Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer
My wife just told me the dryer is taking 2 cycles to dry clothes when it used to only take 1. Wondering if maybe a setting may of gotten bumped or something? I checked the vent tube going outside, and don't see any lint build-up, and there appears to be plenty of warm air venting out. Any thoughts?
EVEN THOUGH THERE IS WARM AIR COMING OUT THE EXHAUST, IT STILL MAY HAVE A RESTRICTION IN THE DUCT WORK. DISCONNECT THE EXHAUST FROM THE BACK OF THE DRYER FOR ONE LOAD OF LAUNDRY. IF IT DRYS THE CLOTHES O.K., YOU HAVE A RESRICTION SOMEWHERE IN THE EXHAUST.
NOTE: DO NOT USE VINYL OR PLASTIC DUCTING. VINYL IS NOT U.L. APPROVED. PLASTIC PVC WILL ALLOW CONDENSATION TO PUDDLE INSIDE THE PIPE CAUSING A

We cleaned our unit out and then my son pushed it back into the narrow area and the unit worked better but still not as it should, so we ran it that way and then pulled it out again and found the after pulling the unit back out from when my son put it in small area the Exhuast pipe pipe got crinkled very bad and was stopping the airflow. We cleaned it out throughly, I check Temp- on the back wall exhaust heat in the drum and the temp was 381 Degrees then going out the Lint boot it was 184 degrees and down on the blower the temp was 184 degrees when the burner was running and 138 degrees. when burner was off. temp at outside wall 176-150 degrees. I cleaned the Thermister and the temp. sensor in the exhaust pipe. with rubbering alchol, also the lint sensor. Hope these things work.
