Not familiar with this model but it sounds like too little water is being used (small, medium, large load) or a rinse cycle is being skipped.
With enough water and normal rinse cycles, the lint should be suspended and pumped down the drain. If this is happening with every load, then it isn't working properly.

My Kenmore washer does not have a lent trap ,so where does the lent go ?

The lint goes out with the drain water, most of it. The rest of the lint gets attached to your clothes. If you have a much older machine, you will see gray streaks of stuff sticking to your clothes, sheets, etc...and that's the lint.

I have a whirlpool model# Ler4634pq0 electric dryer. Heats ok, takes 3 cycles to dry clothes. Cleaned vent hose, cleaned internal duct system, cleaned lent screen, and holes inside drum. Any ideas?

If you 've done all of that and it still doesn't dry properly, you may have a faulty limit switch. These limits switches are usually down by the burner assembly and not much bigger than a quarter with generally 2 wires going to them. Very easy to replace once you find it. Unplug the dryer before you work on it.

I have a maytag washier and it is working but it makes a lot of noise -it sounds like jam Model number is MAV2755AWW Serial number is 27422854JT

Your Maytag washer may vibrate or make some noise during normal operation. If vibration and noise are excessive, however, you'll need to troubleshoot the problem. The two main reasons for such an issue are overloading and nonlevel installation. Overloading can be corrected by putting less clothing into the washer before you run a cycle. It can be corrected mid-cycle by removing clothing articles from the washer mid-cycle. It's also very important that you make sure that your washer is located on a firm, completely level surface. Otherwise it may create severe vibration and noise, possibly even enough to damage the machine or nearby items.

Dryer has heat..but very low temp , takes forever

Make sure that your vent pipe is completely clear of excess lent. It will not dry properly if the venting is not running freely. If the unit is cleared of lent, inside and out, the only other possibility is the thermostat is not reading correctly.
