Whirlpool ggw9868kq .Ducts are clean, airflow is good. Drum rotates. Dryer warms up then heating stops. happens in both auto and timed cycles.


My whirlpool dryer Model GGW9896KQ2 seems to run ok but it doesn't seem to heat up properly and takes several cycles to dry clothes. I checked the exhaust vent and it seems to be blowing air out ok. Also, it appears the dryer goes to the cool down cycle way to early. In addition, the dryer will sometimes shut off before the time is acutally done. help--I don't want to spend money for a tech or even a new dryer. It's only 8 years old.

My stackable washer/dryer is taking at least 3 cycles on high heat before it will dry one load. It's heating up but it doesn't get hot enough. I've checked the venting and it is clear and...


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.

The dryer heats, but not enough and I have to dry my load several times on high heat. Help please


Hi, it sounds like a blocked vent. Outside, where the warm moist air exits the building, verify you have good air flow. If not, pull out the dryer and make sure there is no restriction, kinks in the vent hose, lint build-up, etc. If you have a vent restriction, it causes the heating element or burner to over heat and shut down prematurely which extends the dry time considerably.

My dryer runs but will not heat properly and when placed on auto cycle and regular temperature it will not shut off and dial doesn't move and drying takes forever


If it takes several loads to dry on timed dry then the vent from the dryer to the outside needs cleaning, replacement or is smashed behind the dryer.

My Maytag gas dryer is not heating correctly. It gets warm, but takes several cycles to dry even small loads.


If you have'nt done it yet, my first suggestion would be to have the vent on the dryer (inside the dryer all the way to the fan chamber) and the dryer vent pipe to the outside thoroughly cleaned.
That is leading cause for dryers not drying completely.
Also, has the dryer always been a bit slow to dry cloths? If so, try leaving a window open the next time and see if it makes a difference. Some houses are sealed so tight, the dryer can't get enough air. A typical dryer will use up to 200 cu/ft of air per minute when drying. If there is not sufficient air, the cloths take longer to dry.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

It takes several auto cycles on regular heat to dry a load of laundry when I think it should only take one. What's wrong?


first, check your exhaust, you have to make sure there is no buildup at all inside it. this is the most common problem to cause this. if lint gets backed up, there is a sensor that shuts down the heating element after only a few seconds. hope this helps
