The Kenmore Elite clothes washer with Quiet Pak is an electrical clothes dryer that features anti-wrinkle cycles, an extra large drum and an automatic moisture sensor. The Kenmore electric clothes dryer should work well as long as standard operating procedures are followed, such as cleaning the lint tray after every use and only loading medium sized loads of clothing or other material into the dryer. If other problems occur with the dryer, performing some troubleshooting may help identify and fix the issue.
M/F Ensure the dryer is properly connected to a grounded, working power supply if the dryer does not run. Check that the door is closed firmly and press the "Start" button.
M/F Look at the front and rear sides of the drum for caught items such as coins, buttons or paper clips if the dryer is making excessive noise during use. Ensure the legs are installed properly on all four sides and the floor is stable and level.
M/F Clean the lint screen if the dryer does not seem to be functioning well or heating properly. Examine the vent pipe from the dryer to the wall for possible obstructions and clear away excess dirt, lint or debris.
M/F Run the dryer and hold your hand next to the outside vent if the dryer is not heating well. If you do not feel air, contact an authorized service technician.
M/F Check to make sure an "Air Only" cycle was not chosen if there is no heat in the dryer. Air only cycles do not provide heat.
M/F Contact an authorized service technician for assistance if the above steps do not resolve the situation.
