It may be the thermostat on the heating element. There are two on the side of the element, and one on the left side near the vent return. . If any one of these goes bad the drying will stop. I replaced each one at a time and the very last one I replaced was the one that was bad. Now I am back in business (laundry that is). I replaced the thermostates and my drying starting drying the clothes better than before. Try this before replacing the element, it is much cheaper (only $39.00) than replacing the element. FYI, they will check these thermostates at your parts store for you for free if you ask. . Women's Lib!! I fixed it myself. Good Luck, Kathy in SC

SOURCE: Kenmore 90 series electric dryer blowing cold air only

1st check the breakers
2nd check wiring in back to see connections are secure.
3rd check element. It would be burned in two.
4th check thermal overload switch which is located underneath top of dryer. Easy to remove top. Probably 4-6 screws.

Kenmore 110.66902690 electric dryer does not dry completely


Dear Barry,
Try 2 things.
One, be certain the clothes are very dry coming out of the washing machine.
If the washer leaves the clothes wet ( like the belt might be slipping), it can take the dryer forever to finish drying the clothes.
You can tell by hand-wringing them.
You should not be able to get any water out of them by hand-wringing after they have spun dry in the washer.
Two, try running a load with the vent hose unhooked off the back of the dryer.
If this fixes the problem, you are having a "clogged vent" issue somehow.
Be blessed.

Dryer heats, tumbles clothes, blows air out exhause vent, but wont dry clothes


what type is this electric or gas? have you removed the exsaust from the wall and ran a load like this? if you have heat and this is an electric dryer it sounds like you have a blockage in your house. if the dryer runs fine without the exsaust attached then that is your problem. let me know

Won't dry clothes


Try running the dryer with the vent pipe unplugged. There should be a lot of hot air coming out, if not the insides need to be cleaned. If it really moves air, and dries a load ok unhooked, your vent is clogged. Clean it if you can. If you can't, look into a lint trap that will work for your situation, some have a water trap, some are good filters, etc. If the air is not hot, some of the electric element may be bad. If it's gas, it could need a tune up and cleaning inside.

Dryer works for few minutes then stops


clothes can open the door if door latch is weak, causing door opening and stopping the cycle, or a bad automatic sensor

Extremely low drum heat but setting is on HIGH.


Electric (Kenmore - 60931) dryer takes forever (several cycles) lately to dry clothes set on high heat (actual heat in tub feels low though). There are no obstructions in the venting and the 240 volt connection is fine. The timer rotates the dial (timer motor working). Help!!!
