Re: Kenmore series 90 plus dryer
LONG dry time is an indication of a clogged or restricted exhaust. Clogged or restricted exhaust is the primary cause of failure in all residential dryers. Check the exhaust hose in the rear of the machine and make sure it it not crushed, kinked or clogged with lint. The vent pipe should be rigid metal not flexible foil or flexible plastic. If everything in rear looks OK, check the outside vent hood for any blockages. If everything checks out, the exhaust system may need cleaning. Cleaning kits are available at most home improvement centers or this website http://www.linteater.com/.

Start by checking that the exhaust pipe is not blocked. Without airflow drying will be very slow. If you have good airflow, then the next item to check is the heating element, which can be checked with an ohm meter.
If The front panel is one assembly then the element is on the back behind the cover, if there is a small panel on the bottom ending about where the door starts the element is behind that panel on the right hand side. In either case it if fairly easy to get to. Also check the two thermostats on the heating element. Both should have continuity. If either one is open replace them both.
The problem is that the heating element has failed. This is an easy repair and if you are handy you can get all the information you need from the sears web site to assist you in changing the heating element. Product manuals are available for most in-stock items.
Order a product manual by calling 1-800-366-PART (1-800-366-7278). Or download a free product manual at www.managemyhome.com
The repair part is also available from sears parts deptartment (www.searspartsdirect.com) and will be about $50 guessing.
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.
