Question about Dryers
I have the same model number, kenmore 110.64212200. I cleaned the vent all the way to the outside. When I run the dryer, the heating element gets red hot, but the clothes need 2 cycles to dry. When I open the door mid cycle, I can see the glow of the element, but it does not feel warm inside the drum.
Hi, While the dryer is running, remove the lint screen and put your hand in the opening to see if there is air moving. It is safe to do. You should feel a good amount of air sucking past your hand. It is possible that lint has built up inside the lint screen housing. You can also remove the vent from the rear of the dryer and see if it makes a difference in the air flow past your hand.
You mighr have to remove the rear panel and then remove the 4 screws holding the lint screen housing to the bulk head. You will also need to remove the 2 screws under the lint screen door.
Pull the housing away from the bulk head and make sure it is cleaned out and make sure there is nothing in the motor blower wheel as well. I have also sen something get hung up inside the dryer blocking the hole on the right side rear where the air goes into the lint screen.
I hope this helps you. There is air flow blockage somewhere.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.
