Damp clothes when done


Your problem is going to be 1 of 2 things either the dryer is not tumbling o you're not getting adequate air flo out of the drye which basically suffocates the drye which basically suffocates the dryer element preventing it from drying, you can check this by turning the dryer on and finding out where the vent is outside and verify airflow is good. My guess would be the second is the problem

Whirlpool Tumble dryer low heat, taking three cycles to dry one load


This caused by one of two possible things. Either you have poor air flow, or a clogged vent preventing air from flowing freely and therefor making the dryer short cycle, which in turn will take you two or three times to dry yor clothes, or the heating element has gone bad, burnt in half and is making contact with the case to provide it just enough power to barely heat. The second thing is a very rare occurance. I would turn the dryer on, find out where the air vents out to, and with the dryer running, go to where it vents and check to see if there is a strong flow of air. 9 times out of 10 that is going to be your problem. Another way to check air flow is to just pull the vent off the back and let the dryer run and see if your clothes dry faster. If you do it that way and they still take a long time to dry, then you'll probably need to replace the heating element

Clothes not drying


Clothes not drying? Thats it? Does the dryer turn on at all? Does it tumble the clothes but doesn't get warm? If it turns on and tumbles but takes a long time to dry, then your heating element is not working. There is a thermal fuse right before the heating element that will open up if the vent becomes clogged and its gets too hot. The thermal fuse is not resettable and will have to be replaced. If the thermal fuse is o.k. then your heating element could be burned out. These two items almost require an electrical meter to read continuity to check them. Make sure the dryer is unplugged before checking these items.

Takes 3 cycles to dry. has some heat but not a lot.


check your vent inside the home and outside,, if the air doesn't circulate it will not dry ,, take the vent hose off and run it a cycle, it will be alittle dusty but this will let you know if it is the vent or not,, please do not run it with the vent off for more than one cycle,, if it dryes with the vent off you have a clog somewhere

Kenmore 600 dryer tumbling & heating, but not drying


Several reasonings. Step One make certain that you have 220 volts coming to your outlet. It takes 110 for the motor, and it takes 110 for the heating elements. If you have a volt meter that would be the best way to do that. Take the red and stick it in to the long part, and the black lead to the ground. Fuse houses was bad about this. Step Two it could be the elements are kicking off too soon. That is usually a sign of almost blown element. Step Three the heat sensor for the element prematurely kicking off the element.

Blocked vent hose . Disconnect the hose from the dryer and dry a load . If dryes ok , check the vent hose and vent . Make sure there is good air blowing out the back .
