Try cleaning all the vents inside the dryer all the way to the outside. Be sure and clean around the blower wheel lots of things get in where the blower is pencils nails everything. They will block the wheel so it can't turn. Also vacuum the lint out of the motor. Lint most likely the problem. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet Dryer is scorching clothes

there is a sensor in the exhaust line in the dryer, near the motor. this tells the heating element to shut off when it gets to a certain temp, either during reg cycle or if the exhaust gets clogged, it is meant as a safety measure, but it sounds like yours is bad so the heating element never shuts off. it is not an expensive part and easy to replace

SOURCE: whirlpool dryer model LEB6000PQ0 its not heating

check your breaker first.A dryer will run on 110 but wont heat.if not breaker it could be your thermal fuse or element.the thermal fuse is located on element cage,unplug machine and test for continuity to your thermal cut off fuse which will be the top one on cage and check continuity to element.

you need to check continuity across the heating element with an ohm meter looks can be deceiving

SOURCE: Dryer not heating as it should. Gets warm, but takes several cycles to dry clothes

Could be 2 things... either your heat source is out of repair or your vent is blocked. Since you say it only gets warm I'll assume the problem is with the gas coils inside the unit. These parts are replaceable

The vent may be stopped up, or the vent hose crimped so the air cannot escape, you can check the air flow at the vent on the outside of the house while the dryer is running.
try cleaning the vent and the lint screen with a vacuum cleaner, you may need to replace the vent hose, this should solve the problem

I have a whirlpool dryer and the heating eleiment is getting hot but the dryer inside is barley warm


Inside of the dryer gets warmed up when the drum rotates as there is circulation of air. Hope your clothes are drying. If it takes long time then clean the screen filter as it gets clogged with the flint from clothes. As a matter of routine clean this filter every time you use it before starting the drying process.

Slow to dry


Hi!!

Have you cleaned the filter and the exhaust duct??

Lint plugs therm up, the heat sensor shuts off heating element thinking it is hot enough. Result: Clothes not getting dry.

Unplug duct and clean it, also clean the exahust passage of dryer. (where duct hooks to dryer)

Whirlpool Dryer- Model #YLEQ5000PW0, does not get hot enough to dry clothes and makes a ckicking noice when the drum rotates. What do you think the problem is?


if you have any heat than your element is good,the reason it take's so long to dry the clothe's is due to a blockage,first you nead to look behind the dryer with out moving it to see if the vent hose is pinched off,next try running the dryer with out the vent hose hooked up,if it dry's well than you have a blockage some were between were the vent hose hook's up to the dryer and vent outside.you nead to check the roller's for the clicking noice.

Dryer heats up but clothes won't dry


Sounds like to me, that you need to check the vent going outside from the dryer. I had the same problem, and found a birds nest in the dryer vent on the outside of my house restricing air flow. If that doesn't fix the problem, look into a new heating element and or thermostats for the dryers. The old ones could just not be getting hot enough anymore. Good luck.
