Kenmore Dryers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
Is the error code f-22 on a kenmore HE 2 dryer dangerous???
The F-22 error indicates that the thermistor that detects the exhaust temperature has failed. (Sometimes the wiring between the thermistor and the control board will be faulty.) Sometimes the issue can be triggered by cold if the dryer is in an unconditioned space.
Unplug the dryer and access the wiring and thermistor. Check the wiring harness connections. Use a voltmeter to check the resistance across the thermistor. At normal room temperature, the resistance should be about 10,000 Ohms.
I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number (including the Kenmore prefix) if you need the parts diagram or other information about the dryer.

The dryer does get hot but takes a very long time
It sound like you have a venting problem. The air from the dryer is probably restricted by either a clogged exhaust hose or duct work in house or a stuck vent flap where air blows to the outside. If your vent goes straight up to the roof, something may be blocking the exit or the whole line may be clogged. Also check for a kinked flex hose that attaches to the dryer. If blockage is in wall of house, there are vent cleaning companies that can clean out the line.

My kenmore dryer is not warming when turn on? there's no current going to heating element? what's the issue?
i don't know. it could be the heating a home fuse or your
dryer's heating element. open the dryer door. locate the dryer fuse or circuit breaker to see if it needs replacing or resetting. reset the breaker a few times or replace fuses with a good one. shut the dryer door and choose a new settings with high heat for a test. if OK, good. if no heat, it may be your heating element or something else. if not able to repair yourself, consider the age of your dryer and
cost of a replacement. if it runs OK and fails again in days
or weeks, your home wiring should be inspected. call for service right away.

Kenmore elite dryer whistles when the heat element engages
Not knowing anything about your dryer, such as model number or age and when the last time it was given a good tune up. I would say that the pulley that works as a belt tensioner needs to be replaced. My best suggestion would be to give your dryer a good tune up which includes replacing all the rollers and pulley, the belt and a good cleaning. This would probably cure your noise and it would also reduce the chance of a dryer fire.
I hope this helps
