Question about Whirlpool Dryers
My dryer (LHE6900W0)is heating up but isn't drying the clothes. Timer also only works in timed drying and have checked the vent. Timer will also move (in timed cycle) even when dryer is not actually running if put in that cycle, along with dryer heating up before button to turn it on actually pushed to start drying. Any help? I was going to purchase a lint brush to clean out the dryer also, but this just started within the past week. Need 2 hours to dry a normal load.
I would be REALLY suspicious of the exhaust vent. If the dryer is heating up and the drum is turning, it has to dry the clothes UNLESS there is no air going through the dryer. Disconnect the air outlet flexible plastic duct at the back of the unit, and turn it on. If there is no or very little air coming out, the inside of the unit will be plugged with lint. If there is lots of air coming out, the exhaust duct or the outside flapper will be plugged. Sometimes if the exhaust is routed through a cold space there will be so much condensation in the duct that it will droop and literally fill up with water.
