Stops blowing warm 20 minutes before cycle ends

Have an old Kenmore dryer that stopped blowing warm but would still tumble and blow cool air. Recently ordered and replaced the heating element which did start the machine blowing warm again, but it starts going cold air 20 minutes before the cycle ends leaving the clothes damp.

Heather,

These old 80 Series units didn't have a "cool-down" cycle at the end of the cycle. These pre-date the current dryers. So, ... You may have a couple of possible issues: You may have a bad High Limit Therm on the blow tube near the heater. Those are cheap to replace. The kit is Part # 3387134 and includes a Thermal fuse, High Limit Thermostat and a Cycle Thermostat (probably the real culprit). Replace them all. You can get them on Amazon or a local appliance parts store.

The most expensive item, and the last in the line of heat controls (aside from the heating element which you have already replaced) is your Timer.

I would need to know the Model # (found on the inside of the body hidden by the shut door) to know which Timer you would need... IF you needed to replace that. My suspicion is the Therm set with the bad cycle therm.

In my case the problem was the dryer timer which I purchased online from Amazon for $89.99 from Repairwares. Received it in two days and installed it in under 10 minutes. Helped reduce the cool down cycle from 20 minutes to 5 allowing the clothing to fully dry and even improved the fluff cycle which was not working properly prior to changing this part.

Fantastic! Your problem could have been either one. If you have a similar problem in the future, it probably won't be the durable Timer, but the Cycle Therm. It wouldn't hurt for you to have one of those kits (3387134) on-hand.
