Kenmore gas front load dryer.Very little heat, takes 3x to dry

The dryer seems to have some heat but it takes about 3 times as long to dry a load.  When on High setting it doesn't get HOT like it used to. I clean the lint every time and we just cleaned the duct.

Have a WGD 9400 SW Gas dryer. there seems to be very little heat in the drying process which is now taking forever. Any ideas.


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

Clean your dryer vents, and lint filters. You may need to clean vent from wall to outside. to test this.. unhook vent pipe from wall..and run dryer and see what happens. If the problem does not improve, you may have a defective heat coils.

Gas dryer heats fine but shuts down before the drying cycle is over taking longer to dry clothes. Lint trap and exhaust tube cleaned out.


You are going to most likely need a vent cleaning. The dryer is getting too hot and shutting off because it is not exhausting good.

It takes a long time to dry a load of clothes


sounds as if you may have an issue with a blocked/clogged ventin, perhaps wher it leaves the home, a unit that is not able to expell the heat will tend to not dry the clothes properly, 2-3x to dry a good sign of venting issue

Kenmore 90 series gas dryer, NO HEAT!!!


Hi, if you get no glow on the ignitor and you have voltage its the little white two terminal fuse on the exhaust side that has no continuity on the series 80 it has 2 blue wires, these complete the circuit for both gas valves and the ignitor. If you have an ohm meter it you will find it rite away. Hope this helps.
