Thanks for your inquiry about the dryer not heating properly, I know that it is frustrating. I will be happy to assist.

Based on your description of it taking too long to dry clothes but still is heating almost always means an air flow problem. I understand that you have checked the vent but this is most often the culprit. Here is quick way to test for a venting problem. Remove the vent hose completely from the back of dryer. Run a heavy load with this vent hose disconnected. If the dryer seems to work okay then you know the vent has a problem and needs cleaning. Other areas to check are under the filter, take filter out and peer down into the cavity a buildup of lent can block air flow as well. Also from the back of the dryer with vent hose disconnected peer into the metal vent on dryer there could be blockage there also.always disconnect power supply before servicing appliance

Try these tips first and if you are completely sure that air flow is good then you can consider other problems. We can instruct you on other possible causes. You can also order get a owner�s manual. From Manage My Life .com. I hope this helps you with the dryer problem and if you need additional help please reply with details. If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

Thanks Ron H.

Hi Nette,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

I am including the instructions for wiring 3 and 4 prong power cords in the image below. If the cords are the same, just wire them according to the way the old cord was wired. Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram or to purchase any parts needed; Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance please reply to this post.

Hello Landell, Thank you for your reply and images of wiring the cord. My husband has studied the images and feels he can wire the newer cord into the older dryer. He will try this tomorrow as it is later in the day and he does best in the mornings. I will let you know how it goes. Thank you very much again, Nette

Q:

What is wrong and what should I check on my Kenmore model 11086573130 dryer when it just stopped working like there is no power?

A:

When an electric dryer suddenly stops working and appears dead the most likely cause of the problem is an open thermal fuse.

The thermal fuse is located on the exhaust housing in the rear of the dryer. See the image below for help with this. Remember to unplug the dryer first before removing the rear access panel.

If you have a volt/ohm meter and are comfortable using it then the fuse can be checked for continuity across it. If the circuit is open you have found the problem. The 3392519 thermal fuse is approximately $15 dollars and is available from the following link: Sears PartsDirect .

If you don't have a volt meter or know how to use one you might try replacing the fuse. It is not very expensive and makes an excellent do-it-yourself project.

If extreme caution is used the thermal fuse can be bypassed for a moment to see if it is the problem. With the dryer unplugged you remove the two wires off the thermal fuse and join (jump) them together. Wrap with a little electrical tape and don't let the wires touch anything metal. With the thermal fuse bypassed try and run the dryer and see if the dryer will run.

I hope this information is helpful to you but submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.
