this helps..

Doesn't completely dry clothing


Make sure lint filter is clean and vent pipe and outlet are not clogged.  If the clothes are getting warm then the element is working.

Dryer still gets warm but not as hot as it used to. Takes forever to dry clothes. Clothes used to come out really warm yo hot and dry butno more.


sounds like an airflow problem. disconnect the vent behind the machine and clean it out thoroughly. it might be kinked behind the machine, be careful when you push it back to the wall as to not kink the vent hose. if possible use a straight smooth metal duct to exhaust the air to the outside of your home.
