Probably a stuck dryer element relay! unplug it and don't use it again until you get it fixed! or replace it!
not worth your life to keep using it! electric dryers are cheaper to replace than gas dryers! don't know how old it is, but if still under warranty, have kenmore fix or replace it! don't use it again!!
good luck! stay safe!!

Kenmore Heavy Duty dryer model # 86873100


The drum belt is lopped through a idler wheel that has a power cut off switch that cuts the power when the belt breaks.
So I don't know why the dryer would heat up if the belt is broken?

Is the top of the dryer very hot. Check the dryer vent tube is not clogged.

I have a Kenmore Electric Series 80 Dryer that the drum inside won't turn but it heats up and smells hot like something is burning. I can however turn it manually.


Remove the top and the front panel to remove the drum after you purchase a belt and teh idler pulley that Sears selles for your dryer. The pulley's bearing has froze up causing the belt to burn up and falling off

Have Kenmore electric dryer that works normal but does not get hot.


check the electric coil spring. It may be burned open. If so then twist the two half together. Sometimes coins or other objects land on the coil and burn it open

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.

Kenmore 800 dryer burning smell and noise.


Access is from the front. Lint screen on top? 2 screws under screen, putty knife to release front clips between top and cabinet. Top folds back and 2 5/16 screws in top corners. Lean front towards you then lift up off lower hangers. Good luck.....

Frigidaire dryer overheating and shutting off mid cycle


Usually dryers have the exact opposite problem where the heat does not come on. Because most dryers have thermocouples (rated at 150 & 185 degrees) to prevent the dryer from getting too hot. You may have the blower fan come off of the motor. Check and see if you have air moving out of the vent. Also unplug the dryer and take the back off and inspect the area where it is getting hot. It may be some wires touching the case. Sometimes you can see the problem or smell something getting too hot. Either way be carefull. A dryer that overheats is a fire hazard!

Kenmore Dryer Gets hot on top 970C8106200


Sounds like the heater is cracked. You can get it worked on but the price is not worth it. Also due to the fact that you are seeing burn marks on the back of the machine it is advisable that you get a new or new/used machine to be safe. Remember family and safety come first

Dryer to hot and smoking


Get a dryer vent cleaner and stick it in as far as it will go. You have a plug somehwere in the vent and it needs to be cleared, try doing this from the top down to avoid making the clog worse
