Hi, you are correct. this drying time is quite long. i recommend checking the following areas on your unit to combat this issue. the most common issue here will be a clogged vent hose or blower housing obstruction.

Check the following---


1. Venting
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.

2. Thermostat
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.

My whirlpool dryer moder ler6620pto gets hot but clothes are taking to long to dry. it seems to be getting hot enough.


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

What is automatic dry miser


Hello,
What the automatic dry miser is, is a sensor that measure how dry the clothes are and will adjust the time its going to take to dry the clothes throughout the entire cycle. If at the beginning it estimate it will take 40 minutes to sry a load but they are dry in only 25 minutes the dryer knows the clothes are dry and cuts the dryer off. Saving 15 minutes of unneeded gas and electric that it would run and waste power and gas since the clothes were dry already.

Takes long to dry clothes


on your side, it is better you don't touch anything internal in the dryer as you can hurt yourself and spoil the device even more. have a professional take a look at it before you use it any further.

The dryer runs fine with no load but as soon as i add clothes aft


Sounds like the motor may be on its way out. a motor, over time can form a short or require more amps to do its job but can cause the breaker to trip. Also over time, dust and lint can build up over time, inside the dryer and cause it to over-heat.

New Whirlpool Dryer taking too long to dry


Old dryers worked on the premis, "bake them til they are done". Newer dryers are all about saving energy. Newer dryers rely far more on airflow than thier predecessors. Most likely if your clothes are taking 120 minutes to dry for a new dryer, you have a ventalation problem. Make sure (even if it was "professionally" installed) that the vent from the back of the dryer to your wall in not kinked, bent over, or other wise restricted. Also make sure when the air is venting to the outside of your house you can feel a fair amount of air pressure there. Bulid up over time or even a nest being built in your vent can cause a restriction on airflow. These can be cleaned by a professional service or many appliance and hardware sell cleaning brushes and kits. Worse case scenario, Whirlpool will pay for customer instructs for the first 6 months. So even if they have to come out and tell you it's a problem with your house vent or electrical supply, whirlpool can be billed for this. Of course if there was a manufacture defect off the production line, repairs are still covered under warranty as well.
