Ok, check the exhaust hose for obstructions. make sure the blower assembly is not clogged and, the hose is clear of any debris. the exhaust hose should blow out hot air forcefully. if the force of the air isn't blowing hard, it will not create a suitable drying environment for the element. this poor ventilation will also damage the heating element or burner Assembly.

Now, if there is sufficient air flow out of the exhaust hose, this will confirm control failure. replace the dryness sensor and control board in this case.

Here's a quick way to test for clogs. take the hose of the backside of the dryer then, start the cycle. if the drum sorts to become hot after a few minutes with the exhaust hose removed form the back of the unit, this will confirm a major block in the hose or blower assembly.

Whirl pool duet dryer not drying clothes


Inside the door under the filter housing is 2 strips that sense wetness. If they have dryer sheet goop on them they won't sense moisture. the dryer will therefore thank them clothes is dry. Clean them sensors with windex and party on!

I have the zuma whirl pool tub. the jets go on


This is an automatic feature to dry out the pipes and prevent mold. The next time you turn on the pump after leaving these tubs for a few weeks you get lots of black **** in the water and this is what this feature prevents. Sounds like the tub is working fine :)

Sometimes dryer will heat right, next time it won't


You more than likely have a buildup of lint in the vent hose. Even what looks like not much lint in there can cause the dryer to have issues drying the clothes. Clear the hose out really well, take it outside and shake it all out, then hook it back up and give it a shot. If that doesnt work you may have a bad thermal fuse which regulates the dryer temperature and you will need to have it replaced.

Clothes take longer to dry


The first thing to check on would be your ventillation. Check at the outside of the house to make sure you have a strong amount of airflow coming out of the vent. Should blow pretty hard. If not you need to get your vents cleaned and also make sure the duct behind the dryer is not crushed. Hope this helps. Dave www.washermd.com
