Question about Whirlpool ET8CHEXSQ Dryer
Clothes dry when vent not hooked up. Vents have been cleaned, including one that goes to the attic. Dryer is getting hot so it's not the heating element. Dryer is only four years old.
Check the following to address this issue.
Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.
Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.
3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.
