I have a Kenmore electric dryer that since the day we bought it new takes forever to dry clothes. Usually over a hour for a load. I have cleaned and checked the vents, and took the vent hose loose and put a thermometer on the exhaust and it would cycles from 165 to 135 degrees. Seems pleanty but when you put clothes in it it still takes well over an hour to dry a load. my wife says this was a version that was low heat??? and that it is designed to delicate drying. Never heard of such a model, anyway, how can I make this dryer operate as a normal dryer? Or is this normal for it to take this long to dry, again, no restrictions, checked the element etc..

Hi,

** my wife says this was a version that was low heat??? and that it is designed to delicate drying. Never heard of such a model, anyway**

Whom knows, no model# posted :(

Some model# helps.

** Usually over a hour for a load**

Washer working/spinning ok?

Have you tried running a load with the vent off/disconnected from the dryer, to see how long it takes to dry?

It is a kenmore Dryer, model 110.76460210 and I have tried it with the vent hose off and it still takes the same time to dry, well over an hour. The temperture will vary (cycles up and down) from 165 to 135 at the vent exhaust as it is running with a load of clothes or without, not sure if this is correct or not, but it sure takes it's time drying. Again, it was this way when bought new from *****. It's not right, still looking for what will make it dry normally?

G'day,

**110.76460210**

Comes up as an 1974 dryer, that right?

**The temperture will vary (cycles up and down) from 165 to 135 at the vent exhaust as it is running with a load of clothes or without**

Temps seem good.

**my wife says this was a version that was low heat??? **

Shows regular style element = regular heat and not just a delicate :)

Check the washer to make sure the clothes are spun out ok before they are put in the dryer.

Grounded element, worn drum seals, lint filter restricted with fabric softner junk are common trouble makers....may need to "think outside of the box" if the drying process is taking too long....clothes are not stuck to the drum and are tumbling, heat is not working a couple of times and then quiting, etc.
