I had this same problem 3 weeks ago, and here is what I found.
The dryer was so clogged with lint it could not dry the clothes. I had to take the whole machine apart and clean all the lint out. I found the felt around the drum was worn out, and that was allowing the lint to go everywhere it shouldn't. With the felt replaced and the lint gone, it worked well.
Be blessed.

Dryer heats up but takes 2 hours to dry a load of laundry.just gets warm not hot.


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

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.....

Dryer is hot when opened, but takes 3 or 4 timed cycles to get clothes dry on very dry setting and timed setting


Check for a restriction in exhaust system,not just behind unit but all the way to outside vent,should feel warm decent airflow at outside vent.If not all you will end up with is warm moist clothes,You need good airflow to take away the moisture in the clothes not just heat.This issue can happen slowly over time and next thing you know its taking two or three times longer to dry even though when you open the door its hot inside.
Good luck

Dishwater completes cycle but there is very little heat .


Actually these elements do stay warm to hot during wash to help in increasing the temp of the water...but more so during drying....how ever they do not get very hot as this would be a hazard..not like a stove or anything (as I am sure you know).....but over time the elements get old and do not conduct (or actually inhibit the flow ..{resistance causes temp increase}, of electricity) the only way to tell is an ohm meter check and removing all wires connected to the same...you would also need the Name brand of the element as well as the model # or part # to determine what the ohms should be...if it is defective you will need to change it out...pretty easy job for anyone handy enough ...
Hope this helps....The Fang

Taking 2 and 1/2 hours to dry a load


I too had this problem. My light still stays on. As for the dry time it was because of a very clogged vent. Test by taking off the vent and trying to dry,just make sure you have air flow or else the fumes will get to you. if it dries quicker its your duct work. do not do it with the open vent against the wall

take it apart and clean every bit of water out of it with kitchen roll, any standing water left inside will cause rust. Take the battery out while it dries too (leave it for 3 days in a dry place). Do not try to heat the battery, they explode if heated. Put the rest of the console in a dry warm place. It cant hurt to put it on a radiator for a couple of hours to speed this up.

It may start to work again when it's totally dry (3 days) but its a long shot.

Heating element


this could be a partial faulty heater element, a 2 heat element could only be working on 1 element, this can overload the other one causing it to keep switching on and off at the thermostat, sometimes this can be normal but saying as you think its not hot enough, check you have the settings correct on the heater options, i have seen stranger things happen test element contacts for both circuits unplug machine first
