Question and Answers

Q:

Can you help me my Kenmore dryer model 110.74882401?

A:

Based on your symptoms, it is likely that the gas valve coils are weak and will need to be replaced. The image below shows the theory of operation for the gas burner assembly. Since the igniter is glowing and the burner initially ignites, the electrical circuit is apparently okay. It is likely that the gas valve coils are strong enough to open the gas valves for the first ignition from a cold start but as they heat up, they are not strong enough to keep the gas valves open or initiate a subsequent ignition.

If you are able to safely replace the gas valve coils, you may be able to fix this dryer problem yourself. You can order a lower priced gas valve kit (part 279834) from the Sears PartsDirect website. Unplug the dryer and shut off the gas supply before access the burner assembly and replacing the coils.

Once you replace the gas valve coils, the dryer should heat properly. If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

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 .

Q:

Can you help me troubleshoot my Kenmore dryer model 110.74882401 that runs but will not heat?

A:

I will need additional details indicating if the glow bar igniter is glowing red or not. If it's glowing red and fading back off without any burner ignition the failure is likely the magnetic solenoid coils which are mounted on top of the gas valve.

If the ignitor is not glowing could indicate one of follow component failures:

  • Timer
  • Thermal fuse
  • operating thermostat
  • hi-limit thermostat
  • flame sensor
  • ignitor
  • motor centrifugal switch
It will require testing each of these components with a volt/ohm meter for continuity.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.

I also added a link below with additional information and theory of operation.

Why won’t the igniter glow on my gas dryer?

Can you help me troubleshoot my Kenmore dryer model 110.74882401 that runs but will not heat?

A:

There should be an inspection area under the front of the unit (likely just a gap above the floor). Start it up and then get on the ground and look inside under the drum area to the burner area (probably off to the right toward the back). Within 10-15 seconds, you should see a glow from the gas ignitor. If it does not glow at all it is possible that your ignitor is bad. Inspect it for burnt spots (white ash) or cracks. This is the cheapest thing to try first. If it glows and doesn't ignite then you are not getting gas flow which could be the gas selenoids that sit on top of the gas valves (also easy to change but a little more expensive). All this will be most easily accomplished by taking the top off, face off, and drum out (probably only 6-8 screws). Make sure that you make note of the belt orientation on the idler so that you can reinstall it without excess frustration. There are also assembly diagrams available on the internet (not wiring diagrams). Good luck.
