Hello, I have Kenmosre 90 series dryer. Did a load ealier today, and it was fine. Went back to put another load in and realised NO heat was on, absolutley no heat in the dryer, the air inside is room...

you may need a heating element. You can go to your locale appliance store and buy the element & install it yourself . Just make sure you take All your dryer info, (etc; the dryer model, make, yr & the serial # ) this info is easy to find, its located inside the dryer door. Just call around your locale area and ask them how much it is for the heating element, for your dryer. It should be rather cheap compared to the cost of Kenmore appliance company coming out to fix it for you. The heating element is rather easy to install. I have installed a few in my own dryers and in my hot water heater.
Thank you.

I wonder if I should buy Reebok Men's Atr Make It Rain Basketball Shoe. I'm looking for a good basketball shoe which is not too expensive. Any review on this shoe will be appriciated. Thanks!!

Hi, I bought the shoes for my son Marco and they are great! Light, flexible, and most of all they dry the moisture completely by the great amount of holes all round the shoes. Marco usually sweats a lot in his feets, now he's almost dry after practice. I wish all the next shoes from Reebok would by like this, I would always buy them. Thank you Reebok! Buy them no doubt!!

How do i install the shoe rack in the dryer

It is a trapezoid, the wide end goes toward the door and lines up with the lint trap. You cannot support two boots, or heavy shoes. It just balances in the rim of the door frame. The handle shaped things face down. You kind of have to pinch it into place, and it just rests there, too much weight and it will topple in. Good luck if you have big feet.

Dryer heats but quit spinning

Your belt has come off or has broken. Do you hear the motor running? If so, then the belt is broke or off.

Kenmore dryer no heat

If the dryer runs - but no heat is produced, there are usually two things that it would normally be - first turn the dryer on and go outside and check the flow at the duct. If the flow at the duct is weak (should be nice and strong) then you more than likely just have a clogged up duct - clean it out and you should see a big difference in airflow and time to dry things. If the air flow is good but there still is no heat - you may have a heater bank that went out, or a hi limit switch that was set

Kenmore heavy duty dryer

You didn't mention if the motor runs or if it heats. If it does both of these, you'll need a new belt.

Dryer spins fine but no heat

First and most importantly you have to be sure the venting is completly clear of debris and lint. Then remove and inspect the heating element and all thermostats with a multi-meter. Unless your familiar with this type of procedure you might consider calling a technician. Your wasting too much energy and money drying clothes for 2 hours. Technician much cheaper in long run. Good Luck tatau.
