Unplug the unit for one hour and then plug it back in. This should be ample time to reset the microporcessor on the control board. Let me know if this works.

Waiting to hear from you,

My clothes are taking up to 4 hours to dry..


Verify unrestricted air flow at the outside discharge port for the dryer. If in doubt, pull the hose from the rear of the dryer, turn it on and form an opinion about air flow volume, then outside must be very similar.

I have a kenmore HE2 dryer and matching washer. It is 3 years old. It works and eventually clothes do dry. It does heat up. But it doesn't heat up as hot as it used to and it takes twice as long to dry...


Make sure you check your exhaust line and where the air blows to the outside. If your exhaust vent or hose is bent or restricted it will take a very long time to dry the clothes. Sometimes the vent flap on the outside exhaust is stuck shut. Clear dryer exhaust venting is critical for proper operation. Several companies offer a vent cleaning service where they completely clean out the exhaust lines.

''Time remaining'' doesn't seem to work anymore on HE2 Gas Dryer


It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Dryer doesnt dry clothes


If your kenmore electric dryer is not heating anymore, the problem can be with the element, with the thermal fuse, or rarely with the control timer , see below from repairclinic: What is wrong with your Dryer?
