It can be very frustrating when your dryer begins to malfunction and not heat properly. I did some research and provided a link to a similar question and answer on our site. i hope this will shed a little more light on the issue until the Expert responds to your question in more detail within 24 to 48 hours.

The problem is most likely with the gas coils or gas valve since it does heat the one time. If a gas dryer heats at all then the thermal fuse is likely okay. The key to the problem is knowing what the ignitor is doing. There is a small square plug on the left side of the front panel. You can pry this out and visually check if the ignitor continues to glow and click off with no flame. A gas valve can work a cycle or two then stop working. If the ignitor continues to glow and click off with no flame then the gas valve or coils are likely the problem. If can be difficult to determine which is bad since the dryer will heat once. Pull the plug and check what the ignitor is doing and reply with additional details for further assistance.

I realize this is an old conversation, but I'm hoping that someone can still help. My dryer is having the same problem as the original poster. I've checked all relevant sensors, thermostat, and valve coils for continuity or resistance and they all seem to be fine. I'm going to check the coils again, though, because I had used an analog multimeter, and I was told that digital is more accurate. The igniter looks fine: a flame is established when I start a cycle; the flame stays on for a few minutes and then turns off; the igniter then glows and clicks off with no flame, and this keeps happening every couple minutes; if I leave the dryer alone for a few hours and then start another cycle, a flame will ignite the first time, then turn off, and the glowing and clicking off cycle happens all over again.

Q:

Intermittent natural gas smell from my gas dryer exhaust port Model No 110.76862501

A:

Thank you for your question.  Intermittent problems can be difficult to pin down.  I will be glad to assist you in checking this problem on your Kenmore 110.76862501 Gas Dryer.  Most gas leaks would not be intermittent.  My first thought is the flame is not adjusted properly and is not buring all the gas.  Have any new parts been recently replaced?  Make sure the vent hose is straight with no kinks or air flow restrictions.  Soapy water can be used to check the connections for small leaks.  Bubble Leak or water with dish soap can be spread around the seals.  A leak should cause bubbles to form.   The images below show how to raise the top panel and remove the front panel to access the gas valve.  If you find no leak on the connections then another possibility is the ignitor is not lighting the gas right away.  If the ignitor is weak or out of position then it may be late in igniting the gas.  This may be the gas you are smelling.   I hope this helps.  Remember to unplug the dryer first before removing the front panel.

The dryer is about 7-1/2 years old. My wife called me at work and told me that she could smell gas from our dryer vent outside the house. I told her to turn it off. When I got home I turned the dryer on and all was well, no gas smell and the air froon the exhaust was hot. We let it run for a few minutes and stopped it and opened the dryer door to smell inside and it was fine. So I turned it back on and walked outside and stuck my hand down by the exhaust vent and it was hot. After a minutew or so we could smell the natural gas smell. I went outside and put my hand down by the vent and it was still hot but I could smell the natural gas smell so I turned the dryer off. I took the time to use my leaf blower to blow out the exhaust line and quite a bit of lint came out. Would that have anything to do with the natural gas smell?

A:

A lint build up will restrict the air flow which can then cause the flame to become lazy and not burn properly. As the flame becomes more yellow and can spread out. Usually when it spreads out it cycles off the hi-limit thermostat. A restricted vent can cause this problem though most of the time a poor vent just leads to poor drying. Cleaning the vent out likely solved this problem. A gas valve proble will show up even when the dryer is not being run so the restricted vent most likely was your problem. Let me know if the smell returns.

I know that it can be very difficult to have issues with your dryer. In most cases this is a problem with the leak limiter. Remove the leak limiter cap with the plastic stem, and replace it with the new cap. You will need to for the burner to open. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
