Kenmore 70 series dryer leaving brown marks

Hello! I have an older Kenmore Heavy Duty 70 series dryer, Extra Capacity, Soft Heat. Model number: 96573220 65732. It has begun leaving brown marks, like burn streaks, on my clothes. I have seen other users with similar problems and was hoping someone might show me where and how I can replace the felt drum gasket seal (which is what I suspect is the problem). Where can I find parts for this and how do I go about installing them? Thank you in advance for the help!

Why isn't My Kenmore Heavy Duty 70 Series Soft Heat Extra Capacity Electric Dryer drying clothes on any one cycle?


One possibility: Air flow! Make sure that the lint trap is cleaned before each cycle. You likely need to thoroughly clean out the vent piping out the back of the machine- a buildup of lint in here can also restrict airflow.

Kenmore dryer shuts off after five minutes


The vent box inside the dryer still has lint in it. You need to reach way inside to get at it. Turn power off.

I have a Kenmore Heavy Duty, super capacity, quiet


It sounds like your heating element has broken. There are several links provided on this site on how to replace it. You might want to take a look at davesrepair.com to purchase a new one. He has pretty good prices on the element.

Dryer timer is not working and won't heat but runs fine


check the ignitor. That's a very common cause for no heat in a gas dryer. other possibilities are the coils, or it could be that you have a bad fuse in the dryer.
