Question about Dryers

1 Answer

It's a whirlpool awz 7466. It runs fine, but I do not know which settings it needs to be on to dry my clothes normally. A small load will take at least 2 hours and makes laundry take forever. Any help

Hi Jennifer,

Two hours to dry a small load of laundry (even a large load for that matter) is way too long. You're wasting electricity too. The first thing you should do is consult the manual for the dryer to be sure you've selected the proper setting. The literature for this can be found here.

Consult this literature page 63 for the location and cleaning instructions for the (e) lint filter after each drying cycle and (h) heat exchanger at least monthly. Failure to clean both will result in long drying times. If you have the "Gentle" cycle selected, drying time will be prolonged, too.

Hopefully, these suggestions will help you solve the problem. Good luck!

The heating element have got old and brittle over time and finally gave up the ghost. But it is not always the element. It could be one of the safety Hi-limits have blown. All parts of the dryer will have continuity if its working properly. Test for continuity by using a meter set on Ohms,or use a poor man's meter. You can make your own poor man's meter by using an ordinary flashlight . Break the circuit in the flashlight and add a couple of wires to it so that you can make the light come on in the flashlight, that's right hot wire that flashlight. When the bulb lights up you have a circuit! You now have a poor man's meter. The next step is to check each little gizmo on the dryer that the wires attach to. All the limits attached to the side of the heat element, the door switch (when door is closed) etc.should have continuity (closed circuit)(the light should come on in the poor man's meter) If you come across an thing near the blower housing with 2 wires attached to it, that is a thermal limit, a safety or a control thermostat (So as not to get a false circuit you need to remove one of the wires to each thing you check) Look for lint buildup or blocked vent going out the house. If everything is good and you have paid the electric bill, then the timer could be bad.

Is the drier getting hot? If so then the air flow is restricted by a dirty lint filter or blocked vent pipe.

Whirlpool AWZ 8578 - does not stop, always needs manual switch off


These symptoms most usually are a bad timer/control. If the dial turns all by itself, and continues to turn by itself like a clock does, it is likely a timer/control must be replaced. Same results if it will not advance by itself either.
You could type in "Sears Parts" for the new part, typing in your complete model number. If you wished to try a used control, after obtaining a part number, you could type that in to "e-bay" and see what you find in new or used parts there. I do.
Be blessed.

Whirlpool AWZ 410 washer dryer is not generating any hot air when drying. The dryer drum is tumbling but with cool air only.


Unplug the unit and take the top with the screws holding the lid on. Take a look at all of the wires on the top of the machine. You might notice broken/burnt wires on the safeties that are close to or that directly activate the heating element located in the blower housing located at the top of this washer/dryer condensing unit.

I have a Whirlpool commercial dryer model number LEQ7030KQ1. I will wash a load a clothes in the wash machine and they will come out so they are as spun dry as they can get. The problem I experience is...


Did you mean that you need to press manually to have the drying done well, if so the program settings is what is wrong?
Does a good timing setting work on the set?
Please clarify more.the fault you are.experiencing.

Clothes come out extremly wrinkled on top loding whirlpool washer


This is normal. You can try a lower spin setting or smaller loads. The wrinkles will come out in your dryer.
