    Do you clean out the lint trap every time you do a load? Also you say it will run for days. Is the timer not working and it will not shut off?

HI, Check the following to address this issue further.

Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat. These thermostats are located in the dryer vent duct and sometimes mounted on the blower assembly as well.

Have a whirlpool cabrio gas dryer. It takes several hours to dry one load of clothes. The clothes seem to stay damp towels may take all day... what could be the problem


Have you opened the door while its running to see if its warm inside (heater working) If its getting warm and still not drying the clothes properly you likley have a air circulation concern. With the unit running check the exhaust vent outside from dryer it should have a good flow of warm air, if not you have a restriction sowher between the unit and outside. Heat alone will take forever to dry clothing,you need good air circulation to remove the moisture from the clothes otherwise all you will end up with is warm moist clothing.This generaly happens over a long period of time and then all of a sudden you realize the dryer is not working like it use to..Hope this helps you with your concern.....

Estate TGDS740PQ0 gas dryer not heating and timer not advancing but still runs


It could be several other things thermal fuse, thermal cut out, hi limit thermostat, dryer coils, heat sensor,or igniter. All of these parts are inexpensive and easy to test and replace.There is a video at t http://appliancehelponline.com/gdryertroublevideo.html his will walk you thru the troubleshooting of these components. It may be a different model but the troubleshooting will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available. If you need help disassembling your machine there are videos of this also for most styles.

Wont dry clothes, i can turn it on and wait a second then open door and heat appears to be onbut it seems to take hours and hours to dry a load


You may have a blocked vent.
Remove the connecting vent from the rear of the dryer.
Run a load of laundry.
Use timed dry at 50 minutes if possible.
If it dries correctly clean and repair the exhaust vent.

Clothes dryer not heating


Is this an ELECTRIC dryer? Or, a GAS dryer?

If this is an ELECTRIC dryer, the following link explains the most common causes of a "No Heat" problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

If this is a GAS dryer, the common source of a "No Heat" problem is a failed igniter, or gas valve safety coils.

I hope this helps you. If you require addtional assistance, please post back with your make and model so I can make a more accurate diagnosis and/or identify any parts you may need.

No heat


mcwilliams if you pull the over off the front of the dryer at the bottom you can see the gas burner assy. Put the dryer on time dry and start the dryer, you should see a glow from the ignitor, then hear a click, then the heat come on. In the auto dry mode, the timer advances along with the dryness level. No heat, No timer advancing. If you don't see a glow, there should be a thermosat on the heater can, see if it is tripped. If so if it is resetable, reset then try again. You may have a bad ignitor.
