Hi thanks for the question. the problem is with a clog in the venting system . remove the vent and clean to the outside. where the lint filter is, use a brush with a long handle, to clean all the way down .do that . this should solve your problem. thanks the appliance doc

Kenmore dryer 110.86864100 - Where is the moisture sensor?


Ain't no moisture sensor. This is is not an electronic sensing machine. It uses another method to determine dryness. An orange wire connects to the base of the heating element. The timer motor is driven by power from it in auto dry. The timer motor is VERY slow. Slower than most dryer timer motors.As the clothes get dryer the heat is not needed so the element is turned off by the control thermostat which is mounted next to the skinny white fuse on the blower housing. This allows for the turtle like motor on the timer to advance. Once the clothes get to the point of dryness the heater stays off way longer and the timer motor advances on over to the cool down and carry on over to the end of cycle. So the clothes won't always be dry due to factors like lint buildup in the blower housing, venting to outside and so forth. having said that my mom bought a brand new Kenmore dryer and I set it on 55 minutes timed drying. At the end of that them clothes is still damp. I then set it to auto dry high heat and that usually gets em dry. I think the main probo with this dryer is the thermostat ain't set as high as older models to keep the heat at a moderate temp so that the limits won't blow on models in apts and such. Just a theory.

Clothes are not drying especially jeans and towels. duct is clear and at end of cycle dryer is hot.


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

My GE dryer cuts off around 10 minutes into most loads...


You have a bad motor. Could possibly be caused by lint buildup on the motor itself a loose belt or clogged external vent line.

What is the best setting to dry jeans on a kenmore 9000 electric


Use Auto Dry for most things and vary the "dryness" level to more or less depending on the thickness of the material you are drying. Auto is most efficient and will adjust itself for finish time.

Auto dry and select "more dry" before hitting start, for jeans or towels.

Dries clothes but runs too long & clothes VERY hot


Fixable and possibly a warranty claim. The timer is bad. You will need to get behind the control panel and remove the timer and replace the timer. First I would call whoever it is that yall bought the dryer through and see how long your warranty is. Most of the warranties are only 1 year. But if you bought a extended warranty then you are covered. The part can be found at repairclinic.com
