Question about Dryers
Hello, I have a Kenmore stackable electric dryer model (970-78712-10) It is installed on the side of my washer, not on top and they are not enclosed. I've had this dryer for about 9 years problem free. Today I've noticed that while the drier is working in the hot air cycle, the top is quite warm to touch. The back edge and back panel are so hot that burn to touch. I never checked this before, so it is the first time I've noticed this. Is this abnormal? I often clean the lint trap enclosure by unscrewing the vent panel so there is no blockage. I would really appreciate a comment.
This alway in a indication of a venting issue it would seem that it is not in your venting that you can see but it may be plugged up in the wall somewhere in this case you will need a pro. chimney sweep or THE DRYER VENT WIZARD if there is one in your area to come and clean your vents

Hello - The following could be reasons for your dryer to stop working; there could possibly be a malfunction in the thermostat in the return, so if it gets too hot on the auto dry cycle, it stops and will not re-start until it cools down. This could be caused by either lint or something else clogging the vent thus causing it to overheat. You should be able to feel the top of the dryer right at the back of the top near the console right after it shuts off. If it is getting too hot to the touch look to the items I have mentioned. Should you find that these suggestions are ineffective, may we suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately who will be able to diagnose the problem.
