Question about Whirlpool LEB6200 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Leb6200 wont completely dry clothes first time.

While installing power cord when new,I had a electric arch(lose wire) and the drier never seemed to dry right.The air flow is fine and the drier seems to heat up just fine.But it takes 2 or 3 times to get clothes completely dry.Could this have done something to the heating element.
Thanks
Dave

The problem is most likely an airflow problem. if you have a flexible duct connected to the back of the machine then replace it with a smooth rigid (not pvc) metal duct. clean inside the wall or wherever the air goes to get outside (must be smooth metal at least 4" in diameter) in the wall, without too many bends. the electrical arc you spoke of would not have an effect on the heating element unless the machine is not heating at all.

My drier gets warm but not hot???whats wrong....I check exhaust system cleaned it and vent system too. power is normal I put it on express drying too and warm not hot?


Most electric driers have two heater coils, inside that provide heat to dry the cloths. Wires like in a light bulb only bigger. I suspect one of these coils is burnt out and thats why it is only getting warm not hot. Also be sure to remove the hose from the back of the drier and check for a restriction there.

I have a Kenmore dryer and it runs but won't heat up and dry the clothes. I don't hear the ignition even turn over. Please help. I can't afford to buy a new dryer at this time.

Electric drier takes 2 to 3 cycles to dry one normal size load


Have you tried cleaning the actual inside of the drier?
When you use drier sheets the wax on the sheets melts onto your clothes and makes them soft, but the wax often gets stuck in the holes of the drier making it incapable of drying the clothes in one load. Try scrubbing the inside of your drier with some hot water.

Lint screen caked up


Take the vent hose lose at the back of your drier, and clean your lint screen off or replace it, then try drying some clothes. If this technique minimize or eliminate the caking of your lint screen, then the problem is in your vent hose. Clearly, there is an obstruction, or an improper installation of your vent hose.

good luck

Kenmore 80 series dryer...takes twice as long as it should to dry


no about all the time this kind of problem is caused by some kind of vent restriction start by looking over th back of the drier with a flash light and see if the vent is mashed folded over on its self or too long you only need enough to hook to the connector to the floor then go to the out side with the drier running and check to see if the drier hood attached to the house is opening i some have a plastic screen attached to the hood to keep critters out make sure that's clear rule is must have a 4" opening from drier to out side hood cant hang down under house and come back up as dryer will fill it with water over a peorid of time now easy way to verify vent restiction is to disconect vent run 1 load and see if it dries in proper time about 60 min
