Why isn't My Kenmore Heavy Duty 70 Series Soft Heat Extra Capacity Electric Dryer drying clothes on any one cycle?

One possibility: Air flow! Make sure that the lint trap is cleaned before each cycle. You likely need to thoroughly clean out the vent piping out the back of the machine- a buildup of lint in here can also restrict airflow.

I have a Kenmore 80 series heavy duty dryer that is not giving out much heat.What should I be looking for to solve the problem?

Is it gas or electrric? Either one i would check the dryer vent hoses. Check the lint trap as well. The lint trp is the exit for the hot air to circulate. Sometimes if clogged with lint these dryers could go either way they could over heat and cause a fire or cause the element or thermostat to fail. The electric dryers have a thermostat and a heating element. Those tend to go bad. Back panel should be taken off and unplug unit check.

Maytag Dependable Care Plus/Heavy Duty Dryer Model # LDG9304AAM Dryer is turning, there is heat but clothes are not drying

HI- Usually when the clothes take a long time to dry it is an issue with the vent. Look in the back of the dryer and make sure the vent is not crushed, crimped or blocked. As well, go outside when the unit is running and feel how much air is coming out of the exit vent. It should be blowing pretty good. If not replace and clean the vent, if the vent goes through the wall and makes a bunch of turn over a long distance you will need to have a vent cleaning service out to brush and vacuum the vent. You can test this by detaching the vent where it goes into the wall and putting pantyhose over the end and see if it dries better. You could also have a thermostat issue but I look at the venting first. Hope this helps.

check outside drye vent where it goes through the wall they clog up with lint sometimes and force the escaping warm air to back up which causes sensor to give wrong reading if this is clogged just clear it till you feel the air coming through also check vent at bottom of dryer disconnect flex pipe and check for clogs there as well ..and always clear lint trap after every load

Kenmore dryer shuts off after five minutes

The vent box inside the dryer still has lint in it. You need to reach way inside to get at it. Turn power off.
