Question about Whirlpool Dryers
Most of the time, the problem is:
1. a plugged vent system.
2. broken heating elements or
3. a bad thermostat.
To check the venting system, turn the machine on and check for a strong air flow where the dryer exits the house, outside. If there is weak or no air flow, you may have an obstruction in the ducting, at the drter, or at the louvered vent in the wall to the outside. Unplug the dryer and remove the duct. Holding it like a "U", take it outside and shake it out. Look ate the wall vent; clean as necessary. Look into the dryer exhaust, remove any debris found there. Pull the lint trap and inspect the cavity. Vacuum out any debris. Replace the ducting.
If this doesn't fix you. Check your heating elements. If you have an electrical test meter and know how to use it, gain access to your heating element terminals inside the back panel, and test for continuity. Replace any defective heating elements. They are readily available from any appliance parts supply house.
If this still doesn't solve your problem, test and/or replace the thermostat as required.
Hope this was useful to you!
