Question about Whirlpool Dryers

I have a fairly new Whirlpool dryer. It dries very well but when I take the clothes out the dryer has a lot of lint, hair, etc. in it. I just had someone clean my dryer vent and I still have the problem. Any ideas? Maggie

Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint.

My dryer leaves hair behind in my clothes


Hello Sanya;

My name is peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You have one of two or both problems.


1.) Restricted air flow - If you do not have the high air flow to remove the hair you may be plugged up with lint. In the back of your dryer is a hot air distribution manifold. This is easily removed by several screws. Usually the bottom smaller port get plugged up and needs to be cleaned out.

The other item is the moisture sensor. It may be bad not drying the clothing enough for the hair to break free. This is located in side the front. You will have to remove both the top and front of your unit to access.

My Whirlpool gas dryer is not working


Instructions

1
Check that the dryer door is closing completely. Remove anything that blocks the dryer door from closing.
2
Ensure the "Start" button is pressed firmly to start the dryer cycle, the dryer is not overloaded and the clothing is not balled up. Any of these things can prevent the dryer from operating and/or drying the clothes.

3
Use a level to confirm your Whirlpool dryer is sitting flatly and evenly on the ground. Adjust the dryer as necessary for it to be level as the dryer will vibrate and make unnecessary noise when sitting unevenly.
4
Examine the inside of the Whirlpool dryer drum and in the space around the drum for loose change, pens, hair ties and other items that could have been left in the pockets of clothing. These items will cause noise and potentially cause the dryer to become inoperable.
5
Examine the Whirlpool dryer's lint trap for excess lint. Remove any lint from the trap and place it back into position. Always clean the lint trap between dryer cycles. Inspect the area around the dryer and in the ventilation and exhaust systems. Remove any built up lint and clean the area thoroughly. Built up lint is a fire hazard and can cause operating issues.
6
Check the gas shutoff valve if your Whirlpool dryer is gas powered. Ensure the shutoff valve is turned all the way to the "On" position.
7Check the electric plug and ensure it fits securely in the outlet.
8
inspect both the fuse box and circuit breaker for any electrical problems. Replace any blown fuses, if necessary, and reset the circuit breaker if it has been tripp

Sounds like the vent is clogged with lint. You should have the vent cleaned once a year to keep the appliance operating properly. Also, make sure there are no kinks in the vent line.
Good luck!

Hair/Lint collecting on the Baffles of the dryer


I once heard you can periodically spray "Spray Starch" on the baffles themselves to alleviate lint and hair buildup. If you can prevent the unwanted particles from building up on the baffles theoretically they should be trapped in the dryer's lint collector.

Samsung dryer DV448AEP/XAA - lint buildup


Yes this is rellatively normal as clothes are just not made the same way any more. You could turn down the drying temperature slightly and put in an anti static drying sheet but it won't make that much difference.

Dryer taking longer to dry clothes


For a gas dryer:
Assuming the dryer is working properly and the control cycles are ok, look for things like a restricted venting system which inclides the exhaust, lint screen, etc. This would be the large pipe connected to the dryer exhaust that vents outside.

If it's an electric dryer, there could be issues with heating elements, thermostats, a control board, the timer, etc. Also check for any excessive lint build-up.

My dyer will not dry the clothes


First unplug your dryer from the electrical outlet. Next pull your dryer out from the wall. DIsconnect your flex outlet hose from the dryer and make sure it is not stopped up with lint etc. Next check the wall adapter to make sure it is clear of lint etc going to the outside of the house. If both of these are clear look inside the dryer outlet by looking in the tube where the flex hose was connected. You will need a flashligt to do this. If there is anything stopping it up remove it. If your dryer is getting hot but not drying there is probably something keeping the air from going out of the dryer to the outdoors.
