The dryer isn't getting hot


Here's a good troubleshooting article on them:
http://www.ehow.com/way_5389575_troubleshooting-kenmore-series-dryer.html

Keep in mind, it is an older dryer, but that series is known for being really good. If the article doesn't check out, I would suggest calling in a technician as it's possible something got damaged in the move/

My kenmore oasis dryer comes on but doesn't run


The tumbler is belt-driven so it could be a broken or slipped belt. It isn't hard to replace the belt itself but sometimes getting to it can be a real pain. Search online for service manual or diagrams if you want to attempt it yourself.

Dryer will get hot but will not dry clothes


If the dryer gets hot, but not drying the clothes my first question would be if the drum is turning or not. If not then I would check the belt and make sure it isn't busted. Then I would check to make sure that your exhause hose is not clogged up. If so clean out.

But if that isn't the problem then I would check the blower assembly.

The heating is not working properly, not hot enough. I tried 3 hours, but the clothes still not dry. It is a 120V Kenmore dryer.


IF THIS IS AN ELECTRIC DRYER 110 VOLTS ISN;T RIGHT 208 VOLTS SHOULD BE MORE LIKE THE ANSWER. IT TAKES 208 VOLTS TO RUN THE HEATING ELEMENT AND 120 VOLTS FOR THE MOTOR
SOMETHING DOSN'T SOUND RIGHT THERE
