I know that it can be very frustrating to have problems with your dryer. The start button can be a fairly easy part to replace. First, turn the power off to the dryer. Then use a putty knife and the instructions below to access the console. Once the console is opened, pull the knob off the push to start switch. Next, tip the console up and locate the lock tab for the switch. Once the tab is lifted, rotate the switch to remove it. Before removing, the wires install the new switch. Then transfer the wires one at a time. After the new switch is installed, reassemble the dryer. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, just click on this link to schedule service: Sears Home Services . I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

When your washer or dryer quit working it can be a hassle to get the laundry done. I was able to find a couple links that will give you great information regarding the igniter not glowing for your gas dryer. I attached the links below. I hope this helps.

The first step in troubleshooting this problem is to determine whether the igniter is glowing when the dryer is running in the heated cycle. You may be able to see the glow of that igniter if you run the dryer with your laundry room light off. If not, then you will probably need to remove that bottom front service panel as shown in the third image to check that issue. Be careful when running the dryer with that bottom service panel removed. Do not make contact with any live wires or components when conducting that test. As soon as you determine whether the igniter is glowing, I recommend that you unplug the dryer to disconnect electrical power. If that igniter is glowing then that circuit that is traced in red on the first image below is okay. The theory of operation for that gas burner system is shown in the second image. If the igniter is fading off to initiate the lighting sequence but the burner does not ignite, then you will need to replace the gas valve coils (kit part 279834). You can order that gas valve coil kit from this page: Gas Valve Coil Kit for Kenmore Dryer 110.74996300 . Here is a brief repair video that shows how to replace those gas valve coils: Dryer Gas Valve Coil Replacement .

If that igniter is not glowing at all when the dryer is running in a heated cycle, I recommend that you unplug the dryer and check the thermal fuse. That component is shown in the third image. Here is a link for a repair video that shows how to test that component: Thermal Fuse Testing . If that thermal fuse is blown, it will need to be replaced. Be sure that you check that exhaust vent duct path as shown in the video if that thermal fuse was blown. Here is a link for the thermal fuse replacement part: Thermal Fuse for Kenmore Dryer 110.74996300 . Be sure that the dryer is unplugged when you access and replace that fuse.

If the thermal fuse is okay, you could have a bad heater relay, a failed control board, an open high limit thermostat, a bad flame sensor, a failed igniter, a bad motor switch or a wiring failure in that circuit. Reply with additional details if you need more help diagnosing and repairing this heating failure in your dryer.

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 .

Q:

Why does my Kenmore dryer model number 110.74996300 stop running after releasing the start button?

A:

Why does my Kenmore dryer model number 110.74996300 stop running after releasing the start button?

Sounds like you may be having an internal problem with your control board. Here's a list of possible causes your dryer will stop running after releasing the start button:

  • Failed EVENHEAT control board.
  • Failed motor relay.
  • Open or shorted thermistor or thermistor circuit.
  • Loose wire connection on the start sense circuit to control board.

If this does not seem to help the problem, I would suggest scheduling service at 1-800-424-2047 to have a technician diagnose and repair your dryer.
