Question about Kenmore Dryers
Does not get hot. It turns on, but takes about three cycles to dry a small load.
It could be the element,or maybe your dryer vent is pluged. Pull your dryer out and check to see if it is full of lint.

Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it.

this is an airflow problem. make sure you are using a rigid metal duct behind the machine and not a flexible one. clean out the exhaust duct behind the dryer and in the wall all the way to the outside. any residue of lint inside these ducts will increase drying time dramatically. basically clean everywhere the air flows.

Could be 2 things... either your heat source is out of repair or your vent is blocked. Since you say it only gets warm I'll assume the problem is with the gas coils inside the unit. These parts are replaceable

If your dryer is STILL heating, but you are experiencing longer dry times and/or poor drying efficiency, the following link can give you some things to check before you assume there is a malfunction with your dryer:
The number one cause of dryer heat related problems is poor exhaust ventilation. If not vented properly, a dryer will not dry efficiently, will actually take longer than required to dry, and will cause the heating circuits to overheat to the point of failure. The dryer will actually seem hotter than usual in many cases as the heating circuits begin to overheat. This is also the source of many fire hazards if not resolved. Read through the link provided and review some of the potential causes.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information is helpful.
NOTE: If you thoroughly check everything and still have problems let me know. The problem could be related to a thermostat failure.
