Question and Answers


flame reaching bulkhead in dryer 110.76904692


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears

I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is trouble with the dryer.

Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore model number 110.76904692.

 In helping with your dryer.  The first thing to let everyone know is that they must first check there lint screen.  Pull it out and make sure the vent the screen goes into is not plugged.   Next check the vent area where it goes outside the house.   A dryer has to have a free movement of air to prevent heating problems and fire hazzards.

 Sorry to hear about the flame going wild.  I would take a look at the coils on the valve right beside the ignitor that shoots out the flames.   The coils are what designates the power of the flame.  It is part of the gas valve but I believe all you will need is the pair of coils and they come in a kit together.

Why won't our gas dryer model 110.76902692 dry the clothes?


Here are some troubleshooting tips:

  • Make sure that the gas cut-off valve is fully open and that the dryer has an adequate gas supply provided to the dryer.
  • Check the lint screen. Make sure that it is cleaned before every cycle. Wash the lint screen thoroughly with water and a nylon brush. Let is dry completely and put it back in the housing.
  • Check the vent duct system to the outside of the home for clogs or restrictions. Check the flexible vent hose on the back of the dryer for kinks or clogs.
  • Check to see if the dryer is heating. If not, I recommend that you unplug the dryer and remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the first image below. Plug the dryer back in and see if the igniter is glowing. If it is not glowing, I recommend unplugging the dryer and checking the thermal fuse for continuity. The location of the thermal fuse is shown in the second image. To check this component (with the dryer unplugged), remove one wire and measure the resistance across the leads of the fuse with a volt/ohm meter. You should measure near zero ohms. If you measure infinite resistance then the fuse is blown and will need to be replaced. If the thermal fuse is okay, you can check the operating thermostat, the high limit thermostat and the flame sensor in the same manner. (Your model of dryer will not have the thermal cut-off shown in the image.) If any of these components are open (measure infinite resistance) then they will need to be replaced. You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website if necessary.
  • The third image shows the theory of operation for the gas valve assembly. Understanding this theory is essential when diagnosing a heating failure. If you are able to check the igniter and the gas valve coils, you may be able to determine the cause of your failure if the dryer is not heating. If the dryer heats once and then will not reignite even though the igniter is glowing, then you will likely need to replace the gas valve coils. There is a low priced kit that has both gas valve coils for this model of dryer. The part number for the gas valve coil kit is 279834. This kit is much less expensive than buying the coils separately.
These tips may help you determine the cause of the failure in your dryer. If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.
