No lint on filter? Where is it all going? Checked exhaust vent bought a vacuum attachment and there is no lint. Twice and sometimes triple the drying time! Help!

  1. Dryer Does Not Run
    • 1 Close the door firmly. The dryer will not operate if the door is not completely closed.
    • 2 Press the "Start" button firmly or push the knob in to start the dryer.
    • 3 Turn the dial past the "Off" position and away from "Wrinkle Prevent." The dryer will not start in the "Off" or "Wrinkle Prevent" position.
    Long Drying Times
    • 4 Remove the lint screen. Clean it and replace it.
    • 5 Check the temperature of the room. The dryer will not operate properly in temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit.
    • 6 Inspect the area around the dryer. It requires at least 1-inch clearance on the front and sides of the dryer. A 5-inch clearance is needed on the back of the dryer. Move the dryer, if needed.
    • 7 Separate large loads and do not use an air dry cycle.
    Lint, Stains and Wrinkles
    • 8 Clean the lint screen before drying each load of clothes to prevent lint buildup on clothing.
    • 9 Add fabric softener sheets before starting a drying cycle. If the sheets are added after the load has partially dried, they can leave stains on the clothing.
    • 10 Dry small loads and remove clothing as soon as the drying cycle completes to prevent wrinkling.
    Dryer is Noisy
    • 11 Check the inside of the dryer for loose change, buttons or other items. Empty the pockets on clothing before drying.
    • 12 Separate items that are knotted together and restart the load. Knotted or balled up clothing will bounce and make the dryer vibrate.
    • 13 Level the dryer. Turn the leveling legs on the front of the dryer clockwise or counter-clockwise until the dryer is level. Turning the legs clockwise will lower the dryer. Turning the legs counter-clockwise will raise the dryer.

My Whirlpool Dryer (model no. LGR4634EQO) is no longer heating, or getting hot at all. How can I troubleshoot it??


suggestions about things they can do to troubleshoot commonproblems.

    • 1 Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen ifthe clothes are not dry after a drying cycle completes. Remove the lint fromthe lint screen and replace the screen. The dryer ought to dry more efficientlyafter the lint screen is cleaned.
    • 2 Open your home's breaker box if the dryer is notturning on or no indicator lights are visible on the front panel. If theswitches for the dryer in the breaker box are flipped to "Off," flipthe switches over to the "On" position.
    • 3 Remove some of the clothing in the dryer or drysmaller loads if you notice that the clothing is wrinkled when you finishdrying a load. Larger loads cause the clothing to wrap around one another whendrying, increasing the likelihood of wrinkles.
    • 4
Pull the dryer unit away from the wall and checkon the position and arrangement of the exhaust vent. An exhaust vent that ispinched between the wall and the appliance or an exhaust vent that is kinkedcan't allow air to flow through it properly, making it difficult for theappliance to dry properly.
    • 5
Make sure the door is closed if the dryerdoes notrun. Also check to make sure that you hold in the "Start" button forat least a second. Pressing the button for less than a second may not give thethe dryer enough time to recognize the button has been pressed and that itshould start.

Thanks for using fixya.

Whirpool dryer model wed9400swo the dryer door pops open

This usually occurs when the load is too large, causing the cloths to push the door open. If this is not the case, you should replace the door latch mechanism, which is what keeps the door closed.

Dryer drum is turning, but not drying the clothes. When I open the door, there is heat. Lint has been cleaned out

Check where the dryer vent comes out and make sure that there is a good amount of air coming out. If the fan is blowing, the drum is turning, and there is heat, the likely thing is that the dryer vent is partially blocked. Check the pipe leading out. Bird's nests are not uncommon. The only other thing I can think of is that the door catch is wearing out and the door is popping open, shutting the dryer off mid-cycle. Some dryers will continue to run the timer if the cycle is interrupted and it will appear that the dryer ran its full cycle, but in reality it shut off soon after it started.

My dryer stopped working. Dryed a load of clothes

Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top rightof door opening. If it is not there you will need new doorswitch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and doesnot click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicksand clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuseis an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Dryer stopped working mid-cycle.

I presume she pushed the start button again. Can you hear the motor running? If so, it's a broken belt. The door switch can fail anytime. If the dryer started ok later, the motor was overheated. Lighter loads will avoid a lot of problems, and the dryer will probably work better.

Whirlpool Dryer stopped mid cycle and won't start again

This sounds as if the internal fuse has blown. I am assuming you have checked the breakers as well. The starter switch might be bad.
