Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
I have a Kenmore dryer that is working but is not drying the clothes, or more correctly, takes a very long time to dry. What is likely the problem?
First thing you need to know is that heat is not all it takes to get your clothes dry. what you need is to get the moisture from the clothes out of the dryer. the only way this happens is with air flow and that is what you are lacking.
the way to find out is make sure your lint filter is clean, then check to see how much air is going out of the house. most likely the vent is pinched off behind the unit causing very little air flow. if the vent is straight and as short as possible, then you may need to have your vent cleaned out fro the unit to outside your house.
clean or fix the vent and if you can remove the vent from the dryer, let the air go into your laundry room and try a load that way, if it works then you know the vent is the problem.

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