Re: no air blowing in dryer
These dryers are not much different mechanically then Kenmore 4-wheel units. One common problem I've seen with this design is lint buildup in the lint filter housing. Along with cleaning the entire machine and vent system regularly you can use a vacuum with crevice tool to get most of it. To clean it throroughly remove the front panel and two screws holding the filter housing near the top.
Remove the wire from the sensor on the upper right and lift the housing up and off the clip below. Another possibility is a problem with the blower. reach in from the vent and make sure its intact

Hello, does the dryer drum turn? If the dryer drum is moving. Is the dryer blowing hot air, cold air, no air at all? Now, if it's doing everything mention above escept blowing hot air then you'll need a new heating element. If not blow air, then the drum belt is broken, belt off, or the drum motor has gone south. It was put for a quitt. Which mean in New Mexico, they fired me, I don't work, no job, finished, I'am out of here, don't bury me with my wires exposed. I hope I was some help to you. have a nice day and be safe, GB. stewbison
Motor won't work Lint screen hi-limit (thermal cutout) tripped. Clean lint screen and clean lint and other debris from front shield, then replace hi-limit. Also check exhaust duct length & # of elbows. Wire harness failed. Run resistance or continuity checks to track down broken wire or connector. Replace failed wire harness. Display shows "E:01" during drying. Lint filter, air duct or air damper is blocked. Air leaking past felt drum seal. Air duct is too long, too small or has too many bends. Inadequate ventilation around dryer (i.e. in a closet). Clean out filter, air duct and air damper. Replace felt drum seal. If seal doesn't fit snugly onto drum, wet felt and dry it by running a timed dry cycle for 20 minutes (felt will shrink and fit drum snugly). Shorten, enlarge, reroute and reduce # of bends in air duct. Move dryer to an area
Check ease of drum moving that it moved freely. Remove panels Is motor noisy? Check belt. Is movement of drum noisy? Make sure exhaust is not clogged. Can the air move freely to the outside. Make sure there are no kinks in exhaust line. Determine cause of noise then you have a few choices. Repair, lubricate replace parts or replace dryer. Sometime you just need to use it until it doesn't work anymore and then buy a new one depending on the cost of repairs vs. replacement.
You cannot convert this model. This unit blows hot air into drum and the water is turned to steam and exhausted out through the pump to the drain. Unlike regular dryers that blow hot air into drum, creating link and just heat that blow out vent.
you will need to remove the front cover,by removing 2 kick panel screws at the base of the front of the machine,remove front cover and make sure blower wheel is turning,if so,then remove any heating ductwork and vacuum out all lint,this sounds like a restriction inside the machine for air flow
In the air path between the heater and the dryer drum, and also in the exhaust air path, there are temperature detectors. First thing is to make sure there is good airflow blowing from the dryer exhaust -- not enough airflow will let too much heat build up. Not enough airflow means too much lint somewhere in the exhaust path, or the fan loose on its shaft. If the airflow is good, the one of those temperature detectors is probably dirty or bad.
???? this doesnt make much sense, can see how you would be measuring air flow within the cabinet??? air blowing out unit strong means your gettin good air flow fom within, that is a direct relation as to the amount of (hot) air being pulled across the clothing
because the motor that turns the drum is also the motor that turns the fan blade to blow the air.
open the rear portion of the dryer and you can find the fan blade, made of plastic, being covered by the vertical duct that came from the drum. then the outlet of the fan assembly goes out to the exhaust of the dryer.
another could be problem would be a clogged exhaust duct. check the exhaust duct or the hoce that is attached to it. see to it that it is clean and no blockade.
