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.

Hello, I have Kenmosre 90 series dryer. Did a load ealier today, and it was fine. Went back to put another load in and realised NO heat was on, absolutley no heat in the dryer, the air inside is room...


you may need a heating element. You can go to your locale appliance store and buy the element & install it yourself . Just make sure you take All your dryer info, (etc; the dryer model, make, yr & the serial # ) this info is easy to find, its located inside the dryer door. Just call around your locale area and ask them how much it is for the heating element, for your dryer. It should be rather cheap compared to the cost of Kenmore appliance company coming out to fix it for you. The heating element is rather easy to install. I have installed a few in my own dryers and in my hot water heater.
Thank you.
Sincerely,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

We have a Kenmore 110 6092299 90 Series dryer. The motor still runs - but no hot air, at all. I've tried timed and heat dry. Nothing. It just tumbles and it takes 4-5 rounds to dry. At first we were told...


Sounds like the heating element or the thermo-cut off. A vent being clogged for some time, can cause too much heat to build up and make the element or cut off fail. These are the 2 most common things.

Dryer gets hot and tumbles, but load takes 2 hrs to dry complete.


That means that there is a problem either with the vent , or the heating element, or the thermostat, rarely this can also be caused by a defective control.
Ususally this is a heating/thermostat, or a ventilation problem.

Kenmore 80's series dryer


Dryers could not be simpler devices. I assume that since all you mention is that the dryer is not heating, everything else on the dryer is working as normal. ie. You could put in wet clothes, set the timer start the dryer and the drum starts turning and air comes out of the exhaust. It just happens not to be hot. I am also assuming that you know how to use the drier and that it is not set on tumble (no heat).

If that is the case, the heating element is almost certainly burned out. Basically this is the part of the dryer that glows red (just like an electric stove) when electricity passes through it. Unplug the dryer and see how it can be taken apart. Many open from the top or the back. They are all slightly different. The heating element will be located near the blower fan typically at the bottom of the dryer. Figure out how to get at this, pull the old element out and then replace it with your new one. There will be two electrical connections. You may even see where the element just slides into position by the blower and can be removed with a couple of screws.

You should only need a screw driver to do all of this.

Plug the dryer in and enjoy the warmth.

Kenmore 90 series gas dryer, NO HEAT!!!


Hi, if you get no glow on the ignitor and you have voltage its the little white two terminal fuse on the exhaust side that has no continuity on the series 80 it has 2 blue wires, these complete the circuit for both gas valves and the ignitor. If you have an ohm meter it you will find it rite away. Hope this helps.
