Kenmore dryer 10+ years old model 86376100 63761

Suddenly lint is coming out either from behind the dryer or under the dryer. I just had the vent cleaned professionally. I clean the lint filter after each load. What could be the matter?

Make sure that the lint vent is attached properly to both the outside wall and the dryer. Also make sure that it did not get a hole punctured in it either

Dryer has Heat but NO AIR


Many of these have a belt driven blower wheel, could be a broken belt or it came off, There was also a bulliten out on several models where the blower wheel would come loose from the drive shaft, the fix was to re attach using a medium body thread lock compound so it would not unscrew again.

you need to clean out the dryer.somewhere lint is blocking the air movement.pull off the vent line,if it's long blow it out with a leaf blower,then clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and vac out the cabinet where the motor is.if it's gas you should do this once a year electric once every two years.

My kenmore dryer starts, gets hot,runs for 10 minutes and then stops. Could it be the thermostat?


how old is the dryer?sounds like the motor is bad,you could read out the thermostats but usually when they go the dryer will still run.alot of times i go in and the motor is covered with lint,it's like a blanket on top of the motor overheating it,people don't know that the dryer should be cleaned out,you need to blow out the vent line,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and vac out the inside of the dryer,i do it once a year and my dryer is 17 years old.next time send model number,i can look up your dryer and tell you how much a motor is and give you the part number,it's not that hard to change out the motor

You are on the right track by cleaning the vent elbow.

Also check:

The entire vent line to the outside diverter (the little thing that looks like a hood). Depending on your dwelling, the vent line can also become obstructed with lint and sometimes other things like bird's nests, especially near the discharge outlet. This can happen when the flapper valve at the outlet sticks.

Make sure the lint screen is always kept clean

Another thing to try - empty the dryer and pull it away from the wall until you can get behind it. Disconnect the vent line and turn the dryer on air only. The air velocity coming out of the dryer air exhaust line should feel pretty strong. If it doesn't, the fan could be full of lint as well or there could be an issue with the exhaust fan itself. If the fan is plugged or bad, the back of the dryer will have to be removed and the fan checked.

The dryer should not be overloaded and be sure the clothes being dried aren't too wet (possibly indicating a washer spin cycle issue).

Pilot working but will not dry completely.


Check the burner vents--both intake and outlet for lint plugging. With the pilot working, it is supposed to heat a thermocouple which generates electricity that opens the main gas valve.

Kenmore dryer...How to remove toe panel to clean lint out.


Insert a putty knife into the seam where it meets the front panel about 2 inches in from each side. There is a small retainer clip that you will need top depress in order for the panel to release. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and enter your model number, you can find a helpful illustration under the "Cabinet" heading. The clips I mention are listed as item 46 just ot give you a perspective. I would also strongly recommend that you UNPLUG the dryer before cleaning the interior cabinet. There are live voltages present even with the dryer turned off. Particulary around the heating circuits. I hope you find this information helpful.

Electric dryer lint


You are purchasing new dryers when the problem is your vent line. The fact that your old dryer is now working in a different home, and your new dryer still has the same problem as the old dryer, leads me to suggest that you reroute your vent line some how. Your dryer vent line is really too long. The fact that you've added two 90 degree bends also leads to the issue of lint build up problems by creating added resistnace. It's a simple theory of operation when it comes to dryers. The SHORTER and STRAIGHTER the vent line the BETTER. All vent hoses create some resistance to air flow. It is typical in longer runs that the lines build up and accumulation of fine lint over a period time which adds weight to the line. This can cause the line to sag and restrict lint even more. Any bend in the line (especially 90 degree bends) also create points of resistance where lint tends to build up. This eventually leads to clogs, longer dry times, dryer overheating and eventual failure of the appliance. Purchasing higher end models does not necessarily equate to better performance. Many of your low end Kenmore, Maytag and Whirlpool models are great dryers and last years with proper care and maintenance. Even though you don't have this configuration, I thought I might add that it's also a bad idea to have vent lines that run vertical (such as in an attic). Dryer exhaust has moisture content from the clothes. When the lint mixes with this moisture it becomes more dense. If you have a vent line that runs vertical, this line will eventually settle at the lowest point of the vent line (which is usually right where it enters the wall). Reroute your vent line and shorten it and I bet your problems will go away. It's cheaper to spend the money on some semi-rigid vent hose than several hundreds on another appliance that will probably give you the same results. I hope this helps you,
