Question about Dryers

1 Answer

My whirlpool dryer kicks my breaker after running for about 40 minutes, the clothes are not dry yet when it kicks the breaker. It does this on the high and medium settings both. My husband replaced the "pigtail" and the 220 outlet it plugs into.

Check your circuit breakers.Most of the time when breakers get older they can't hold the current load. Also make sure the wires that connect to the breakers in the main panel are tight in that circuit..Be careful I had a dryer that did the same thing. Check to make sure the lint is cleaned out so there is no obstructions that's creating a air flow problem. The dryer gets to hot and shuts down.Well that was my problem.Just an idea.

Whirlpool wed4815ew1. Timed Dry works, timer advances. Automatic Dry does not. Plenty of heat, clothes dry fine. Bought new timer W10185982 STILL doesn't advance


Hello David. We regret to hear about your Dryer not working on select cycles. We recommend disconnecting power from the breaker for at least a minute and then turning the breaker back on to do a master reset on the Dryer. If that does not help then we can only recommend service. If you would like for us to schedule service for you, can you please email us your address, phone number, the model and serial number, the website you were contacted on, Fixya, your review ID, and date of purchase to Whirlpool_Digital@whirlpool.com.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Electric dryers aren't very complicated. Here are some common symptoms that you may experience with your dryer:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
There's no heat
It won't tumble
Drying is too slow
It overheats
It seems to run forever
It's noisy
It won't start
The light doesn't work
It blows fuses or trips the circuit breaker
My clothes smell bad!
My clothes are marked or torn

What is automatic dry miser


Hello,
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.

Whirlpool Dryer GEW9200LW1 skip digits when set to dry


Hello,

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.

The clothes take forever to dry. Even with the more Dry cycle the clothes are wet after 40+ minutes The timing changes from 40 minutes then to one hour+.....


Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance.
