Question about Whirlpool CSP2761 Gas Commercial Dryer

Drying time taking to long

I have a whirl pool gold dryer /seneon.It use to dry very well in short time and now it takes an extra 60 to 90 minutes to dry.There is no abstructions in the dryer or vent hose all the way out to exit.I noticed in the dark (best way to see the glow coils work)that the heating emements turn off prematurly and takes a while to come back on I'm having the same problem with 2 sets of stack dryers. There doesn't seem to be a lint buildup that I can see, the gas cycles on and off so it does get hot so I am baffled. I've got the same dryer, home version, at my house and it is 13 years old and works flawlessly. Maybe that is not a valid comparison since these get more use but they are 8 years old. What can I check?

My dryer takes forever to dry anything and often times will not turn on when i press start after it's been ran for a 70 minute cycle but will turn itself on after sitting for awhile my dryer is

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

What is automatic dry miser

What the automatic dry miser is, is a sensor that measure how dry the clothes are and will adjust the time its going to take to dry the clothes throughout the entire cycle. If at the beginning it estimate it will take 40 minutes to sry a load but they are dry in only 25 minutes the dryer knows the clothes are dry and cuts the dryer off. Saving 15 minutes of unneeded gas and electric that it would run and waste power and gas since the clothes were dry already.

Sometimes dryer will heat right, next time it won't

You more than likely have a buildup of lint in the vent hose. Even what looks like not much lint in there can cause the dryer to have issues drying the clothes. Clear the hose out really well, take it outside and shake it all out, then hook it back up and give it a shot. If that doesnt work you may have a bad thermal fuse which regulates the dryer temperature and you will need to have it replaced.

My whirl pool dryer has to be turned on bout 3 to 4 times

Ok, check the exhaust hose for obstructions. make sure the blower assembly is not clogged and, the hose is clear of any debris. the exhaust hose should blow out hot air forcefully. if the force of the air isn't blowing hard, it will not create a suitable drying environment for the element. this poor ventilation will also damage the heating element or burner Assembly.

Now, if there is sufficient air flow out of the exhaust hose, this will confirm control failure. replace the dryness sensor and control board in this case.

Here's a quick way to test for clogs. take the hose of the backside of the dryer then, start the cycle. if the drum sorts to become hot after a few minutes with the exhaust hose removed form the back of the unit, this will confirm a major block in the hose or blower assembly.

Dryer takes long time to dry clothes

Remove the rear connecting vent and try a load at 45 minutes time dry. If it dries correct the vent blockage problem.
If not, let me know for step 2.

Clothes take longer to dry

The first thing to check on would be your ventillation. Check at the outside of the house to make sure you have a strong amount of airflow coming out of the vent. Should blow pretty hard. If not you need to get your vents cleaned and also make sure the duct behind the dryer is not crushed. Hope this helps. Dave
