If it is heating but not drying clothes, it could be a blocked duct or a blocked outside vent. Does the dryer connect to a fitting that takes it directly through the wall, or does it have a length of intermediate pipe to go through before it reaches the outside. This is usually a gradual loss of drying ability rather than an "all at once" thing. The heating element could also be broken and "partially heating" if it is touching any grounded metal parts surrounding the heating coil. In this case you would feel some heat, but not enough to dry your clothes efficiently. The only way to diagnose this for sure is to open up the dryer and view the coil itself. Breaks in the heater coils should be apparent.

breakers.If that doesn't work,you may have to replace
the heating element.

Whirlpool Imperial Series Dryer is Not Drying But Has Heat


Make sure it's blowing air out the vent outside. But even though it's heating doesn't mean it's heating 100 percent so u might need a heating element. Not to expensive to buy and often not to hard to change, refer to owners Manuel or a computer on how to change it.

Whirlpool duet dryer


Run the dryer for 2-5 minutes. Check to see if it has heat inside. If not, you have an internal problem.
If heat is generated, check your dryer lint trap. It must be clean before every dry cycle to dry properly and efficently. If the trap is clean and heat is generated, check the tubes behind the dryer for disposing of the lint.

My Whirlpool dryer tumbles but no heat. The clothes dry after along period of time and that is when i finally feel some heat.


Probably needs a good cleaning. If it was me I would remove the filter housing and do a through cleanup. make sure the vent going outside is not blocked. The dryer must have adequate airflow to work well.

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)

Click below if this was helpful, Good luck.

There is heat, but drying takes two cycles


Clean out your dryer vent. Many times the lint and other stuff plugs up the vent and slows the dry time down dramatically.

Dryer Not drying well


Check first: That the lint filter is clean. That the duct from the dryer to the outside of the house is clean. In case it will not solve your problem,it might be an heating element issue (partially burned). The dryer will still heat but at such a low temp, that you will need for extra time to get things dry. Open the rear panel, look for the heating element and check visually that there is no burned parts on it (disconnected coils). If there are a burned signs on it, you should replace it. Good luck !!
