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.

My kenmore elite dryer that i bought 2 years ago lint trap corner is catching my clothes and tearing them. we had it replaced and its doing it again. I am tired of messing with it. Please help.


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.

My Kenmore elite electric dryer will not heat. I


Hi


Thanks 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

Heat does not come out the dryer and dryer has a new heating element.


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

My kenmore elite Smartheat quietpak9 model HE4, keep turn off after 15 to 20 minutes, it does getting hot. Could you please let me know what will be a problem. I bought it used so I am not sure how old is...


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

Kenmore Elite HE4 does not dry the cloths all the way.


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

HE4 propane dryer wont heat, how do I get the codes display?


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.
