Whirlpool Duet Dryer Not Drying Well

10 posts in this topic

Model number:  GEW9200LW0

Serial number:  ML48065-15

Type:   DADT-ELE-2406028-EL54

We have owned the dryer for a couple of years - has been great.  Recently, drying performance is way off.  I have checked airflow both with and without vent pipe in place - air is warm and seems to be moving well.  Chamber is warm also.  Please help.

Thanks

Have you tried drying a load with the vent disconnected from the dryer?

Try what they said and also pull the lower panel off      and then also pull the lint housing off   .... Both parts have 2 1/4 screws on em  ..... vaccuum everthing out  will also help with airflow   ... Those units have  a t-stat above the flamechamber  and if the vent has poor airflow   it will short cycle off on this t stat      ......    as a safety always vac out this dryer

Well I took the front panel off and thoroughly cleaned the airway from the lint filter all the way to the exit.  Little if any change in the problem.   Clothes are still damp at end of cycle.   Any ideas where to go next?

Did you run this with the vent hose off of the dryer, if not do so as a test to see if your house vent is clogged. If you did do this suspect the thermister.

I ran a load of clothes last night with a small piece of clean dryer hose - still damp.   The air is warm but not hot.   Is it thermister time?

Thanks again for your advice,

Replaced thermister tonight.   All is well.   Everything back to normal.
