Question and Answers


Dryer not drying clothes - it rototes but clothes dont dry LTE5243DQ1 Whirlpool Washer/dryer laundry system


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the dryer.
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Whirlpool Dryer model number LTE5243DQ1.

First thing for safety and concerns to keep dryer running well is to check the lint screen and vent of air flow going out of the house.   If clogged up it could cause heating problems on any dryer.
To prevent a Blocked Vent Hood, once a year: 
1.  Clean any lint blockage from the exhaust vent hood.
2.  Make sure the vent hood flappers move freely.
3.  Check for screen/grate openings that allow bird or rodent nests.
4.  Replace exhaust vent hood if damaged.
5.  Check for good air flow while running the dryer.
Note: Poor airflow or decreased airflow indicates further vent system cleaning is needed.

If the dryer is heating in the least little bit then it will not be the heating element.   Please look below at the possibilities of your heating problems.

When it comes to Electric dryers here are all the options to check on when not heating.
All can be checked with an Ohm meter for its continuity open or closed.
You can see all these on the link below when clicked on.
