Kenmore 80 series 66814690 electric dryer

I have a Kenmore 80 series 66814690 electric dryer that appears to be working fine. No noise, Dryer Tumbles, Dryer heats up but clothes are wet.
I've noticed alot of humidity when opeing the dryer meaning that the exhaust must be clogged. Since I replaced the vent ducts with new ones I know they are clean. Troubleshooting the issue, I noticed that cool air is coming out of the exhaust instead of warm even though inside the dryer is hot. The lint tray is clean, I ran a dryer/vent cleaning brush up the exhaust to see if it was clogged... it came out clean. Where else would it be clogged?

Thanks,

David

    I took apart the exhaust shaft, and low and below the clog was the size of a Chiuahua. No wonder I picked up this dryer for $50.

    See pictures below



    Thanks

SOURCE: Auto dry not working

If there is a dryness sensor, it will be just inside the door, on the bottom right. You can clean the sensor by rubbing the metal bars with a scrubbing pad. This will remove any wax buildup from fabric softeners.
Possible reasons your clothes may still come out wet:
1. The dryer isn't tumbling the clothes.
2. The dryer isn't heating.
3. The airflow is restricted.

From your description, the third seems most likely. If your machine is the one pictured above, inside the dryer door is a plastic grate over the lint screen. Remove the lint screen. Remove the two screws on this grate (Phillips.) Use a vacuum cleaner with a crevice tool to get out as much lint as possible. Be careful to not shove any lint or debris further down into the blower wheel.
Lint can also clog up in the vent pipe. This pipe should be cleaned or replaced anually. Also, check the exhaust vent on the side of the house.

SOURCE: I have trouble with lint clogging up vent duct,

make sure the hose is short as possible and be sure you have long sweeps on turns not tight 90's as the tight 90s or bends slows down the velocity of the air thus causeing the ling to drop into the pipe.

SOURCE: my kenmore 80 series dryer won't heat but

Had similiar problem once and it turned out to be one leg of the 240 volt
supply was dead. The drum motor only needs one leg (120V) to run, but the Heating elements require both legs (240v). Make sure you have 240V at the recep.

Dryer heats, tumbles clothes, blows air out exhause vent, but wont dry clothes


what type is this electric or gas? have you removed the exsaust from the wall and ran a load like this? if you have heat and this is an electric dryer it sounds like you have a blockage in your house. if the dryer runs fine without the exsaust attached then that is your problem. let me know

Broken Kenmore dryer 80 series


Hi Dave. The problem is the drive belt. They aren't that difficult to replace and can be done with just a few tools. I'll need the exact model number off of the dryer to explain how to gain access to it, though. The number can be found behind the door on the cabinet (it'll start with 3 digits then a decimal point then more digits, like this; xxx.xxxxxxx)

The part number for the repair is 4392065. This is a complete maintenance kit for your dryer. I recommend it because since your belt wore out, there are other parts that should be taken care of at the same time. Here's a picture and a place to order if you can't find it locally.
