My Kenmore 6.7 cu ft he2 Super capacity electric dryer is taking twice as long to dry. no error codes

It sounds like a connection problem with one of the heating elements, or perhaps only a clogged input or output hose from the dryer. Either of these could cause the problem...also, a burned out electric element.

My kenmore HE2 is not drying clothes. It turn s on and spins clothes but does not have heat. It is an all electic front loading dryer

If the dryer is not heating at all the three things that you want to check are going to be the heating element, the high limit thermostat and the thermostat. The high limit and the normal thermostat are going to be located on the heating element itself. All of these can checked with a volt meter set to check continuity. To access these depends on if the dryer has a two piece front or a solid front.If solid, Then you will just remove the back of the dryer and the heating element and thermostats will be located on the right hand side as your facing it, If a two piece, you'll need to remove the kick plate and the parts will be located on the right side once again. Just remember to unplug the machine , 220v hurts, trust me.

Stop work and is showing a code f 05

Water temperature sensor error
If during the water heating step in the wash cycle, the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out of range, or the heating element circuit has failed, the F05 error code will be displayed.

Potential Causes

• Check the Water Temperature Sensor, Heating Element and Element Relay
• Check connections to the Sensor, Heating Element and Relay

Hello there:
Please try each of these solutions i will provide below ok?
Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct INSIDE the back cover panel.
The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Dryer will not heat

Have a certified electrician check your outlet. The dryer requires 220VAC for the heating elements to work. If this is ok, check the heating elements it may be broken.If this is ok, check the high and low limit switches, this could be defective.
