Kenmore Dryer does not dry clothes in one cycle

Took off the vent hose and found lint and water. Cleaned and vacuumed all parts. Heating Element looked okay. Which Thermoset might be bad?
Thanks,
Bill

    took it all apart and cleaned lint out, tested heat switch it had no resistance but didn't test to see when it cuts out. Vent hose is clear and gets hot but clothes take two cycles to dry.

Noticed a smokey smell. Took off the front lower plate and found a lot of burnt lint. Is this normal? The venting is clear.


Some lint gets to the bottom of all dryers it got to the heating element and got scorched. Just vacuum it out once in a while.

Dryer takes 3 hours to dry towels


Part of the heating element may be open and not heating. You need to remove the drum to access the elements. Vacuum out all air passages including the hose that goes out to the outside vent. Wash the lint filter in hot water and detergent to remove fabric softener from the screen which blocks air flow.

My lint screen has no lint on it after drying a load. it also takes more than 1 cycle to dry. I have checked venting and it is clear. Heating element seems to be working, gets hot and goes off, comes back...


generically: Danger Will Rogers Danger...Better try to get inside the cabinet and check the venting....
..possibilities:
Vent pathway plugged (hence no lint) and lint backing up inside cutting flow and thermal sensor shutting down heating element.
..Vent hose in hole of cabinet but not connected to duct inside cabinet and lint is just filling cabinet. (common reason for premature heating element failure--3 times for my aunt fixed by tech--before I saw the vent hose connected only to the cabinet)
...both of the above is a hazard and can burn out the heating element.
..might possiblly be able to back blow through the vent hole and/or lint trap with a shopvac/vacuum cleaner (try **** and blow); but if works still need to verify that air pathways are clear and vent hose connected properly inside--should be fairly obvious inside.
...hope helps

DEIX2 does not dry - cleaned out lint trap, disassembled and removed lint from around lint trap assy., still not drying


Check the following areas thoroughly to address this issue.


1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.

Dryer is spinning and warming up but it's not drying


Exhaust full of lint. Vacuum into dryer exhaust as far as you can, Then clean out complete vent from dryer to outside. Any lint will catch moisture and clothes will not dry.

Whirlpool dryer....heats


You could have heating element going bad, or a plugged dryer vent. Start with dryer vent, make sure all lint is out of it, all the way through it, even if it goes to the roof, or out the wall. Also vacuum out back of dryer and inside vent tube. This should help with problem. If not then replace heating element its getting weak.

In most every case i have seen this happen, the dryer is connected to flexible venting. Flexible venting is the worst thing for a dryer. Rigid aluminum only. If your element shuts down that fast, it is definitely an air flow problem. Remove the front, clean out the lint screen housing from the spout to the blower, all the way to the lint screen so that it looks factory clean. The venting must be absolutely clean as it was the day it was put in new. The outside application, whether it is louvers, vent flapper, or ball vent, must be clean and operable as a new one. Once again, my suspicion is the venting as it is most likely a flexible type of venting with either excessive length or restricted flow. A dryer can only be vented for 30 ft. counting 5ft for every elbow and 5ft for the outside application. But the flexible equates as this...for every 1 foot of flex you must add 5 foot because of air restriction. I am surprised that the non resetable fuse has not blown yet. ( it will, trust me.)

Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II: No heat


didc, on a gas dryer, if the thermal fuse blows it will still rotate, but will not heat. Since this is a gas dryer, see if the ignitor is glowing. If it is, then you know the thermal fuse is good. If not, the thermal fuse may be blown or the ignitor itself and thus the reason for no heat. Catriver.7152136.jpg
