Question about Whirlpool Dryers
45 Days ago, cleared out debris at the bottom of the output vent. Problem improved slightly, but not solved.
If you have heat but ineffective drying, it will always be an issue with the venting system. The hose could be smashed, there could be a clog anywhere along the run of hose or even at the exit outside. A very long run of hose (more than 12 feet) will often cause problems.
If you were to take the hose off the back of the dryer, run a cycle with a load and have it dry in 45 minutes or less, you will know it's an exhaust issue in the venting system.

Did you clean the entire length of the vent ducting? Or, did you only clean the lint trap on the dryer and the exhaust vent outside? If you didn't clean the ducting as well, you may still have a clog somewhere causing your dryer to be "starved" for air. A dryer needs proper air flow to dry properly. One way to check is to turn the dryer on and go outside to the exhaust vent opening. Feel to see if you have sufficient air flow. If the air flow is weak, you have a clog. If not, you may have a high limit thermostat cutting off prematurely, not allowing the heating element to heat long enough. Check your ducting first and let me know if this helps.

Either the heater element is breaking or is loose and getting only 110V instead of 240V. First I would check the wall outlet with a voltmeter for 240V between Line1 and Line2. Also check the connections and continuity for the heater element.

with a gas dryer in which your assured te hventing is free and clear of any obstructions, i would look to replace the coil pack located atop the gas valve itself, probably about $25 part number 279834... 2 coils simply mount atop the valvle

The first thing to check is the temperature. start the dryer, and check it about 10-15 minutes in, is it very hot or kinda cool? IF its very hot, Look at the lint trap channel to see if there is a build up of lint, then remove the vent hose from the back of the dryer and make sure it has no lint in it and that it is clear all the way through the outside of your house. Make sure the flapper for the dryer on the outside is clear.
If it feels coolish, you will need to replace the heating elements, or a control circuit. Neither are expensive.
IF you do it yourself it could cost maybe $50-100. Since your asking for help here, I urge you to pay for a professional to repair the dryer which may run $150-200. You will have to decide if repairing the dryer is worth the investment.
