The dryer turns on but isn't warming up so clothes are not drying.


Look for goop on the dryer sensing bars. get some windex and clean them . The moisture sensing bars send back resistance readings to the control. No moisture sensed and the control thank they ain't no wetness in them clothes, it goes for cooldown and shuts down with wet clothes.
thats one scenaio. if that don't fix it we will go to the next step. let me know

Hi and Welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

You already have discovered the problem. Lint has built up in the vent / exhaust ducting. Most of the time the through the wall vent flapper gets lint build up on it outside the house and then as that restricts airflow you get condensation in the ducting. The condensation causes the lint to form a cake like paste inside the ducting. THOROUGHLY Clean out your vent ducting from the dryer connection all the way thru the outside wall and your dryer will be fine. If you need to replace the ducting please do so. Ducting is cheaper than the electricity you waste on clogged ducting. You proved your dryer will work correctly when you dried a load of clothes with the ducting removed.

Thanks for choosing FixYa

Puddle of water in the dryer


The water comes from condensation inside the dryer ducting and drum. Heavy condensation can occur when the dryer exhaust ducting becomes clogged.

As your dryer runs, it exhausts warm moist air from your clothing. If lint becomes trapped inside the ducting, or if the ducting is kinked, this moisture has no where to go, but condensate inside the walls of the ducting and/or drum. If lint becomes accumulated it can act as a sponge and absorb this moisture.

I have had my Kenmore 600 dryer serviced twice. Today, a thermostat was replaced. The timer doesn't advance, the clothes won't dry and water is leaking from the duct. Is there a problem with this model?


I don't see a lot of complaints from this model. There can be some moister
from the dryer, but not water coming out of the duct, clean the rear duct of the dryer to the outside vent to make sure you have full air flow and so you don't cause a fire if it is full of lint. Then check your washer, are the clothes real wet after the cycle is done, they should not be that wet after they spin,
if it was me I would spin them twice or see if there is a option to spin longer if they seem wet.

Model #PYE2300AYW Dryer. Changed therm fuse. Died in 5 loads. Changed therm fuse/Hi limit. Died in one load. This is a fairly simple machine. Could op thermostat be taking all these out? Tnx


Your lint trap and/or ducting could be blocked. This will cause the machine to overheat and the thermal fuse shuts it off before it burns your house down.

Where is the thermal fuse located on the Performa dryer model PDET910AYW?


Hi. The fuse is mounted directly on the heater element, in between the heater duct, and duct exhaust.

Dryer stops after short time


I believe your exhaust duct with five 90 degree turns has weakened the limit switch in the exhaust pipe where the hot air leaves the dryer. Let me know if taking the hose loose will increase the dryers time. If not then we will need to replace the limit switch. Let me know as i will be able to help you further.

Clothes are drying slowly. Moisture is leaking


I also recently had the same kind of problem.

I took the front off the dryer, and the lint collector, past the screen, was FULL of lint, sand and dirt. Imagine balling up a large tshirt and stuffing it in there. That's how full!

I'd definately look at how to clean out the lint and exhaust lines as well as possible. That wet air has to be able to get out.

Kenmore Dryer Model 110.73952102


Yes, It is usually on the heating element tube. Don't just replace the fuse. You must find out what caused it to blow. You probablly have restricted air flow . Usually this is a clogged duct pipe or outside vent. This can also be caused by trying to operate the dryer with the door open. Before replacing the fuse, take the duct off the back of the dryer. Clean out what lint you can , turn on the dryer and see if you get good air flow. Next check the vent pipe for clogging and check the outside damper. DO NOT USE FLEXIBLE PLACTIC DUCT PIPE. It is a fire hazard and almost always clogs up fast. Another possible solution is that if it's an electric dryer, If the element burns out it can short out against the frame and cause it to overheat.
