I have a kenmore 90 series that takes forever to dry cloths. It dryes the cloths but it takes much longer than normal. The filters are clean and the dryer vent is clean as well. Do these driers have more than one heater element?

it sounds like your dryer stat real name t.o.c. you will need a engerneer to do this the job should cost no more then £40 pound ring a round for a call out the cheapperst is not all ways the best ok so make sure you ring 4 to 5 guys just tell them the problem and they should say the same if they dont get back to me and i will try for you see if i can get some one to help you in your area ok
aslong as the ignitor is glowing red then a click frome the flame switch and lights the burner tube and continues to repeat this over then dryer is ok ...... take venting off back of dryer and do a test load .... that will solve if it's a venting problem... if dryer dryes clothes with venting off back of dryer then it is a venting problem ..... from vent tube to out side exhaust... if dryer dosent dry clothes with vent off then u need to replace the gas coils black cylinders on top of gas valve... cost around $30.00 and very easy to installl 2 phillips screws in bracket cap on top of the coils slide off and replace one at a time there is a large coil and small coil and they both come in same kit and need to go back in the same spot they came off in ....part numbers..# 306106 306105 or recheck your model number off dryer data plate and order off sears.com
first clean the pip from the unit to the outsde vent. then inside your unit there are 2 felts that need to be cahnge, over time they go bad and the heat run out the drum and you can feel the hood is hot but it still not to good . it will save you electric bill when you fix it. :)
Your heating element is good. It should read between 9 to 13 ohms. If the heating circuits are working, then you don't have a problem with the heating circuits. The numbe ron cause of drye heat related problems, or longer dry times, is poorly installed, or clogged ventilation. A simple test to try is to remove the exhaust vent hose from the back of the dryer and attempt to dry a load of clothes as you normally would. The air escaping the exhaust should be forceful and warm (about 140 degrees).
If the air flow is normal, and your clothes dry normally, the problem is with your exhaust ducting from the point where it leaves your dryer to where it exits your home. I would recommend you inspect the entire length of your exhaust ventliation to make sure it is free of kinks or clogs if this is the case.
If the air flow is weak, then the problem is INTERNAL to the dryer. The most common source of the problem is a clog in the blower fan housing preventing air to flow properly. Remove the blower fan housing cover and clean as necessary. Make sure the blower fan can turn unobstructed.
Let me know if you still have problems. I hope this helps you.
Hi, First chech the vent. I would try and hook up a shop vac that can blow out or I have used an electric leaf blower. The lead blower is great because it has so much power. In your situation with the vent taking the path it does, you will need a lot of air. Another option is to unhook the vent from the dryer and try drying a load of laundry. If it dryes fast, you can be sure it is the vent.
Because this is an electric dryer, the vent is most common problem.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
