Sounde like you have a clogged vent line be shure the vent hose is not cinked in any waty that would restrict the air flow. Next turn the dryer on and make sure you and a good flow of air out side the house if the air is not blowing out the vent out side you will need to clean this out or have it cleaned.

2 things can cause this. 1st the felt bearing at the front that the tub rides on may be worn the 2nd is the rear bearing that the tub actually attaches into. one of these is bad or going bad.

Kenmore dryer gets really hot on top of the dryer, not while clothes are drying but when finished, kinda scary?


Remember heat rises. However if it burns your hand or you can smell something you need to unplug the power to it asap. Most of them come with a one year in home service repair. It takes a while the heating elements to get hot in the dryer so that's probably why it seems its getting hot on top after the clothes have been in for a while.

Kenmore front load dryer will not heat


Most likely a bad thermo-fuse also called a high limit. Not hard to fix and cost little.

Overheating/burnt rubber smell


classical sign of a bad motor. the motor has a thermal switch on it telling the unit to shut off when it gets hot. after it cools down, the switch will tell the motor to turn back on again. good luck, i'm pretty sure that's your problem. contact me for further help if needed. thanks :)

Disconnect the vent from the back of the dryer and dry a load unvented too make sure you don't have lint built up in the vent line causing an air flow restriction.

this is an airflow problem. make sure you are using a rigid metal duct behind the machine and not a flexible one. clean out the exhaust duct behind the dryer and in the wall all the way to the  outside. any residue of lint inside these ducts will increase drying time dramatically. basically clean everywhere the air flows.
