SOURCE: Our dryer, described below, takes

Your complaint is:"Our dryer, described below, takes between 4 and 6 hours to dry, though it's advertised as "heavy duty" and "extra large capacity.""

White Kenmore 5.8 cu. ft. Super Capacity Gas Dryer
Sears item# 02690412000 Mfr. model# 90412


Based on the information provided above, I am unable to provide a positive solution to your issue. Your model number is incomplete! I have provided some common solutions to help guide you in your search. This information is for a non-specific brand model, gas dryer.

This link, http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SmartSearch.aspx, provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Just follow the links to navigate through the site.

You will need to enter the model number stamped on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the User’s Manual. to access your product information.
It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these:

Vent
Flame sensor/gas valve
Internal ductwork
Cycling thermostat
Lint Filter Vent: Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. Also note that, to maximize drying efficiency, the vent should be as short as possible.

Flame sensor or gas valve coils: This is the most likely cause. Click links below. http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=3449&PPStack=1 http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=3229&PPStack=1 There's a flame sensor near the igniter. If it's defective, the gas may shut off prematurely. Another common problem occurs when one of the electrical coils on the gas valve fails intermittently. If this happens, the flame shuts off before the thermostat sends a signal, which can greatly prolong the drying time. If the sensor or the coils are causing the flame to shut off, replace them.

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.

Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.
If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.
Thank you,
Dave E. (Illeagle)

SOURCE: Dryer capacity

Yes, a full size dryer as yours is easily capable of drying a full sized load from the washer you mentioned. The wash tubs in the new model washers and dryers still maintain a standard size. For example, the front loader dryer that I purchased to match my front loader washer is completely identical to earlier standard models without all the fancy packaging. I could have saved some money and purchased only the washer, but...the wife needed a matching pair.

Now, you will still have to properly sort items to ensure they dry efficiently. A copy of your dryer owner's manual will describe this to you. I'm not here to give you lessons in how to dry your clothes, but if you do not own a copy of your manual and would like to refer to it, you can obtain a copy at geappliances.com. Just look under the "Service and Support" section for "Use and Care Manuals". Just type in your model number and your owner's manual is availble in a downloadable .pdf format.

The point I'm attempting to make here is that although you can place a full load from your washer in the dryer, if you do not properly separate certain items, they will not dry properly. I did not want you to think this was a cause of the appliance.

In addition, make sure the dryer vent ducting is properly cleaned and not clogged anywhere. This can also contribute to longer dry times.

I know you were only asking a simple question. I just wanted to be thorough in case additional question may arise. I hope this information is helpful to you.

SOURCE: Whirlpool 6.5 cu ft 5 cycle is not timing and drying clothes qui

First I would check to make sure your vent is not clogged or kinked. As far as the timer, the only fix would be to replace it. Unless of course you have the feature that detects the dryness and that would put you back at the venting problem. Good luck.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9564J Top Load Washer Sm8525079 what is the capacity of this washer and what is the capacity of the matching dryer?


Hello.

The capacity of your washer is 3.2 cu ft and the dryer is 6.0 cu ft. This is pretty much a standard for newer top load washers and dryers. You can get bigger but it is not that much bigger.
