Hi Sam,
Make sure that you have checked the circuit breaker, to find out wither or not the breaker was tripped or not, before you take it apart. but there is a good chance that you are right on the money......

Elec. clothes dryer turns but won't dry


If dryier is 220 V, phase is burnt out, so it's working on 110V, not enough to heat the air. Check your breaker and electric system or dryier.

The kenmore elec dryer is about 1.5 yrs old and isn't drying the cloths very well. took the cover off the back and checked to see if the coil heats up and looks like it does ( It gets red). it's...


Hi cdsca66...

Check and clean if necessary your vent hose.
If you vent hose "seems" to be clean then,try running the dryer with the vent hose off and see if the dryer is not running hot anymore.
Make sure your lint screen is in place and has no tears or holes in it and is still firmly attached to the frame.
If you are running too hot you are not moving enough air thru the system.
It could be that the fan blade is plugged up.
The problem could be a large lint ball build up in the center of the fan or a sock,thin pants,a pen,etc. that has gotten into the fan by falling down the hole where the lint screen is normally inserted.
You have to find the air restriction to solve the problem.
It also can be a loose or worn out blower wheel/fan.
Please take time to rate me.

The dryer isn't drying properly. It gets hot its not drying. Its a Kenmore Elite. Also the coil has been cleaned and its not catching lint.


Make sure the drum is turning and the blower is functioning. Vacuum out all air passages including the hose going to the outside vent. Remove the lint trap, and wash it in hot water and detergent to clean away fabric softener deposits from the screen. If the motor is not running, find out why.

Runs and heats but will not dry


Fist need to know if it is gas or electric dryer, it makes a difference.

If an electric dryer, It is possible that one of the heating elements has failed (burned out), which would still allow the other one to get hot, but not enough to completely dry the clothes during the normal timed or automatic drying cycles.

You can check this with an ohm/amp meter if you are comfortable with working around 220V-AC voltage, etc. You'll need to remove either the rear cover, (if your unit has rear access) or the top of the dryer and then the drum, to gain access to the electric drying elements. This depends on which model you have and how old a dryer it is, etc.

Once you've done that, you can sometimes see a broken drying element, if not, you can check for continuity with the ohm meter (make sure the power cord is unplugged!).

If you are unable to determine with this method, you can restore power and briefly put the dryer into a timed dry cycle (drum and drive belt removed, while you visually check for heating elements turning red/orange as they heat up. Only do that long enough to confirm which element is good, be very careful, as they get extremenly hot. Once you know which one is bad you can order your replacement by model number , etc. Hope that helps.

Kenmore 970 C81062 10 Electric Dyer WILL NOT


It sounds like the drum may be stuck. Turn the dryer on with the door open, just keep the button pushed. Then try to turn the drum by hand, and see if it will start to turn.

Clothes not drying


A couple of possibilities to check. First, is the lint trap empty? If so, then the symptoms point to hot air bypassing the drum. Look for broken or misaligned plastic ducting inside the dryer itself. Check the exhaust air for moisture, as that is a better indicator than temperature. Don't forget that towels hold an enormous amount of water, & can be extremely long in drying, especially if not spun enough.
