Question and Answers

Q:

Not heating!!! 11074212200 Kenmore Dryer

A:

Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about your Kenmore Gas Dryer. I am so sorry to hear it is not heating. I know how quickly laundry piles up when the dryer isn’t working. I will be happy to help you with this.

 

It looks like you have already covered the first three steps in diagnosing the problem, the igniter, the coils and the fuses. When you checked the fuses, I want to make sure you checked the two fuses in the breaker box, in addition to the thermal fuse in the dryer.

 

I recommend checking the safety devices next. There are two thermostats and a high limit cutoff. If the dryer overheated, the high limit cutoff works like a fuse to keep the dryer from catching fire. If that has been tripped, it will need to be replaced. Normally you can tell if it needs replacing simply by looking at it. It is located on the side of the heater box. When you replace the high limit cutoff, the thermostat on the heater box comes with it. They should always be replaced together. I have included the link to order the set.

I recommend you also check the thermostat on the blower assembly. I have included that link for you also.

If the thermal cutoff or a thermostat needs to be replaced, then I recommend you thoroughly clean out the vent system of the dryer. A dryer can overheat because there is insufficient air flow. Be sure to clean the lint screen, the lint trap, the inside of the cabinet, the tubing from the back of the dryer to the wall and the outside vent cover. I have included the link for a lint brush that will help keep the lint from building up again. I recommend you do a thorough cleaning of the vent system at least once a year.

Since you have already replaced the coils, if the above parts are okay, then the next part to check would be the gas valve itself. I have included that link for you also.

How do I check the Gas valve? Like I said earlier I check all the fuses in the dryer, I've even check the flame sensor and all the fuse show continuity.

 Hi,

Thanks for contacting  ManageMyLife. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance.

Linda covered the circuit real well,  but as far as checking the gas valve the correct way is the use a manometer and ohm out the coils on the gas valve.  The operation is this in a nut shell,

Gas is supplied to the valve and when the dryer calls for heat the voltage is flowing across the radiant sensor to the igniter and the igniter glows.

One valve of the gas valve opens and the radiant sensor shuts the voltage off to the igniter.  The still white hot glowing igniter then ignites the 2nd valve gas, which just opened.  When the radiant sensor opens up and stops the igniter from glowing there is a loud clicking sound.  If you are not hearing this clicking sound the radiant sensor is staying closed and the igniter will not go off but keep on glowing and there will be no gas to ignite from the valve.  Below is the operation of the valve and the components in the circuit.    

To see the images you will need to log into managemylife.  

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

Q:

my kenmore dryer heats when on timed dry but dose not heat on auto dry

A:

Hello Joe. Since the dryer heats on the timed dry cycle, those components that you listed are probably okay. The wiring diagram shown in the image below has the heating circuit traced in red. That circuit does not change based on the timed or auto cycle. In the auto cycle, the timer is advanced through the orange wire that is traced. In the timed, cycle the neutral is applied to the timer motor through that white/black wire that is traced in blue. Your heating failure in that auto cycle could be caused by a timer switch problem or a wiring failure involving that orange wire. I recommend that you unplug the dryer and check that orange wire that you should find connected to the gas burner assembly. If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

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 .

I'm not sure any parts need replacing yet because there's a few more details needed.

The ignitor (red light start) is the key.

I assume the flame never comes back on but you don't mention what the ignitor is doing.

If you turn the dryer off and let it sit awhile will the flame still come back for at least 2 minutes?

If the ignitor continues to glow off and on but there is no flame after the first 2 minutes then the problem is with the coils or valve.

If the ignitor doesn't continue to cycle on and off then one of the thermostats might be the cause.

The ignitor, coils and valve can all be a do-it-yourself project.

You can reply with any additional details for further assistance and instruction on how to resolve this problem.
