Re: kenmore elite HE4
THE AIR FLOW THROUGH THE DRYER BEGINS UP THROUGH THE HEATER AND INTO THE DRUM THROUGH THE HOLES INSIDE THE DRUM TO THE LEFT IN THE REAR.
THESE HOLES ARE METALIC IN COLOR AND MAY SHOW SIGNS OF DISCOLORATION DUE TO THE HEAT OF THE HEATER ASSEBLY. FROM THERE, THE AIR WILL FLOW ACROSS THE CLOTHES AND THROUGH THE LINT FILTER.
IF YOUR LINT FILTER IS LOCATED ON TOP OF THE DRYER,
THE HOLES WILL BE IN THE BACK WALL OF THE DRUM ON THE RIGHT. IF YOUR FILTER IS LOCATED IN THE FRONT OF THE DRUM, THE HOLES WILL BE JUST BELOW IT.
USUALLY, LINT WILL COLLECT DOWN INSIDE THE SPACE WHERE YOU INSERT THE FILTER ON A FRONT LOCATION.
PULL THE FILTER OUT AND LOOK DOWN INSIDE. USE A CENTER CARDBOARD FROM GIFT WRAP TO CLEAN OUT THIS AREA. FLATTEN OUT THE CARDBOARD ROLL AND PUT IT DOWN IN THE SPACE ATTACHING THE OTHER END TO A VACUUM CLEANER HOSE.
ALSO, DISCONNECT THE DUCT WORK FROM THE REAR OF THE DRYER AND CLEAN OUT THE DRYER DUCT AND THE HOUSE HOLD EXHAUST DUCTING. WHEN REATTACHING THE FLEX DUCT TO THE BACK OF THE DRYER, MAKE SURE THERE ISN'T ANY EXCESS FLEX DUCT SNAKING BEHIND THE DRYER. CUT IT TO THE LENGTH NEEDED. MAKE SURE IT ISN'T FLATTENED BETWEEN THE DRYER AND THE WALL WHEN YOU MOVE THE DRYER BACK INTO PLACE.

don't know if you already had this fixed,usually this is caused by not having your dryer cleaned out,the lint builds up inside the duct that the lint filter slides down into and has to be removed and cleaned out.also in some of the kenmore dryer ducts there's a metal clip inside the duct that can come loose and hold the lint filter up.these are the two most likely causes for this to happen.
for using FixYa. No Heat
issue in an electric dryer is usually caused due to three things mainly:
Thermal Fuse, Wiring Harness and/or Heating Element. Start with checking the
Thermal Fuse which is mounted inside the back cover panel to the exhaust duct
and is mounted in white plastic housing. If that’s fine then the Heating
Element should be checked. Please do rate the solution if the
issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
check the thermal fuse with a meter located on the blower wheel housing,take out the lint filter,remove the bottom cover and remove the metal duct that the filter slides into,you'll see the thermal fuse on top and to the right of the blower wheel,pull one wire off and read out the fuse.while you have the duct off clean it out,vac the inside of dryer and clean out the vent line,why did you change the heat element?usually there isn't two problems,next time read out the parts with a meter so you're not changing out good parts
limit switch stuck open should be behind motor housing is a tight fit to get to but there are two there on the element one on vent tube the other is thermal switch recommend chang the two on the tube ck element limits should all read continuityif not reolace
might need a clean out keeping heat inside of dryer,or you have abad motor,take the vent line off the back of dryer and run it to see if the block is in the vent line or in the dryer,also take off bottom panel,unplug dryer,take out lint filter and then remove the duct that the filter slides into,if it's blocked clean it out and you should be all set,usually the thermal fuse pops when this happens so that's why i say you could have a bad motor
if dryer is filled with lint or vent line is blocked the clothes will not dry correctly,shop vac is great for this it sucks and blows,vac out what you can see and then blow out the lint from back and on motor,clean out the lint duct,where ever you pull out your lint filter either on top or inside dryer you have to clean out the duct.now go outside and check the flapper,if it isn't blowing open or hardly opening i use a leaf blower and take off the vent line from the back of dryer and blow it out,good luck
Sounds like a clogged exhaust duct or vent. If not venting properly, most dryers will turn the heat off, for safety reasons.
Go for the easy fix first. Before removing your exhaust ducts from the dryer, look for any kinks that may cause blockage. Clean out the duct of any lint or water that may have accumulated. Check the vent on the outside of the house and make sure that its not clogged and opening properly.
Manual might be available on line type in your make and full model. Could well be the bulb that blew. Sounds like the door switch thou i see by other postings some times the filters can cause a similer problem
GUEST. 1. start switch is faulty...oops is it eletronic?it so disregard that. 2 drum is to tight 3 motor or switch on motor faulty
smitty123. Will drum turn by hand??? Can you hear the motor hum when you close the door???
