If the dryer is overheating, it either indicates a faulty high limit or cycling thermostat or a venting problem. Clean out any lint from the internal and external ductwork and make sure the ductwork is not kinked or collapsed. The thermostat is usually a small,round, black device mounted to an oblong plate. It is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Kenmore model 90 dryer electric will dry the clothes takes a long time. Leaves the floor surrounding the dryer damp actually wet just not puddled


Are the clothes wet AND hot? If so - check the exhaust / vent hose for kinks or obstructions. That includes the cap / flap on the outside of the house.

If the clothes are wet AND cold, then the electric heating element isn't heating likely due to a broken or poor electrical connection, burned out heating element, defective thermostat, etc..

FGR231ASY GAS DRYER BURNS FLEESE MATERIAL CLOTHING WHY


Hello my name is George,
I was wondering if the dryer was just burning fleece or all of your clothes. Fleece is a very delicate material, and should be dried on low temp or delicate depending on your drier. Driers are thermally protected inside with various parts. If the drier is getting to hot one of these would have caused the drier to stop heating. If the drier is burning all the clothes and not just the fleece I would recommend having a technician come out and check it as this could be a hazard for you and your family.

Kenmore dryer gets really hot on top of the dryer, not while clothes are drying but when finished, kinda scary?


Remember heat rises. However if it burns your hand or you can smell something you need to unplug the power to it asap. Most of them come with a one year in home service repair. It takes a while the heating elements to get hot in the dryer so that's probably why it seems its getting hot on top after the clothes have been in for a while.

Holes in clothes


I'd bet the holes are the same size as the holes in the dryer tumbler. the only thing I can think of is that your dryer isn't tumbling and the heat that is pushed through the holes is burning your clothes.

Dryer does not get hot enough to dry clothes Roper REX4634KQ1 Electric Dryer


Most common cause of this is a clogged venting going to the outside to test this remove the vent from the back of the dryer and run a load if it drys ok them you know you have a venting issue and will need to be cleaned out if not plz repost and we can look deeper into it
