Question about Whirlpool GGQ8831L Gas Dryer
When first got dryer did great job, now takes long time for clothes dry, keep lint filter cleaned and has good outlet flow
Dryer only produces very low heat. The lint trap only shows a small spot of lint at the bottom end of the trap when it used to show the whole length of the trap. The lint at the bottom is hard to remove as it must be wet when it hits the lint screen.
How do we get the heat back up. All knobs are set for high heat but it just produces a very low heat.
We have recently cleaned the outside of the dryer for lots of lint that had escaped through a hole in the outside venting hose. It ran just fine for about 2 weeks after the outside cleaning.
Sounds like perhaps you are losing your heating element...could be electronic, but it's most likely the actual element needs to be replaced...
