SOURCE: clothes dryer

washer dryer and dryer ony machines differ in a huge way. the big diff. is the drums on each are completly different sizes. the conventional dryer has the bigger, giving better air flow and tumble to clothes. the w/d has a smaller drum thus less air flow and less tumble between clothes. the best way to see this effect is remove half the clothes after a wash and then select a drying cycle. u will see that by giving the clothes more room to tumble free of each other rather than tumbling in a large ball will dry them. washer dryers are really only a marketing tool.

SOURCE: MAYTAG GAS DRYER TUMBLES BUT NO HEAT (FRONT LOADER 6 YRS. OLD)

Hello maryfitgera,
It certainly sounds like you are not getting a flame established in your dryer. That can be one of several components such as a non-resettable thermal fuse, gas valve assembly or control relay to that gas valve assembly. Unless you are well versed on how to work on these kinds of components, I suggest you just call in an appliance tech or.. let me know if you want to attempt diagnosing and repairing it yourself. Be advised that there are elements of danger in so doing. Let me know how you want to procede on this and I'd be happy to walk you thru it..
Regards,
Rick

SOURCE: my dryer is destroying my clothes,

There is a gap between the lip of the drum, and the dryer housing. Usually the gap is not large enough for clothes to get caught up..
I think the drum should be removed, and the drum bearings checked for excessive wear. This can cause it. There are like 6 rubbing blocks at the front, that the lip of the dryer runs on. This is what I mean by bearings. There will also be a single drum bearing at the back of the drum, check this also for wear or damage.
Hope this helps.

My boy put his weight on the dryer door while taking clothes out of it. Now it won't stay closed, it keeps popping open. The whirlpool dryer is 6 months old, It's not the latch.


Place dryer on the floor
put car jack under the opened dryer door and gentle lift the door in the opposite direction with the child sitting on the dryer when placed on the floor. Experiment - A little bit at a time test door until latch works again.
Be careful not to damage the door with too much jacking / lifting.
May want to place a piece of timber between top of jack and door to minimize damaging the door.

Dryer door won't stay open while removing clothes


Likely the feet to the dryer are not level. Grab a large level and check to ensure the top front is level across.

If your door opens to the right, raise the front left foot by screwing it counterclockwise. Check level, and repeat.

Mirror the operation for a door that swings to the left.

Whirpool dryer model wed9400swo the dryer door pops open


This usually occurs when the load is too large, causing the cloths to push the door open. If this is not the case, you should replace the door latch mechanism, which is what keeps the door closed.

The dryer door always pops open stopping the dryer... how do I make it stay shut so the clothes will get dry without having to close the door every other minute?


Try putting less of a load in dryer. The weight of the clothes riding against the door, may be the reason why it pops open.

During the drying cycle, the dryer door opens


Chances are the little plastic latch keep is broken. Look at the door and locate a peice that will press into the front area where the clothes go in.
Once you see it, check the keeper and see if it is broken. The door should not just pop open.

Dryer works for few minutes then stops


clothes can open the door if door latch is weak, causing door opening and stopping the cycle, or a bad automatic sensor

Dryer door pops open. leaves burn marks on clothes.


check to see if you have bent door hinges first, do this by opening the door all the way down and see if it is level with the floor. if it goes past level then the hinges are bent.
guess someone may have fell on the door or used it as a step.
if so, then you can take a hand towel and roll it up, then put it at the bottom of the door and close the door gently to "bend" the hinges back into place. this will aloow the door to stay closed and should also take care of the "burn" marks on your clothes.
i would guess the unit was overheating from the door not closing right allowing air to enter around the door. that will cause the unit to overheat and leave marks on your clothes.
