Question and Answers


Kenmore Heavy Duty Electric Dryer #11096281800: Dryer is too, too hot, and we have already cleaned all ventalization & exhaust.


Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

Based on your symptom the dryer could be overheating due to a bad door seal, bad drum seal, dirty lint filter, welded contact in the operating thermostat or a shorted heating element. Unplug the dryer and remove heating element and inspect it visually to see if the heating element is sagging or broken and touching the heater housing. If the heating element is shorted to the heater housing it can cause it to not cycle off. Replace the heating element if you find the coils touching the metal housing. If the element is not broken or shorted to ground then it could have welded contact in the operating thermostat. The operating thermostat is located on the blower housing. The operating thermostat will have 4 wires attached to it. Disconnect the vent hose at the back of your dryer and monitor the temperatures over several "heat on heat off" cycles. The operating thermostat should regulate the exhaust temperature to an average of 150 degrees.

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 .
