Hi, If the dryer is taking to long to dry went hooked up to the vent, the vent hose is either plugged, pinched/kinked, or to long. Make sure the veny is clear and that the flapper on the outside vent cap is opening.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

My whirlpool dryer lgr6620pqo doesnt dry clothes enough already replaced cycling thermostsat seemed to work now still not drying enough


Clean/Replace your dryer vent hose; also, make sure it is as taunt and short as possible. Any extra loops or turns prevents proper air flow (moisture) from leaving the dryer and being vented outside.
Also, check your outside dryer vent; sometimes critters make a home in the warm vent.
Hope this helps...

Gas lights up for about 5 minutes and then burns out. Try to turn on dryer again, but flame won't light. I let dryer sit for aout 30 minutes and turn on again - flame starts up, but will only last...


If the flame is shutting of before it reaches the operating temperatures the likely failure is a restricted venting system. There is a high limit thermostat that will cause the flame to shut off if there is a lack of airflow due to a restriction in the vent system. Remove the lint filter screen and clean in with soap and water. The filter may appear clean but it could have a clear film of fabric softener residue covering it causing a restriction in the air flow too. After cleaning the filter reinstall it before running the next test.

For testing purposes only, disconnect the dryer vent hose from the back of the dryer and put a normal load of clothes in the dryer and start the dryer. If the clothes dry in the normal amount of time that would confirm a restriction in the vent hose or the venting system. NOTE: Do not leave the vent hose disconnected after running the test. Reconnect the vent hose.

You will likely find the clothes drying in the normal amount of time indicating a restriction in the venting.

Does not heat enough to dry the clothes the first time. Must dry twice.


check the vent hose sounds like it is plugged, might be a birds nest in the outside vent, when the vent is blocked the dryer can not pull any air into the dryer and can't push out the moster leadden air, make sure you check the in tire exhaust hose even right behind the dryer were the hose atches to the unit......GOOD LUCK

Dryer takes 2 or 3 cycles to dry


A Whirlpool dryer either heats or doesn't heat . This problem is an indication of a blocked vent hose , from the rear of the dryer to the outside vent outlet . Try removing the vent hose from the back of the dryer and dry a load , to verify this problem . Wet lint inside the hose also means the air cannot escape to the outside .

My dryer takes almost 2 hours to dry a normal load of clothes.


You have a clogged vent , or kinked vent hose , or the hose to the outside ( possibly in the wall ) , is clogged with lint . A dryer , either heats , or doesn't heat . The venting , is what causes the excess timing , for the clothes to dry .

Whirlpool Dryer- Model #YLEQ5000PW0, does not get hot enough to dry clothes and makes a ckicking noice when the drum rotates. What do you think the problem is?


if you have any heat than your element is good,the reason it take's so long to dry the clothe's is due to a blockage,first you nead to look behind the dryer with out moving it to see if the vent hose is pinched off,next try running the dryer with out the vent hose hooked up,if it dry's well than you have a blockage some were between were the vent hose hook's up to the dryer and vent outside.you nead to check the roller's for the clicking noice.

Excessive moisture inside dryer and not drying in timely manner.


Either your vent hose is kinked behind the dryer , or the vent line is stopped up . Pull the dryer out and remove the vent hose . Dry a load or 2 of clothes ( the first load will remove any humidity ) and it should dry normal . This will tell you if the vent line is restricted .
