It may not be your heating element. Your dryer lint vent pipe out the back of the machine or maybe out the side may be plugged. You have to pull the machine out and clear that pipe or rebuild it out to a soffit vent or static vent if it is in the attic, or out through your crawl space. This will make a huge difference. If that hot air and moisture doesn't get out of the machine it just goes back into your clothes.
Good luck!!

Why is my Whirlpool cabrio platinum dryer leaking water, and taking over an hour to dry clothes?


Is this an older dryer? Long drying times are often caused by lack of good heating or poor air movement through the drum. Air movement depends on a properly turning fan and a clear exit of hot moist air to the outside vent. Check and see if you get a strong blast of air from your outside vent. If you don't, you may have a fan problem, plugged vent, or kinked vent tube. The water leaking could be because you don't have any drying going on due to the aforementioned problems.

When using my dryer i notice that my windows are steamed up why is this?


What is the dryer doing? drying your clothes right? so the clothes are wet and as the dryer goes round and round the fan which is attached to the drum ( which holds the clothes) is pushing hot air into it. the vent in the front or the lint trap sucks hair lint debris from going up the exhaust chute. so "steamy" windows is when the dryer exhaust is not vented to take the moist warm air out of the house and raises the humidity level to condensate on the windows giving the steamy look. which is a great way to heat and bring humidity into the house during the dry winter months.

Does not Dry. Appears to have low air flow.


most of the problems associated with this problem are caused by lint being in vent tube to outside and restricting the air flow. clean out vent tube, from dryer to outside. this should help. repost if need be. good-day ! if you have too. clean out bottom of drier with a vacuum. around the fan and where theres lint trapped.

Hi, My maytag bravos dryer is one year and 2 months old. Suddenly it has stopped drying the clothes, it takes forever to dry a load and clothes are very warm and wet, lots of steam in the dryer, also the...


Sounds like the exhaust fan is not working. There's an electric blower at the back of the unit that forces air out through the exhaust vent. Unplug the unit, pull the vent off the back, and see if you can reach in and touch the fan blades and make them move. If it won't move something is probably caught in there. You may need to take off the back of the unit and remove the housing cover to the fan assembly in order to really tell what's going on, but it sounds like your fan has an obstruction. It could also be that the fan motor is fried but that seems less likely. Remember to have the unit unplugged, there's some dangerous voltage inside.

Steam comes out of dryer after cycle and door is opened


Probably has a restricted vent. Go outside with dryer running and check air coming out vent. Should be a good blast...not just a breath. Clean out the vent and make sure it's not kinked. If it vinyl or foil vent, replace it! Also make sure lint screen is cleaned everytime.
