Clothes not drying? Thats it? Does the dryer turn on at all? Does it tumble the clothes but doesn't get warm? If it turns on and tumbles but takes a long time to dry, then your heating element is not working. There is a thermal fuse right before the heating element that will open up if the vent becomes clogged and its gets too hot. The thermal fuse is not resettable and will have to be replaced. If the thermal fuse is o.k. then your heating element could be burned out. These two items almost require an electrical meter to read continuity to check them. Make sure the dryer is unplugged before checking these items.
It is possible the heating element is out of your dryer Check with Whirlpool or another service dealer to see if they have your model. sometimes it is cheaper to buy a new dryer if you have a off brand or lower cost dryer
Check the vents and filters first of all. If they are blocked at any point the air flow will be restricted and prevent drying. The next thing would be to see if the heating element is working, whether it is gas or electric.
The heating elements could be bad and need replacing. In addition, if the dryer is not properly vented, clothes will take much longer to dry. You should first REPLACE your exhaust hose if it has been on your dryer for more than a year. Not clean it out but REPLACE it. This not only prevents fires but also keeps your dryer at optimal performance. Also, every 3-4 years, unplug the dryer and remove the back of it (it's just a metal panel, don't be afraid) and clean all the lint out of there. If that doesn't work, your moisture sensor may be slowly dying. If that is the case, you just have to run some loads twice. Using a pair of dryer balls helps dry the clothes faster so I recommend those too. Eventually, you may wish to consider replacing the dryer.
Note: Normal drying time for a dryer
is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct,
is not clogged.
Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot
of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying
time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer
cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the
dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance
repairman perform this task.
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one
of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance.
Replace the defective thermostat.
3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case
it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes.
Replace the element if found defective.
if the clothes are warm after the cycle then you need to make sure the vent to the outside of the house is not plugged if they are not warm then it is in the heating circuit of the dryer wether it be the element or a fuse will have to be tested. to dry clothes it takes heat and air flow if you dont have one of the two they will not dry correctly
Most common cause of this is a clogged venting going to the outside to test this remove the vent from the back of the dryer and run a load if it drys ok them you know you have a venting issue and will need to be cleaned out if not plz repost and we can look deeper into it
heating element is fine. iteither works or it doesnt, cant work halfway, your problem sounds like you hav a clogged vent a kinked exhaust leaving the home. try looking at the exit point form the home can you see any lint around the housing, VENT VENT VENT
