Question about Kenmore Dryers

Open Question

Dryer buzzing sound, clothes are not dry completely.

Last week, clothes after drying were still wet. I operated the dryer more to dry the clothes for several times. But, the clothes weren't dry completely. And my husband cleaned the duct and replaced the aluminium duct. However, the clothes are not dry after one normal cycle and another 30 minutes dry. Also, when the dryer is operating, i can notice the a little high tone buzzing sound. Is there any problems in the dryer?

SOURCE: Gas dryer not completely drying clothes

Hello br4noles,
based on your description, you may have one of several problems but the prime suspect would be a restrictive exhaust system. Check and make sure you don't have a blockage in your vent system all the way from the dryer to the exit point. When cycling, you should have a fairly robust air flow at the exit outside. If you don't, then you may have a blockage in your vent, something restricting the blower from operating at 100% or lastly a poor flame from your gas system. Air movement is the key thou so I would focus on that since you didn't state that the dryer wasn't heating up.
Regards,
Rick

SOURCE: Roaring Sound During Operation of Dryer

Does the roaring sound occur after the machine warms up? If so, it could be a bad drum bearing. the heat from the dryer causes it to expand in its housing and, since it may been defective, could start "roaring". If so, The dryer drum shaft/bearing assembly will need to be replaced

If however, the roaring is immediate upon start up then u may have a bearing in your dryer motor. The entire motor may have to be replaced.

Check your lint trap and the vent. make sure that there are no obstructions in either of them. Then take a look at your timer to since it is not stopping when you tell it too.

SOURCE: My roper REX3514 Dryer will only dry on the time cycle.

If you use a lot of dryer sheets, it will build up an oily residue on the sensor strips causing a "false" reading. Light sandpaper and alchohol over the strips should clean them well. Another possibility, is if you have a mixed load, ie..towels, socks, jeans , if a sock or something light keeps hitting the strips, the dryer thinks the whole load is dry (it doesn't know there are different thing in there) Try keeping loads similar when using auto dry.

SOURCE: dryer doesnt dry clothes

I suspect you have a blocked air vent. A blocked vent will definitely extend your drying time. You may even find yourself having to run a load twice to get it fully dried. One way to confirm this is to disconnect the vent hose from the back of your dryer and dry one load with the machine venting directly into your laundry room. If that load dries quickly then you know the problem is a blocked vent. Most vents get blocked by lint near their exit to the outside. There's usually a screen at this location to prevent small animals from crawling into your house. Often this screen gets clogged with lint. Most vents are designed to allow removal and cleaning of this screen from the outside.

Clothes are still wet after last spin cylce


Most washing machines do not dry the clothes completely. Make sure that your clothes are evenly spaced & the weight is balanced to get the best spin speed. When the cycle is complete, you will need to put the clothes into a dryer or hang them up to get them completely dry.

Your Sensor that senses the clothes are wet or dry is shorted out. The dryer works likes this so the dryer heaters dont stay on while the clothes are dry. When the sensor senses the clothes are damp or wet, the heater stays on, when they start drying the sensor senses it and starts to turn down the heaters

This problem may be the result of a dirty lent filter which if clogged will short cycle the dryer and the clothes will still be damp when done. Also a dirty exhaust pipe (usally 4") will prevent the clothes from drying correctly. Make sure that the air is leaving the machine. To do this you have to go outside when the machine is running.

sounds like an air flow problem meaning the dryer is not exhausting the hot air. Best way to check is to disconnect exhaust tubing from dryer and run a cycle. If the clothes dry normally the vent to the outside is plugged. Hope this helps

Check your exit vent outside of your house... what you can do is remove vent hose on back of your dryer... run dryer and feel the air coming out of the vent right behind your dryer.. now reinstall your vent line and check outside,,, see if you feel the same or about the same air flow... if your air flow is block, then your heat will not come on regularly to dry clothes... good luck

Our LG dryer doesn't get completely hot until the clothes are mostly dry.


heated air enters the dryer at 140 degrees farenheit,
a portion of the heat energy raises the temperature of the water in the clothes.
When the clothes are cold and wet, the difference is large transfer is rapid
a lot of heat transfers to clothes and the exhaust air is damper and colder
As the clothes get warmer and dryer, proprtionally less heat is extracted from the incoming air, and the exhaust air is warmer and dryer.
When the clothes are dry, and at 140 degrees, the same temperature as the incoming air. no heat is removed from the incoming air
the dryer should then stop heating, draw unheated air through the drum and clothes to cool, and reduce wrinkling
then switch off

the dryer appears to be operating correctly

How do you DRY with the Haier washer/dryer


Have you tried lengthening the dryer cycle or running it at a higher temp? The usual culprit for wet clothes is not running a dryer long enough or hot enough. (I remember some stand-alone dryers (coin-operated with a fixed drying time per coin) that needed two cycles to dry stuff.

Dryer needs multiple cycles to dry


I would check on the outside of the building. anti pest screens usualy plug up with lint. from the discription you have made it is definatly having troubles venting some where. Check every thing because venting is usualy not covered under warranty.
