Whirlpool Tumble dryer low heat, taking three cycles to dry one load


This caused by one of two possible things. Either you have poor air flow, or a clogged vent preventing air from flowing freely and therefor making the dryer short cycle, which in turn will take you two or three times to dry yor clothes, or the heating element has gone bad, burnt in half and is making contact with the case to provide it just enough power to barely heat. The second thing is a very rare occurance. I would turn the dryer on, find out where the air vents out to, and with the dryer running, go to where it vents and check to see if there is a strong flow of air. 9 times out of 10 that is going to be your problem. Another way to check air flow is to just pull the vent off the back and let the dryer run and see if your clothes dry faster. If you do it that way and they still take a long time to dry, then you'll probably need to replace the heating element

No heat when drying


Hi there,

Well it's for us to answer if you provide the model number anyway if it's a gas dryer and if your dryer tumbles, but there is no heat then you may please check out the following -
1. First of all you can check out for proper air flow - Check the vent for proper air flow by placing your hand over the exterior vent while the dryer is running. You should feel a strong flow of air. If not then check the lint trap. It is located either on top of the dryer or possibly just inside the door. Remove any lint that has built up in the lint trap. Cleaning the lint trap should be done regularly, even as often as after every load. Do not operate the dryer without a lint trap in place.
2. Secondly you can check out the Ignitor - gas dryer blows air through a burner assembly to heat the air. The burner assembly consists essentially of a gas valve, ignitor and a flame sensor. If any part of the burner assembly malfunctions, the result will be low or no heat and slow drying of the clothes. Post comments for further help or information.....

Good Luck!!

Our Bosch Ventless AXXIS Dryer system is overheating causing the sensor to sound. It is not drying properly either. Can you troubleshoot??


Overheating is most probably caused by low air flow past the heating element. High air flow would not allow the air to overheat. Check to be sure the fan is rotatingn freely and then check the heating element/wires for dirt or other obstructions. We were having "burning" problems that were revealed to be an errant latex glove that excaped from my wife's pants pocket during an earlier drying cycle. When it hit the elements, it began to cause a scortching smell and partially melted. In this instance, the air flow about the element was restricted and the reamining air overheated and the sensor sounded. When the sensor sounds, heating ceases and you will get non-uniform drying. I picked off the pieces of the glove from the wires and except for an unrelated drive belt breaking, we have not had problems.

The dryer doesnt get hot enough to dry clothes


Pull the dryer out and remove the lint hose . Turn on the dryer and feel if there is good air flow and if you feel heat . If there is good air flow and heat , dry a load of clothes , to see if they dry normally .
If there is not good air flow , then the blower wheel is probably stripped and needs to be replaced . If there is good air flow and heat , then the problem is in the vent ducting , between the dryer and to where it vents to the outside . Dryer could be pushed back too far , causing the hose to " kink " , restricting the air flow to the outside .
Remember , a dryer either heats or doesn't heat . If no heat , then a dryer problem exists . If heat , but dryer does not dry , then a vent problem is the cause ( except for maytag , which the blower wheel sometimes strips out ) .

NO HEAT WHEN CLOTHES ARE ADDED


Check to see if vent hose is not restricted. If it goes up inside wall, it could have lint clogging it. Most dryers regulate heat with air flow. Wet clothes can restrict flow even more if vent is clogged or pinched. Air flow is crucial to heat cycle. If the vent is resrticted, heat will rise quickly, but not cool down fast enough to allow heat thermostat to cool down and turn on heating element again. It may seem hot inside dryer but if no air flow it will increase dry time or not dry them at all before timer shuts off. If vent goes up inside wall, buy a small chimney brush and try cleaning out vent from attic if you can.
