Are you running the dryer in a relatively humid environment?

SOURCE: whirlpool dryer making noise and shaking! The bin

The dryer has "rollers" underneath the dryer drum that support and allow the drum to roll smoothly when drying.
I believe one or both of your rollers are worn out. In either case, make sure you replace them all or you will be doing this again in the near future when the other one decides to fail.
Below is a diagram of the rollers ( #44 ) that need to be checked and replaced.
Let me know.'

SOURCE: How to install a belt on a Whirlpool dryer model LEW0050PQ?

The tech I paid to replace the belt opened the case from the top and the back, and pulled the drum back away from the front, keeping the drum attached to the back panel. This exposed the motor and the broken belt, which had been cut by the motor drive wheel, probably because the drum was too heavy. Don't you just love renters?

SOURCE: Our dryer takes multiple cycles to get clothes dry

If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these. Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it. Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician. Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws. It overheats Usually when an electric dryer overheats it's because of a defective cycling thermostat or a clogged vent system. Clean any lint from the internal and external ductwork, and/or replace the cycling thermostat (read about cycling thermostats in "Drying is too slow," above). It seems to run forever If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system. Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle: The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees. When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.) The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again. This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But?if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork

Hi there,

Drying is too slow
It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these.

Vent
Heating element
Internal ductwork
Cycling thermostat

Vent
Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. 


Heating element
Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it. 


Internal ductwork
Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

It's a whirlpool awz 7466. It runs fine, but I do not know which settings it needs to be on to dry my clothes normally. A small load will take at least 2 hours and makes laundry take forever. Any help


Hi Jennifer,

Two hours to dry a small load of laundry (even a large load for that matter) is way too long. You're wasting electricity too. The first thing you should do is consult the manual for the dryer to be sure you've selected the proper setting. The literature for this can be found here.

Consult this literature page 63 for the location and cleaning instructions for the (e) lint filter after each drying cycle and (h) heat exchanger at least monthly. Failure to clean both will result in long drying times. If you have the "Gentle" cycle selected, drying time will be prolonged, too.

Hopefully, these suggestions will help you solve the problem. Good luck!

Did you check the outside vent? Those get clogged as well.

Front load MDE2400AZW takes forever to dry stuff. A regular load takes 1 1/2 hrs to dry,but the heat is on, and it seems to work.


Make sure the lint trap in the door is clean. It has a plastic cover that opens. Disconnect the venting at the rear and run a load, if it works you have a restriction in the hose after the dryer or in the wall past the hose.

I have a whirlpool dryer it heats and tumbles but its taking forever to dry


hi,

feel how hot the body of the dryer is mid cycle.
it should just be barely warm. if your laundry room has a door leave it open or cut a 1 by 1 foot hole in the door and put a grate on it.
most likely the outlet is clogged. take off the hose, pull it away fro the wall some, and let it run awhile unhooked from the vent, you should have substantial air output when its undone, (like a hair dryer). if its still hot with the hose undone its clogged on the inside and your going to have to take it apart and clean it all out. its not that hard to disassemble and clean, it takes about an hour. study it. dont run it untill its fixed. make sure you unplug it before you take it apart of course..

Water comes into machine when on dryer clothes tak forever to dry


This machine drys by intermittently spraying a mist of cold water into the warm, moisture laden air traveling in the tube at the back right side of the machine. The cooling of that air stream causes moisture to condense and join the added water, which is periodically pumped out the drain. It takes a long time, and the clothes are not as "dry" as you may be use to with a conventional dryer. Never try to dry more than a half tub of laundry. These machines are great if you have small amounts of laundry to do, have limited space, and / or do not have 240 volts, (or a gas supply) and cannot do an outside vent. Don't plan on doing more than two loads per day. (one in AM, one in PM) Please don't bother rating, as anything but a Fix-Ya will lower my score. Thanks.

DISCONNECT THE EXHAUST FROM THE BACK OF THE DRYER AND TRY DRYING ONE LOAD OF LAUNDRY. IF THE DRYER WORKS O.K. WITH THE EXHAUST DISCONNECTED, YOU HAVE A RESTRICTION IN THE EXHAUST DUCT SOMEWHERE.
