Question about Kenmore Dryers
My dryer arced. I replaced bracket mount and wires now it takes a long time for clothes to dry even if they dry at all. Help please
When you replace the brackets etc, you obviously disconected the heating element that surrounds the back of the drum (it is hidden behind the drum and behind the external casings)
my advice is to check that all wiring connecting the heating element to the module are conected correctly, and ensure that the heating element is in the correct housing places, but im sure you have either damaged the heating element (this will be confirmed if all wiring is in correct place) or the wiring is not conected properly.
when you dismantal an aplience in future do this:
get a notepad and pen and create an inventry (with drawing illustrations) of what you have dismantaled, how it goes back together, but most importantly what else is affected by removing a screw from location \A as 9 times out of 10 that screw connects the drum/heating element and internal mounting housing together, and is always fiddely to put back together.
or you could type into a search engine the make and model of your applience and search for a 'service manual' for your make and model, some sites you will have to pay a small fee per downloaded manual, other sites (especial personal websites) will give you the service manual for free,
good luck i hope ive helped you...

Hi: Check your circuit breaker, 220 volts will be two 110 circuits. Two joined or two setaratly. 110 volts to a dryer will cause it to dry very slow. If that is not it check the heating element. It might have been burned out. I hope this helps, Jeff

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.
