This happens when something blocks the air path. There could be a sock or a buildup of lint in the path or, your lint screen could have a hole in it. Depending on the age of the dryer, it is just from a slow buildup of the tiny bits that get through the screen. You'll have to open the unit from the back and pull out the air duce and wipe it out. It's more of a pain, than it is difficult. A 1/4" nutdriver ot socket and a phillips screwdriver should be all you will need from the back. If you need to pop the top to get to any screws, insert a putty knife of heavy metal spatula into the split between the top and front of the machine, about 1 - 2 inches from the side. Push straight in, into the clips that hold the top down. This will release them. There is one on each side.

    The same basic problem but in the water flow system. You will have to fill the machine with a good detergent and let it soak. Add a surfactant like Greased Lightning or TSP. This will dissolve the dried on lint in the water tubes. Also, remove the agitator and clean out the inside of it and under it.

Why isn't My Kenmore Heavy Duty 70 Series Soft Heat Extra Capacity Electric Dryer drying clothes on any one cycle?


One possibility: Air flow! Make sure that the lint trap is cleaned before each cycle. You likely need to thoroughly clean out the vent piping out the back of the machine- a buildup of lint in here can also restrict airflow.

I have a Kenmore 80 series heavy duty dryer that is not giving out much heat.What should I be looking for to solve the problem?


Is it gas or electrric? Either one i would check the dryer vent hoses. Check the lint trap as well. The lint trp is the exit for the hot air to circulate. Sometimes if clogged with lint these dryers could go either way they could over heat and cause a fire or cause the element or thermostat to fail. The electric dryers have a thermostat and a heating element. Those tend to go bad. Back panel should be taken off and unplug unit check.

80 Series Gas Dryer - No Heat. All other parts


check outside drye vent where it goes through the wall they clog up with lint sometimes and force the escaping warm air to back up which causes sensor to give wrong reading if this is clogged just clear it till you feel the air coming through also check vent at bottom of dryer disconnect flex pipe and check for clogs there as well ..and always clear lint trap after every load

My kenmoer 80 series dryer has heat but doesnot dry


1. VentingMake sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.
