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/.

Kenmore model 90 dryer electric will dry the clothes takes a long time. Leaves the floor surrounding the dryer damp actually wet just not puddled


Are the clothes wet AND hot? If so - check the exhaust / vent hose for kinks or obstructions. That includes the cap / flap on the outside of the house.

If the clothes are wet AND cold, then the electric heating element isn't heating likely due to a broken or poor electrical connection, burned out heating element, defective thermostat, etc..

My dryer is on but it wont dry my clothes


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.

I have a series 90 heavy duty electric Kenmore dryer. I think the heating element has gone out. Is this an easy fix. Dryer still works just doesnt get hot to dry clothes.


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.

Dryer is working but do not emit heat so clothes do not dry


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.
Best wishes!

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.
