Kenmore dryer takes a lonf time to dry

The dryer appears to be working fine, however it seems to take a long time to dry. The dryer does get pretty hot when it's on so it seems that the element is working.

Kenmore elite dryer 4e just stopped working with no problems no power what so ever

Ok, try it on timed-dry.

Then pull the dryer out from the wall and take the vent hose OFF it in the back, and then try it on auto-dry with no clothes in it and see if it runs through fine.

Dryer stops too soon

if the dryer seems to be running fine check the vent line and the duct that the lint filter slides into,most likely if it takes to long to dry clothes lint is blocking the air movement somewhere,when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer and vent line,you should clean the dryer once a year so you don't have a fire and your clothes will dry on time,if the vent line is long remove it from the back of the dryer and blow it out with a leaf blower,remove the lint filter duct and clean it and vac out the cabinet where the motor is.

I have a dryer # 67832791 and doesn't seem like it heats up and takes longer to dry the clothes. Seems to run fine and operate fine just not drying the clothes.

restriction in the venting, disconnect vent tube, leave disconnected dry clothes and if they dry then clean out vent tube(vacuum, leaf blower, etc). Hope this helped Tim

2 problems with my Kenmore Elite dryer

Hello, I would be curious to know if the dryer performs the same way on "timed" dry and "auto-dry", have you tried ? Here's a tip on how you can absolutely know if you have venting issues ( and I don't necessarily mean a "clogged" vent, there are other factors too ) Disconnect the vent at the rear of the dryer and run a cycle as you normally would and observe what happens. Also if it has the flex venting on it ( whether plastic or foil type ) get rid of it, personally I will not even service a customers dryer until they agree to change it when present. I'll watch for you reply in this post if I can assist you further. Good luck. macmarkus :)

Overheating/burnt rubber smell

classical sign of a bad motor. the motor has a thermal switch on it telling the unit to shut off when it gets hot. after it cools down, the switch will tell the motor to turn back on again. good luck, i'm pretty sure that's your problem. contact me for further help if needed. thanks :)
