I have a kenmore 110.87561601 dryer, it blows warm air but not hot, is this the norm for it?


Check power at the outlet. If you're not getting the full 240v then it'll come out warm but not hot. Otherwise I would go with the timer.

My dryer does get warm, but not hot and it takes a long time for the cloths to dry. My dryer is a whirpool WED5300SQ0


This sounds like a voltage problem, make sure you are getting 220 to the dryer, 110 off each leg of the breakerand 220 and 110 to the dryer, i dont think the voltage is right if it is, the elements are bad and needs to be changed thks larry hope this helps let me know

Dryer does not get completely hot. Kenmore 110


most likely this is due to a build up of fluff in your filter, when this happens air can not escape and youl find your washing to be warm but still wet and far from dry.
Sugest you clean your filter, any problems feel free to get back to me

I have a whirlpool dryer it heats and tumbles but its taking forever to dry


hi,

feel how hot the body of the dryer is mid cycle.
it should just be barely warm. if your laundry room has a door leave it open or cut a 1 by 1 foot hole in the door and put a grate on it.
most likely the outlet is clogged. take off the hose, pull it away fro the wall some, and let it run awhile unhooked from the vent, you should have substantial air output when its undone, (like a hair dryer). if its still hot with the hose undone its clogged on the inside and your going to have to take it apart and clean it all out. its not that hard to disassemble and clean, it takes about an hour. study it. dont run it untill its fixed. make sure you unplug it before you take it apart of course..

Dryer gets hot and drum is turning clothes are not drying. cleaned lint tray and removed tubing venting outside and the dryer is making a whining noise. the dryer is only 14 months old


If the drum is turning and the dryer is getting hot, then this is good news, as it means that the dryer is mechanically sound.

First check to see if the internal workings of the dryer are not blocked by running the dryer with the vent tube detached. If there is lots of warm moist air coming out the hole in the back of the dryer where the tube should be, then your dryer is fine.

Next, if you've checked the tube that connects the dryer to the wall or floor and it is clear, then on to step 3.

Probably you have a blocked or severely restricted vent tube from the wall or floor to the outside. Over time, these always become clogged with wet lint that builds up into a crust on the walls of the tubing.

Find the exhaust exit on the outside of the house and run a sewer snake up into it to see if you can open a hole in the blockage. If that works to help the air flow, then you need to replace the tubing from your laundry room to the outside, as it is probably a solid crust of lint that has built up over years.

Again, the good news here is that your expensive new dryer is probably fine.

Hotpoint dryer stop working


if its the same as my dryer CTD40 (or similar) then you have to remove the sides to check into the dryer if anything is stuck, i had a plastic burning smell once and found it was one of the runner wheels had dislodged and was scraping on the drum just re-aline the wheel if it is that, they do come off easily if the dryer has been moved, as i found out. also you will find that the sound of the dryer will change, (scrapeing noise) dont let an engineer lie to you and tell you the bearings have gone, (when i say engineer i mean when you call one out NOT Fixit engineers)
Good luck
