A:

Make sure that you have an adequate gas supply provided to the dryer.

The second image below shows the theory of operation for the gas burner on this dryer. If recommend that you check to see if the igniter is glowing when the dryer is running in a heated cycle. If you turn off the light in the laundry room, you may be able to determine whether that ignitor is working. You may need to remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the third image to see that igniter. Do not make contact with live wires or components if you pull that service panel off and operate the dryer with that panel removed. Shut off the dryer and unplug the power cord as soon as you determine whether that igniter is glowing. If the igniter is not glowing, then you could have a blown thermal fuse. That fuse is shown in the 4th image below. The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the first image with that heating circuit through the igniter traced in red. You can check to see if a blown thermal fuse is causing your heating problem by removing the wires on that fuse and taping them together with electrical tape. This will bypass that fuse for a brief test. Make sure that you have the dryer unplugged when bypassing that thermal fuse. Once that fuse is safely bypassed, plug the dryer back in and start it in a heated cycle. If the burner ignites properly with that fuse bypassed then you can fix this problem by replacing that thermal fuse. You can order that part from this page: Thermal Fuse for Kenmore Dryer Model 110.73012100 . Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing and replacing that fuse. Also, check the exhaust vent duct path to the outside of your home for a clog or restriction if that thermal fuse was blown. That type of unresolved problem could cause the fuse to blow again shortly after you replace it.

Note: Do not continue to run the dryer with that thermal fuse bypassed. It is an essential component that must be replaced to safely operate the dryer.

If that igniter does glow and fades off but the burner does not light, then you could have bad gas valve coils. Here is a link for a previous answer that describes how to replace those gas valve coils: DRYER NOT DRYING CLOTHES .

These tips may help you fix that dryer heating problem. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

I understand that your dryer is not heating and it can be such unfortunate since it is a commonly used household appliance. This information can be located inside of your owners manual under the Troubleshooting section. I was able to locate the manual for you if you do not have it. I attached the link below. I hope that you are able to fix this problem on your own. I wish you the best of luck.

Thanks for your help, but I was not able to locate anything regarding the "heating element" in my owner's manual or the one you linked.

A:

From the model number you submitted this appears to be a gas dryer and will have no heating element.

When a gas dryer runs but does not heat the first thing to check is the thermal fuse.

The 3390719 thermal fuse can be checked for continuity if you have a meter or bypassed with a small piece of insulated wire if caution is used.

The image below will help you access the thermal fuse.

Remember to unplug the dryer first.

Q:

Why does my gas dryer run but does not dry?

A:

You did not indicate if the dryer is producing any heat at all or not. I will assume the dryer is not heating at all.

The dryer could have one of several possible failures.

  • Timer
  • an open thermal fuse
  • an open operating thermostat
  • an open Hi-limit thermostat
  • broken glow bar igniter
  • an open flame sensor
  • loose wire connection
  • failed motor centrifugal switch

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your gas dryer.
