Question about Whirlpool Duet 6.7 cu. ft. Electric Dryer

1 Answer

I have a whirlpool duet dryer 6.7 cu ft. Electric dryer and it is not drying. The vent is clean, but the front has said PF a few times, it takes 2 or more cycles to fully dry a large load. What do I do next if I cleaned out all the lint/vent hose etc. Thank you, Lindsey

    Ok, it is a WED9250WRO. Once again, the hose has been fully cleaned. The digital numbers that show how much time is left keeps reading PF. Not every time. When this appears it automatically shuts off. The clothes are not dry at all and it will start right back up. I think it means power failure??? There is no lack of power. Our power went out months ago when we had the huge storm in June. Would it need reset somehow?

SOURCE: Gas Dryer - takes to long to dry

Friend,
huuum At your service!

Sometimes this can happen when the vent line is clogged.


1. Check if the lint filter is full and needs to be cleaned.
Try this first.If the vent line is kinked or blocked
2. Then check if the outside screen covering the exhaust vent if this is even half blocked
with lint there will be no heat! This screen is to keep small animals out!
Try checking this and if it is clogged or the spring loaded door is stuck closed.
Try to clean the lint out of the corners of the flap door,
and or remove the screen permanently!
NO ANIMALS LIKE TO GET BURNT,IT'S HOT IN THAT TUBE!
Take the vent line off the rear of the dryer and try if it works. If it does you know it's the vent line and not the dryer that's the problem the dryer.





You will be fine
Bless You huuum

SOURCE: whirlpool duet electric dryer taking too long to dry

A1 Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.
A2 - If the vent  doesn't make a difference, then check the blower wheel for excessive lint build up, check that there isn't anything stuck to the air intake baffle inside the drum, (i.e. the screen on the back wall of the dryer when looking into the drum). Check the lint filter chute for blockage. Check that the heating element isn't shorted to ground. Check the exhaust temperature of the dryer. A meat or pocket  thermometer can be used for this. It should cycle between 120 degrees and 170 degrees. Check that the drum seals to make sure the are not worn out.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Why does it take two

Turn the dryer on high heat and go outside the house, hold your hand over the vent where it exits your house. Is the air flow good or is it weak? Is the temperature warm or is it hot?

If you have weak air flow you have an obstruction, most likely in the blower housing. Check the "bird guard" on your vent outside to be sure it is free and clear. If you temperature is low you may have blown your hi-limit t-stat. You will need to replace it.

If you have no heat whatsoever, it may be the thermal fuse.

Sounds like the vent is clogged with lint. You should have the vent cleaned once a year to keep the appliance operating properly. Also, make sure there are no kinks in the vent line.
Good luck!

Check the lint trap and the vent. If the vent is clogged or crushed in anyway then replace it with a new dryer vent.
There reasons why a dryer will not dry clothes:
Clogged Lint Trap
Crushed or clogged vent
Last but not your issue, not getting and heat to the unit due to glow ignitor bad or no gas supply or bad gas valve.
So check what I told you and this should fix the problem right away
