Dryer takes very long to dry it is a admiral mod aed4475tq1


Hello,

Most likely this means you have a blocked vent. Check the vent hose behind the dryer followed by the vent in the wall.

Hi,

If your
dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

How old is my dryer it was a hand me down the model is LHE7800W1 and the serial is M11713347


The manufacture date is dtermined by the serial number on the appliance. The following link explains how to determine the date code from the serial number on a Whirlpool:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576437-determining_the_age_of_your_whirlpool_ap

The second digit represents the YEAR of manufacure. The first two numbers after that represent the WEEK. So...according to the serial number you provide, this dryer was manufactured the first week in May of 1981. That would make your dryer almost 29 years old.

FYI: Even though the dryer is old, many of the parts are still used in modern appliances today, so parts are still available. Whirlpool did not change their parts too much over the years. I found a parts listing for this dryer available at pcappliancerepair.com. I hope you find this information helpful.

Kenmore Dryer-Mod.#11066514694-won't spin or heat


Hi,
This could be caused by an internal thermal overload switch. These usually have a limited life span in any appliance that uses heating elements. Try to locate the overload switch which usually looks like a small diode or resistor. You can determine if this is the cause by bridging the switch with a piece of wire, then trying the dryer once more.
Best wishes,

MY 6yr old Whirlpool gas dryer mod.LGR7648KQO does not fire up ,I have cleaned all parts .Thank you IKE


It appears your thermistor or gas valve solenoid has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Gas dryer


Hi Mette-q,
Welcome to fixya.com

I'm Huuum,


You said,you have a Kenmore gas dryer mod. 110.95087400 ser. ms0201135 it's a smartheat quiet pak9. Is there anyway I could convert this from natural gas to electric, is there a conversion kit available.



They do have conversion kits for gas to LP.
But I believe that there is no gas to electric.
You must find a gas line from some where in the home and run it to your location, or buy an electric dryer.
Remember that if you can run a gas dryer it will save you 30% on your energy bill over electric and in time pay for the cost of running the gas line to it.
I hope you are not in an electric only house!

How old is the dryer?? Waiting for your response!
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!
Please do not for get to give a rating before you sign off!
Thank You, HUUUM



Here is a interesting report that I just read today



Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.
