Question about Kenmore Dryers
Check the vents and filters first of all. If they are blocked at any point the air flow will be restricted and prevent drying.
The next thing would be to see if the heating element is working, whether it is gas or electric.
The heating elements could be bad and need replacing. In addition, if the dryer is not properly vented, clothes will take much longer to dry.
You should first REPLACE your exhaust hose if it has been on your dryer for more than a year. Not clean it out but REPLACE it. This not only prevents fires but also keeps your dryer at optimal performance.
Also, every 3-4 years, unplug the dryer and remove the back of it (it's just a metal panel, don't be afraid) and clean all the lint out of there. If that doesn't work, your moisture sensor may be slowly dying. If that is the case, you just have to run some loads twice. Using a pair of dryer balls helps dry the clothes faster so I recommend those too. Eventually, you may wish to consider replacing the dryer

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.
