Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
I have a Kenmore 70 Series Electric Dryer that is about two years old. About a year ago I had a problem with it drying and it ended up that there was a bird nest in the vent. Since then things have been good. Now, I am again having the same problem, but I checked the vent area that is closest to the vent opening on the outside of the house and found nothng. What else could be wrong? It gets hot so I don't think it is the heating element or whatever they have in them these days. Can anyone help?
Check the following ares carefully to combat this issue.
Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.
Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.
3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.

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.
