Customer Question
My stackable Kenmore dryer...

My stackable Kenmore dryer is not drying. It runs but after a while stops and the panel says clean lint filter.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Kenmore is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I'm not sure how old it is as it was in the house when I bought it. It has a model number inside of 417 98042700

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes if I can

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

That's it, other wise it working ok, just no heat
