Major Appliances/Kenmore Elite HE3 Dryer issues


Darin wrote at 2013-01-29 02:17:57
The Kenmore HE3 dryer has a manufacturing defect that keeps the lint screen from fully sealing in the duct.  This allows a lot of lint to get past the screen and fill up the ductwork.  This very quickly reduces the efficiency of the dryer.  Worse, the lack of sealing in the ducts themselves inside the dryer allow this lint to escape and be pulled into the heating elements.  To fix this, you have to open the bottom duct and fit silicone sealing (weatherstripping) where the bottom of the lint screen fits to properly seal this area.  This will keep your ducts clean and keep the dryer running efficiently and safely for a long time.
