Changed out rear bearing and heating coil now something smells like its burning


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Heating Element A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Heating Element Assembly A defective heating element assembly can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element assembly to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Air Flow Problem Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.
Felt Seal Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

I should like to have a Dutch or English user manual


Obstructed Vent
Your Kenmore dryer must be able to freely circulate air in the dryer in order for it to continuously supply hot air. If air flow is limited from a buildup of lint in the vent and lint tray, the high limit switch temporarily shuts off heat to the dryer. Empty the lint tray on the top of your dryer. Detach the exhaust vent -- the silver tube in the back of your dryer -- and thoroughly clean it out with a lint brush and reattach. Consult your Kenmore dryer manual for instructions on how to inspect and clean your vent hose. Once these components have been freed of lint, the dryer should dry clothes again.
Broken Blower Wheel or Belt
If you have completed a full inspection of your dryer vent system and found no obstructions, your dryer might have a defective blower wheel or belt. A failure of one or both of these components can restrict air flow in your dryer and take your dryer longer to dry clothes. According to Point and Click Appliance Repair, a noise coming from the dryer as the drum spins is usually an indication that the blower wheel is failing and needs to be replaced. Review your Kenmore dryer manual for instructions on how to locate these components on your dryer.
Faulty Thermostat
A broken thermostat can cause your dryer to produce too high or too low heat. Monitor the dryer exhaust temperature with a hand-held thermometer. The temperature should be below 150 degrees Fahrenheit. If the temperature reading is higher, then replace the thermostat. It's no longer able to regulate the temperature inside the dryer, and your dryer is in danger of overheating. If the temperature reading is room temperature and the dryer is running, the thermostat is broken and needs to be replaced.
Damaged Gas Valve Coils
Damaged gas valve coils permit your Kenmore gas dryer to ignite only once before coils must completely cool in order to reignite. This is a common issue among older dryers. If your dryer struggles to turn on or after it shuts off you must wait several minutes before it restarts, then the gas valve coil likely has worn. Confirm the location of the igniter from the manual. It's a cone-shaped tube that is located inside the dryer near the front panel close to the bottom. If the igniter radiates bright orange for 15 seconds without producing a flame, then the gas valve coils have probably failed.

NOT DRYER CLOTHS LIKE IT USE TO TAKING MUCH LONGER


Check for clogs in the vent air line. If dryer lint or some obstruction is slowing the air flow it will take longer to dry clothes. Also the dryer may not be getting hot enough. Check to see if the clothes feel hot or warm when you reach inside. If it feels hot enough it is likely an issue with air flow. heat and air flow are required to dry clothes.

Dryer suddenly does not produce hot air


have the exact same problem, just over 1 year old no heat! first off my duct work under my floor is like a snake and is not a straight shot out of the house. I beleive this caused a ristriction in the venting because dyer seemed to be running hotter them normal. I took the top off the dryer and pulled the vent tube out of the bottom of the dryer. To my surprise found a three inch layer of lint on the bottom of the machine and also on the heating coil. After cleaning out all the lint i took a volt meter to the two wires that come down to the heater. started the dryer and found i had 220volts at the heater indicating the heater is out, found one on ebay for about 50 bucks. will be installing this weekend and will let you know how it works.

My GE Profile Harmony Dryer is no longer Heating


Does it get hot when you turn it on, and then never gets hot again while its running? On my dryer the solenoid broke, when the dryer was cold it worked and the dryer operated properly because the dryer and solenoid were cold and the solenoid wire was closed, when the dryer was hot enough the solenoid opened and the heat would not restart. the solenoid is a coiled wire which is used to open the gas valve.

Dryer works but no hot air


Hello, if it's an electric dryer and you have absolutely no hot air, then it's either the heating element or the thermal cut-off, most likely.

The thermal cut-off is the fuse on the element's housing.

Check both for continuity. Good luck :)
Please feel free to keep emailing me if you'd like.
