Question and Answers

Q:

Dryer not heating 11073034101

A:

Not drying may be caused by several components and testing will be needed. The very first thing to determine is this, is there any heat being produced at all? Does the dryer seem hot but clothes just don’t completely dry? If the answer to either of the two questions is yes, then you should check your venting to the outside from the dryer. If the vent or vent hose on back of the dryer is restricted the dryer will not dry clothes. In this situation the vent would need cleaning. _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 product_If there is no heat at all then testing power to the burner assembly needs to be the first thing you do. There are two wires that feed power to the burner assembly a black and a blue. With a volt/ohm meter check the two wires for 120 volts ac., with dryer running set on high heat. If there is proper voltage to the burner assembly then the issue will be the igniter (most common failure) the flame sensor or the gas valves. If there is no voltage to the burner assembly you will need to trace the circuit that supplies power to the burner assembly. Components would be the thermostats (3) and thermal fuse (1). I have attached a wiring diagram for you convenience below. I hope this helps, if you need additional help please 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.  Ron H.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The igniter should never come on if the timer is in the "OFF" position. In order for the igniter to come on, the timer must close contacts BK and R in order to provide the voltage supply to the igniter. Also, the motor centrifugal switch 5M and 6M would have to be stuck or weld closed in order to provide the neutral supply to the igniter. 

In order for the burner to stay on, the high limit must remain closed. If there is restriction in the vent system, the flame will not be drawn back properly and the high limit thermostat will open and break the voltage supply from the gas valve and the burner will shut off. If the high limit thermostat becomes weak due to a restricted vent system, it may be opening prematurely.  For testing purposes only: Try disconnecting the vent hose from the back of the dryer and place some damp clothes in the dryer and then see how long the burner stays on. The operating thermostat should keep the burner on until it reaches operating temperature of 140-150 degrees when measuring the exhaust temperature with a thermometer.

I added an image of the wiring diagram if needed. 

Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
