Question about Kenmore 45081 Front Load Washer / Dryer
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

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