Thank you for your question.  I am sorry you are having a problem with your Kenmore 110.72802100 gas dryer

The key to this problem is knowing what the ignitor is doing when the dryer stops heating.  There is a small square plug on the front panel that can be pried out so you can visually see if the ignitor continues to glow and click off. 

If the ignitor continues to glow and click off with no flame then the problem will be with the coils or the valve.   The coil kit with both coils can be obtained for approximaely $25 dollars.  It can be difficult to confirm if the coils or valve is the problem.   If you hear a buzz or hum from the coils when the ignitor clicks off but there is no flame the valve is likely the problem.  If you hear nothing then the coils are likely at fault. 

I hope this helps.  You can reply below with any additional details for further assistance. 

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

A:

If the ignitor (heating coil?) still ignites but there is no flame then the most likely cause are the gas coils or gas valve. If the ignitor glows then there is voltage. The ignitor should click off to direct the voltage to the coils. If the ignitor doesn't click off then the problem might be the radiant sensor. From the description you give I suspect the valve or the coils are at fault. Since they work the first time this can be a difficult problem to pin down. I'd suggest you start with the coils. Both coils come in a kit that is resonably priced. The coils are available from the following link: Gas Coil Kit for Kenmore Gas Dryer . The valve can also be located at the same site but at over $100 dollars I'd try the coils first. When the ignitor clicks off listen for a hum or buzz from the coils. If you hear this then likely the coils are okay.

A:

I just ran the dryer for a little while to get a better description of what happens. At first, the ignitor begins to glow and then there is a click as it shuts off, and the flame comes on at the same instant. The dryer runs like this for 10 minutes or so, and then there is another click as the flame shuts off. After a few minutes, there is a very quiet hum as the ignitor begins to glow again, and then it clicks off. However, I do not not notice any humming or buzzing. I will try replacing the coils as you have suggested. Is there any explanation as to why the flame might come on the first time, every time, but never again after that?

It does not matter which spade the red wire goes on and when spade the blue wire attaches to. The wires can go in either order. It will work properly either way.
