If this is a new element, this is normal until it has been used a few cycles. Use it and watch it carefully for a while. If it continues have a competent person to take the rear panel off and check for burnt wires or lint inside the unit.

SOURCE: can't find kenmore 80 series dryer drum belt

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:
http://www.partselect.com/
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/index.aspx
Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Also for a manual I will include this website:

Good luck,
I hope this helps

The dryer isn't getting hot


Here's a good troubleshooting article on them:

Keep in mind, it is an older dryer, but that series is known for being really good. If the article doesn't check out, I would suggest calling in a technician as it's possible something got damaged in the move/

Kenmore 80 series electric dryer doesn't get hot


The eletrical heating element is most likely faulty (broken and open-circuit) and will need to be replaced: this is non-trivial exercise involving main and dangerous high voltage better left to a professional repairman.

Kenmore dryer does not heat


I have a kenmore series 80. Had the same problem...the fix was replacing the gas coils. The dryer would get hot for about 10-15min then nothing. The gas would stop firing but you could see the igniter glow over and over again. Hope this helps.
