Your complaint is:"Our dryer, described below, takes between 4 and 6 hours to dry, though it's advertised as "heavy duty" and "extra large capacity.""

Based on the information provided above, I am unable to provide a positive solution to your issue. Your model number is incomplete! I have provided some common solutions to help guide you in your search. This information is for a non-specific brand model, gas dryer.

This link, http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SmartSearch.aspx, provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Just follow the links to navigate through the site.

You will need to enter the model number stamped on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the User’s Manual. to access your product information.
It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these:

Vent
Flame sensor/gas valve
Internal ductwork
Cycling thermostat
Lint Filter Vent: Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. Also note that, to maximize drying efficiency, the vent should be as short as possible.

Flame sensor or gas valve coils: This is the most likely cause. Click links below. http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=3449&PPStack=1 http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=3229&PPStack=1 There's a flame sensor near the igniter. If it's defective, the gas may shut off prematurely. Another common problem occurs when one of the electrical coils on the gas valve fails intermittently. If this happens, the flame shuts off before the thermostat sends a signal, which can greatly prolong the drying time. If the sensor or the coils are causing the flame to shut off, replace them.

Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.
If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.
Thank you,
Dave E. (Illeagle)

SOURCE: how to check and replace dryer's heating

unplug the machine from the wall - open the door and look in the top of the door hole - there will be 2 screws there - take them out and you will be able to lift the top off - the heating element is located behind the drum on the rear wll of the cabinet - use an Ohmmeter to test the element for continuity - if it is open - you will need to remove the front of the dryer and then the drum to replace the element - if it is continuituos the problem may be a fuse or thermostat or broken wire or an open timer

Won't let me change temperature and won't start up


There are some complex Circuit Boards on the newer models. It isn't a quick fix that I can give you. An Technician needs to check it over. Could cost a lot.

My Whirlpool Imperial Series WGD5550SQ0 has low heat, does not start the way it used to. My wife has to alter the settings to make it work. What could be the problem?


The 'operating thermostat' is not working correctly. It should allow heating up to about 155 degrees F and then open for a short period and then re-close. This is the cycle during drying.
