Q:

Tumbler doesn't spin 11072702101 Kenmore Gas dryer

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your dryer is not spinning. I did look into the model number you have provided and I have found that if your unit is not spinning then you will need to check the belt. The belt controls the spin on your dryer. I have attached a photo on how to replace the belt. Click here to order a new belt. 

Let me know if this helps.

You can find troubleshooting information for your dryer not drying clothes in your owners manual. I have located your owners manual here on the Manage My Life website. I attached the link below for you to view. I hope this is helpful.

Since the dryer is not drying the clothes, I suspect that you have a heating problem or a restricted vent. The problem with the timer advancing could be caused by a wiring failure or a problem with an internal switch in the timer. The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the first image below. The heater circuit is traced in red. The neutral side of the timer motor circuit if traced in orange for the Auto cycle. See if the timer advances in the Auto cycle. NOTE: If the dryer has a heating problem, it may not advance properly in the Auto cycle.

If the timer does advance properly in the Auto cycle, I recommend that you unplug the dryer and check the white/black wire on the timer. The 4th image below shows access information for the console. The first image has a diagram of the timer with the wiring connections labeled. If you don't find a problem with the wiring connection, then you may need to replace the timer. You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If the dryer is not heating properly, I recommend that you check the gas supply cut-off valve. Make sure that the dryer has an adequate gas supply provided to it.

If the gas supply is okay, then you could have a problem with the gas burner or the heating electrical circuit. I recommend that you pull the observation plug on the lower front panel of the dryer and observe the burner assembly while the dryer is running in a heated cycle with a medium load of wet laundry. The second image shows the theory of operation for the burner assembly. If the ignitor is not glowing, I recommend that you unplug the dryer and check the thermal fuse. That component is shown in the third image below. Remove the back panel (with the dryer unplugged ) to access that component. You can check the thermal fuse using a volt/ohm meter. Pull one wire off of the fuse and check the resistance across the leads of the fuse. It should measure near zero ohms of resistance if the fuse is good. If it measures Ol (open load or infinite resistance) then the fuse is blown and will need to be replaced. You can check to see if the dryer will heat by taping the wire that go to the thermal fuse together with electrical tape (with the dryer still unplugged ). Reassemble the dryer and see if the igniter glows with the thermal fuse "bypassed" in this manner. If it does then the thermal fuse will need to be replaced. NOTE: Do not continue to run the dryer with this fuse bypassed. It is an important safety component that must be replaced. Also, check the exhaust vent duct system for a clog or restriction. An unresolved problem with exhaust air flow could cause the thermal fuse to blow again shortly after replacing it.

Other problems that could prevent the igniter from glowing include:

  • Failed timer
  • Bad igniter
  • Open flame sensor
  • Bad high limit thermostat
  • Blown thermal cut-off fuse (separate fuse from the thermal fuse)
  • Bad motor centrifugal switch
  • Wiring failure in the heating circuit

If the igniter is glowing but the gas valves won't open (or only open once from a cold start) then you could have failed gas valve coils (part 279834 is a kit that has both coils).

These tips may help you with these dryer problems. You appear to have 2 failures in the dryer. If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.
