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...

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 .

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.

My dryer will only dry on certain settings. It won't dry on auto anymore. After it runs a while it gets hot and stops, it won't run on any setting. After it cools it will run a while but it takes hours to...


Check your vent on the outside of the house! If you do not have a lot of air passing through the vent, the dryer will overheat and can ruin the thermostats and the heating element. Clean the vent out and check to make sure the vent hose is not pinched causing a restriction. If the vent is blowing forceful air, then it could be a thermostat but I doubt it. If it does not run in auto when it's cold, chances are that your timer is faulty.

DRYER TAKES LONGER TO DRY


you could have restricted airflow from the lint screen not being cleaned, a bad blower wheel, or a bad thermostat. take the vent hose off the back and check to see if the air flows out the dryer with good force, if so your vent is probably clogged or not open in the wall. the vent hose may also be picned off from puching the dryer back to far.

Clothes Not Drying well


HI, Check the following to address this issue further.

Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat. These thermostats are located in the dryer vent duct and sometimes mounted on the blower assembly as well.

My dryer whirlpool wed5300sq0 is getting hot but clothes arent dry


I suspect you have a blocked air vent. A blocked vent will definitely extend your drying time. You may even find yourself having to run a load twice to get it fully dried. One way to confirm this is to disconnect the vent hose from the back of your dryer and dry one load with the machine venting directly into your laundry room. If that load dries quickly then you know the problem is a blocked vent. Most vents get blocked by lint near their exit to the outside. There's usually a screen at this location to prevent small animals from crawling into your house. Often this screen gets clogged with lint. Most vents are designed to allow removal and cleaning of this screen from the outside.

Dryer not drying clothes


Make sure that the flex hose going out from the dryer is not blocked. You should check it from both the back of the dryer and all the way to wear it vents outside. It could also be the thermostat, which is cheaper to replace than buying a new dryer.
