A power surge could have blown the heater fuse under the top lid on the back wall,that is also where the heating element is,you can unplug the dryer and check them both if you have a omns meter,if you can't call your local appliance repair man(not sears $85 to knock on your door)and you know what he is going to look for and can't rip you off,let me know how you make out-mike

Why isn't My Kenmore Heavy Duty 70 Series Soft Heat Extra Capacity Electric Dryer drying clothes on any one cycle?


One possibility: Air flow! Make sure that the lint trap is cleaned before each cycle. You likely need to thoroughly clean out the vent piping out the back of the machine- a buildup of lint in here can also restrict airflow.

Hi,

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

It takes at least 2 cycles to dry clothes. It is Roper heavy duty high capacity electric dryer. Thank you for any help you can give me. janebellard@yahoo.com


Check for air restrictions which cause the heat control to shut down faster than normal.
When the moisture cannot be removed fast enough the heat builds up and has nowhere to go so the heat control stays off longer and the clothes just tumble on.

Hello, I have Amana LG4309W heavy duty gas dryer.


sounds like one of the supply fuses at the house panel,these 240 volt dryers are wired so the timer is on one phase(120)volt and the motor is on the opposite phase(120)volt and the heating element is on both phases for a combined 240 volts,if you lose one phase you either wont get motor operation or timer operation,and for sure no heat and you have the timer so you have 120volts

Dryer runs but no heat


lean the exhaust vent tubes thoroughly and try again to heat up
a sensor in your dryer will shut down the heat if lint build up is present

Dryer is not heating up to dry clothes


The spark ignitor maybe at fault. Listen for the clicking noise upon starting it up the first 30 seconds it runs. If not heard it is in need of a replacement

2 to 3 cycles to fully dry clothes


if the clothes are warm after the cycle then you need to make sure the vent to the outside of the house is not plugged if they are not warm then it is in the heating circuit of the dryer wether it be the element or a fuse will have to be tested. to dry clothes it takes heat and air flow if you dont have one of the two they will not dry correctly
