Question about Dryers
Hello I have a Kenmore clothes dryer (80 series) and it having a problem,the motor is working and the heat is coming in the dryer but the part where the clothes go to get dry is not turning ,what could be the problem ? and what can I do to fix this problem? I would be very grateful for your help ,I cannot afford to buy a new one at this time so I would like to fix this one with your help of course ,thank you so much.and have a great day.
Hi Dave. The problem is the drive belt. They aren't that difficult to replace and can be done with just a few tools. I'll need the exact model number off of the dryer to explain how to gain access to it, though. The number can be found behind the door on the cabinet (it'll start with 3 digits then a decimal point then more digits, like this; xxx.xxxxxxx)
The part number for the repair is 4392065. This is a complete maintenance kit for your dryer. I recommend it because since your belt wore out, there are other parts that should be taken care of at the same time. Here's a picture and a place to order if you can't find it locally.

My Kenmore 80 series dryer takes about 3 or 4 times before the clothes are fully dry. The motor runs and the drum tumbles but the problem is with the heat.Thanks!

I have a Kenmore Dryer and just purchased the part I needed the problem is I took 2 other parts off before and want to make sure I get the right connections on. I have a MH4233 Kenmore 80 Series Model 66822694. Do you have any instructions that tell how to put back on the coil and 2 thermostats.

Sounds as though the drive belt is broken or loose,check the pulley on the motor.Feel the belt if it's just loose you might be able to tighten it otherwise you will probably need to replace it.Regards Bigfoot57.

Sounds like you have a simple broken belt problem. If you are sure the motor is working and the heating circuits are functioning, but the drum does not turn, the drum belt probably broke. They are inexpensive to replace and are carried by almost any appliance repair store.

Remove the connecting vent on the rear and run a timed load 45 minutes. If it dries correctly repair the vent blockage.

Tips for a great answer:
Kenmore 80 Series of dryers are consumer grade dryers for home use. As
with most home appliances, the Kenmore 80 series dryers will
occasionally not work as intended. If a problem occurs with your dryer,
however, you do not necessarily need it serviced by a technician. You
can attempt to troubleshoot and fix any problems with your dryer before
contacting a technician.
