Question about Kenmore 400 6942 Dryer
Have you ever cleaned it out? If not, that is the most common problem with dryers. It can't breathe and takes multiple cycles to dry the clothes. Unplug the dryer and pull it out. Disconnect the vent from the back of the dryer. Clean out lint from dryer and vent. Take the vent outside if you have to and blow it out with air compressor, if you can. Now check the other end of the vent outside at the vent cap. Clean it out and make sure the vent cap flap is not stuck closed. After reassembling vent, turn on dryer and check for heat at outside vent. You also may need to clean it out more if lint has traveled down the vent. Also, clean out your lint filter religiously for more efficient drying. Those are the easy things to look for and fix on your own. If it still does not improve drying, you made need a repairman to trouble shoot it. Good luck!

Make sure the vent and tube are clear and not blocked in any way, if clear try washing off the lint screen with hot water, softener will clog the filter
and not allow proper air flow, water will bead up on screen if this is true
