Make sure your vent screen is clear of lint, You should also check the actual vent duct which comes out the back of the dryer. It sounds like there is blockage of dust and lint which is not allowing the dryer to properly heat up.

DLE7177RM is not drying. We are getting heat but not enough to dry anything. A few weeks ago we noticed a lot of condensation on the floor but then it disappeared. Could we have a seal problem?


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Kenmore 110.70982990 front loading gas dryer. Everything seems to work, except the flame stays on for only 5-10 seconds, and therefore does not produce enough heat. Lights up again after a few minutes,...


Remove the exhaust vent from the rear and try a load of laundry.
If ir dries correctly,clean and or repair the connecting exhaust vent.
It may also be necessary to disassemble the dryer and clean internal ducts.

Dryer will produce heat but will not dry clothes


Greetings,
several things to check...i usually pull the vent off of dryer and run load of cloths..if it drys ok...we know the vent was the issue..if its vented to the roof..the screen usually gets stopped up inside the hood. if it still doe's not dry with the vent off. there has to be an air circulation problem.. Check the blower wheel fitting tight enough...they come loose, but normally have noise along with it...

My dryer spins and heat just a little but not enough to dry any clothes


Need to change the heater filament. The heater filament has several portions to produce heat. As it ages, some portions are not producing heat anymore hence the total heat produced by an old filament can not put out as much as originally designed.

Model DLE7177RM, takes about 3 hours to dry a load of clothes. Dryer is NOT overloaded.


Does the dryer heat up or is it just cool air drying the clothes ? If it does actually dry the clothes eventually then it sounds like it is heating up. First thing to check would be exhaust hose. Is warm air blowing out of it ? If warm you got heat. If cool then your heating element isn't working. It should be fairly strong current of very warm air. If weak but warm, then somewhere between lint filter and end of hose you have a blockage caused by lint buildup or hose is bent and blocking air flow. Check hose first. You can disassemble lint trap and go beyond the lint screen into metal duct within dryer and clean with a long brush and vacuum. You can also disconnect exhaust duct flexible hose at back of dryer and work through metal duct from that end too. If you notice increased air flow then it should solve problem,
