Default Dryer not drying in one cycle
Model Number: GEQ9800PB0   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Dryer will not dry in one cycle

Things I have tried:
Cleaned out vent hose and replaced an elbow that was restrictive
Cleaned lint from around the fan, filter, heating element and anywhere else I could get to

Ran a cycle with no clothes and no vent hooked up : 150-170 degrees
When I hook the vent up it drops to 140 and stays there...no clothes
I thought it might be a flow problem because my exhaust vent is about 20ft long so I installed a duct booster. It helped some but still have to run 2 cycles


Help please

Hi.

First of all run the dryer with the wet clothes inside and vent disconnected.
See if that makes a difference.
If it does - the problem is outside the dryer, if not - try to replace the cycling thermostat #42 and hi-limit thermostat #48 on the diagram

Bulkhead parts for Whirlpool GEQ9800PB0 - AppliancePartsPros.com

Get them both and return one you don't need.

Post the results.

My dad got me try that already...it did dry better but not completely. I know its not the vent...I have had it completely took apart. I changed a 90degree bend that looked restrictive and cleaned all the pipe. I ordered the 2 thermostats and post the results.

Changed both thermostats, ran a cycle with no clothes. Temps were a little higher than before so I tried a load of clothes. It dried them 95%....so I was pretty happy with that. Dried the next load and no heat at all....I ohmed the heating element and it reads 11 ohms.

What should I check now? I am about to say screw it and buy another dryer.

Hi.

The heater's resistance is normal.
Check if there is 240VAC to the heater (with one wire off) and trace the leg without the voltage.
Possibly the thermal cut off kit Part number: 279769

Part number: 279769


Post the result.
