I have a Whirlpool duet washer and dryer. The dryer is not working well. the ligts come on and it spins but it doesn't dry the clothes, what can the problem be?


Is it heating or not? Is this gas or electric? The first thing to check is your vent and clean the lint filter. Then you should check the heating element and the thermal fuses if it is not heating (assuming electric). If it is heating and you're not getting dry clothes then your venting must have issues. Good luck.

Won't dry clothes thoroughly


It could be or the moister sensor is bad. Do this first for most people never think of doing this. Disconnect the entire venting duct work. Inspect it and clean it. If you get a wad of lint every foot length from this vent this will be your problem in drying clothes. The clogged vent will not let the exhaust pass through and the moister sensor detects that and shuts off the heat automaticly

Whirlpool dryer model #GEW9250PT1 not drying properly


when was the last time you cleaned your dryer?all a dryer does is move air around and if it can't cycle through the dryer the clothes won't dry. unplug the dryer and then you need to clean the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is and clean out the vent line,if the vent line is a long run from the back of dryer to the outside vent i use a leaf blower to clean it out,make sure the outside vent is clear first then blow it out,if it's a short run vac it out,most problems start just from lint buildup,the clothes don't dry the dryer runs hot and parts start messin up,also vac out under your fridge,take the bottom kick plate off and vac it out,you can kill the compreesor if you don't,good luck

Dryer is taking too long to dry clothes, even on AccuDry setting for Jeans/towels - it still is heating, just not heating enought to dry clothes, I have been doing two cycles at least for a very small...


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.

Whirlpool Duet dryer not drying like it used to


If your duet isn't heating properly and you have taken care of the lint problem then you could have one of two problems. Either you have a bad heating element or you have a bad fuse or temperature sensor.
If your dryer is not heating at all then it is most likely the fuse or temp sensor. If it is heating and just not enough it is probably a bad heating element.
Both problems would require a repairman to come and fix normally, however if you believe it is the heating element that can usually be replaced by the homeowner without too much trouble. Just make sure to ask where it is located from whatever place you but the new element from.

There is heat, but drying takes two cycles


Clean out your dryer vent. Many times the lint and other stuff plugs up the vent and slows the dry time down dramatically.
