Whirlpool gas dryer takes longer to dry though it heats up and turns, yet it has a humming/buzzing noise. What could be the problem?


Had the same problem. There was a bit of a kink in the vent duct which caused lint to build up in duct and also inside the dryer itself over years. I replaced the duct and took dryer apart and cleaned out the air passages.It works great now. As for the humming, mine started about 2 1/2 years ago and I still don't know why.

I have a whirlpool gas dryer, 4 years old. i


It sounds like the heating filament below the drum has either fried one of the fuses down there, or has some lint or something fallen on to it.
Did you notice if the drum still heated up? If it did, then its a bit trickier to completely ID what went wrong. If it no longer heats up now, then the thermal cut-off fuse has been blown and will need to be replaced (most common problem with a dryer)
Typically, once it is unplugged, you can open up the panel below the door (there are normally a couple of latches along the top gap that you need to push in with a couple of screwdrivers to open). Once open, you should see a heating coil that provides the hot air to the drum, look to see if there is anything in contact with the coil. If there is something there, remove it. If not, then continue below.
Now, if your dryer has stopped heating up, you need to pull the coil and replace the thermal cut-off fuse (or get someone in to do it for you). If it was still heating up, you can start the dryer with the panel open (make sure everyone and everything is well clear of the opening) and see where it is smoking from.

Gas Dryer won't produce heat


Hi, thanks for the inquiry.

It's most likely a thermal fuse. Basically, the voltage has to go through the fuse before it goes to the ignitor.
It should only cost you about $90 to repair if a technician comes out to fix a fuse.
I wouldn't try to repair it unless you have some knowledge of electrics. If your dryer is less than 12 years old, I would recommend you fix it. Hope this helps.

Best of luck :)
