Question and Answers


I have a 1988 Kenmore model110.86692810 and it takes twice as long to dry clothes. Any suggestions?


A dryer's drying time is largely related to the flow of air through the machine and the condition of the venting hose. If air is impeded in its pathway out of the dryer, or if there is a blockage in the venting hose, it could reduce the rate at which clothes are drying in your dryer. If you are unable to clean the vents yourself, I do recommend having a professional to clean the vent to clear any blockage. Here are some tips below to check as well :

  • Venting issues - are caused by restrictions in the vent. Check to see if the vent behind the dryer appears kinked crushed, or pretzeled
  • Have you had your vents cleaned within the last 12 months? If not you may have some blockage in the vents, and you may want to consider having your vent/air ducts professionally cleaned.
  • Is there any build up underneath or behind dryer?
  • Check to see what you have your dryer set on. Air dry, Air fluff, Auto dry, No heat dry.
  • Are you putting heavy loads , very wet loads, or very heavy loads in the dryer?
  • Sensor drying - Sensor bars must be clean and clothes must contact the Sensor bars, or the control will sense the clothes are dry.

If none of these tips listed help, I recommend calling a service technician to properly diagnose and repair your dryer
