Take the back off your dryer andcheck the ohms on your heating element, thermostat and fuse. The Element is inside a metal case the terminals are accessable. The fuse and thermostat are mounted on the same case.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
What your describing is probably an air flow problem. Pull off the rear vent connect and start the dryer on no heat first. The air-flow should be strong enough to push a relaxed hand and wrist gently a short distance away form the outlet. IF you do not have this kind of air flow the apr passages inside the dryer are clogged with lint.
The passages that need attention
1. The lint filter. Wash it with vinegar and water then soap and water. Dryer sheet particulate or clothing will clog the screen. It wil look clear / clean but, it can be totally blocked.
2. The lint filter cavity remove the lint filter and use a folded wire coat hanger in a U shape to assist in removing lint while using a vacuum to get rid of the lint.
3. Use a flashlight and check the exit vent on the back of the dryer for a white / gray restriction of lint build up. Ust the folded wire coat hanger to assist in clearing the ducting.
4. ANYWHERE you can access ducting clear it.
5. Make sure to check all of the ducting from dryer to the vent flapper outside the house. The thru the wall vent flapper is on of the most common reasons for vents being blocked.

After the serious cleaning session re-test the outlet on no heat to see if it will push your hand and wrist gently away from the vent outlet. If you have good air flow reconnect the vent and check air-flow outside the home at the thru the wall vent. It should be very brisk.

If you can not establish good air flow then there is a problem with the fan / blower wheel. It is most likely damaged. Broken blades, center hub cracked and the wheel is more or less floating on the motor shaft.

This should resolve the problem BUT if it does not respond here and I will help you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

The most common problem for a dryer to take more than one cycle to dry is restricted air flow.

1.when the dryer is running go outside and find where the venting is located, there should be a good amount of air flow.
2. if the air flow is not good look at the ducting coming from the back of the dryer and make sure it is not kinked or pushed back to far.
there is usually lint build up some where along the ducting or at the end of the duct where it vents to the outside.
3. if you have access to a leaf blower,this can be used to help clear any lint build up inside the duct from the dryer to the outside venting.
move your dryer out and take the leaf blower tube and stick it in the hole and turn it on.
the vented louvers need to be removed from the ouside of the house to allow the lint and things in the duct work to be blown out.

Kenmore dryer will only work on no heat cycle...any other heat cycle will give pf code. md number 417.84092500


The Kenmore H5T is an electric clothes dryer meant for residential use and manufactured by the Kenmore Company, which manufactures a wide variety of appliances for the home, including refrigerators, dishwashers, microwaves, stoves, and clothes washers and dryers. While most Kenmore clothes dryers work well with only basic care and maintenance, certain problems, such as the dryer not heating, occasionally occur. Troubleshooting this issue may solve the problem without the help of a service technician.
instruction
  • Ensure that the dryer is properly connected to a working grounded power supply. Confirm that the power cord is plugged firmly into the dryer and the power outlet. Reset household fuses or circuit breakers if necessary.
  • 2 Remove the lint screen from the bottom front of the dryer. Pull off all lint so that the filter screen is clean, and replace the lint screen in the dryer.
  • Run the dryer for 5 minutes on a normal cycle and hold your hand under the outside exhaust hood to feel for air movement. If there is no air movement, turn off the dryer and unplug the unit. Disconnect the exhaust vent and clean out any possible obstructions, such as excess lint. Reconnect and confirm that the vent is not kinked or crushed and preventing proper heated air flow.
  • Ensure the dryer is not in a room or outside with ambient temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit. The dryer will be unable to heat properly if the ambient temperature is too low.
  • Avoid overloading the dryer with too many clothes, which will limit proper heat and air flow in the dryer. Make sure the dryer is not set on an "Air Only" dry cycle, which does not provide heat.
  • Contact an authorized service technician if the preceding steps do not resolve the problem.

    Why does dryer heat and tumble,but doesn't blow air


    No air flow is due to a restriction due to lint build up. Pull the lint filter and look closely at it. Sometimes the filter gets a residue from dryer softener sheets that can cause lint to stick to the screen and block air flow. To remove wash it with a mild detergent and use a gentle brush on it.

    If that is clear then the restriction is further inside the dryer or in the vent pipe between the dryer and wall or the pipe that goes from the wall to the outside. You may have to take off the vent hose and turn the dryer on to see if air blows out the back of the dryer for a few seconds. If air blows there then the problem is in the house venting and you need to have that cleaned.

    Our dryer stopped heating so we changed element and cutoff kit, worked for 2 loads and quit, again changed cutoff kit and worked for 15 minutes and stopped heating again, what are we not doing right?


    The cutoff is there to trip if too much heat builds up around the heating element. The most common reason for this is plugged venting. But it has to do with poor air flow for sure.

    - Check to make sure your lint screen is clean and nothing is fallen down the lint filter chute

    - Briefly run the dryer without the vent connected and feel the air coming out the back of the dryer, it should feel like good air flow, now connect it again and feel the air where it comes out of your home, it should feel about the same strength.

    - To clean the vent, you can use a long brush, a vacuum or even a leaf blower to try and clear the lint. (blow from inside out or you may make a mess inside)

    Dryer takes too long to dry a load


    Have you checked the lint screen? pull the lint screen out and remove the lint then hold flat and pour water on it. Does the screen hold the water or does the water flow through? If it holds water, then you must actually clean the film that has coated the screening material. Use dish soap and scrub lightly then rinse clean. and check again.

    My Kenmore Elite HE3 Dryer is not drying. It does not seem to produce any heat. The dryer does start as usual, lint screen is clean. Help!


    It may not be your heating element. Your dryer lint vent pipe out the back of the machine or maybe out the side may be plugged. You have to pull the machine out and clear that pipe or rebuild it out to a soffit vent or static vent if it is in the attic, or out through your crawl space. This will make a huge difference. If that hot air and moisture doesn't get out of the machine it just goes back into your clothes.
    Good luck!!

    My LG dryer will not dry anymore. Lint is only on 1/4 of the lint screen when I pull it out. It takes about 3 hours for one load to dry


    First check that the duct is clear of obstructions.

    A quick way is to place a wet towel in the dryer, remove the duct from the wall and let the machine vent inside of the house. run it at high heat without the filter screen in.

    While it is running check for good air flow by placing your hand near the dryer vent. Also note if there is any heat. also listen for the sounds of the drum turning.

    If there is good flow and good heat then the filter screen of duct needs cleaning. Inserting the filter screen and running the test again will tell you which it is. If there is a noticeable difference between filter in and filter out then the filter needs cleaning.

    If there is good flow and no heat then the dryer element needs to be checked and either a thermostat or element replaced.

    If there is no flow then the blower needs to be replaced.

    If there is no drum spinning but heat and flow then the belt needs to be replaced ( Extremely unlikely)

    If all of these conditions check out then you will need to call a tech in to diagnose.
