Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer
We have the Kenmore 417 dryer, about 9 years old. Lately the laundry hasn't been getting dry. After finding that lint was getting through a bend in the filter (different, though possibly related problem) and emptying out a huge wad of lint, here's what's happening. The dryer barrel heats up for the first 5 minutes or so. After that the barrel no longer heats, but the back side of the unit is extremely hot and even shows a burn mark. Does this sound like a timing or sensor problem, or is the motor fried from when it was blocked by lint? Thanks!
