Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have the exact same problem; dryer gets hot but won't dry

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.

The heater appears to be heating when drying but it takes 2 to 3 times to get a load dry? Thank you for the help. Scott Model 68712894


if your dryer feels hot inside and the drum tumbles then you have a blocked vent. check that the venting blows to the outside. do this test. unhook the vent behind the dryer, dry a load of clothing and if it dry on the first time then you know the house vent is clogged. cleaned or if you live in an appartment have maintenance clean.

Cleaned vents, dryer gets very hot, shuts off w/o drying clothes


Sounds like a faulty operating thermostat. Only way is to test on a electric griddle that you can set the temperature to 150 deg and measure with a ohm meter.

Dryer does not dry


Problem is likely:

- heating element, or
- one of several thermal limit switches in the electrical circuitry

If you want to further pursue, let me know.

Won't dry clothes


Try running the dryer with the vent pipe unplugged. There should be a lot of hot air coming out, if not the insides need to be cleaned. If it really moves air, and dries a load ok unhooked, your vent is clogged. Clean it if you can. If you can't, look into a lint trap that will work for your situation, some have a water trap, some are good filters, etc. If the air is not hot, some of the electric element may be bad. If it's gas, it could need a tune up and cleaning inside.

sounde like you have a clogged vent line be shure the vent hose is not cinked in any waty that would restrict the air flow. Next turn the dryer on and make sure you and a good flow of air out side the house if the air is not blowing out the vent out side you will need to clean this out or have it cleaned.
