SOURCE: kenmore dryer is hot at start of cycle but clothes

most likely you have bad gas coils?if the dryer runs correctly for the first 15 to 30 minutes and then no heat it's the coils,when they heat up they fail and when they cool down they'll work again for a time then they will die,the coils are on top of the gas valve,change them out one at a time and you should have no problems,remove the 2 screws lift up the metal top and change out the coils

SOURCE: Dryer turns on and rotates. However, does not dry

This problem may be the result of a dirty lent filter which if clogged will short cycle the dryer and the clothes will still be damp when done. Also a dirty exhaust pipe (usally 4") will prevent the clothes from drying correctly. Make sure that the air is leaving the machine. To do this you have to go outside when the machine is running.

NOT DRYING PROPERLY CLOTHES STILL WET AFTER 70MIN DRYING TIME CLOTHES ARE WARM DAMP


First check that the exhaust duct is clean, has no kinks and that the air flow is unrestricted. Sometimes water will condense inside the exhaust hose and not allow the damp air to flow.
I assume that the dryer works quietly, if not, then probably the blower fan needs replacing.

Whirlpool duet dryer - when using the settings that automatically sense if the clothing is dry the dryer is saying the clothes are dry but the clothing is still damp


Easy fix: Look inside the drum below where the filter goes in. You will see two metal strips. They sense the wetness. Now get this: the dryer sheets rub against them and a thin wax buildup on them prevents the controls from properly determining wetness. The control has no clue the clothes are still damp and thinks everything is kosher; so it advances to the end. Solution. Clean the stuff off of the sensors so that they can sense the true wetness once again.

I have a Whirlpool Gas Dryer LGR6646BI-12 the clothes feel warm but not hot and they are still damp


The Dryness Level allows adjustment of how damp or dry the clothes are at the end of the cycle.
  1. Make sure the correct Cycle has been selected for the type of fabric being dried.
  2. If the correct cycle is selected and the clothes are still coming out too damp, use the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button to increase the Dryness level.

  1. If the highest Dryness Level setting was selected and the clothes are still damp, the Customer Focused Drying Mode settings that are built into the machine can be adjusted.
Dryers come from the factory set to Drying Mode 1 (default). Drying Modes 2 and 3, include additional drying time.
Note: This change will affect ALL Auto Dry cycles.
  1. Machine MUST be in Standby mode before beginning. (Standby mode = Plugged in, Power off)

  1. To select drying modes, momentarily press the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button (Whirlpool) again. The dryer will beep, and the display will flash and show the next drying mode number.
  1. With the door open and the display flashing the desired drying mode number, press the Start button to save the drying mode and exit diagnostics.
  1. Press the Pause/Cancel key at any time to cancel changes and exit from this mode.
Hope this works............

Dryer turns on and rotates. However, does not dry clothes completely. Cycle signals wet,then damp,cool down and finally dry,but clothes are still wet. Sometimes the dryer works fine and completely dries...


This problem may be the result of a dirty lent filter which if clogged will short cycle the dryer and the clothes will still be damp when done. Also a dirty exhaust pipe (usally 4") will prevent the clothes from drying correctly. Make sure that the air is leaving the machine. To do this you have to go outside when the machine is running.

My whirpool dryer (Duet) seems to always take (2) cycles to dry...After the first cycle the clothes are still very damp.


Your dryer may be pushed too far back , causing the vent hose to kink , behind the dryer . Also , check the outside vent airflow , and check the lint screen holder , for any peeled off lint , which could also be blocking the outside air flow .

My frigidaire dryer will not dry properly( still damp) in automatic mode


Depending on how damp they are, it could be normal or you could have a plugged dryer vent. I say that because on these dryers, the software in the control is programed to leave cloths a little damp in the sensor dry. This is for energy efficiency and less shrinking on clothing. If they are coming out to damp and you need to run them through two cycles to dry them, then the vent is plugged, either in the dryer or the house, and needs cleaned out. When the vent is plugged, the moisture isn't getting out, and the cloths will not dry.
