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

We have a long dryer line to the out side vent... how do we improve drying time... line is clear and we clean the lent from the dryer frequently...also, clean lent after every use..


If you may want to look into installing a booster fan for your vent line.
It can really help in cases such as yours when the vent line is extra long.

I have a Kenmore 80 series drying that is not getting hot.


Check your vent, make certain it is not full of lent. If that not it, it might be your heating elements.

MY KENMORE 80 SERIES DRYER ISN'T HEATING


remove the entire exhaust vent and clean it thoroughly. Any build up of lint inside of it will cause the moister sensor in the dryer to shut down the burner or grid which ever you have, gas or electric
After cleaning it and it still does not work correctly the sensor is at fault and needs to be replaced

I HAVE A KENMORE 400 SERIES DRYER. THE LENT NO LONGER STICKS TO THE FILTER. WHEN I PULL THE FILTER OUT TO CLEAN IT, THE LENT SLIDES OFF THE FILTER CONTINUALLY CLOGGING THE VENT IN THE BACK OF THE DRYER....


Try cleaning the filter to remove any residue from dryer sheets (a dish detergent solution should cut the softener build-up). Be as gentle as possible. An old toothbrush is useful for this.

Also, a weak exhaust flow may be the culprit. Check the dryer vent line all the way outside for excess lint.

Your fan impeller (inside the dryer) may be loaded with lint, too.

Make sure that your vent is clean of lent. If your vent clean, then it is your element.
