According to my customers, the heating element is just "getting tired" and not heating up as well as it used to; obviously needs a new heating element. :silly:

This person has also "checked the vent" and it has been officially deemed "fine" LOL!

I don't know why, but the Whirlpool DOTT (Dryer of Tomorrow Today) with the lint screens in the door opening dryers do not handle vent restrictions very well like the other brands and models of dryers.

The belt didn't break....it jumped off this train wreck before it was choked to death.

Actually, it's pretty hard to tell when the belt broke because one would barely notice the difference between 60 mins and 70 mins to dry a pair of socks. I know a good archeological dig team that could come over and help you look for it though.
