This is more than likely a ventilation problem. Remove the dryer vent tube from the back of the unit and place a leaf blower or something else with a high airflow rate in the end. Blow the entire hose out. Also, check the vent on the outside to be sure there is no restriction as well. 99% of the time, if a dryer will heat even a little, its a airflow problem. Good luck and let me know if you need further help.

My Kenmore 6.7 cu ft he2 Super capacity electric dryer is taking twice as long to dry. no error codes


It sounds like a connection problem with one of the heating elements, or perhaps only a clogged input or output hose from the dryer. Either of these could cause the problem...also, a burned out electric element.

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.

Dryer takes long time to dry clothes


Remove the rear connecting vent and try a load at 45 minutes time dry. If it dries correct the vent blockage problem.
If not, let me know for step 2.
