First how old is unit ??? new to you??? a few things to check on your part, for better results run the hot water in your sink b4 you start your d/w. are you using a rinse agent (Rinse Aid) newer machines actually count on this for better drying. is everything soaking wet as if never attempted to dry or are certain items not drying. for example Tupperware, plastics( sippey cups), and some silverware may not ever come dry. newer d/w heat the dish to a certain temp and then rely on the residual heat of the dish to evaporate its own water, and obviously plastics can never be heated to that temp (and certain silverware metal) si the never completely dry. in not saying you dont have a heater issue, but check into these few things first. The heater can be check with a simple continuity test.The heater leads are directly under and behind unit.Sometimes just a visual inspection of heate will deem it bad

The dryer for the dishes on the whirpool doesn't come on


My God? If you had it installed yesterday.....1) read the manual. 2) try again and 3) Call store you bought it from and/or Whirlpool for warranty Service Call.
Why if you bought something new would you post here for a obvious operation or Warranty performance issue?

During a drying cycle, the whirlpool duet dryer door pops open, the indicators are flashing and even if I close and restart the cycle, the door pops open every few minutes.


This was a concern on some whirlpool and kenmore dryers. The fix was to replace both of the catches (the part on the dryer front panel ) and the latches (the part on the door) as well as a redesigned door gasket. Im sure if you contact Whirlpool customer assistance they would be able to supply you with a part number for the repair kit....

Have a whirlpool cabrio gas dryer. It takes several hours to dry one load of clothes. The clothes seem to stay damp towels may take all day... what could be the problem


Have you opened the door while its running to see if its warm inside (heater working) If its getting warm and still not drying the clothes properly you likley have a air circulation concern. With the unit running check the exhaust vent outside from dryer it should have a good flow of warm air, if not you have a restriction sowher between the unit and outside. Heat alone will take forever to dry clothing,you need good air circulation to remove the moisture from the clothes otherwise all you will end up with is warm moist clothing.This generaly happens over a long period of time and then all of a sudden you realize the dryer is not working like it use to..Hope this helps you with your concern.....

Dryer


Had the same problem and the answer is to stop putting plastic in the machine ! It seems the dishwashers need the heat radiated from the Ceramic plates, stell knives etc to help dry. The plastic simply absorbs some water and then your dishwahser spends most of its drying time trying to get that water out again. Also Plastic doesn't radiate any heat to help. As soon as we stopped putting plastic plates and tupperware containers in, hey presto the dishes are drying again

How to clean black marks left in dryer from shoes


I had used a little nail polish remover on the marks when this happen. Then I wiped it out with a cloth after I was through doing the dishes ( had dish detergent on it) and a rinse cloth and dried. I then always let the shoes/boots air dry or you could put them in a pillow case to dry. Good Luck!
(You should have seen the mess I had with a melted blue crayon one day!) Got that out too-but it took me a while.

Not drying clothes


The timer is the principal initiator of this unit. if it is not moving, this will confirm that there is a major issue that concerns the timer motor. This damaged timer mechanism should be replaced asap.
