Your thermal limit is located hereI have a Whirlpool Duet - 6fe0fd9.jpg1006c0d.jpg
To get to it unplug the machine. Remove the top. Push in on the release tabs on the inside of the control and remove it. Unplug the control quick connect and set it to the side. Get the brace off. Get the control board panel out yer way. Open the door and remove the screws. Take the bottom panel off and the front panel then the drum out. Give it a good hoovering all over and replace the thermal fuse.

Whirlpool Duet dryer time skips mins.


clean the stainless steel sensor pads located just inside the dryer door with isopropyl alcohol,these sensors register moisture in the garments and adjust drying times accordingly,when you use dryer fabric softener sheets it coats these sensors and throws the system off,make sure to shut off power to unit as this alcohol is very flammable,then leave door open to air out before re-powering up unit

Have a Whirlpool AWZ3413 tumble dryer that will only run for a few minutes before the filter light goes on and the heat stops. The filter isn't clogged, but if I scrape off the tiny amount of fluff...


Here are more possible routes:

Duet Dryer Moisture Sensor Bar part WP3387223 How To Replace (See the KENMORE note below)... You MAY want to try cleaning the Sensor with a Q-Tip and alcohol! Not too much though... just a dab.

more from the Internet...

"This is most likely due to the vent being clogged between the back of the dryer and where ever it exits the house! This accounts for the light and the long drying times. A dryer not only relies on heat but also air flow to dry. if air flow is restricted, drying times get much longer since the moist air can not exit the dryer."

whirlpool awz3413 filter light keeps coming on even though

Here is a VIDEO for a similar KENMORE (Whirlpool). IF you suspect the SENSOR is bad and HOW to replace it:

Be SURE and read the Comments below this VIDEO for more help!
