1st check the breakers
2nd check wiring in back to see connections are secure.
3rd check element. It would be burned in two.
4th check thermal overload switch which is located underneath top of dryer. Easy to remove top. Probably 4-6 screws.

    Your best bet would be to call your local appliance repairman and let him look at it. While he is there, have him show you the breaker panel in case something else in the future should give you a problem. If you can, use the company you bought the dryer from in your town or city. It may cost as little as 50-75 dollars to look at. He can tell you the approx cost. Then at that point, you can decide to either have it fixed or buy a new one. A good rule of thumb is if the dryer is much older than 10-12 years you would be better off getting a new one. Lowes, Sears, has a good one for about 350-400. They do have financing if needed. I am sorry I can't be of more help, but this may be your only alternative at this point. The best of luck

Dryer is not heating up.


90% of electric dryers emitting cold air need a new heating element installed. If you've checked the thermal fuse, and verified the unit has around 220 volts of power, then the only thing left is the heating element. Typically costs around $40-$60. Can be done by you if you have basic electrical knowledge, otherwise call an electrician.

Kenmore series 90 electric dryer: exhaust air is


that's normal,obviously you haven't cleaned out your dryer and vent line,nobody ever tells the customer when you buy your dryer that it should be cleaned out at least once a year so you don't have a fire more so if it's a gas dryer with an open flame inside the dryer,you gotta vac out the inside where the motor is,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and blow out the vent line,i use a leaf blower to clean out the vent line,take it off the back of the dryer,stick the leaf blower in the line if it's a long run if it runs through the wall and to the outside flapper and blow all the **** out of it,also if you have a shop vac put it on blow and blow off the motor,you won't believe how much lint comes off the motor even though it looks clean,so vac out the inside of dryer,clean out the lint filter duct and blow out the vent line

Kenmore dryer replaced heting element now it does not blow any air


HI danon this dryer its common to have the blower wear out, it slides on the motor shaft, and what they do is wear out the flat in the blower. that could have caused the element to fail. check the blower thanks the appliance doc. please rate my answer. thanks
