my kenmore dryer stopped letting air vent today and also started making a louder then usual noise. I checked the vent outside and the louvers were not even opening, so i would like to know what would cause this. the dryer seemed to get very hot and smelled very hot.
is there a belt or smoething that might have broke? the drum still turns, just no air comes out
