Thanks for contacting manage my life about your dryer model 110.75942401, I will be glad to assist you. The lower access panel is hinged on the bottom and has spring clips at the top. You will need to use a flat blade like a putty knife to release the spring clips. There are two clips one on each side about 3 inches from the sides under the door frame. Place the flat blade between the door frame and the lower access panel on the clip and press in and down. This will release the lower panel, repeat same on opposite side and then the panel will hinge down for access. I have attached an image below that shows the clip springs # 46. I hope this helps, if you need more help please 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.

The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the image below with the circuit through the ignitor traced in red. I recommend that you unplug the dryer and check the thermal fuse first. I provided a drawing in the second image below that shows the location of that thermal fuse and how to remove the lower front access panel on the dryer. You will probably need to remove the lint duct cover as well. I provided a photograph of that process in the 3rd image. Here is a link for a brief repair video that shows how to check that thermal fuse: Thermal Fuse Testing . If that thermal fuse is blown, it will need to be replaced. The part number for that fuse is 3392519. You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. Here is a direct link for that part: Thermal Fuse . NOTE: If that thermal fuse was blown, be sure that you check the exhaust vent duct system to the outside of your home for a clog or restriction as shown in that video.

If that thermal fuse is okay, you can check the radiant sensor (flame sensor) on the oven burner assembly in a similar manner. The 4th image below shows the components in that burner assembly and provides the theory of operation. If that radiant sensor is "open" then the ignitor will not glow.

You could also have an open high-limit thermostat or a bad operating thermostat that would cause this failure. A bad timer could also prevent the ignitor from glowing.

These tips may help you determine the cause of your heating failure in the dryer. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Q:

What could be causing brownish streaks on whites and light colored clothes?

A:

The brown streaks could be caused from worn or missing felt drum seals (key#27 in image)) or from rubbing the grill (key#5 in image) where the heat comes into the drum.

If the drum seals are worn out, clothing can get trapped between the drum and bulkhead (key#54&74) and cause brown or black streaks too.

Look inside the dryer and check to see what type of gap it may have at the rear and front of the drum. Check the heat inlet grill inside the dryer located on the rear wall. If you use a lot of fabric softener it could be sticking and burning onto the grill and rubbing off on the clothes. If the heat intake grill (key#5) is covered with a lot of brown residue clean it off with steel wool or one of those green scouring pads.

I recommend calling a service technician to replace the drum seals if you find them damaged or coming unglued.
