Question about Kenmore 45081 Front Load Washer / Dryer

Kenmore All in One?Dryer Heat Minimal?Excessive Dry time

Greetings,

I just hooked up the All In One, I got from a friend—after completely cleaning all interior surfaces of lint—from years of neglect. The unit is sound, and washed two loads efficiently. The back wall of the dryer became hot to the point of 'un-touchable,' but the load of lightweight items (t-shirts/pyjamas)—took forever to dry. The vent output was warm, the lint collected on the screen, normal.

The items in the dryer were never HOT when I checked the load; not even a little. It was as if ONLY the backwall was being heated by the element.

What do you make of it?

Thank you for your consideration.

Be sure vent to outside is not plugged or partially block be sure vet tube in back is not compressed flat or folded basically be sure you have good air flow to outside to take the moisture to the outside away from the clothes

Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Kenmore Gas Clothes Dryer does not heat sufficiently


Ok, first and foremost, make sure your vent is clean and clear.
If the vent is clean and free of obstructions the most likely culprit is your gas valve coils. When they fail the typical symptom is heat at the beginning of the cycle and no heat about 20 minutes later.
If you can, post the complete model number from the dryer and I will give you step by step tear-down and replacement of parts instructions.

I have a kenmore HE2 dryer and matching washer. It is 3 years old. It works and eventually clothes do dry. It does heat up. But it doesn't heat up as hot as it used to and it takes twice as long to dry...


Make sure you check your exhaust line and where the air blows to the outside. If your exhaust vent or hose is bent or restricted it will take a very long time to dry the clothes. Sometimes the vent flap on the outside exhaust is stuck shut. Clear dryer exhaust venting is critical for proper operation. Several companies offer a vent cleaning service where they completely clean out the exhaust lines.

Kenmore 90 series gas dryer, NO HEAT!!!


Hi, if you get no glow on the ignitor and you have voltage its the little white two terminal fuse on the exhaust side that has no continuity on the series 80 it has 2 blue wires, these complete the circuit for both gas valves and the ignitor. If you have an ohm meter it you will find it rite away. Hope this helps.
