I have a kenmore 110.87561601 dryer, it blows warm air but not hot, is this the norm for it?

Check power at the outlet. If you're not getting the full 240v then it'll come out warm but not hot. Otherwise I would go with the timer.

My Kenmore 400 series dryer has stop blowing hot air to dry my clothes. It blows room temperature air therefore, my clothes don't dry in a timely manner. How do I fix this problem? Thanks,

Hi Most ahve the same problem, maybe the dryer vent is plugged up , pull unit out and unplug it , remove vent and clean , then with a tester check over heat sensors at rear of dryer , they knid of look like diodes with two wires going to them , you could also by pass them with a jumper wire , BUT JUST TO TEST THEM ONLY ! it could also be th eelement , but most times it is a sensor form over heating unit , both are very cheep to fix,

No longer blows hot air, only cold air

when a dryer does'ny blow hot air,it's normally either the element or the stats on the element.

start dryer, go outside and see if vent is blowing hot air. If not then vent is clogged with lint, esp if vent has a curve or elbow in it. unhook vent at dryer or os vent and run a vacumn hose in as far as you can. easy way to determine if vent is to unhook at dryer and see if dryer blows air, could be just inside at vent opening

My dryer is ot blowing hot air

Remove the heater vent, then turn dryer on. Does this fix problem? If so then you have a block in your vent hose.

Kenmore dryer replaced heting element now it does not blow any air

HI danon this dryer its common to have the blower wear out, it slides on the motor shaft, and what they do is wear out the flat in the blower. that could have caused the element to fail. check the blower thanks the appliance doc. please rate my answer. thanks
