I would consider checking the high limit thermostat. This small round device is mounted on a metal plate and is usually attached to the internal ductwork. It can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. It should have none. I will attach a photo of a typical thermal cutoff and high limit thermostat for reference. Sure hope this helped and sorry for your trouble. Best wishes.

I have a kenmore dryer 80 series it only makes a lite sound when I push the start button. I won't come on. The power is good.


The Kenmore 80 Series of dryers are consumer grade dryers for home use. As with most home appliances, the Kenmore 80 series dryers will occasionally not work as intended. If a problem occurs with your dryer, however, you do not necessarily need it serviced by a technician. You can attempt to troubleshoot and fix any problems with your dryer before contacting a technician.

  1. Kenmore 80 Series dryers may not run for several reasons. First, make sure that the power cord is plugged into a working power outlet. You may need to plug a different device into the outlet to check that it is receiving power. If the second device does not run on the power outlet, you may have blown a fuse or tripped a circuit breaker. Check your fuse box or circuit breaker box and make the change as needed.
    Next, make sure that the dryer door is fully shut. The dryer will not run with the door ajar.
    Finally, check that the "Start" button was fully pressed and that a cycle was chosen on the machine. If you do not choose a cycle for the dryer, it will not run.
  2. If your Kenmore 80 Series dryer does not heat up during use, check that a heat cycle has been chosen for the load. There are several different dryer cycles you can choose, some of which do not use heat. Make sure that you have chosen a heated cycle.
    As above, check that you have not blown a fuse or tripped a circuit breaker. The dryer may use more than one fuse or breaker: one is used to power the drum, and the other for the heating element. Make sure that both fuses or breakers are in working order.
  3. There may be times when Kenmore Series 80 dryers do not fully dry your clothes. When this occurs, check the lint screen and clear out any lint. The air may not flow as well if the lint screen is clogged.
    Next, check to see if the exhaust vent is clogged. Lint and other particles may clog the exhaust vent over time, restricting air flow and making it more difficult to dry your clothes. To check the vent, run the dryer and hold your hand under the vent. If you do not feel any air flow, clean or replace the vent.
    If you used cold water to rinse the clothes it may take longer than normal to dry. The same is true if the load of laundry is very wet or is filled with items that are very absorbent.
    Finally, check the load size. The more clothes in the load the longer it will take to dry. If you want to reduce drying time, separate the clothes into piles of light and heavy items and dry them separately.
  4. please comment on these solution by saying how helpful.

My dryer is hot but now i have to dry twice on sixty minutes to get clothes dry instead of once. what could be the problem. i have a kenmore series 80.


Sorry to read about your problem. Their is a 80% chance you have a defective heat coil or coils. or the heat selector switch is defective. in addition you may have a clogged dryer vent.

I suggest you place a call to a service company.

I just bought a gas dryer - takes forever to dry clothes


check the high limit switch/thermostat on the burner housing and if they are weak they will cycle the heat off too soon and it wont build the heat you have it set for,just bypass it with a jumper wire to test it,if this is the problem,dont leave it bypassed,replace it as it is a safety feature to prevent a fire

Kenmore 80 series wont start


Common failure of these dryers is the door switch. The switch is located at the top right where the door comes in contact with the tab,

A simple test is to verify that the light is on and goes out when the switch tab is depressed.

If not replace the switch.

Hope this helps?

make sure that your vent is not plug up can you go outside your house and feel good air coming out the vent when the dryer is turn on if so the only other things it could be is the coils that sit on the ignotor assmebly or the high limit termistat is not working properly the coils are little black circle coils that sit in the ignitor assmly should have a metal braket across the top of them holding them in you can check resistance on these coils if you have an meter

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.
