Re: whirlpool roper dryer

The biggest problem dryers face is a clogged vent. if you have a flex hose make sure its not kinked. take off the hose from the back of the dryer and feel if the air is coming thru when running. check the outside make sure it isn't blocked or any animal has caled it home.

Too long to dry

When you say too long I assume the dryer does heat simple trick disconnect exhaust tube from dryer at bottom run a cycle room will get hot if dryer drys correctly then you have a restriction in the exhaust, dryer has to be able to breath just like a muffler on a car a restriction will cause the heat circuit of the dryer to cycle on/off on the hi limit instead of the cycling thermistor which will give you a long dry time hope this helps

Whirlpool Dryer GEW9200LW1 skip digits when set to dry


If the clothing comes out dry within a normal time,usually 40 minutes or less. Whats happening is the computer is recatulacting the time remaining to dry a load of clothes as it senses they may still not completly dry or even will drop off some time if clotes are dry before time computer calculated at start of cycle.

Whirlpool dryer does not get hot enough to dry clothes.

Clean/repair the dryer vent. If the airflow is restricted the result is the one you just described.

Good luck,

My Roper elictric dryer is not drying clothes

If you are experiencing longer dry times and/or poor drying efficiency, the following link can give you some tihings to check before assuming there is a malfunction with your dryer:

The number one cause of dryer heat related problems is poor exhaust ventilation. If not vented properly, a dryer will not dry efficiently, will take longer than required to dry, and will cause the heating circuits to overheat to the point of failure. The dryer will actually seem hotter as the heating circuits begin to overheat. This is also the source of many fire hazards if not resolved. Read through the link provided and review some of the potential causes. Hopefully, this may save you a service call. If you check everything and still have poor heating issues, please let me know. You may have an internal bias or hi-limit thermostat malfunctioning.

Roper electric dryer. Clothes not drying. Temp ok/timer not?

I would supect a faulty high limit thermostat. This small round device is mounted to a metal plate and attached to the internal ductwork. It can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Test for continuity. It should have none. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Dryer has some heat but is taking a long time to dry clothes

This type of problem can be caused by a partially burnt heating element, a blown thermal fuse, or a faulty high limit thermostat. All of these components can be checked using an ohm meter or multimeter. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

Maytag LDG 712 shuts off before clothes are dry.

First, The most common part would be the over limit safety, it will be mounted to the element housing. Second, there is a thermal fuse usually a small disk with a little fuse inside. You can find these (with your model no.) at .Good luck.

Warm air but clothes not drying

Make sure u have seleced the high heat setting..The fact that it is heating more or less indicates that the element is o/k.
Check and clean any filter(s) that u can see,it is more likely to be a thermostat problem than anything else. and there are at least 2 of them, also check line voltage is correct.
Plz rate this solution.

Not drying

I know you cleaned the lint vent but your vent hose is clogged or damaged and there is no air exchange thru the dryer Air can only hold 100% humidity. You could dry your clothes for 10 hours but the air in the dryer is saturated with water and can not hold anymore so your clothes wont dry. Check behind your dryer and Ill bet the vent line is damaged. The problem is the air is not getting out of the dryer. Check the flapper at the end of the vent line. With the dryer running go to the end of the vent hose and there will be no air coming thru.

Dryer Heating But Not Drying!!!

if its not heating at all the thermal is the most likely culprit and it was the little plastic piece you seen now if you have a meter set it to continuity and pull one of the wires off the thermal limiter and check it if it reads open its bad same with the heating element let me know now if the heater and thermal limiter are good pull the blower motor vent and check it for blockage
