The big door seal is probably the problem. Put on gloves and using a solution of Laundry detregent and hot water and rags, carefully wipe clean all the folds of the seal. It will be icky. Next run a cycle with some detergent and oxyclean or bleach if you have it.

Especially during warm weather, damp clothing left in a front loader mildew slightly very quickly- you can't really see much but you can smell it! So get the clothes in to the dryer immediately. You'll want to relaunder the smelly clothing after you have cleaned the washer.

Good luck to you and Thank You using FiX YA!

Whirlpool duet electric dryer staining clothes

Are you sure it is the dryer? Most staining occurs in the washer and it usually because of fabric softened. Either because you are using to much or you haven't clean the dispenser

My duet whirpool electric dryer keeps stoping before my clothes are dry

Make sure you are not using a timed drying setting. Use one of the pre programmed functions on the dial. These settings are meant to use a sensor and stop when the clothes are dry. If the problem continues on one of these settings, there is likely a problem with the sensor or your heating element

We recently moved. Ever since the move, the dryer has not been working properly. It turns and dries clothes but not fully. Even at its highest temperature and very dry mode, the clothes still come out...

What you need to check is if the venting the dryer connects to is crushed/restricted or in some manner blocked. Check from where it connects at back of dryer all the way to where is vents outside of the house.

After drying for 75 minutes timed cycle, my clothes are still damp. I also cannot get clothes dry on the normal cycle at all.

Things to check:

Make sure the dryer is heating up
Make sure the lint screen is clean
Check the vent to make sure it isn't obstructed or plugged (this is the pipe that goes to the outside)
Make sure the unit isn't overloaded
Check the spin cycle of the washer - if it isn't spinning out enough water for the load, the dryer can't make up the difference - sometimes this is as simple as a plugged discharge filter on the hose that goes to the drain.

Whirlpool Duet dryer quite drying. Drum turns, reset the breaker. I think it isthe element. I havechanged othertype before. How difficult is itto change and do you know the approx. cost?

Check your thermal switches first. A open thermal limit switch will do the same thing as a open element. Seeing how new this model is, do you have warranty? As new as you drier is I kind of doubt you have a broken heater. I think you are looking at a systems control issue.
This site may help. They have a parts list for your dryer. Make sure you use your exact part number if you order any parts. Personal disclaimer: I know nothing about this site and am providing it as referance only.

Hhi, Have you checked the vent that goes outside to see if it is plugging up? Make sure it is not pinched/kinked as well.
Is this gas or electric?
