The troubleshooting I gave in this answer covers the first things you will need to check on your dryer. Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.

Q:

when the dryer was on you could see the flame on the bottom but now the flame does not go on. I am assuming it is the ignitor switch. how do i replace it

A:

We rely so much on our dryers. It can disrupt household routine when it malfunctions. I found two links that may help diagnose the problem for your dryer. The second link covers your dryer situation, the first link helps with diagnosis. These should get you started while you wait for the expert. Hope you can do more than air dry soon.

It may be the igniter but when a gas dryer suddenly stops heating the first thing to check is the thermal fuse.

If the igniter is glowing but there is no flame then likely the gas coils or valve is at fault.

The thermal fuse is located in the back of the dryer behind the rear panel on the exhaust. See the images below for help with this. Remember to unplug the dryer before removing the panel.

The thermal fuse is best checked for continuity with a volt/ohm meter. If you have no meter then the fuse can be checked a second way. You can remove the two wires and join them together with a small piece of insulated wire. With the fuse bypassed carefully plug the dryer in and see if it will run and heat.

If not the thermal fuse then next check the igniter. You will need a meter to check the igniter. It can not be bypassed.

I hope this information is helpful to you. You can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.

A:

one thing i did check was the thermostat heater. it took a while to find a good connection where the Violet wires connect. it seemed to be faulty, but like i said the dryer still runs normal but no heat after i rechecked the wires and saw the ignotor glow but after the first 10 min. or so it just blows cold air and then putting a new load in just cold air blows.

A:

Your symptoms point to failed gas valve coils. There is an observation port on the lower left side of your front panel under the door. Pull the plug on that port and observe the burner assembly when the dryer is running and not heating. It is likely that you will see the igniter glowing and then cycling off. It will likely repeat this process continuously. The theory of operation for the gas valve assembly is shown in the first image below. If the igniter is functioning in this manner, then your likely failure is the gas valve coils. Weak coils will normally be strong enough to open the gas valves when from a cold start. This is likely why the dryer initially heats. After the coils heat up, they are likely too weak to open the gas valves to light the burner.

You can order a kit that has both gas valve coils for a cheaper price them buying them separately. The part number for the kit is 279834. You can order this kit from the Sears PartsDirect website.

The second image below shows how to open the cabinet to access the gas valve coils in this type of dryer. Be sure that you unplug the dryer and shut off the gas supply before beginning this procedure. The third image shows how to change the gas valve coils.

This information should help you repair the dryer. If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

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 .
