Question and Answers

Q:

My dryer takes more than 2 1/2 hours to dry a single load on high heat.

A:

Thanks for the information about your dryer model 110.73112100; sorry you are having a problem, I will be glad to assist you. Based on your description I believe that the problem is not the dryer but instead your venting that takes the warm moist air out of your home. Here is a simple test you can perform that will determine if indeed the vent is your issue. Access behind the dryer and remove the vent hose or vent pipe from the dryer. You will have the dryer pushed away from the wall and can leave it in that position for this test. Move the vent out of the line of air flow and set the dryer on high heat and put in a load of clothes from the washer. Set the control to a standard setting you normally use and allow it to run the full cycle. If your clothes dry properly this indicates that the venting is clogged and will need to clean the vent or contact Sears Services to arrange cleaning. Your dryer is not malfunctioning, with the vent clogged no air is being moved through the clothing and the heating device short cycles to prevent damage. I hope this helps solve your problem .if you need additional help please reply with more details and I will be happy to respond.

Hello, Thank you for answering. I did what you said and the wall vent was clogged. I cleaned it out. Unfortunately the dryer is still barely heating up. Any more suggestions?

Hi Cindy, did you do the test cycle with vent disconnected? If not you still need to do this and if it dry's properly there is still a clog somewhere to the outside of the house. If it does not dry but there is heat try cleaning the inside part of the duct work including the filter housing. Let me know the results. Ron H.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

First; make sure the gas is turned on to the dryer. You can also check to see if the glow bar ignitor is glowing red or not. Located below the door is a small square plastic inspection cover. Pry the cover off and then make sure you have the timer set for Timed dry and high heat temperature setting and start the dryer. Look through the inspection hole and continue to watch for at least 1 minute. If find the glow bar ignitor glowing red and then fading off without any burner ignition then the solenoid coils on the gas valve will need to be replaced.

If you do not see the glow bar ignitor glowing red then it could have one out of many possible component failures and then it would require a volt/ohm meter to test all the components for continuity connected in the electrical circuit between the timer and ignitor. I added an image below of the circuit traced in red and green. Each one of the components I have circled in red will need to be disconnected and tested for continuity with an Ohm meter. All of the components can be accessed and tested from the rear except the flame sensor (key#27), glow bar ignitor (key#4) or the two solenoid coils (key#13 and 14). NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the back panel and testing the components for continuity.

I recommend starting with the thermal fuse (key#9) which is located on the blower housing. I added a YouTube video showing how to test thermal fuse and one how to access and replace the thermal fuse if you find it faulty.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

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 .
