The blower motors on these dryers can be packed with lint. It is a fire hazard. The entire front of the dryer has to be removed.

Please help...i have a brand new whirlpool dryer mod #wed9450wwh and it takes forever to dry a load of clothes...a small load or a large load. i have tried every setting and bought a new dryer...


Check the vent cap on the outside of your home to see what the air flow is like when the machine is on. It should be forceful enough to blow your haire back if you were to put your face in front of it. Make sure the vent hose behind the dryer is as short as possible and is not pinched or coiled. This definitely sounds like an air flow issue.

My LG Tromm dryer is not drying. it turns & gets hot but the dampness is not blowing out of the dryer, it just makes them hot & wet



The most common problem for a dryer to take more than one cycle to dry is restricted air flow.

1.when the dryer is running go outside and find where the venting is located, there should be a good amount of air flow.
2. if the air flow is not good look at the ducting coming from the back of the dryer and make sure it is not kinked or pushed back to far.
there is usually lint build up some where along the ducting or at the end of the duct where it vents to the outside.
3. if you have access to a leaf blower,this can be used to help clear any lint build up inside the duct from the dryer to the outside venting.
move your dryer out and take the leaf blower tube and stick it in the hole and turn it on.
the vented louvers need to be removed from the ouside of the house to allow the lint and things in the duct work to be blown out.

The dryer is not fully drying clothes


Here are a few basic trouble shooting things to try to get you started. Is this a gas or electric dryer? I will assume electric. Check to make sure the heating element is heating up. You can do this by taking off the vent hose on back, putting the dryer on a hot dry cycle and feel the air coming out. You should have a very strong flow and after just a few minutes you should have hot air. If the air flow is weak, you need to clean the vent and lint tray with a flexible brush to clear any lint and debris from the air path. If the dryer is not blowing hot air it could be a thermostat, the heating element itself or even a bad circut breaker only allowing half of the 220 volt electric to work.

If you have a strong air flow, and hot air the next step is to hook the dryer up to the vent again, go outside and find where the dryer vent exits the home. At the vent exit if you have flaps covering the exit they should blow out fully when the dryer is running, and if there is no vent cover the air flow should be just as strang as it was at the back of the unit. If it is a weak flow you will need to clean or replace the vent from the dryer to outside the home. The most common cause of slow dry or incomplete drying is restricted air flow or the heater not working. Please let me know if any of this helped or fixed the problem. If not we can look into more possible solutions.

LG DLE5977W Clothes Dryer takes forever to dry average loads of clothes. Authorized sevice tech recently cleaned air ducts and machine, but drying times per load takes hours. Any fixes to improve drying...


the most common problem is air flow restriction.make sure the machine is not pushed back to far and the ducting is getting kinked or blocked some how.when the machine is running go to the outside of your home and feel for the air blowing out of the dryer it should be pretty strong if it is not then there is a restrtion in the main line somewhere.and a leaf blower can be used on the inside of the house by sticking the tube in the vent hole and blowing it out but make sure that the outside part of the venting is clear so anything in the main line can come out.

It takes 3hours to dry a load of clothes even thought it is getting hot.


before you move the dryer,look behind the dryer and see if the vent hose is pinched off.if it is not pinched off than try runing the dryer with out the vent hose hooked up.if the dryer drys well than you have a blockage somewere between were hooks up to your dryer and outside vent.

Blows cold air and produces little lint in the vent


To get a rear control LG dryer apart: Open door and remove two phillips head screws at the 5 and 7 o'clock positions. Use a putty knife to release the clips holding the top panel to the dryer front by pushing the clips in at the seam of the dryer top and front, a couple inches in from each side. Swing top back. Remove two phillips head screws at the top, allowing front panel to pull forward. Unplug drum light and door switch and drum sensor plugs, allowing front panel to be completely removed and set aside. Now, look at the burner area at the lower right. Behind the gas valve you will find a small (about dime sized) high limit thermostat on the left side of the burner cone. It has two wires attached and has a small pin in the center of it. (Only on gas models) Push the pin in.
Now, if that get's you ignition again, CORRECT VENTING ! Get rid of flexible vent material. (use only rigid aluminum vent pipe and elbows) Clean out vent pipes and outside vent hood. Outside vent hood should be the kind with a four inch flap for the opening, not a two inch flap. Tripping of the high limit thermo is almost always caused by inadequate air flow.

it sounds like there is no air flow check outside of home where vent exits house there should be strong air flow it either a blocked venting or a bad blower fan in the dryer most likely blocked venting start outside then work your back to the dryer if no air flow outside remove venting from the dryer ifgood air flow here the vent is blocked if not blower fan most likely broken these blower fans drive hub round out on the motor shaft of the motor but it would be very loud this should fix it for you thanks kevin

Dryer takes more than one cycle to dry clothes


Did you clean the entire length of the vent ducting? Or, did you only clean the lint trap on the dryer and the exhaust vent outside? If you didn't clean the ducting as well, you may still have a clog somewhere causing your dryer to be "starved" for air. A dryer needs proper air flow to dry properly. One way to check is to turn the dryer on and go outside to the exhaust vent opening. Feel to see if you have sufficient air flow. If the air flow is weak, you have a clog. If not, you may have a high limit thermostat cutting off prematurely, not allowing the heating element to heat long enough. Check your ducting first and let me know if this helps.
