Question about Dryers
I have a Kenmore gas dryer (about 15 years old), 70 series, model#76722691 76722. The dryer runs and blows air, it tumbles but does not blow warm air and does not dry the clothes. I replaced the "thermal fuse" but it still does not blow warm air.
If this is the electric version then after 15 years you probably need a new heating element, they are not difficult to install and are not terribly expensive as a DIY project.

Look at the bottom of your front panel and see if you can see a screw on either side about 2-3 inches from the very bottom edge of the front panel. If so take them out and pull the bottom away far enough to disengage the top of the front panel from the top panel. If this works for ya. then now you have it openened, if not repost me.

what type is this electric or gas? have you removed the exsaust from the wall and ran a load like this? if you have heat and this is an electric dryer it sounds like you have a blockage in your house. if the dryer runs fine without the exsaust attached then that is your problem. let me know

The first thought I have is about the gas supply. If you had natural gas at the old house and now have propane or visa versa you need to change the orifices in the dryer as gas flow is different. Also, if the gas line some how got a kink in it when the dryer was being installed that too would restrict the flow of gas.

or bad solonoids on your gas vale
check your lint filter
and exhaust outside to be clear of cloggs with good airflow while running
