Question about Whirlpool Dryers

1 Answer

Dryer does not dry as fast as it used too. Takes two cycles to dry a big load. Filters and exhaust are clear, and blower is still blowing. Looking in heat element, seems like botton 1/3 of coils don't turn red. ??

Then part of the heating element is most likely not working because it is burned out or the high heat setting on the control no longer functions. Let me know the model number located most times inside the door on the wall of the door opening. That way I can Help you better, Thanks, Sea Breeze

My dryer keeps blowing the thermal fuse help


Check your lint filter, exhaust duct, and check if duct flapper is opening fully or not. Allow some time between loads and don't stuff too many clothes.

You have a lint blockage internal of the dryer.
Cut and paste this Factory Service manual to access the dryer internal parts and clear the blockage.
Check the internal lint vent and blower wheel attached to the motor.

The dryer is not as hot as it should be.takes hours to dry a load of clothes.


the problem is your wall exhaust vent or dryer exhaust or both is clogged with lint,if it vents out the roof most people remove the dryer hose get what they can get out with there hand,then remove the roof screen and blow it out with a leaf blower,if it goes out the wall do the same thing,but first check the outside for dryed lint ball around the exhaust-mike

Takes 3 cycles to dry clothes


This is a potentially deadly scenario. If the clothes are warm but just not getting dry, there is a problem with air flow - specifically - the lack thereof. The chance of fire is a real concern.

Make sure the lint baffle / trap is clear. This should be checked / cleared after each drying cycle. Most folks know about this, but I included it just in case this is your first dryer.

If the the baffle / trap looks clear, the exhaust tubing of the dryer is suspect. Many installations consist of the flexible / expandable hose. This hose may have become crushed during the running of the dryer, reducing air flow. Locate the hose and pull the dryer away from the wall to inspect, expand or replace the hose as needed. If an old installation, it is very possible that the hose has become clogged with lint build up over the years. The hose should be replaced in this case.

If at all possible, use aluminum expandable dryer duct. It is less likely to collect lint as quickly as the flex plastic style.

If the clothes are not warm or hot, the heat source (electric heating element or gas flame - depending on type) has a problem. Either of these problems should probably be referred to a pro for proper repair.

Our Amana Dryer is not drying clothes properly. It does not seem to heat up properly and takes quite a long time to dry a load. The air flow seems to be good. There is not build up of lint in the hose and...


Hello there:
Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.
- If the vent doesn't make a difference, then check the blower wheel for excessive lint build up, check that there isn't anything stuck to the air intake baffle inside the drum, (i.e. the screen on the back wall of the dryer when looking into the drum). Check the lint filter chute for blockage. Check that the heating element isn't shorted to ground. Check the exhaust temperature of the dryer. A meat or pocket thermometer can be used for this. It should cycle approx between 110 degrees and 150 degrees. Check that the drum seals are not worn out.

My whirl pool dryer has to be turned on bout 3 to 4 times


Ok, check the exhaust hose for obstructions. make sure the blower assembly is not clogged and, the hose is clear of any debris. the exhaust hose should blow out hot air forcefully. if the force of the air isn't blowing hard, it will not create a suitable drying environment for the element. this poor ventilation will also damage the heating element or burner Assembly.

Now, if there is sufficient air flow out of the exhaust hose, this will confirm control failure. replace the dryness sensor and control board in this case.

Here's a quick way to test for clogs. take the hose of the backside of the dryer then, start the cycle. if the drum sorts to become hot after a few minutes with the exhaust hose removed form the back of the unit, this will confirm a major block in the hose or blower assembly.

TIMMER RUNNING BUT NOTHING DRY


Q - Dryer takes too long to dry or multiple times to dry a load

A1- Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.
A2 - If the vent  doesn't make a difference, then check the blower wheel for excessive lint build up, check that there isn't anything stuck to the air intake baffle inside the drum, (i.e. the screen on the back wall of the dryer when looking into the drum). Check the lint filter chute for blockage. Check that the heating element isn't shorted to ground. Check the exhaust temperature of the dryer. A meat orpocket  thermometer can be used for this. It should cycle approx between 120 degrees and 160 degrees ( without clothes ). Check that the drum seals are not worn out.
