Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I would not be able to suggest or recommend ordering any parts until you diagnose the cause of the failure. There are several components that make up the heating circuit; the timer, thermal fuse, operating thermostat, high limit thermostat, flame sensor, igniter and gas valve assembly.  

Generally speaking, when a component fails and a gas dryer quits heating, it does not make a loud pop sound. Based on your symptom, the dryer circuits will need to be visually inspected for any signs of a blown or shorted component. Based on your details, if it made a loud pop sound, you should be able to find what component may have shorted or failed. 

There is a removable panel located below the dryer door. You can remove the lower access panel and inspect the wiring and components for any signs of blackened or darken components or wires. I added image below to reference the wiring diagram, how to remove the lower access panel and how to remove the left and right end cap covers. Once the two control panel end caps have been removed, remove the screw at the bottom of each end cap. Slide the control panel forwards and lift it up and hinge over the rear panel to inspect the components inside the console. There is also a wiring diagram so that you can see which components are in the heating circuit. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the lower access panel.

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.
