Question about Whirlpool Dryers
The reason you are not getting the cloths dry after 60 minutes and are just as wet is airflow or rather the lack thereof.
First verify that you dryer is actually starting, (I know... you're thinking, duh!) but simple things first. Let the dryer run on high heat for about 2 minutes and open the door. See if there's actually heat coming out of the door. If there is, that's a good sign. Did the drum seem to be tumbling? if yes, this also is a good sign.
Next turn the dryer to fluff/no heat and turn it on. Go outside and check the dryer vent (if possible) and see if there is a reasonable amount of airflow coming out. Most likely it will be weak (since your cloths aren't drying.) Now that you have checked that, go inside, disconnect the dryer hose on the back of the dryer. Compare the airflow from the outside vent. If it is considerably stronger than outside, your ducting needs cleaned. If it is about the same and still weak, something is blocking airflow in your dryer.
Here's a decision point. If you feel you don't want to try to fix the dryer yourself, get someone qualified or take it to a qualified maintenance shot for the dryer. If you feel up to the task, FIRST unplug the dryer, then you'll have to disassemble the dryer (can't give you specifics without the model number) and find the clog and remove it. Once the clog is removed (very likely lots of lint and maybe even a sock or two) reassemble the dryer, hook the vent hose back up, plug it in, try to dry your cloths.
Hope that helps
