Re: whirlpool model # lgr7646ez3
Here are a list of causes that may contribute to this lack of sufficient drying.
CAUSE • Lint screen is clogged with lint. • Restricted air movement. Exhaust vent or outside exhaust hood is clogged with lint. • Exhaust vent is crushed or kinked. • One fuse is blown or circuit breaker is tripped. The dryer will appear to operate, but you will not get any heat. • Cycle Control knob or temperature selector is set on air dry. • Load not contacting the sensor strips and automatic cycle ending early. • Fabric softener sheets blocking exhaust grill. • Dryer located in room with temperature below 45ºF (7ºC). • Large amount of moisture in the load. • Cold rinse water used. • Load too large and bulky to dry quickly.
Here are the solutions to combat the issues.
SOLUTION • Clean lint screen. • Run dryer for 5-10 minutes. Hold hand under outside exhaust hood to check air movement. If you do not feel air moving, clean exhaust system of lint or replace exhaust vent with heavy metal or flexible metal vent. • Replace with heavy metal or flexible metal vent
• Replace fuse or reset breaker. • Select the right cycle and temperature for the types of garments being dried. • Level dryer. • Use only one softener sheet per load and only use it once. • Move dryer to a location with temperatures above 45ºF (7ºC). • Expect longer dry times with items that hold more moisture (cottons). • Expect longer dry times. • Separate load to tumble freely.
This will help you fix this problem. i suspect an exhaust obstruction.

Have you opened the door while its running to see if its warm inside (heater working) If its getting warm and still not drying the clothes properly you likley have a air circulation concern. With the unit running check the exhaust vent outside from dryer it should have a good flow of warm air, if not you have a restriction sowher between the unit and outside. Heat alone will take forever to dry clothing,you need good air circulation to remove the moisture from the clothes otherwise all you will end up with is warm moist clothing.This generaly happens over a long period of time and then all of a sudden you realize the dryer is not working like it use to..Hope this helps you with your concern.....
when was the last time you cleaned your dryer?all a dryer does is move air around and if it can't cycle through the dryer the clothes won't dry. unplug the dryer and then you need to clean the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is and clean out the vent line,if the vent line is a long run from the back of dryer to the outside vent i use a leaf blower to clean it out,make sure the outside vent is clear first then blow it out,if it's a short run vac it out,most problems start just from lint buildup,the clothes don't dry the dryer runs hot and parts start messin up,also vac out under your fridge,take the bottom kick plate off and vac it out,you can kill the compreesor if you don't,good luck
Good day, Sorry, no reset you can get to. There is one embedded in the main motor itself, that if the motor draws too much current, and/or gets too hot. If you shut the machine off for a 24 hour period, then it will many times appear to run normally again, but it's the motor getting weak.
It's usually a slow progressive problem, and if you choose,you can, at least for the short period use the machine by either lightening the loads, or spread the loads over a longer period of time. Eventually the motor will need to be replaced.
Judging from the model number, this is an electric dryer. There can be several things wrong with it. I would start with the vent. Make sure it is not clogged (especially at the end) or kinked behind the dryer. Also, check your breaker. Electric dryers can run with one half of the 220v breaker tripped. Try switching the breaker to the off position and then back on. That may solve your problem, but if it returns, you will need a qualified electrician or appliance service tech to see where the problem is originating. If neither of these help, you will need a tech to see whats going on inside the dryer. hope this helps
HI, Check the following to address this issue further.
Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).
1. Venting Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.
Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.
2. Thermostat There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat. These thermostats are located in the dryer vent duct and sometimes mounted on the blower assembly as well.
When you moved the sensor wire on the moisture sensor may have fallen off.
Remove the front panel and locate the wire and the connection. It will be on the right side near the lint filter vent. If it is still connected your timer has gone bad.
We had the same problem. Sometimes unplugging it for a few days, it would work when plugged back in. We replaced the user interface which is part #19 on the Whirlpool parts list, the front circuit board. The part alone was $160 at the cheapest place we found. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/
