Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer
My dryer was working perfectly fine before i moved into my new APT. The first time i tried using it at the new apartment it started just fine and i left it for the whole cycle of 80 mins. I came back to try and take out the clothes to fold and realized nothing was dry. My husband tried switching the power cables on the back but still nothing. HELP
Don't know if you fixed your dryer problem yet.if it worked fine at your old place and now you're having problems at the new house how did you vent the dryer outside?if you hooked your dryer onto a vent line that was there the line could be blocked with lint and popped either the thermal fuse or the high linit thermostat or it's just coincidence that you have a problem right after the move.if you still need help with this let me know and i'll be happy to help you,if you open the door and look around the opening you'll see a tag with the model number,if you send this i can look up your dryer to see what parts are in it.thanks

Jimbo, this dryer uses a cyling thermostat to turn the heater on and off. If your vent is pinched or clogged, or the vent to the outside is clogged, you are going to have long dry times and damp clothes. Try doing a load with the vent disconnected from the back of the dryer. If everything turns out ok, then it's a venting issue. Catriver

I would like to thank the ones who responded to giving me a 'hand' in repairing my dryer. I did like you said & changed out the coils & now the dryer is working like it should.

Make sure that your vent tube is not kinked or crushed behind the dryer and it all this is ok then you need to change your cycling thermostat. is it gas or electric

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.
if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....
If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.
