A curious question concerning the lint trap. When I took the back off the dryer and took off the section that houses the lint trap I found lint half way down the in this section along with what appears to...


I am a furnace repair guy by trade, but as far as I know there shouldn't be anything in the lint trap section, are you sure its insulation and not lint?

If you had lint going that far down the trap, you may have lint plugging up your line going out the house. If you have the flexible pipe with the rings on it going out the house. I would look into the cleaning out the vent line.

One test you can do yourself, run your dryer find the vent on the outside of the house and feel the air coming out, if its hesistant or slow coming out, your vent might plugged up. If you have lint hanging from the vent outside or on the ground. Definately look into getting your vent cleaned out.

Maytag dryer will not restart immediately after drying a load. has to cool down


try cleaning out your dryer vent. Remove your lint trap and use a flexible wire brush to clean deep inside, then remove your dryer vent hose and make sure all lint is clean from the dryer side of the vent and the vent hose all the way to the out side vent.
Sounds like it may be clogged with a build up of lint

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.

Dryer has heat but clothes are still wet we dryed a dog pillow that came open and the stuffing went all inside. we took the back off and the shoot for the lint trap but there was no more lint.


If your machine is running properly and you have heat as you say then you may have a clog in the main vent line from the dryer through your house.

Try running the dryer once with the vent hose disconnected. If it dries your know the clog is in the house's vent line. Unusual but it does happen if you have a lot of lint.

Check first at the immediate opening point in the wall there is often a 90 degree elbow where lint can trap.

The other place is the cover plate on the outside of your house. Some at are static and others have vents that open and close. Those too can trap lint and cause a problem.

If you know you have a clog in the house line somewhere but the opening and exit are not clogged then take a drain auger (same as used to clear a clogged toilet) and run it through. If you don't have one try your garden hose.

Good luck.

Please rate if this gives you some direction.

Takes 3 cycles to dry clothes


This is a potentially deadly scenario. If the clothes are warm but just not getting dry, there is a problem with air flow - specifically - the lack thereof. The chance of fire is a real concern.

Make sure the lint baffle / trap is clear. This should be checked / cleared after each drying cycle. Most folks know about this, but I included it just in case this is your first dryer.

If the the baffle / trap looks clear, the exhaust tubing of the dryer is suspect. Many installations consist of the flexible / expandable hose. This hose may have become crushed during the running of the dryer, reducing air flow. Locate the hose and pull the dryer away from the wall to inspect, expand or replace the hose as needed. If an old installation, it is very possible that the hose has become clogged with lint build up over the years. The hose should be replaced in this case.

If at all possible, use aluminum expandable dryer duct. It is less likely to collect lint as quickly as the flex plastic style.

If the clothes are not warm or hot, the heat source (electric heating element or gas flame - depending on type) has a problem. Either of these problems should probably be referred to a pro for proper repair.

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

Kenmore 80 series keeps shutting off. new motor and lint line cle


take off the vent line from the back of the dryer,if it runs fine your vent line is blocked or the outside vent where the flapper opens might have a cage on it to keep animals out of the line,it keeps the animals out but it's a lint trap.if you have a long run use a leaf blower and blow out the vent line,if that's ok check the t-stats on the heater box,

Not drying clothes - have heat and tumble but probably not air Kenmore 80 series dryer.


Your vent is clogged. Remove hose from back of dryer and wall. vacuum out back of dryer, dryer hose an vent pipe in wall, if it goes out at roof you will need to clean out. Moisture from dryer is getting caught in excess lint trapped in vent causing dryer not to dry.

Can't find the lint trap


There must be two vents going into the interior of the dryer, one is the intake (where the hot air comes from), the other is the outtake (where the lint trap must be). Locate the two vents and see if one of them has anything removable near it (or if the vent itself has finger holes or something that you can grab and pull or slide it open).
