Question about Whirlpool Dryers
Have a whirlpool gas dryer Model # 1cwgd5850w0 that takes way too long to get the clothes dry., looked at a site that said to put meter on the fuse and it shows good., any ideas ?
Check the air vents both the inlet and outlet sides of the fan. Make sure there are no obstructions on the exhaust side all the way to the outside of the home.

I would suggest cleaning your moisture sensors. If you stick your head inside the open door and look straight back towards your lint screen, you will see 2 silver bars. These are your moisture sensors. They can get a coating on them over time. Once this occours, the moisture can't reach the sensor and the machine thinks the load is dry and shuts down. Using the abrasive side of a sponge or even some fine grit sand paper, run it back and forth each of them. You should be good to go if you've already cleaned the area underneath the lint screen, made sure the hose from the dryer to the wall is not kinked, folded over or smashed and you have good airflow coming to the outside of the building.

based on your description, you may have one of several problems but the prime suspect would be a restrictive exhaust system. Check and make sure you don't have a blockage in your vent system all the way from the dryer to the exit point. When cycling, you should have a fairly robust air flow at the exit outside. If you don't, then you may have a blockage in your vent, something restricting the blower from operating at 100% or lastly a poor flame from your gas system. Air movement is the key thou so I would focus on that since you didn't state that the dryer wasn't heating up.

Sounds like you need to replace the coils on the gas valve. Just make sure your venting is clear 1st. If it is, the coils are easy to replace. Remove the front panel and the coils are on the bottom right hand side. Two screws and the bracket for both comes off. One has two terminals and the other has three. Real easy once you get into the dryer.

HI, Check the following to address this issue further.
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. These thermostats are located in the dryer vent duct and sometimes mounted on the blower assembly as well.

replace the gas valve coils. they sit right on top of the gas valve. they are black and round, and clide down over a shaft. remove screw from plate holding them, and slide them up and off, replace, and it will run....turn gas off while working on unit:)
