  Its been awhile since I have done any appliance repair, so Im checking for any pointers here. :woot: Customer said their Kenmore dryer c 1108476291     is taking too long to dry. Vent is clear.

Im thinking cycling thermostat,(  providing both elements are working fine. )  How do the moisture sensing strips come into play??  Couldn't find manual on the site either.....probably me rusty again....

As mentioned, I have been focusing on electrical for quite a few years, so im not as proficient  as techs that do this daily.              Thanks in advance!! :thanks:

I can't find a wiring diagram for that Canadian model

unless you have one you could scan & upload somewhere

Usually long drying times indicate a Vent problem

OR would need to know what temperature cycles of the air at the Dryer Vent

Usually about 135F to 160F with an empty load

Well, that's the model #. Hmmmmm? Well, will check elements, find print in console...( hopefully ), see how moisture sensors tie into circuit, and go from there.

Does the customer get the same results when using in timed dry as automatic cycles?  If so, the moisture sensors, wouldn't be in play here.  

Any play in the blower wheel, i.e. stripped out)?  Door seals, sealing well?  What do(es) the heater(s) ohm out to?  Any lint built up in the vent screen area?  When you open the dryer up, how much lint build up do you find?

Usually about 135F to 160F with an empty load

Also, the vent hose from the dryer to the wall.  How long is the dryer vent run?  How many 90* turns are there?  Vents should be 4 inch smooth walled, no longer than 25 feet subtract 5 feet for every 90 degree turn.

Is the Lint filter on top of the cabinet or inside of the door?  Or better yet, a good picture of the inside/outside of the machine may help determine a similar model#

Took a quick look when we were there, wiring a stove receptacle for him. Ducting is one 90 degree bend up, about 7 feet, then another 90 bend out the exhaust. I think ducting was ribbed. Elements were drawing 22 /23 amps. Lint screen was clear. Will further investigate in timed dry cycles and door seals.  :thanks:

On your model number.............you have  M#  110.8476291......I could not find any thing................BUT If you change the 8 to a 6.....M # 110.6476291 , Does that one fit your model??????..........The first 5 numbers after the dot is the Sears stock number, most of the dryer stock numbers  that I found start with a 6.................Plus a smudged 6 could pass for an 8............

It's a Canada model, makes it harder to find info.

 

Here's the Sears Parts Direct website for Canada, it looks like you would input model number as: 110C8476291

I don't know if the above will work or not, my computer really has problems with Sear Parts Direct websites.
