kenmore dryer 70 series
« on: July 28, 2010, 09:58:44 AM »

my dryer was working fine but the vent hose came off and i moved the dryer to put it back on and while doing this one of the leveling feet came off so i tilted the dryer back and put it back on. Now the dryer runs fine blows plenty of air out the vent and I can hold the door open while it runs and see the elements heating but now it takes forever for the clothes to dry. What could be causing this. Is it one of the Thermostats, Thermal fuse, or what, any help is appreciated.

You need to remove the filter chute and check the lint in the blower

Wah out the filter itself too. It will get a film on it which causes overheating and premature control shutdown.

Is it happening on Auto dry, Time dry, or both?
