Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
I have a dryer that will dry clothes if I put them through two or three cycles. It was working fine two weeks ago and would dry the clothes in only on cycle. Is thier a simple fix?
One of two things... An almost totally blocked vent to the outside or a bad heating element. Remove the vent form the back of the dryer and get a "feel" for how much air flow is coming straight out without any venting connected. Then connect it back up and with the dryer running, go outside and give it the "feel test" judging as close as you can the percentage of air flow loss through the house venting. Anything more the 30% air flow loss will cause the dryer to take forever to dry. As far as the heating element, on a Whirpool, it slides up into a plenum in the back as kind of a rack type assembly. Not that difficult to replace by remove wire connecting to it, thermostats attached to it and (probably) two screws that are securing it in the plenum.
