Gas or electric dryer?

If gas, I would be suspect the black spots are carbon, which, based on your describing that when you clean the interior of the drum, the spots return, is coming from the burner area.

1) If the above is correct, then call quit using the dryer serviceman immediately before continuing use.
2) If your handy repairing things, you will need to remove power from the unit, and access the combustion chamber from the backside of the appliance for cleaning.

This will be a messy job, as carbon black is messy. It comes from incomplete burning of the gas as it goes into the combustion chamber. This is normally caused by restricted airflow into the combustion chamber, and that cause is difficult to identify without looking at the unit. Best thing is to just clean the unit up real good, removing any lint buildup and carbon that can be found, and confirming that the proper orifice is installed (is this an LP dryer operating on natural gas, or vice versa.). Once cleaned and all repairs made, you will need to operate the dryer with old, clean rags in the drum for several cycles until you are certain any residual carbon has been blown through.

Whirlpool gold GT4175SPS-2 inside door paint is flaking and revealing metal. Is it safe to use?


Hi,

Scratches, flaking and bare spots are fairly common, but should be addressed as soon as they arise so the corrosion will not spread and arcing does not occur.

Unplug the power cord first.

Take some mild sanding cloth or scotchbright and clean the bare and rusted areas in the microwave. Use appliance touch up paint to re-coat the surface. You can find the touch up at most anywhere that sells appliances, it comes in a plastic bottle similar in appearance to fingernail polish, yes it does have a brush inside.

Let it dry per the instructions on the bottle or 24 hours if not specified.

    I have a whirlpool gold ultimate care II electric dryer and have to dry everything on high twice to get it dried. any suggestions?


    first how is the clothes out of the washer? That might not be spinning fast enough in final spin. When was the last time the dryer vents was cleaned. Do you have a flow out the vent? If so then something might be going on with sensors.
