Question about Whirlpool GEW9250 Electric Dryer

Hot enough? How can I tell if my dryer is getting hot enough. It seems to take a very long time, even with smaller loads, on heavy duty? It will dry, but it seem to take an hour, no matter what.

To check dryer temperature, you will need a thermometer capable of measuring instantaneous temperature. Remove the exhaust hose and place the measuring device at the exhaust of the dryer with the dryer empty. The temperature should peak around 140-150 degrees Fahrenheit with a minimum around 120 to 130 degrees Fahrenheit.

LONG dry time is an indication of a clogged or restricted exhaust.Check the exhaust hose in the rear of the machine and make sure it isnot crushed or kinked. The vent pipe should be rigid metal not flexiblefoil or flexible plastic. If everything in rear looks OK, check theoutside vent hood for any blockages. If everything checks out, theexhaust system may need cleaning. Cleaning kits are available at most home improvement centers and at this website:http://www.linteater.com.

You say its a gas dryer...there is no element. Have you cleaned the lint trap. Is the vent clear of obstructions? I suspect one of these issues will be the problem

I think your vent has lint in the line between the wall and the outside of your house not allowing the moisture to get out

FIX

1 when the dryer is running go outside and observe the vent to see if hot air is coming out



2 Turn dryer off, disconnect electric from wall

3 pull dryer out from wall

4 take a nut driver or screw and remove the clamp that attaches the flex vent pipe to the wall

4 Also remove the flex pipe from the dryer

5 Inspect inside vent connection inside dryer for any trapped lint

6 inspect inside flex line for any lint

7 Look inside wall vent for lint you can also reach in with your hand to feel for lint

8 If you have a leaf blower or can borrow one(electric is best) from your neighbor put the snout of the blower into the vent going into the wall seal the area between the snout and the vent pipe at the wall ( i use duct tape you can use wash clothes rags etc

9 start blower and blow any lint in the line out through outside THIS WILL CLEAR THE LINT

10 Reattach the flex to the wall vent and dryer , plug in. run a load and you should be back in business

Good Luck

the vent that takes the air from the dryer out of the house is clogged. not the part right behind the dryer but from where it goes into the wall to where it leaves the house needs to be cleaned. when the air cant leave the dryer at normal speed it takes for ever to dry a load of clothes

Clothes dryer not getting hot enough to dry in a good time frame


I have the same issue with my DLG3788W dryer. It seem to have only one setting for heat, rather than multiple heat settings. What can I do or do I have to call someone to repair this.
