« on: February 03, 2012, 07:42:11 AM »
Whirlpool Electric Dryer Model WED5830SW0




Customer said the dryer did not seem to be getting as hot as it use to.
Cleaned out the lint from the dryer and duct. Also replaced the cycling thermostat.

Did you clean out the dryer vent that goes to the roof or to the side? A lot of times if that doesn't get cleaned they you are back to square one.

I can't tell you how many times I went to a customers house and they said they cleaned out the vent. I talked them into me cleaning the vent and it was completely clogged. There is the right way to clean a dryer vent and there is every other way.

Oh you know what, I thought I was in a different forum.  "Appliance repair business, service calls." I apologize.
