Thanks for the information about your dryer model 110.72842100; sorry you are having a problem, I will be glad to assist you. The parts you have replaced to this point all being on the burner assembly tells me that you must have determined that there is 120 volts ac to the blue and black wire feeding the burner assembly. If that is correct then the problem would still be in the burner assembly and I would suggest rechecking all the connections on igniter, sensor and coils. _Always disconnect power supply before servicing the appliance and when testing live voltage be sure to wear proper safety equipment (gloves and eye protection) also be aware of sharp metals on productIf these parts were replaced without verifying power to the burner assembly, now this needs to be verified. You will need a high quality volt/ohm meter and a basic understanding of electrical circuits. If there is no power to the burner assembly with the dryer set to high timed dry, you will need to ohm out the circuit components, thermal fuse, cycling thermostat, and high limit thermostat. These are the most common components to cause no heat. Other components could be involved however that is rare. I will attach an image below with wiring diagram that will help you trace the heat circuit.  I hope this helps, if you need additional assistance please reply with results of your testing and I will be happy to respond.If you need additional parts here is a link to Sears Parts Direct.If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services. Ron H.

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife.com. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your dryer not heating. We are here to help. I suspect one of the thermostats is open. If the high limit or operating thermostat is open, the ignitor will not glow. I recommend checking the 2 thermostats with a multimeter. The thermostat that checks open is bad and needs to be replaced. The schematic below shows the circuit. I hope this helps.

Thanks for the information about your dryer model 11072842100; sorry you are having a problem again, I will be glad to assist you. After replacing coils with no positive results I now suggest testing the burner assembly for power supply. There should be 120 volts ac between the blue and black wires to the burner assembly, if there is power then check the igniter. If there is no power to the burner assembly you will need to trace the heat circuit using the wiring diagram below.  When the dryer is set to high heat and running the igniter should glow bright red/orange, if it does not check power to the igniter it should have 120 volts ac to it as well. If there is no power to the igniter but there is power to the burner assembly then the igniter is bad.  If the igniter glows and cuts off without a flame coming on then the flame sensor will be the problem.  I hope this helps, if you need additional help reply with added details and I will be happy to respond. If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services.If you need parts here is a link to Sears Parts Direct.
