You either have an element out or your t-stats are out. You have a thermal fuse also that could go out. On most dryers, if the t-stat goes out, you should replace all the t-stats and thermal fuse. Pull the element out first and if there are no visible breaks or burn marks on the coils, it's not the element. Call or email us and we will be sure to get the proper parts right out to you asap.

Hope this works for you.

Gas dryer will heat but won't dry clothing


You may have a clogged air vent, check that the air vent hose is not smashed, if it is not smashed, have your dryer vent cleaned professionally, and recheck the dryer operation, dryer vents should be cleaned every other year for optimum performance.

Maytag Centennial Dryer (MEDC400VW) not drying properly


First of all, please make sure the vent is clear all the way through. Next the vent must be straight as possible. Next it can not be to long. People think that because they feel the air outside the vent is clear, not always true. The vent can be partially clogged. So make sure. Next, if the vent hose has sags or bows and even tight turns. It can accumulate the moisture in it from the drying proceed. If water has collected in the vent hose the clothes will not dry properly. If the vent is to long it can not dry properly either, the blower on the dryer can only move air so far. So the shorter the better. If all of these requirements are meet. Then, I would have to start checking the thermostats. I hope I have helped you. Please respond if you need further assistance.

My Whirlpool dryer tumbles but no heat. The clothes dry after along period of time and that is when i finally feel some heat.


Probably needs a good cleaning. If it was me I would remove the filter housing and do a through cleanup. make sure the vent going outside is not blocked. The dryer must have adequate airflow to work well.

Dryer Model LER3624JQ0 tumbles clothes, has heat, but clothes are hot and damp. Cleaned lint filter & took of vent in back (thought maybe clogged wall vent) but didn't help. Don't think much (if any)...


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Whirlpool dryer model #GEW9250PT1 not drying properly


when was the last time you cleaned your dryer?all a dryer does is move air around and if it can't cycle through the dryer the clothes won't dry. unplug the dryer and then you need to clean the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is and clean out the vent line,if the vent line is a long run from the back of dryer to the outside vent i use a leaf blower to clean it out,make sure the outside vent is clear first then blow it out,if it's a short run vac it out,most problems start just from lint buildup,the clothes don't dry the dryer runs hot and parts start messin up,also vac out under your fridge,take the bottom kick plate off and vac it out,you can kill the compreesor if you don't,good luck

Wed9200sq0 heats, tumbles but does not dry at any heat setting


You are correct. Pull the dryer out and disconnect your venting from the back of the dryer. Turn your dryer on and check to make sure your dryer is blowing air out of the dryer duct. If it is then leave your dryer out at least 2 ft from the wall and run a load of clothes through the dryer. If it dries your clothes normally then you have a venting restriction. Check to make sure your venting is clean, not kinked or smashed, make sure your outside vent is opening an doesn.t have something blocking it. Check your lint screen filter by running water through it. If water is not flowing through it, you have a build up of fabric softener on your screen, blocking air flow. Scrub your screen off and test again. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

I have a Whirlpool Model LGR5620KQ Heat Problem ....


Here's a site that shows exploded view parts diagrams for your model, which can be useful when working on it. --> http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=LGR5620KQ&searchTerm=&RefineSearch=0 A dryer needs two things, heat & airflow. If you have the heat, look for a kinked vent hose or a blocked vent louver where it blows outside the house. If that doesn't help, write more and we'll keep trying.
