We have a gas dryer whipool duet . It dry the towel but it still litle damp and the flame it good , no vent hook up , and it run for 70 minute cycle ,. Any idea why that happen . Please hepl


If you are not venting the moisture from the towels away from the rear of the dryer that could be causing your problem. If the dryer is up against the wall try either moving it away from the wall or hooking a vent hose to the discharge and at least pulling the other end of the host around to the side of the dryer. The dryer pulls air into it self from the rear and bottom of the dryer so it could be pulling the moisture from the towels right back into the dryer making it take longer to dry. Hope that helps

Why is my whirlpool duet gas dryer is take too long to dry? even the bed sheets.


Hi,

If your
dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

Smell after drying


Try drying your clothes without the dryer sheet and see if the smell is still there. If it is not, then the problem is the dryer sheet.
If it is, then you need to describe the smell better. Different people handle smells differently. What smells musty to you may smell fragrant to others.
You need to determine if the smell you don't like is really a musty smell, or is it a fragrance you don't like. Have some friends (not family members) smell the clothes and verify if what you are smelling is musty or fragrant.

It could also be that even though the clothes smell OK out of the washer, that the detergent you are using is the cause.

Does not dry completely


how well did you clean that duct, the duct is problem 90% of the time when the dryer does everything else, pretty much if the dryer heats and tumbles its doing its job
