Have you cleaned out the vent in the back of the dryer? This could part of the problem.

Those are likely possibilities. Also check the wiring for disconnected or burned terminals especially in areas that get hot. The element comes out easily to visually check it for breaks. If that's OK I'd look at the safety thermostat.

SOURCE: dryer doesn't dry clothes thoroughly

Turn off your breakers, then back on to insure a good reset. Then check the wiring from the receptacle, to the plug and then to the back of the dryer. You are getting some heat which tells me that one leg of power is out. I don't think it is your element, because you get some heat. Let me know how you do.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet dryer not drying like it used to

If your duet isn't heating properly and you have taken care of the lint problem then you could have one of two problems. Either you have a bad heating element or you have a bad fuse or temperature sensor.
If your dryer is not heating at all then it is most likely the fuse or temp sensor. If it is heating and just not enough it is probably a bad heating element.
Both problems would require a repairman to come and fix normally, however if you believe it is the heating element that can usually be replaced by the homeowner without too much trouble. Just make sure to ask where it is located from whatever place you but the new element from.

SOURCE: How do you clean out the baffles filled with lint

To remove the dryer drum baffles on a Whirlpool Duet, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer.

2. Remove the top panel of the appliance by removing the screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the dryer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off.

3. Locate the bolts that hold the baffles in place on the outside perimeter of the drum. There should be 2 for each one.

4. Remove the screws for the baffle and it will come off.

HELPFUL HINTS:

1. Remove ONE baffle at a time so you can use the remaining baffles to turn the drum manually.

2. Drum rotates in a clockwise direction.

3. When removing or reinstalling each baffle, duct taping it place will keep it from flipping around when you get to the last bolt holding it in place. It will also keep it from dropping in the drum when removing, and help you hold it in place to reinstalling.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

My Whirlpool gas dryer is not working


Instructions

1
Check that the dryer door is closing completely. Remove anything that blocks the dryer door from closing.
2
Ensure the "Start" button is pressed firmly to start the dryer cycle, the dryer is not overloaded and the clothing is not balled up. Any of these things can prevent the dryer from operating and/or drying the clothes.

3
Use a level to confirm your Whirlpool dryer is sitting flatly and evenly on the ground. Adjust the dryer as necessary for it to be level as the dryer will vibrate and make unnecessary noise when sitting unevenly.
4
Examine the inside of the Whirlpool dryer drum and in the space around the drum for loose change, pens, hair ties and other items that could have been left in the pockets of clothing. These items will cause noise and potentially cause the dryer to become inoperable.
5
Examine the Whirlpool dryer's lint trap for excess lint. Remove any lint from the trap and place it back into position. Always clean the lint trap between dryer cycles. Inspect the area around the dryer and in the ventilation and exhaust systems. Remove any built up lint and clean the area thoroughly. Built up lint is a fire hazard and can cause operating issues.
6
Check the gas shutoff valve if your Whirlpool dryer is gas powered. Ensure the shutoff valve is turned all the way to the "On" position.
7Check the electric plug and ensure it fits securely in the outlet.
8
inspect both the fuse box and circuit breaker for any electrical problems. Replace any blown fuses, if necessary, and reset the circuit breaker if it has been tripp

Clothes have lint on them when the washing cycle is finished is there a lint area i need to clean


The newer Whirlpool top-loaders have lint screens on the inner tub and not accessible. These are supposed to self-clean during the drain cycle. I've heard that liquid fabric softener and detergent build-up may clog the screens when lint sticks to the gooey screens. Try something that will cut the goo like vinegar or ammonia in a small load level without clothes. Without clothes in the washer, that is.

Older Whirlpool washers have lint filters located above the tub, on the lid opening.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

Hi and welcome to fixya,

This problem can be caused by poor air circulation inside. In order to efficiently remove lint from clothes, load the dryer 1/2 of its drum capacity. It also helps putting fabric conditioner sheets to prevent clothes from charging static electricity which can attract lint..

Hope this helps,

Your service man is right, the lint is filtered through the filter plugs on the bottom of the tub, and backflushed out during the spin cycle. This does not do a great job of filtering out the lint that came out of the clothes. So why is there so much lint? Three reasons: 1. Clothes being beaten against the agitator, tub, each other. The Whirlpool washer has a pretty decent way of agitating the clothes without too much damage, as long as there is plenty of water for the clothes to move through. As long as you make sure your load size and water level are correct, this shouldn't cause a lot of lint. I always have a larger water level than the load size calls for. 2. Lower quality material in the clothes. We definitely see this a lot, especially in the cheaper towels, rugs, sweaters, ect. Some of these have such cheaply made fibers, that they put out a lot of lint. 3. Laundry soaps. Most soaps are very caustic detergents and eat the fibers right out of the linens. There are some brands of washers that still use a type of metal in them that this soap eats right up, so in a few years the machine is junk. All of the washer manufacturers went to plastic outer tubs, as the soap was literally eating holes in the outer tubs in 2 to 3 years on some brands. This is one of the reasons we have so much of the micro lint that is so fine, it goes right through your dryer lint filter and causes lint build up in the venting itself. Years ago, at our shop in Hawaii, we tested naturopathic soaps for 12 years before we settled on the Melaleuca brand for our laundry soaps. Ph neutral, cleans the clothes better than any brand we have tested before or since, does not leave the sludge in the outer tub that most brands do, does not leave a hard aggregate in the tubs like some other brands do, is cheap and does not cause the allergys, athsma, skin rashes, ect. that most of the caustic brands are doing. We have used it for over 10 years now and see very little lint in our Whirlpool washer. Look it up online, join it, and buy the soap directly from the company. It sounds like you have done everything else correctly to the washer, that you could have. I am impressed, most people could not have done what you did. Hope this helps. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Check the pockets of pants and make sure there is nothing in them ....Take a damp cloth and wipe out the inside of the drum to try to get excess lint out of it.... also run a short wash with no clothes in washer to see if it cleans the washer out certain clothes such as towels should also be washed by themselves ...........

hi there,

you may have lint caught between the inside and outside drums but i would also check the incoming water, as it doesn't seem like you have enough coming in. check the water valves on the wall and then also the water level in your washer. im assuming you have a top loading machine.
