Whirlpool dryer has very little heat

The Whirlpool dryer is only 2 years new and starting last weekend it takes forever to dry because there is only a little heat coming from the dryer even with the settings to high. I checked all wirings, fuses, fans, and gas lines where all are working properly. There is heat but very little. How should I fix the problem?

Sounds like your not getting enough gas supply,there is a regulater that controls the flow of gas they can get carbon build-up and restrict the gas.You need to turn off your gas supply and unplug it,remove the regulator and clean the lines,or replace the part.

My dryer takes forever to dry anything and often times will not turn on when i press start after it's been ran for a 70 minute cycle but will turn itself on after sitting for awhile my dryer is


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

Dryer takes 2 or 3 cycles to dry


A Whirlpool dryer either heats or doesn't heat . This problem is an indication of a blocked vent hose , from the rear of the dryer to the outside vent outlet . Try removing the vent hose from the back of the dryer and dry a load , to verify this problem . Wet lint inside the hose also means the air cannot escape to the outside .

My Whirlpool dryer is taking forever to dry a load of clothes. Sometimes it works and some times it doesnt. How do I fix this?


when did you last clean out the dryer?another thing is that the gas coils could be failing,they work for a while but when the heat up they cut out leaving clothes damp or partially dry.there should be a little peep hole on front of dryer to see flame inside,pop off the cover after 10 or 15 minutes and make sure the flame is still coming on,if there isn't a cover you'll have to remove the bottom panel to check this,if the coils are good clean out the dryer by vacuuming the inside of it,remove the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean that out,then go outside and make sure the air is blowing out strong enough to open the flapper all the way,if it isn't the block is inside the vent line,remove the line from the back of dryer and clean it,if it's along run from the wall to the outside blow it out with a leaf blower and that should take care of your problem,you should do this a t least once a year so you don't have a fire on your hands,so clean out the dryer and make sure you don't have bad gas coils

Dryer has heat..but very low temp , takes forever


Make sure that your vent pipe is completely clear of excess lent. It will not dry properly if the venting is not running freely. If the unit is cleared of lent, inside and out, the only other possibility is the thermostat is not reading correctly.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance.

It's noisy
It won't start
The light doesn't work

My clothes smell bad!
My clothes are marked or torn
DON'T FORGET TO RATE';
