Question about Whirlpool Dryers
It sounds like you have a clog in your vent line somewhere between the point where it exits the dryer to where it exits the house. You may still need to remove the entire line and clean it thoroughly.
Here's an easy idea you can try to determine: Remove the vent hose from the back of the dryer and try running a load with the hose removed. The air leaving the dryer should be hot (about 140 degrees F) and forceful. If it's not, you have a clog INSIDE the dryer somewhere. If the air flow is normal, allow the dryer to run to see if your drying results are better. If so, you have venting problems EXTERIOR to the dryer. Either your vent line is clogged, is kinked somewhere, or too long. Remember: The SHORTER and STRAIGHTER a vent line, the better. If your drying results are about the same, then you probably have an operating thermostat that failing. Here's a helpful link you can try to assist you in troubleshooting:
