It could very possibly be that some of the lint has migrated thru the cracks of the lint "tunnels" and settled down around the heating element. Danger Will Robinson! Learn how to remove the front cover/door or back side and inspect for loose lint. It is normally lots more accumulated than you could imagine.

Beco cond dryer DRSC 68 W When drying cycle ls on l hear an electric trip sound followed by a wire burning smell


If you EVER smell that again, unplug, unload(dry or not, lives may be at risk), preform a thorough check and identify the smell. Then buy a replacement part and check ALL the wiring. Really I cannot stress just how dangerous this is. In my opinion a new dryer would be fine.

Dryer makes loud squeaking sound when spining


how old? Dryers squeak for one of 3 reasons..bad belt, bad motor or drum rubbing against dryer framework.
run it empty...intermittent squeaks usually are the drum...something's bent
continuous- is there any burning smell? If so, most likely the motor, if not, possibly the belt.
Open the top (most have screws or can just be pried open) and watch it run...identify the source of the sound if possible

try spraying the belt and motor with a little wd-40 and let it dry for a day, then try again.
If that doesn't help, repairman or new/used dryer...probably better off to find a decent one off of craigslist b4 paying to repair an already faulty machine

Kenmore Dryer won't heat.


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
