Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Whirlpool duet electric clothes dryer

Our dryer takes FOREVER to dry a load of clothes! It used ot take 40 minutes for an average load, now it takes 2 hours. We are now venting to an inside system (vent to a bucket of water, basically) after a repair man charged $75 to tell us the vent system was too long, so that's not the problem. We replaced the heating element, and dryer is getting hot inside, so that's not it. Hate to call another repair man if it's something simple... HELP!

Kenmore 500 dryer used to dry a full load of cloths in 1 regular cycle of about 40 to 50 minutes. Now the same cloths are taking nearly 2 hours to dry.

I think I would check and see if the dryer vent tube is clogged or nearly clogged. It sounds to me like it is. Try this first, if its not, I will continue to try and solve this with you.

you are using a dry sensor and you may not have enough cloths in it to justify running on dry sensor, try timed drying

Whirlpool Duet Sport Dryer front load leaks water underneath the dryer when drying heavy duty clothes

The clothes then are too wet for the heat to evaporate. Spin extra time to get rid of as much water as possible before putting them in dryer.

My whirpool dryer (Duet) seems to always take (2) cycles to dry...After the first cycle the clothes are still very damp.

Your dryer may be pushed too far back , causing the vent hose to kink , behind the dryer . Also , check the outside vent airflow , and check the lint screen holder , for any peeled off lint , which could also be blocking the outside air flow .

Dryer not drying

look at the vent outside and see if it closing or even has a cover this allows cold air inside the dryer and cause it to take longer to dry

My whirlpool duet dryer is taking 3 cycles to dry????

have you checked your lint trap to make sure that it is clean after every load? Also the lint vent to the outside may be clogged and will not let the dryer vent like it should. This is dangerous. So check and replace if needed.

Can I make the water level on my whirlpool duet washer higher?

its because of the design of the machine they are water efficient.a front load uses any where from 15 to 18 gals. compared to 40 to 50 gals.for a top load. they also have a higher spin rate than the top loader,therefore making your close dryer and having a less drying time in the efficient too!!
