My dryer is a model 110-87880800 when it dries on timed dry, it makes a sound and then turns off after it's been on for awhile, and clothes are still damp. I can't turn it back on until I wait awhile...assuming it needs to cool?

SOURCE: Dryer is not drying clothes fully.

As long as the dryer doesn't have electronic controls, this very common symptom indicates a bad(open) heating element.

SOURCE: My dryer turns, but it doesn't dry my clothes.

, your vent duct is probably obstructed (it happens over time). If your model is the type where you could feel air if you removed the lint trap, do so and turn the dryer on. If you get warm air there... you know it is in the ducting, in the back of the machine, or at the wall vent. Pull off your duct, and give it a good cleaning. Clean out the back of the machine, and the wall vent. When you reinstall the ducting, minimize any twists and turns possible.
If the coils are good, but you get no heat, the problem may be the thermostat or the motor switch.

Wrinkles clothes terribly. Solutions.


Check your settings on your dryer. See if it's on a longer duration of time to dry. Dryers have different wording depending upon the make and model. If you're trying to dry smaller loads the heat settings s
does not have to be set for very long. Heavier, loads with thicker clothing will need to dry a little longer. When you take the clothes out of the washing machine, do you shake the clothes before putting them in the dryer? And do you use dryer sheets? Believe it or not, they're not only used to help make your clothe's smell fresh but they also help elevate static and a few wrinkles.

My Whirlpool dryer tumbles but no heat. The clothes dry after along period of time and that is when i finally feel some heat.


Probably needs a good cleaning. If it was me I would remove the filter housing and do a through cleanup. make sure the vent going outside is not blocked. The dryer must have adequate airflow to work well.

My dryer takes forever to dry anything and often times will not turn on when i press start after it's been ran for a 70 minute cycle but will turn itself on after sitting for awhile my dryer is


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

We have a gas dryer purchased in 1996, Model #CDG800W. The dryer has started to make a strange grinding sound when we're drying clothes. Any suggestions?


Most likely a bad blower wheel. Over time the hub gets hot, melts, wobbles out, and start to rub the blower housing. The wheel slips and makes it take a long time to dry the clothes. This causes the filter to warp and the top to get extremely hot.fdd151b.jpg513b315.jpga1f312f.jpg77fbb60.jpg

My electric Whirlpool clothes dryer (model #LER 5636EQ3) about 9 years old, will not dry a load of clothes in just one cycle. I have to dry some things 2 or 3 times before the clothes are dry. I clean out...


Check your electrical power going to the dryer at where you plug the plug in at the receptical. and make sure you have 120 volts on each leg, it sounds like you may have one leg with 120 volt and the other leg with no voltage. I hope this helped. Please rate me, Thanks

Amana Gas CLothes Dryer Mod#NDG7800AWW dryer will heat and does dry some but when it moves to the less dry the dial does not move and the dryer does not heat


if your clothes are damp because you say it does dry some what then it sounds like it could be the gas coils,the coils will work for awhile but then they fail and the timer will not move if there is no heat on the more or less

Model/stock #...66904/669. Having to run 3-4 cycles to completly dry clothes


Sounds like your problem could be the thermostats or the heating element, they will normally cause the dryer to take a long time to dry the clothes

Amana model LGA30AW automatic setting doesn't shut the dryer off


You can make adjustments to your Automatic Cycles by adjusting the Factory Dryness Level:
Changing the Automatic Cycle settings to increase or decrease drying time:
If all your loads on all Automatic Cycles are consistently less dry or more dry than you would like, you may change the default settings to increase or decrease the default dryness
level.

Your automatic drying settings can be adjusted to adapt to different installations, environmental conditions, or personal preference. This change is retained and will affect all of your
Automatic Cycles, not just the current cycle/load. There are 5 drying settings, which are displayed using the time display:
0 Much wetter clothes, 30% less drying time.
1 Slightly wetter clothes, 15% less drying time.
2 Factory preset dryness level.
3 Slightly drier clothes, 15% more drying time.
4 Much drier clothes, 30% more drying time.
TO CHANGE THE DRYING SETTINGS: NOTE: The settings cannot be changed while the dryer is running or paused. The dryer must be in standby mode (power is off) to adjust the default settings.
  1. Before starting a cycle, touch and hold DRYNESS for 6 seconds.
  2. Touch DRYNESS to select the dryness level shown in the time display: 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4.
  3. Touch START/PAUSE to save the new dryness level setting.

Dryer not turning off when clothes are dry (model LDE 400ACL)


Normally if you have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry, it will do it with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system. The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a "pre-set" temperature.
When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. If there is a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough. The timer advances until the interior cools, then the termostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again. This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But... if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix this problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork and make sure the vent is not compressed or kinked. If that doesn't work, then your thermostat, moisture sensor or timer could be the culprit.

It sound as a thermostat issue. Try to make a short over the thermostat tags, run a drying cycle and see what happen. In case you will get a dry clothes, you should replace the thermostat. Good luck!
