Q:

Limited heat LEC9000PW1 Whirlpool Residential dryer

A:

Thank you for submitting your question. If the dryer doesn't appear to be heating enough the most likely cause would be a clogged or restricted exhaust vent. Here are some tips that may help:

Check the flexible vent hose behind the dryer for kinks or clogs.

Check the exhaust duct to the outside of the house for lint build-up or restrictions.

To verify if it's the dryer vent, try drying a medium load of towels on high heat with the flexible exhaust duct behind the dryer disconnected and the unit venting directly into the room. If the load dries significantly more with the exhaust vent duct system disconnected, then the restricted exhaust air flow is causing your issue. While the vent is disconnected during the above test, also check the temperature of the exhaust air coming out of the dryer with a thermometer. On most Kenmore and Whirlpool dryers, it should be cycling around 150 degrees F. If it is not cycling properly, you could have a thermostat problem. I hope this information helps.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The thermal cut off will fail if the dryer is getting too hot. The thermal can fail if the heating element happens to short to ground, or if there is restriction in the venting system.

If the motor centrifugal switch contacts 2M and 1M are stuck shut and dryer door is opened in the middle of the cycle, the heater will remain on with out any air flow and will also cause the thermal cut off to fail.

I recommend checking and cleaning the vent hose and vent system of any kinks or restrictions.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
