Question and Answers

Q:

I have a Kenmore Elite Dryer model # 11073954101 it runs but doesn't heat. I just checked the the Thermal fuse for continuity and its good.

A:

Thanks for contacting manage my life about your dryer model 11073954101, sorry you are having a problem, I will be glad to assist you. When a gas dryer does not heat at all you can be sure the burner assembly is not coming on and that is the first thing to inspect.  The burner assembly has two wires leading to it and you should first determine if the two leads have 120 volts ac to them. If they do and no heat comes on then suspect a bad igniter, look at it closely for a break. If there is no power to the burner assembly expect to find the high limit thermostat open. Just check continuity it will either be open or closed.  These are the most common failures; I have attached a wiring diagram for your use in testing the heat circuit. This will help you determine the cause of your heating issue. Should by chance you have heat but no drying clean your vent from dryer to outside your home. Here is a link to Sears Home services if you need a technician to come and diagnose the problem.  Ron H.

Q:

Kenmore elite gas dryer ignites but will not heat clothes. Model 11073954101

A:

Thanks for contacting mange my life about your dryer model 11073954101; sorry you are having a problem, I will be glad to assist you. Based on the description of the problem I believe that the issue may not be the dryer but instead you're venting. If the dryer heats but clothes do not dry, the problem almost all the time is poor air flow. You can do a simple test to determine if your vent is restricted.   Pull the dryer away from the wall  and remove the vent hose from the back of the dryer, now set the dryer on high heat add a load of clothes and allow normal dry time. (Be prepared to deal with heat and lint entering the room) If the clothes do dry properly, then the vent is the issue not the dryer. Clean the vent hose, vent pipe all the way to the outside of the home. If you cannot access to clean call for help at 1_800-469-4663 and ask for duct cleaning in your area. You description is a classic indication of a venting issue so give this a try. If you need additional help reply with more 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.

gas dryer kenmore elite mod 110 73954101 will run but will not heat

A:

I can see why you would be questioning the parts on your Kenmore dryer v/s the sticker that was found on your dryer. According to the model number this is a gas dryer and has a burner assembly, not the parts you are describing. Just click on reply below where you can provide the additional information like what problems you are having with the dryer. An expert will be along to further assist you.

Make sure that the gas supply cut-off valve for the dryer is fully open and that you have an adequate gas supply provided to the dryer.

I provided the wiring diagram for your gas dryer in the first image below. The second image shows the theory of operation for the gas valve assembly. I recommend that you start the dryer in a heated cycle and see if that igniter glows and then fades off as described in the second image. If that igniter glows then the heater relay and the other components in that heating circuit are apparently okay. If that igniter is glowing then fading off but the burner will not ignite then you probably have weak gas valve coils (part 279834). Here is a link for that part: Gas Valve Coils for Kenmore Elite Gas Dryer 110.73954101 . Be sure that you unplug the dryer and shut off the gas supply before accessing internal components. Here is a video that shows how to replace those gas valve coils: Dryer Gas Valve Coil Replacement . NOTE: A problem with the gas supply could also cause those symptoms. Be sure that you check that gas supply before replacing the coils.

If igniter is not glowing, then I recommend that you check that thermal fuse (with the dryer unplugged ). Here is a video that shows how to check that thermal fuse using a volt/ohm meter: Thermal Fuse Testing . That thermal fuse is on the blower housing. If that component is okay, then you can check the high limit thermostat. You can check the flame sensor and the igniter for continuity. If all of those components are okay, then you may have a bad heater relay, a failed thermistor (temperature sensor) or a bad control board. You can unplug the dryer and bypass that heater relay by connecting the solid red wires together and taping that connection with electrical tape (to prevent the wires from shorting to the metal cabinet). If you bypass that heater relay and the igniter glows properly then I recommend that you check the resistance of the thermistor circuit. If the thermistor circuit is okay then you will probably need to replace that heater relay.

These tips should help you with that heating failure in your dryer. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.
