Question about Whirlpool GGQ8831L Gas Dryer
I have a whirlpool gold series II, Recently I'm getting my cloths with
something like black spots after use my dryier.
The drum is all spoted too and the heat exaust as well. I had cleaned several times but problem appers again after some weeks.
Can someone please help me
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.
