Question about Kenmore 800 7983 Dryer
Take the vent line off the back of dryer and see how it runs,also clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,if the duct or the vent line is filled with lint and by the way is a fire hazard and should be done every year,the dryer will not run correctly your clothes will take longer to dry and parts will fail.if the dryer is really backed up with lint you might have to take out the thermostat on the blower wheel housing and clean the back of it,the lint gets wet and it sticks to the back of the thermostat causing the dryer not to run correctly

How are ya?
The heating element is supposed to cycle on and off to maintain a set temperature. If it takes too long to come back on again, then the thermistat is malfunctioning.
Take a temperature probe and stick it in the drum and let it run for a few minutes and note the temperature. Should be consistantly near 90 - 130 degrees. Good luck :)
