Question about Kenmore Dryers
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?

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.

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.

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.

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.
