Question and Answers

Q:

I have a Kenmore Elite Dryer Model # 110.72956100 that is not getting completely hot . Its only getting warm and the setting is on high .

A:

When a gas dryer is not heating well then the first thing I suggest you check is the vent.

If the dryer is heating at all then the thermal fuse and ignitor are most likely okay.

If the flame only stays on for a short time the most likely cause of the problem is a restricted vent.

A vent airflow problem is one of the easiest problems to check. Pull the dryer out and remove the vent hose from the back of the dryer. With the vent off select and run a cotton/whites cycle with a medium wet load and see if the dryer works any better.

You can also check the temperature of the exhaust air with any thermometer with a range of 100 to 200 degrees. You should see the exhaust temperatures cycle between 130 to 160 degrees.

The thermistor might fail and cause the dryer to shut down after 10-20 minutes.

If the dryer works better with the vent hose off then the vent will have to be cleared. Don't try and catch up on laundry with the vent off.

Check the vent and temperatures first for this problem then submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.

Q:

Why does the door pop open on my Kenmore dryer?

A:

This is usually caused by the door hinges being damaged or the inner door panel is bent. Something like this could happen if too much weight is put on the opened door. If the door latch & strike are working properly I recommend replacing the door hinges & checking the inner door panel.
