This is usually the dryer coils have failed. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a video on replacing the dryer coils.

If you run a load with the duct unhooked it will tell you for sure its a venting issue, if not than your high limit thermostat needs to be replaced. I would not run more than 1 load with the duct unhooked due to carbon dioxide

Not getting hot


I get this call all the time does it not heat at all or heats but takes a longer than usual time to dry if it does not heat at all then there is a power interruption to the heating element without the exact model to look up the electrical schematic do not know how it is wired usually power goes thru a thermal fuse to the hi limit to the heater also possible you may have an open heating element, if it only heats a little then remove the the exhaust tube from dryer turn on place your hand over the exhaust if you feel heat for a period of time then cool air then heat again means it is cycling correctly when I say heat should be hot enough to be uncomfortable then you have a restricted exhaust that exits the house.

Kenmore dryer 90 series, heats a little, but doesn't get hot and takes 3 to 4 1/2 hrs to dry a med. size load.


Check vent path from lint filter all the way to the exhaust vent to make sure it is clear. If the dryer has a wet/dry sensor it could be malfunctioning. Try a manual cycle to see if the problem occurs then.

Dryer heats up ands pins, but it takes forever to


Hi, First thing to check is the 4" venting to the outside. Make sure it is free of any lint and that there are no kinks in the hose. If this is a gas dryer, the couls on top if the gas valve could be getting over heated and not opening the gas valve later in the cycle so there will be no heat.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Whirlpool dryer won't dry


If your dryer spins and heats properly and the clothes don't dry, then very simply put, the moist air is not being taken away. If your drying temp is adequate, then the problem is with the exhaust. Go to where the air is being exhausted outside your home, if working properly, when you put your hand on the air coming out, it should get damp very quickly. And ALWAYS clean the lint trap after every load!!!!

HEATING ELEMENT DOES NOT STAY ON. EACH LOAD TAKES TOO LONG TO DRY, (SEVERAL CYCLES).


Ok, check the exhaust hose and blower assembly for clogs. make sure the exhaust vent is free of any debris. it shoudl blow forcfully out the hose. if the exuast hose is clear of any obstruction and, the blower assembly is clear as well, replace the timer/control module.

Gas dryer heats fine but shuts down before the drying cycle is over taking longer to dry clothes. Lint trap and exhaust tube cleaned out.


You are going to most likely need a vent cleaning. The dryer is getting too hot and shutting off because it is not exhausting good.

Will not dry clothes fully. the machine heats fine but it takes two or more cycles to fully dry a little load. someone told me about a part that may need repaced around the lint trap.. Any ideas?


Your lint exhaust is blocking the heat flow.
Remove the vent from the rear of the dryer and run a timed cycle load for 40 minutes.
If laundry is dry, repair the outside vent.
If not dry,open the dryer cabinet and clean the inside lint and heat vent.
