Question about Whirlpool Dryers

1 Answer

I have an Estate gas dryer and it does not get the clothes all the way dry on the timed setting and on the sensor setting the knob never moves. It just stays at the start of the cycle. The dryer starts off warm but cools as it continues through the cycle.

Drier dries too slowly. it does heat up but i always have to turn on again for 40 more minutes to complete drying. it does get hot. and i am not overloading.


You do not state if you are using a machine with an automatic drying sensor. If so the calibration of the sensor is off. Try setting the control to a dryer setting. If you are using it by time only, it would appear there may be a blockage in the air outlet. Check the damper flapper at the output of the air vent. It might be partially stuck closed thus reducing the air flow around the clothes. Just a thought that your washer spin dry may not be sufficiently spin drying the clothes and so that the clothes are overly wet when put into the dryer..

Whirlpool Gas Dryer keeps running on auto dry setting


When you moved the sensor wire on the moisture sensor may have fallen off.
Remove the front panel and locate the wire and the connection. It will be on the right side near the lint filter vent. If it is still connected your timer has gone bad.

Auto Dry not advancing


It sounds like a timer problem since it happens during timed also. Some dryers don't have an actual moisture sensor for auto dry. They work by knowing that as long as the clothes are wet the temp won't go past a certain point. As the clothes dry it trips a thermostat that lets the timer advance. Until this is fixed DON"T trust the timer to shut off the dryer. Sometimes it won't or could leave the dryer running for hours. This has nothing whatsoever to do with fuses. There are no fuses in a dryer. Just high limit thermostats and other devices that will shut off the heat but usually not the motor.

No heat


mcwilliams if you pull the over off the front of the dryer at the bottom you can see the gas burner assy. Put the dryer on time dry and start the dryer, you should see a glow from the ignitor, then hear a click, then the heat come on. In the auto dry mode, the timer advances along with the dryness level. No heat, No timer advancing. If you don't see a glow, there should be a thermosat on the heater can, see if it is tripped. If so if it is resetable, reset then try again. You may have a bad ignitor.
