If there's heat inside the drum the heater coils are ok. Check the exhaust vent, make sure it's not kinked or squished behind the machine and that the outside vent is not clogged with lint. You should feel air blowing freely to the outside.
If there is no heat, first check for 240V at the outlet. If you have 240V, it could be the element, the hi-limit thermostat, the thermal cut-off, the timer, the motor or a wiring issue (loose or shorted)
Good luck!.

Why do clothes take a long time to dry even if dryer is heating?


One basic reason is your washer could NOT be spinning most of the water out, therefore your clothes are wetter than they should be, thus taking longer to dry:-)

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

Whirlpool Dryer GEW9200LW1 skip digits when set to dry


Hello,

If the clothing comes out dry within a normal time,usually 40 minutes or less. Whats happening is the computer is recatulacting the time remaining to dry a load of clothes as it senses they may still not completly dry or even will drop off some time if clotes are dry before time computer calculated at start of cycle.

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 .

Whirlpool dryer model #GEW9250PT1 not drying properly


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

Loads have to run through high heat cycle twice to get completely dry. It was drying completely with one run through any cycle.


have you checked your wall vent hole and dryer vent hole to make sure they are clear?if there not it will keep the hot wet air from coming out and take forever to dry,let me know-mike
