You can install a higher temperature cycling thermostat. They normally have a 140* cycling thermostat. Make sure heat element is not broken. Some models have a double element hand only half will work. post make and model

My duet whirlpool dryer runs for about 10 to 15 minutes then it shuts down


Unhook the exhaust hose, run the dryer and see if it shuts off. If it does not turn off the hose is blocked and will need to be cleaned all the way to the outside vent.

If it still shuts down it could be blocked inside the dryer or there is a bad temp sensor.

Keeps beeping with error message either E12 or Cln


Most dryers have safety features that detect air flow blockage. Check to see if the vent hose is clogged. Considering u just installed it yesterday it sound like the vent hose is clogged. Clear the hose al the way to outside. Sometimes it can be clogged on the exhaust vent on the outside of your house.

My dryer stopped drying wont get hot what could be wrong?


i'd check for 220 volts fist sometimes a breaker can trip one leg letting it run but no heat, next i check for vent blockage then check thermal fuse, if fuse is blown and vent was clear is blower wheel striped, check temp dosen't go over 185 deg at discharge hose if it's going over change operating thermostat. if fuse is good check thermostats and element for continuity if good need to check for power to all above if only 120 volt bad switch in motor or timer

Brand new vented dryer causing condensation in


Hello, I would recheck the exhaust hose connections, as it sounds as if you've either got some holes in the vent hose/line or the connections are not fully around the dryer exhaust vent, etc.

You might also want to look at the dryer to see if the internal exhaust pipe came loose during transport and installation. It might be possible that the exhaust vent pipe inside the dryer is loose or off the fitting. An easy way to check this is to remove the exhaust pipe from the back of the dryer and (with the dryer unplugged from the electric outlet!) check by looking into the back vent on the dryer. You can also feel inside to see if it's loose, etc. Just be carefull as the metal pipe could have sharp edges, so wear some gloves to be safe.

As this is also a new dryer, you might also contact the place where you purchased it, as there might be an quality issue that they've received a service bulletin on and could provide you with further assistance.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

DRYER TAKES LONGER TO DRY


you could have restricted airflow from the lint screen not being cleaned, a bad blower wheel, or a bad thermostat. take the vent hose off the back and check to see if the air flows out the dryer with good force, if so your vent is probably clogged or not open in the wall. the vent hose may also be picned off from puching the dryer back to far.

How hot is the Vent temp of my new Duet?


It's not the temperature of the air that is the problem. The air is seldom over 160 Deg F. If you have a vent fire the piping needs to last long enough without melting to starve the fire of oxygen in the hopes of extinguishing. Rigid aluminum piping is best suited for this, Rigid flexible is next. The tin foil and white plastic offer little resistance to melting if a fire should begin. The melting would allow the fire to replenish oxygen and support the burning process. The main caution here is to keep your dryer and vent clean...at least annually.

If the duct inside your wall is rigid metal all the way from the dryer to the house exit you need to do nothing to it . Replace the vent between the dryer and the wall with rigid metal 4" piping or hard flexible aluminum piping. If the duct inside your wall is either of the least effective types you need a new run of vent for the dryer to avoid a fire.

You can't use white plastic or flimsy flexible aluminum that feels like aluminum foil when you touch it.

Cleaned vents, dryer gets very hot, shuts off w/o drying clothes


Sounds like a faulty operating thermostat. Only way is to test on a electric griddle that you can set the temperature to 150 deg and measure with a ohm meter.

Dryer overheats and shuts off


Hi,

I would take and get a lint brush and clean the hose and I would also make sure you clean the pipe that is running on out side plus make sure the flap is opening up outside like it should .
