Default Dryer hot but not drying clothes
Model Number: 417.93142202   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hi.
My dryer has been shutting down. The outside gets really hot but the clothes don't dry. I had a repair man come out through my Home Owners Warranty ... and he said the vents were most likely clogged. He did nothing else. I pulled the dryer out and removed the vent tube and cleaned the opening. I then turned on the dryer with the vent tube unattached, and the same thing happened. The dryer got extremely hot on the bottom front and then the pilot light went out. I have a guy coming tomorrow to blow out the vents (since I live in a condo and my vent is on the roof). Any suggestions of what it could be?

Thanks,

Blasman

I responded to one of them,

But,

Remove the lint filter, and remove as much lint from the remainder of the housing,as best possible. Also check and remove any lint or crud from the inside of the exhaust pipe of the dryer.

A "cooks pocket thermometer" would come in handy here, but with the exhaust vent disconnected from the dryer and a pocket thermometer in the exhaust air flow, you should average 155 dgrs exhaust temperature in the exhaust air flow on the regular or high heat setting.

Hopefully, the vent cleaner can give you an idea of the actual operating size and length of the exhaust venting to the roof. It could be too long.
