Kenmore Gas Dryer Model 72841: seems to be overheating. Even on low setting, clothes can be *very* hot to the touch if checked before cooldown part of cycle. Is this normal, or is there a problem?


Hello,

No its abnormal the maximum operating temp is 155 degrees,the first thing to check is the vent for obstructions,espically outside since most houses have a covering over the vent that builds up with lint and blocks airflow, if the vent if fine ALL THE WAY from dryer to outdoors the thermister is defective

My electric dryer is becoming extremely hot during the drying cycle. I replaced a blown thermal fuse several weeks ago and the dryer was extremely hot at that time. The dryer runs but becomes so hot you...


Clothes will get very hot in the dry cycle, especially when the dryer is set to the warmest or hottest setting.
There are controls built into the unit to prevent it from overheating to the point of causing a fire. The thermal fuse you replaced is one of them (and I assume you replaced a perfectly good fuse with a new one as you said it was very hot.).
You might want to check the following if you feel the unit is getting too hot -

1) Make sure the lint screen is clean.
2) Make sure the hose between the back of the dryer and the exhaust duct at the wall wall is not kinked or full of lint.
3) Make sure the exhaust duct leading to outside of the house is clear and not full of lint.

Let me know what you find.

You didn't mention if the dryer is getting hot.


If is getting hot, then shutting off, I agree with you.

Kenmore HE 3.8 washer has only hot water even with cold settings


If the washer fills very slowly when you have it on a cold setting the cold water may be shut off behind you washer or possibly the hot and cold are switched. if that is not the problem then you have a relay problem with the machines electrical system.
