My dryer is heating fine but there is no air blowing out of the vent. Therefore, clothes are not drying properly. I have cleaned the lent filter, checked the outside and and inside vent for clogs or...


run the dryer with the vent hose off, if it drys correctly then it is in the vent tube. The best way to clean the vent hose is with a leaf blower, now if it is not drying with the vent hose off then you will need to disassemble the dryer, and clean from the bottom of the lint trap back to the back of the dryer with a brush(paint) and a vacuum:

My kenmore 400 dryer takes for ever to dry clothes, does it need a new heating element?


Have you ever cleaned it out? If not, that is the most common problem with dryers. It can't breathe and takes multiple cycles to dry the clothes. Unplug the dryer and pull it out. Disconnect the vent from the back of the dryer. Clean out lint from dryer and vent. Take the vent outside if you have to and blow it out with air compressor, if you can. Now check the other end of the vent outside at the vent cap. Clean it out and make sure the vent cap flap is not stuck closed. After reassembling vent, turn on dryer and check for heat at outside vent. You also may need to clean it out more if lint has traveled down the vent. Also, clean out your lint filter religiously for more efficient drying. Those are the easy things to look for and fix on your own. If it still does not improve drying, you made need a repairman to trouble shoot it. Good luck!

Starts up and heats up fine but shuts off 10 to 15 mins into drying


Check your heat discharge vent. It's probably stopped up with lent Check it completely, from the machine thru all the fittings, even the little door on the outside of your home, if you use one.

Low heat output


A clogged or partially clogged vent . Especially if vents up thru the wall . If it vents straight out , make sure you have good air flow to the outside . Make sure the vent hose has no sharp kinks also . Try drying a load with the vent hose disconnected from the dryer . If clothes dry fine , that tells you the problem is elsewhere . Normally , a dryer either heats or doesn't heat . A heat for a few minutes then stops heating but continues to run complaint ,would be bad coils on the gas valve .

Needs more than one cycle each load


Hi, Te first thing to look into is the 4" vent leading outside. Make sure it has no kinks and that it is cleaned all the way outside. Next thing to look into is the heating. Is this a gas or electric dryer?
Get me a model # please and I can look into this for you.

We have a Kenmore 110 6092299 90 Series dryer. The motor still runs - but no hot air, at all. I've tried timed and heat dry. Nothing. It just tumbles and it takes 4-5 rounds to dry. At first we were told...


Sounds like the heating element or the thermo-cut off. A vent being clogged for some time, can cause too much heat to build up and make the element or cut off fail. These are the 2 most common things.

Kenmore Dryer not heating


thermal fuse kit.it is blowing due to improper ventilation.their is a clog somewhere from dryer to where dryer vents outside.thermal fuse is located at top of your elemnt cage.you will replace the thermal fuse and your high limit fuse at the bottom of the elemnt cage.but have your venting checked or swept out.

The dryer may be free of lint, but what about the vent that comes out of the dryer into the wall, than also the vent going through the wall to the outside. This is where the problem usually is. Try and check the vent outside the house. Feel how much air is blowing out. It should be pretty strong, not just a light breeze. Even a small restriction in airflow will cause the heat to shhut off prematurely. Its a very good idea to include professional dryer vent cleaning as part of the yearly maintanance. This is one of ythe leading causes of dryer fires. Hope this helps, dave www.washermd.com
