Q:

Dryer 500 kenmore 2008 (lot# 430) NO Lint on filter

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Having the model number of your dryer would be helpful.

Based on your details you are describing a venting issue. The lint you found trapped outside at the vent hood was restricting the air flow through the dryer drum and filter. A restricted venting system will also cause your dryer to take longer to dry a load of clothes as well.

Note: Sheets do not normally loose a lot of lint while drying and it's not unusual for the lint filter to trap very little lint when drying sheets.

For testing purposes only: Disconnect the vent hose from the back of the dryer and then dry one normal load of clothes. If the clothes dry in a normal amount of time and the lint filter is trapping more lint then this test would confirm the venting system is restrictive or clogged causing the long dry times and would explain why very little lint is being trapped by the lint filter.

Make sure the vent hose is not kinked or pinched also.

Q:

Maytag washer machine doesn't spin but filled with water

A:

That type of voltage drop when the washer is plugged in is very unusual. You could have a problem with the outlet or you could have short in one of the washer components.

Check to see if you get that same voltage drop when you plug a different appliance or a lamp into that outlet. If the outlet is bad, then you will need to have an electrician fix that problem.

If possible, you can try plugging the washer into a different outlet. See if you get the same voltage drop when it is plugged in. If you do, then I recommend that you have a service technician examine the washer. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

Why does our Sears Kenmore dryer turn (tumble) but does not produce any heat?

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The first thing to check and confirm is the voltage supply. The heating element must have a 220 volt power source or it will not heat. Locate the two house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer and reset both circuit breakers. Flip both breakers off and on 2-3 times and then see if the dryer will heat. If continues to run and not heat, the voltage supply should be checked and measured across the two outer terminals on the terminal block. The terminal block is located on the back of the dryer and the power cord will be connected to it. NOTE: I do not recommend making voltage measurements unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I suggest calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.

If 220 volts is measured, then it could have a broken/burnt out heating element, faulty thermal cutoff, high limit thermostat, operating thermostat, timer or a faulty motor centrifugal switch.

The heating element, thermal cut off, high limit, operating thermostat can be disconnected and tested with an Ohm meter for continuity. Which ever one measures open/no continuity would need to be replaced. These components are located behind the rear panel. I recommend disconnecting the power cord and then remove the rear panel. Each one of the components can be accessed, disconnected and tested for continuity.

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 .
