Thank You for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com

I can understand how frustrating it can be when your dryer is not working like it should. I know how time consuming it can be, when you have to hang your clothes out to dry.

There are a couple parts you would want to check with a multi-meter. If you do not have experiance using a multi-meter I recommend having one of our Sears Technicians out to diagnose the problem.

The first part you want to check is the glow bar ignitor. This ignitor can burn out over time. Which will cause your dryer to not heat. Because the ignitor won't be able to light the gas.

The next two parts you want to look at are the thermostates. The thermostates trigger the ignitor and the fan to kick on once the dryer is started.

I have included a link to our PartsDirect page where you can purchase the part you need to complete your repair. Just click the blue link below to be taken to the page.

A:

While the sensor was a good thought this particular dryer doesn't use a moisture sensor to control the automatic cycle. This dryer has a "resistor" that controls the timer movement in the automatic cycle. If the timer is not moving and the dryer is heating then the resistor is most likely the cause of the problem. The resistor is located in the console are and can be found by following the orange wire from the timer. It can be checked with a meter if one is available and you feel comfortable using it to check resistance. The timer can be access by removing the rear console panel. Remember to unplug the dryer first. I hope this helps. You can reply with any additional details for further assistance.

Q:

What is wrong with my Kenmore model 110.72712100 gas dryer when the drum doesn't turn?

A:

From your description of the problem a broken belt is the most likely cause of this problem.

You can select the cycle and time and the dryer starts up indicates the motor is running but the drum is not turning.

If the motor is running but the drum is not turning then I recommend checking for a broken belt first.

If you're comfortable and confident in your do-it-yourself abilities the belt can be checked by raising the top of the dryer.

To raise the top first pull the lint filter out of its chute and remove the two screws located there.

With a putty knife you can release the two clips located about 2-4 inches from the cabinet front corners.

With the top up you should be able to see the belt around the drum. If the belt is not there then it's broken and will need to be replaced.

Replacing the belt requires removing the front panel of the dryer. The front panel is held buy two bolts located on the top corners. With the bolts removed you pull the panel out and put to remove it.

I hope this information helps to resolve this problem for you. If you have any additional questions then submit one with any additional details for further assistance.
