The problem is with the gas assembly coils. They get hot and quit. Then later on they cool off and will work a little bit. Making it an agrevating intermittant problem. These are only 20 bucks and easy to replace:I have a Kenmore gas - c433b30.jpg

Heat does not go on and stay on clothes tumble but are still damp they never completely dry in 70 min.


sounds like a venting problem, check vent tube for restrictions, you can take the tube off and run the dryer, should have hot air blowing out, if you do then it is the vent tube if not then you will have to clean the inside of the dry out with a vacuum. Good Luck Tim

Have a whirlpool cabrio gas dryer. It takes several hours to dry one load of clothes. The clothes seem to stay damp towels may take all day... what could be the problem


Have you opened the door while its running to see if its warm inside (heater working) If its getting warm and still not drying the clothes properly you likley have a air circulation concern. With the unit running check the exhaust vent outside from dryer it should have a good flow of warm air, if not you have a restriction sowher between the unit and outside. Heat alone will take forever to dry clothing,you need good air circulation to remove the moisture from the clothes otherwise all you will end up with is warm moist clothing.This generaly happens over a long period of time and then all of a sudden you realize the dryer is not working like it use to..Hope this helps you with your concern.....

I just bought a gas dryer - takes forever to dry clothes


check the high limit switch/thermostat on the burner housing and if they are weak they will cycle the heat off too soon and it wont build the heat you have it set for,just bypass it with a jumper wire to test it,if this is the problem,dont leave it bypassed,replace it as it is a safety feature to prevent a fire

Dryer does not dry


Problem is likely:

- heating element, or
- one of several thermal limit switches in the electrical circuitry

If you want to further pursue, let me know.

How Hot Should The Air Comming Out Of My Dryer Vent Tube Be ? I Put A Termastate In Front Of It, And It got Up To 90 Degrees. Is This Too Cold, To Hot, Or Normal ? My Towels Seem To Take A Long Time To...


It depends on how long the vent run is. If you were to measure at the dryer outlet it would read over two hundred degrees. If the air flow is weak, it menas that your vent is restricted and thus causing long dry times.
