gas dryer lights the first time but won't relight during the rest of the cycle. the glow bar does come on but the gas valve doesn't open. 11072822101 Kenmore Gas dryer


Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the dryer's burner assembly. I know how frustrating that is to have happen.

This sounds like an issue with weak and defective valve coils. These coils are needed to open the valve to allow fuel to come in and ignite the burner. The glow bar is coming on, but without gas being dispersed, it will turn off. I agree, this does not sound like an igniter issue. The gas coils that are on their way out will work on a cold start, but they will cease to function once the unit starts drying. 

For convenience, I have linked the valve coil kit below. This kit will include both coils and should fix your issue.

gas dryer won't relight after the first time. 11072822101 Kenmore Gas dryer


Hello, glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears We, at Sears, do value your business.
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the gas dryer.
Glad to help out.  I’m looking at your Kenmore gas dryer model number 11072822101.  

The gas dryer will not relight the key items to check is the ignitor itself to make sure it has enough juice to stay lit, the 2 coils beside the ignitor and the thermal fuse.


All items can be checked with a volt meter for continuity.

When a gas dryer isn't heating there are a few things to look at.

In the burner system you have

1.  The igniter key number 4 on burner page

2.  The pair of coils 13 & 14 on burner page

Behind the blower there is

3.  The thermistor key number 41 on blower page

4.  The thermal fuse key number 39 on blower page.
