Still sounds like you have a restriction in the duct work going outside. check again with unit running for good airflow at outside vent. What you describe is what happens when you dont have good air circulation you end up with warm moist clothes,you need more than heat to dry clothes you need the air circulation to take away the moisture.....

NOT DRYER CLOTHS LIKE IT USE TO TAKING MUCH LONGER


Check for clogs in the vent air line. If dryer lint or some obstruction is slowing the air flow it will take longer to dry clothes. Also the dryer may not be getting hot enough. Check to see if the clothes feel hot or warm when you reach inside. If it feels hot enough it is likely an issue with air flow. heat and air flow are required to dry clothes.

Whirlpool dryer is not drying properly. Have to go through a couple of cycles to dry clothes.


2 things are needed to dry clothes. 1 is good air flow. Check to make sure that the dryer vent is not clogged or partially clogged with lint. Also make sure there are no kinks in the vent hose. With the dryer running you should feel good air flow blowing out of the outside house vent. The 2nd thing a dryer needs heat. Check to see that the dryer feels warm to hot when you reach in to tough the clothes. It is possible that the heat element has partially failed. Another thing to investigate is how well the laundry machine is spinning out the water in the spin cycle. This spin cycle is used to get as much water out as possible prior to placing the clothes in the dryer. The wetter the clothes when they come out of the laundry, the longer it takes to dry them.

I have a whirlpool dryer and the heating eleiment is getting hot but the dryer inside is barley warm


Inside of the dryer gets warmed up when the drum rotates as there is circulation of air. Hope your clothes are drying. If it takes long time then clean the screen filter as it gets clogged with the flint from clothes. As a matter of routine clean this filter every time you use it before starting the drying process.

Have a whirlpool cabrio gas dryer. It takes several hours to dry one load of clothes. The clothes seem to stay damp towels may take all day... what could be the problem


Have you opened the door while its running to see if its warm inside (heater working) If its getting warm and still not drying the clothes properly you likley have a air circulation concern. With the unit running check the exhaust vent outside from dryer it should have a good flow of warm air, if not you have a restriction sowher between the unit and outside. Heat alone will take forever to dry clothing,you need good air circulation to remove the moisture from the clothes otherwise all you will end up with is warm moist clothing.This generaly happens over a long period of time and then all of a sudden you realize the dryer is not working like it use to..Hope this helps you with your concern.....

Dryer does not release any heat


Is yours the gas model? If so I need you to look for some things. Open back door panel and see if while trying to light the igniter is glowing orange. Sea Breeze

Relatively new dryer takes several cycles to dry normal loads


Check the lint trap all the way down to vent, then make sure that the vent is not crushed in anyway. Depending on the way the person cleaned it they could have actually caused more of a clog
