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).

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.

Whirlpool dryer times jump on high temp from 50 to 29 takes three cycles to dry cloths.


Check that the heating element is working. Then check the exhaust flue of dryer to make sure that it is not clogged. If it is the clothing will stay damp and the room housing the dryer will get hot and muggy.

Relatively new dryer takes several cycles to dry normal loads


Check the lint trap all the way down to vent, then make sure that the vent is not crushed in anyway. Depending on the way the person cleaned it they could have actually caused more of a clog

Whirlpool dryer wont dry.


LONG dry time is an indication of a clogged or restricted exhaust. Check the exhaust hose in the rear of the machine and make sure it is not crushed or kinked. The vent pipe should be rigid metal not flexible foil or flexible plastic. If everything in rear looks OK, check the outside vent hood for any blockages. If everything checks out, the exhaust system may need cleaning. Cleaning kits are available at most home improvement centers and at this website:http://www.linteater.com.

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.

Have to dry close twice on automatic, or once on timed. Random triple beeps.


Sounds like the drum belt has broken. It's connected around the drum and motor pulley. Without the belt turning the drum it will be near to impossible to dry the clothes, Hope this helps, Sea Breeze
