You may have a defective timer, or worse a defective motor. the door switch may also be defective, you require a basic knowledge of motors switches and timers, and require a volt/ ohm meter to diagnose properly

How do you dry clothes in this machine please


A fairly common problem! The official instructions are

Before using your dryer, wipe the dryer drum with a damp cloth to
remove dust from storing and shipping.
1. Load clothes loosely into the dryer and close the door. Do not
pack the dryer. Allow space for clothes to tumble freely.
2. Turn the Cycle Control knob to the recommended cycle for the type of load being dried. Use the Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (,) to dry most heavyweight and medium weight loads. See "Drying, Cycle, and Temperature Tips."
3. Select a temperature setting on models with a Temp/Fabric selector. The cycle descriptions include temperature setting suggestions.
4. Push the START button.

Stopping and Restarting
You can stop your dryer any time during a cycle.
To stop your dryer
Open the dryer door or turn the Cycle Control knob to OFE
NOTE: The Cycle Control knob should point to an Off area when
the dryer is not in use.
To restart your dryer
1. Close the door.
2. Select a new cycle and temperature (if desired).
3. Press START

Why doesn't my dryer dry clothes?


You can find the Installation Instructions and your owner's manual here: http://www.kmart.com/whirlpool-duet-174-7.4-cu-ft-he-gas-dryer/p-02692332000P The links are about halfway down the page and are in red. There are instructions for cleaning the lint screen, which if clogged, will effect the drying time. Hope this helps.

The dryer does not pass 6 min mark and does not shut off. How would I test a humidity sensor? Thank you for help.


A dryer moisture sensor can stop working without notice, until you notice your clothes being over dried or still wet at the end of the cycle. It is a good practice to test the dryer moisture sensor periodically. There are two types of moisture-detecting sensors for dryers. Once you understand how they work you will see how to test each one.
1. Sensor BarThese sensors contain digits that protrude outwardly. They work on an electrical current and the moisture from the clothing.
The first step to test is to place completely dry clothes in the dryer and turn on the dryer; it should run for a few moments and then shut down right away.
Secondly, place damp clothes into the dryer, turn on the dryer and watch the timer. As the clothes begin to dry the timer will move and shut off.
2. ThermostatThe timer is regulated by the thermostat. The thermostat rests in a closed position. To test this type of moisture sensor, place damp clothes in the dryer. Watch the timer; as the clothes begin to dry, the thermostat should open and the timer will move forward ,eventually shutting off.

Not drying clothes


Check your yellow pages for an appliance repairman. If your unit is revolving but not getting hot, you need service.

Lint on Clothes


When you wash clothes, they lose fibers from the agitator and unfortunately when you hang dry them the fibers from eachother or other articles of clothing stick to it making them look like they have lint on them. Drying them in the dryer removes this lint. I suggest drying them in the dryer and to prevent wrinkles hang them as soon as possible after dryer stops other than that I know of no solution in the wash for this problem. Good Luck.

More dry/less dry setting on atlantis dryer


The more dry less dry settings are basically how much heat you want to use. This is the sensor drying. There is a moister sensor in the dryer that senses the moister on the clothing. When it senses no more moister it will shut off and tell you your clothes are done. The trick with this is that you want to make sure you don't mix your heavy clothing with your light stuff. A t-shirt will dry much faster then jeans and it will sense that the shirt is dry and shut off. I put mine on about the second or third line on the more dry setting and my clothes come out fine. If you are mixing your clothing just put it around the third line. It all really depends on what is being dried. If it's heavy set it for more, if it's socks and such set it lower. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful for you. Good luck.

Dryer is leaving brown streaks on cotton clothes


To all victims of the brownish colored streak marks: I share your frustration!!! I have the same problem with my dryer which started when my dryer was only 3 or 4 years old - - totally unacceptable for an expensive top of the line dryer! A repair guy showed me how the brownish streak marks come from the felt liner which goes around the drum. Look inside your dryer for the beige or tan colored felt which sticks out around the circular drum. If you rub the felt with an old white t-shirt or paper towel, you will see the same brownish colored marks. My repairman recommended getting the felt replaced eventually, but until then, he gave me the following tips which really help avoid getting the streaks: For white or light colored clothes susceptible to the brownish streak marks: I dry these items as part of a very lightweight dryer load - with just a few other lightweight items. By doing a small lightweight load, clothing is less likely to get caught up & rub against the felt edges. For example, I dry 4 light colored men's dress shirts with 2 or 3 other lightweight shirts. OR for white or light colored athletic "dry fit" type athletic apparel, I dry 6 - 8 total lightweight shirts/shorts. If I throw my white Nike top or white pair of summer pants into the dryer with all my "whites", they will be doomed to getting brownish streaks due to the heavy load pushing them against the darned felt liner! Whenever possible, I wash susceptible items on permanent press to avoid wrinkling, then hang dry. Prior to putting these clothes in the dryer, I also "pre-clean" the felt with an old white cotton t-shirt by reaching into the dryer and rubbing along the felt edges until I'm not getting as much brownish color on the t-shirt rag. For a permanent fix, call a repairman or see the following do-it-yourself YouTube video on "Dryer Repair - Replacing the Lower Front Drum Felt Seal": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XoYP_YsGP68 . I have a repair person coming today to fix 2 other appliances, so I'm finally getting my dryer fixed, and I will post an update soon.
