Kenmore elite gas dryer won't stay running model 110.72982102 110.72982102


Model #11072982102 Gas dryer stops 11072982102 Kenmore Gas dryer


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears

I am sorry and do understand your frustration when the dryer won't start.

Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore model number 110.72982102.

The dryer stays running but stops when you take yoru finger off the start button correct?

Open the door and close it a little harder than normal to see if there is a door switch problem.   Sometimes it works.   If it does then you know for sure if you have a door switch problem.

You can take off the lid switch and run it with an ohm meter to see if you have continuity going in and out.  

My book says it could also be the cause of your heat board.  That is if it stays running till you remove your finger from the button/knob.   It is a heater board right next to your timer control.

I have a link below showing the board.   It is key number 37 on the control panel.

Hi Joseph,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

Here is a video that demonstrates gaining access to and replacing the thermal fuse on a dryer like yours; Video . Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts. The dryer in this video may not look exactly like yours but the procedure is basically the same.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website; Sears Home Services .

Here is a link that you may use to purchase the Thermal Fuse 3390719 for your Kenmore model number 110.72982102 dryer .

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance please include more details in a reply to this post.
