Question about Kenmore 64952 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer installation Due to the specs of my laundry room in this apartment, my Kenmore flatback dryer was installed by maintenance today and the round coiled vent had to be smashed down pretty flat and bent at an angle. It is sandwiched right between the wall and dryer. Will this pose any problems with too much heat to the wall or air/lint not getting through?

Re: Dryer installation

Whether it is a plastic vent or an aluminum vent hose - you don't need to worry about heat. you do have a problem if it is really, really bent at an angle. the overall inside diameter is substantially reduced. lint that comes out of the dryer will catch at the ninety angle and clog. how obtrusive would it be if you maintain a four inch clearance at the rear of the dryer?

Hello, I have Kenmosre 90 series dryer. Did a load ealier today, and it was fine. Went back to put another load in and realised NO heat was on, absolutley no heat in the dryer, the air inside is room...

you may need a heating element. You can go to your locale appliance store and buy the element & install it yourself . Just make sure you take All your dryer info, (etc; the dryer model, make, yr & the serial # ) this info is easy to find, its located inside the dryer door. Just call around your locale area and ask them how much it is for the heating element, for your dryer. It should be rather cheap compared to the cost of Kenmore appliance company coming out to fix it for you. The heating element is rather easy to install. I have installed a few in my own dryers and in my hot water heater.
Thank you.

My GE dryer, model number DPSR610 is working great, however it seems to run too hot. It makes our laundry room very humid and the back metal plate is very hot to the touch. I would worry if anything was...

Check the vent in the back...

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

Here is the rest of this tip about Dryer Maintenance

My dryer in my apartment takes 3 or 4 hours to dry a small load of towels; everything else too for that matter. The laundry room is also very "linty" husband shortened the vent on the back hoping...

Your husband is on the right track... sounds like there is a clog somewhere in the venting or the venting is too long. You can check for a clog by locating the vent outlet outside and checking for airflow while the dryer is on. If you are in an apartment it may be a maint. issue you need addressed by the management. Please have it taken care of... Dryer vent fires are very common. If the apartment owner will not take care of it a duct cleaning professional or possibly a chimney sweep can clean it for you and make sure everything is OK

Laundry room flooded

could be as simple as a blown thermal fuse.  most places will allow credit for a service call toward purchase of a new machine if repairs are too costly

Dryer turned off suddenly

The dryer must have a blockage. Better check the vent and filter housing for excess lint buildup. These dryers have fuses mounted on the blower housing to kill the dryer before the thing catches on fire.

Install 220 outlet for electric dryer or trade it for gas dryer?

Thanks for all the input!  We reached a compromise in hiring an electrician who was willing to come out today and install the connection for half what everyone else quoted...on a Sunday!  The laundry piling up in the corner was very persuasive in convincing us that your advice (in the end, we'd need a professional no matter which way we went) was prudent.  Thanks. jersey p

Connect Gas Supply Pipe
(Gas Dryer ONLY)
For further assistance, refer to section on Gas
1. Make certain your dryer is equipped for use with the
type of gas in your laundry room. Dryer is equipped at
the factory for Natural Gas with a 3/8” N.P.T. gas
2. Remove the shipping cap from the gas connection at
the rear of the dryer. Make sure you do not damage the
pipe thread when removing the cap.
3. Connect to gas supply pipe using a new flexible
stainless steel connector.
4. Tighten all connections securely. Turn on gas and
check all pipe connections (internal & external) for
gas leaks with a non-corrosive leak detection fluid.
5. For L.P. (Liquefied Petroleum) gas connection, refer
to section on Gas Requirements.
