    Does the dryer have a lint filter in the door? Or, is it located on the top of the dryer? I need to know this in order to give you the proper advice on how to check the interior. You could have a clog in the air blower tubing. Post back to this thread please.

    Could you please post back with your model number (located somewhere along the door opening) so I can give you a better answer? Are you simply replacing the lint filter? Or, are you replacing the housing that the lint filter goes into? Please provide me with some specifics.

Why isn't My Kenmore Heavy Duty 70 Series Soft Heat Extra Capacity Electric Dryer drying clothes on any one cycle?

One possibility: Air flow! Make sure that the lint trap is cleaned before each cycle. You likely need to thoroughly clean out the vent piping out the back of the machine- a buildup of lint in here can also restrict airflow.

I have a Kenmore 80 series heavy duty dryer that is not giving out much heat.What should I be looking for to solve the problem?

Is it gas or electrric? Either one i would check the dryer vent hoses. Check the lint trap as well. The lint trp is the exit for the hot air to circulate. Sometimes if clogged with lint these dryers could go either way they could over heat and cause a fire or cause the element or thermostat to fail. The electric dryers have a thermostat and a heating element. Those tend to go bad. Back panel should be taken off and unplug unit check.

My Kenmore Heavy Duty 60 Series Soft Heat Large Capacity dryer runs but not drying the clothes. Also runs constantly after the time has run out. Can you give me some assistance?

Dryers need airflow to work properly.

Unplug the unit and pull away from wall. Use flashlight, gloves, etc. as neccessary to inspect ducting for dryer lint. Remove any and all lint. Use a shop vac to clean vents and area. You might also need to use the shop vac to vaccuum out or blow out ducting.

Another typical solution is to replace the two thermostat controllers.

Parts available from Sears parts online for around $20 each.

Unplug Dryer and remove back panel from unit (8-10 screws.) A Simple pair of pliers will do the trick. Use shop vac to remove any and all dryer lint from inside unit. Thermostats look to be central right and easily accessible.

I am not a professional by any means, but I was a mechanical engineer on a nuclear submarine's reactor plant and I did work for 6 months installing and light repair on Maytag appliances.

I have seen several websites with info that supports the problem being the thermostats. My guess is that I would treat this like replacing headlights for your car. Never replace just one, because the older one will not be as bright and will most likely fail in the near future. For the low cost and high effort to go back and replace a second might as well replace both at the same time.

80 Series Gas Dryer - No Heat. All other parts

check outside drye vent where it goes through the wall they clog up with lint sometimes and force the escaping warm air to back up which causes sensor to give wrong reading if this is clogged just clear it till you feel the air coming through also check vent at bottom of dryer disconnect flex pipe and check for clogs there as well ..and always clear lint trap after every load

Kenmore dryer shuts off after five minutes

The vent box inside the dryer still has lint in it. You need to reach way inside to get at it. Turn power off.
