Yes it has to vent out the back into the yard or garage, something like that

There are dryer venting kits available at Home Depot etc.

It is also possible your filter is clogged or that the vent itself is clogged if you have one already

If your machine is a wd640 this is a condensing washer dryer and requires only the waste water outlet hose and not a vent hose it dose need the inlet water supply to be turned on
hope this helps

Takes to long to dry clothes


after checking and replacing the vent going outside still the air was not venting and inside my drier everything was wet although the air was hot. After removing the rear panel i saw the blower belt disconnected. it took me some time to get the belt on but everything is ok and the air is venting and clothes getting dried. Also note that the little pulley came off its positio too.

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.

My dryer gets hot but does not dry efficiently. Clothes are still very damp after more than 1.5 hours. I noticed that the lint trap is not really gathering any lint.


your problem might be in the actual vent to the outside. If the vent to the outside from the drier has a clog and will need to be cleaned. Without the proper ventallation the clothes will not dry. I suggest pulling the drier out and removeing the vent hose that connects to the outside and clean it. Once this is done you shouldn't have any problems

Hope this helped

Drier not heating


Your dryer lint vent pipe out the back of the machine or maybe out the side is plugged. You have to pull the machine out and clear that pipe or rebuild it out to a soffit vent or static vent if it is in the attic, or out through your crawl space. This will make a huge difference. If that hot air and moisture doesn't get out of the machine it just goes back into your clothes.
Good luck!!

Disconnect the vent at the back of the dryer and dry a load unvented to make sure you don't have a clog in the vent line too the outside causing an air flow restriction, if still not drying check and make sure the blower wheel that circulates the heat inside the dryer isn't broken.

Dryer heats up but isn't drying properly


yes it does something is blocking your vent either its all coiled up behind the drier or something i need to ask a few questions go out side and look at where your drier vent has a hood make sure nothing is blocking it from opening it has a little round door on it ive seen some that have little plastic screens on them that gets clogged the screen is there to keep critters from building nests in the vent line then get a flash light and look over the back to see if the vents folded over mashed etc to find out if its a vent problem take your vent loose dry a load and see if it goes back to normal if all that's ok get back to me and we will clean the drier i need to know if your lint screen is on top or in door and your model #

Kenmore dryer


this promblem is about always a vent promblem or not cleaning the drier filter if your using the plastic vent check if its mashed behind the drier you must have 4inch of vent all the way throuch if its mashed or folded over its cut down to 2inches if it hangs under your house then comes up to the outside vent housing it can fill with water if the outside hood door isnt oping that will do it too its in your vent some where what i tell cust to do is run 4inch pvc from out side hood up through floor then run short metel vent to pvg attach with clamp to confirm vent restriction take vent loose for one load and see if it dries in right amount of time
