Question about Kenmore Dryers
I have a Kenmore 80 series electrical dryer. It is about 12 years old. Our motor was locked up so we replace it. We have cleaned out our lint lines. But, our dryer still shuts off in the middle of a cycle. We can turn it right back on. There isn't any motor grinding. It just starts right up with out a problem. It will shut off 1-2 times during a cycle.
Take off the vent line from the back of the dryer,if it runs fine your vent line is blocked or the outside vent where the flapper opens might have a cage on it to keep animals out of the line,it keeps the animals out but it's a lint trap.if you have a long run use a leaf blower and blow out the vent line,if that's ok check the t-stats on the heater box,
