Question and Answers

Q:

Burner comes on for about 30 seconds then goes out 11072202101 Kenmore Gas dryer

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your dryer. Upon researching 11072202101; it could be the igniter. The igniter needs to get to a certain temperature to signal the valve to open. If the igniter temperature drops it won’t keep the burner on. Also there are the coils that could be going out. I linked the diagram below. The igniter is number 4 and the coils are number 13.

We appreciate your business. Have a great day.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. The burner is supposed to cycle off and on in order to maintain an average operating temperature of approximately 150 degrees when set on high heat. Remove the vent hose from the back of the dryer and start an empty dryer and monitor the exhaust temperature with a thermometer. The exhaust temperature should average around 150 degrees if the dryer is operating normally. Now, if you have a restricted venting system it will cause the flame to short cycle/shut off before it reaches operating temperature. If you find it doing this with the vent hose connected, check and clean the venting system of any kinks or lint.

If you find the glow bar igniter glowing red and then fading off without any burner ignition, then this would indicate weak solenoid coils mounted on top of the gas valve assembly and both coils will need to be removed and replaced. You can watch the burner operation by prying off the small square plastic inspection cover located below the door. Start the dryer and monitor the glow bar operation. The burner should ignite each time you see the glow bar igniter glowing red.

Reply with additional details of your finding for further information.

Q:

What part do I need to order for my Kenmore dryer model number 110.72202101, for it to heat up?

A:

In reference to your Kenmore dryer, model number 110.72202101;

If your dryer doesn't heat, check these :

  • Igniter
  • Gas valve coils
  • Vent
  • Internal ductwork
Igniter : Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite. When the igniter burns out, you need to replace it. If the igniter is held by a tension bracket, you very well may need to replace the bracket too.

The igniter is inside the dryer housing, near the bottom front, usually in a cone-shaped metal tube (the force cone). It's about 2 inches long. It's mounted to the far end of the burner tube, and it has two wires attached to it--or to the tension bracket, if there is one.

Gas valve coils : Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time.

Vent : Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. Also note that, to maximize drying efficiency, the vent should be as short as possible.

Internal ductwork : Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician.
