Here's what you need to do, I'm very experienced with this particular brand/model dryer:

First use the dryers service mode and see what trouble code you are receiving.

It's called "Field Service Mode"
1. Press the POWER key to turn the dryer on.
2. Press HELP. The main help screen is displayed.
3. Press and hold MY CYCLES and BACK simultaneously for 3 seconds. Press EXIT to return to the HOME screen.

There's a 95% chance that it is your blower and your dryer should confirm that.

Clean the heck out of your duct even if there is nothing blocking it. Also, excellent opportunity to take your vaccum cleaner and get all of those dust bunnies out that build up inside your dryer.

I purchased the blower from www.applicancepartpros.com for about $146 S&H included.

Partial heat


when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer and vent line?all a dryer does is move air,if the dryer hasn't been cleaned it won't dry the clothes.your model has the lint filter on top,unplug the dryer,pull it out away from the wall,disconnect the vent line from the back,now pull it out so you can work on the back,first pull out the lint filter and remove the 2 phillips screws in front of it on the top panel,now go in the back and remove the back wall,on the left side you'll see the metal duct that the lint filter slides down into,remove the 4 screws and you already removed the other 2 screws on top so now you can remove the metal duct and clean it out,vac up ant lint in the back,if you have a shop vac set it up to blow and blow out the blower wheel and the heater duct on the right side,after it's all cleaned up put it back together but don't put the 2 top screws in,after you have it back together clean out the vent line,if it's a long run i use a leaf blower,stick the leaf blower into the vent line and blow it out to the outside,just make sure the outside duct is clear,no cage or anything that will block the lint,put the vent line back on and push the dryer back,now pop the top and clean out the front of dryer,i'll send you a viideo on how to take the dryer apart.

good luck and if you know the heat is working most likely you have a block somewhere and you should do this once a year so your clothes will dry on time,if you see that it takes more time to dry your clothes this is where to start also so you don't have a dryer fire.

Seems to heat. I know it's spinning. Why aren't my clothes getting dry?


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Takes 4 or 5 cycles to dry clothes.


Most of the time this problem is attributed to a blocked or more precisely, a partially blocked dryer vent system. When a dryer vent is blocked it stops the air flow and the heat backs up into the dryer turning the heat sensors on and off prematurely taking longer for the clothes to dry. Over time this may cause the heat overload fuse to blow and you will have no heat at all.
First take a look at the dryers ducting between the dryer and the wall to make sure the vent duct (normally a flexible style) has not been crushed or kinked.
If the dryer duct to the wall is in good shape then in most cases there is a blockage some where between the wall where the ducting connects to the vent and where it exhausts outside.
The major cause of a blocked dryer duct occurs when the water in the clothes is heated to a high temperature and turned into steam, which is then exhausted out the back of the dryer to outside. As the steam cools on its journey and gets closer to the outside of the house, it tends to get cooler and turns back into water droplets. This is going to be the point where the dried lint, as it escapes past the lint filter, sticks to the newly formed water drops and starts a gradual chocking down of the 4" diameter vent to 3",2",1" and finally stops all flow of air.
Remember, the dryer is designed to exhaust so many cfm's and the more choked the vent the more heat is backed up into the dryer.
If you cannot access the dryer ducting, because it is in the wall or ceiling, to look for the obstruction, then look in the yellow pages or contact the local appliance repair service company and get the name for a good duct cleaning company.

I have a whirlpool imperial dryer, I am not certain of the age or model number. I replaced the electrical cord after a move with a 4 wire instead of the 3 wire that was on it. The dryer operates it turns...


if it's heating up and the drum is spinning then you have a blocked vent line or the duct that the lint filter slides into is plugged with lint,if your vent line is long blow it out with a leaf blower,like i said you need to clean and vac out the duct that the filter slides into and vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,you should do this once a year so you don't have a fire and your clothes will dry correctly

Dryer must run two complete cycles to dry clothes


the first thing to checkis the duct venting and make sure it is not clogged or blocked. when the dryer is running go to the outside of the house where the dryer venting is and look at or feelthe amount of air flow coming out.if the air flow is weak there is a restriction somewhere.if the air flow is good and strong then check the heating element. also the washer may not be spinning out the clothes properly

Model DLE7177RM, takes about 3 hours to dry a load of clothes. Dryer is NOT overloaded.


Does the dryer heat up or is it just cool air drying the clothes ? If it does actually dry the clothes eventually then it sounds like it is heating up. First thing to check would be exhaust hose. Is warm air blowing out of it ? If warm you got heat. If cool then your heating element isn't working. It should be fairly strong current of very warm air. If weak but warm, then somewhere between lint filter and end of hose you have a blockage caused by lint buildup or hose is bent and blocking air flow. Check hose first. You can disassemble lint trap and go beyond the lint screen into metal duct within dryer and clean with a long brush and vacuum. You can also disconnect exhaust duct flexible hose at back of dryer and work through metal duct from that end too. If you notice increased air flow then it should solve problem,

Dryer doesnt dry clothes


I suspect you have a blocked air vent. A blocked vent will definitely extend your drying time. You may even find yourself having to run a load twice to get it fully dried. One way to confirm this is to disconnect the vent hose from the back of your dryer and dry one load with the machine venting directly into your laundry room. If that load dries quickly then you know the problem is a blocked vent. Most vents get blocked by lint near their exit to the outside. There's usually a screen at this location to prevent small animals from crawling into your house. Often this screen gets clogged with lint. Most vents are designed to allow removal and cleaning of this screen from the outside.

Dryer doesnt heat up enough to dry clothes


sound like the vent duct going thru the wall to outside is stopped up / check your duct and outside dryer flap to make sure the air is open / if blocked it will take 2-3 times as long to dry and make it seem like the dryer isn't drying / larry

Clothes not getting dried


Are you sure that the duct is clean and free flowing? If the duct is partially blocked the dryer's efficiency drops dramatically. I would double check the duct at both ends and clean out as required - air flow is very important - with the dryer on - go check the air coming out of he duct outside - if it is very forceful - then the problem is elsewhere - however if only a little bit of sir is coming out - your all plugged up!.

Roper dryer spins and gets warm but does not dry clothes


Check to see if your air duct is restricted. It wont heat properly unless you have the right air flow. Check the duct from the dryer to the outside of your house too.
