Question about Kenmore 63012 Electric Dryer
I bought this electric dryer new in 2003 and, IMO, it has never dried correctly. I use the moisture sensing cycles almost exclusively and when I run a load of cotton bath towels on the highest setting, it gets hot and tumbles for about 90 minutes then buzzes, but the towels are still pretty damp. I end up running the load about 3 times to get the towels totally dry - a real pain. Loads are not excessively large (actually running smaller loads due to the amount of time it takes to dry), regularly clean the lint trap and have cleaned the vent connected to the dryer and the vent in the house - no improvement. Thoughts or suggestions?
I think your vent has lint in the line between the wall and the outside of your house not allowing the moisture to get out
1 when the dryer is running go outside and observe the vent to see if hot air is coming out
2 Turn dryer off, disconnect electric from wall
3 pull dryer out from wall
4 take a nut driver or screw and remove the clamp that attaches the flex vent pipe to the wall
4 Also remove the flex pipe from the dryer
5 Inspect inside vent connection inside dryer for any trapped lint
6 inspect inside flex line for any lint
7 Look inside wall vent for lint you can also reach in with your hand to feel for lint
8 If you have a leaf blower or can borrow one(electric is best) from your neighbor put the snout of the blower into the vent going into the wall seal the area between the snout and the vent pipe at the wall ( i use duct tape you can use wash clothes rags etc
9 start blower and blow any lint in the line out through outside THIS WILL CLEAR THE LINT
10 Reattach the flex to the wall vent and dryer , plug in. run a load and you should be back in business
