Question about GE Profile Harmony DPGT750EC Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Air is coming out but no heat

I have checked my gas line and it is flowing, but there is no heat coming out. It takes 2-3 cycles to dry clothes because only cold air is blowing out. It has an electric pilot light (like a gas stove) so there I can't check to see or light the pilot light myself. Is there any way to fix this without calling for repair? Or if you think it is something else, please advise.
Thanks,
Joe

I have a gas dryer that when cycle begins it heats but after a while it stops heating and it takes too long for clothes to dry...Why is this happening?


I would check the the vent hose first. It might be clogged with lint or stopped up some other way or even crimped where the air won't flow. Turn on the dryer and go outside and be sure there is a good flow of air coming out of the vent. If there's not much air flow dis connect the hose and clean it out

Needs two cycles to dry clothes!


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

Whirlpool dryer is not drying properly. Have to go through a couple of cycles to dry clothes.


2 things are needed to dry clothes. 1 is good air flow. Check to make sure that the dryer vent is not clogged or partially clogged with lint. Also make sure there are no kinks in the vent hose. With the dryer running you should feel good air flow blowing out of the outside house vent. The 2nd thing a dryer needs heat. Check to see that the dryer feels warm to hot when you reach in to tough the clothes. It is possible that the heat element has partially failed. Another thing to investigate is how well the laundry machine is spinning out the water in the spin cycle. This spin cycle is used to get as much water out as possible prior to placing the clothes in the dryer. The wetter the clothes when they come out of the laundry, the longer it takes to dry them.

Dryer is taking multiple cycles to dry average weighted clothes/


Make sure the dryer heats up and that the proper cycle is selected. If the dryer doesn't heat, the cause will need to be determined. This can be an ignitor issue, the timer, or a gas supply problem.

If it's heating, check the vent line from the dryer to the outside of the dwelling for lint clogging. Also check the diverter (flapper valve) at the dryer vent outlet to be sure it opens all the way and that the air stream is pretty strong. Lint clogging is one of the most the most common causes of dryers not drying very well or taking an extended drying time period.

If the vent line is longer than 20 feet and has multiple bends, backpressure in the line can cause additional clogging.

Maytag gas dryer doesn't dry properly


SOUNDS LIKE A RESTRICTION IN THE VENT. CHECK AIR FLOW WHERE VENT EXITS HOUSE. IF IT IS NOT STRONG, INSPECT VENT LINE BEHIND DRYER. IS IT CRUSHED OR CLOGGED WITH LINT? THIS WILL CAUSE DRYER TO SHORT CYCLE. IF VENT IS NOT CLOGGED, CHECK AIR FLOW AT BACK OF DRYER WITH VENT DISCONNECTED. IS AIR FLOW STRONG? OF NOT, PROBLEM IS WITH BLOWER.

I have a gas Whirlpool Duet dryer and sometimes the cycle wont complete and the clothes arent dry ( very damp). when i use the timed dry option i ave the same result. last week my washer overflowed and i...


Check your exit vent outside of your house... what you can do is remove vent hose on back of your dryer... run dryer and feel the air coming out of the vent right behind your dryer.. now reinstall your vent line and check outside,,, see if you feel the same or about the same air flow... if your air flow is block, then your heat will not come on regularly to dry clothes... good luck
