It sounds like either of several things. Check the air discharge from the dryer where it exits your house, and be sure thet it is blowing strong. If it is not, you may have a partially plugged vent circuit. Unplug the dryer. Make sure that your vent hose and outlet ducting are clear of debris. Take the duct outside and clear it out. Check the inside rear of the dryer, where the duct connects, for debris, lint, etc..
If you have a strong air flow, you may have durned out heating elements. Again, with the dryer unplugged, gain access to the element leads and test for continuity, if you have a test meter and know how to use it. Replace any broken elements. Parts are readily available from most any appliance parts supply house.

Kenmore dryer 90 series


Since no model number was given, check to see if you have a setting commonly noted as "wrinkle guard", "wrinkle shield", "press care" or something to that affect. Those settings will run the dryer for as much as 90 min after a completed drying cycle to prevent wrinkles in clothing, allowing you time to remove the cloths after a dry cycle if you are busy.

Takes long to dry clothes


on your side, it is better you don't touch anything internal in the dryer as you can hurt yourself and spoil the device even more. have a professional take a look at it before you use it any further.

Does not dry clothes takes 180 min how long can


idealy most manufactures reccommend 8 ft
with each elbow equal 3' there are variations of that
but its a good rule of thumb.
a two hour dry usually means some loss of circulation with in the system
good call

Kenmore dryer 90 series, heats a little, but doesn't get hot and takes 3 to 4 1/2 hrs to dry a med. size load.


Check vent path from lint filter all the way to the exhaust vent to make sure it is clear. If the dryer has a wet/dry sensor it could be malfunctioning. Try a manual cycle to see if the problem occurs then.

Dryer not heating as it should. Gets warm, but takes several cycles to dry clothes


Could be 2 things... either your heat source is out of repair or your vent is blocked. Since you say it only gets warm I'll assume the problem is with the gas coils inside the unit. These parts are replaceable
