good day ,
I have a Kenmore dryer 66702692 . it is not heating like it should . takes forever to dry clothes .. I just picked this up used 2 days ago . the vent is free and clear . ok here is the deal , it blows warm air sometimes not hot air ..if I open the door and hold the switch I can see the element turn on for about 20 seconds then off . and it keeps doing this , when the door is shut and clothes in side, not many I might add it hardly gets warm . I have a strong flow outside ( at the discharge ) Luke warm damp air .
if I put my hand on the back of the dryer in the location of the element . it is a little warm but not much ( you can hold your hand on there and never worry about getting burned .. so my guess is the element .. but if it does warm up a bit and then shut off could it be something else ..
many thanks for your help
