First thing for safety and concerns to keep dryer running well is to check the lint screen and vent of air flow going out of the house.   If clogged up it could cause heating problems on any dryer.
 
To prevent a Blocked Vent Hood, once a year: 
 
1.  Clean any lint blockage from the exhaust vent hood.
2.  Make sure the vent hood flappers move freely.
3.  Check for screen/grate openings that allow bird or rodent nests.
4.  Replace exhaust vent hood if damaged.
5.  Check for good air flow while running the dryer.
Note: Poor airflow or decreased airflow indicates further vent system cleaning is needed.

Please "RESUBMIT YOUR QUESTIONS IF THERE IS ANY OTHER PROBLEMS".
 
Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with your future questions and repairs.  Thank you for choosing Sears and using our SearsPartsDirect.com.

Q:

Why does my Kenmore Dryer lose heat after about five minutes?

A:

Dryers share most of the same type malfunctions. We all hope the fix is simple. A Dryer is definitely a handy appliance we all love to use. I can understand how frustrating it may be when its malfunctioning. I was able to find some information on Manage my life which I have posted below that can be very helpful. Hope it helps!

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The first thing to check is to make sure the venting system does not have any restrictions, blockages or kinks. A restriction in the venting system will cause the flame/burner to shut off and stay off until the high limit thermostat cools and resets.

If the venting system is clean and has no restrictions the most likely failure is the solenoid coils.

There is a small square plastic inspection cover located under the door that can be pried out for observing the glow bar igniter and burner operation.

Pry the inspection cover off and start the dryer. Pull up a chair and monitor the glow bar operation for at least 10-15 minutes or until you will find the glow bar glowing red and then fading off without any burner ignition. If you find the glow bar igniter glowing red and fading off without burner ignition, replace both solenoid coils mounted on top of the gas valve assembly. The solenoid coil kit is part #279834 which can be ordered from Sears PartsDirect

I added a couple of images below showing how to remove the front panel and how to replace the solenoid coils. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing your dryer.

Hello Joey, I have a dryer with same model number. I checked coils. They are good. My problem is: it is start heating at first time until vent temp gets 160F. At this point I expect it to come back after it is lost 25F. But my dryer temp. drop down to room temp. still does not heat up. I checked cycling thermostat , high limit and coils. Seems to me okay. What else can be problem. Thanks, Emre

emere: You will need to pry off the inspection cover located below the dryer door and then start the dryer and monitor the glow bar igniter operation. The burner should ignite each and every time the igniter glows and then fade off. If you find the igniter glowing and then fading off without burner ignition, replace both solenoid coils on the gas valve. Also, make sure there are no kinks or restrictions in the vent hose or vent system. A pinched or restricted vent system can cause the burner to stay off until the high limit resets.

Hi,

Thank you for your question and for letting me assist you with your repair.

On a gas dryer if you have jumper the fuse and it still lost the flame, Here is the deal.
Power is placed on the valve and the circuit is through the radiant sensor to the igniter which glows and heats to 2200 degrees.

The radiant sensor open and stops the voltage to the igniter, glowing white hot.
The voltage then goes across the coils and the assist and main open letting gas hit the still glowing igniter and there is then flame until the operating thermostat open and stops the voltage to the valve. When the thermostat cools it closes and voltage is back to the valve and the cycles starts once more.
If the flame dies out there could be a faulty hi limit thermostat or faulty coils. Check the line to the dryer and make sure it is not pinched off or something silly like that. If you jumped the fuse once jump the hi-limit and test it that way. The hi-limit is on the bottom of the upright flame tube.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance please include more details in a reply to this entry below.
Thank you for using Manage My Life.
