HI. thanks for the question. the motor seems to be at fault here. did you clean the venting from the dryer to the outside. , did you clean the lint inside the dryer. if not do that, thanks.

SOURCE: condenser dryer not getting clothes dry

There must be one or two circuit breakers, usually at the back of the dryer, check them out.

If this does not fix the problem, then possible faults are the thermistor or the heating element.

Most likely you will need to have the heating element replaced.

If you decide to call a technician you can use the phone number listed on the owner manual.

You can find parts and diagrams here.

Make sure that the vents are cleaned to include outside. Where it hook on to the dryer make sure that the housing is cleaned also. That should take care of the problem. Thankyou and if you need more help let us know.

SOURCE: Whirlpool AWZ 7303 tumbling but not drying.

blower wheels will get loose in dryers. Sometimes they will get a whole lump of lint in them or you can hear a rattling noise in the dryer, this is the blower wheel, its worn out and it can cause the fuse to blow too,or it can half *** work and take fifty forever's to dry the clothes.Or it could be just that the dryer needs a good blowing out .I use a lawn blower to get all the lint out of the dryer as well as the vent pipe and vent to outside. I take the filter HOUSING out and wash it also. That is, I remove the housing and clean is good! Making sure that the dryer is properly flowing air is a good thing!

Keeps shutting off before clothes are dried


Most drying issue's are House vent related, Make sure its clean and strait as possible, and use metal venting only. Also make sure the vent hood on the outside of the house is clean and opening.

If your dryer is newer, make sure you not mixing loads, sometimes if you are drying cottons with heavier jeans, the cottons will dry faster and hit the moisture sensor and causing the dryer to turn off.

Why my Whrilpool Drier AWZ 555 is not drying the clothes and power light is blinking?


Check to make sure it's getting full 240vac power. Some or most driers are fed from two breakers in the box. If one is tripped you aren't getting enough power. That could be causing the blinking light. Also check for enough exhaust flow to prevent overheating.

Whirlpool AWZ 410 washer dryer is not generating any hot air when drying. The dryer drum is tumbling but with cool air only.


Unplug the unit and take the top with the screws holding the lid on. Take a look at all of the wires on the top of the machine. You might notice broken/burnt wires on the safeties that are close to or that directly activate the heating element located in the blower housing located at the top of this washer/dryer condensing unit.

My whirlpool awz 231 does not dry clothes,i take the back of the machine and test for continuity at both the thermostats and the element,all seems fine,i start a warm cycle and it works for about 15/20...


Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.
