Question about Dryers
my kenmore eletric dryer model 11064642400 leaves bad odor on the clothing and we have to run twice to dry 1 load.
what is the problem?
The moisture may not be getting out of the dryer quickly enough.
LONG dry time is an indication of a clogged or restricted exhaust. Inspect the hose in the back to make sure it is not crushed or kinked. Clogged or restricted exhaust is the primary cause of failure in all residential dryers. Blowing the the system with a shop vac is only a temporary solution. The system needs to be cleaned (2 to 3 times per year) with a rotary brush to scrape lint collecting from the sides of the pipe. Also consider replacing flexible plastic or foil pipe with rigid metal type. Dryer will vent 30% to 40% better. If condition persists for too long, a high limit fuse mounted on the heater will open causing the heater to no longer operate.
Remember..the purpose of the dryer vent is to get rid of moisture. If the moisture can't be removed quickly....the clothes will take a long time to dry, no matter how much heat there is....
Cleaning kits are available at most home improvement centers. or at this website: www.linteater.com
