Mailbag: Slow Drying Dryer

Kenmore Dryer doesn’t dry the clothes very well. Takes 3-4 cycles to do so. Would it be the thermostat or the heating element and where are these located? How do I replace these by myself?

This is one of the most common dryer complaints. The cause is so simple that most grasshoppers don’t believe me when I tell them. Oh, how I valiantly try to explain to them that the problem isn’t the dryer at all, it’s the vent. "But I checked the vent and it’s clear," they reply, incredulously. The Samurai has the cure for your ignorance in his famous dryer venting primer. Knowledge is power!
