Hello Pamela. I am sorry to hear about this problem that you are having with your dryer.

 

Your symptoms point to weak gas valve coils. Since the dryer occasionally heats up, this indicates that the circuit through the gas valve assembly components is okay.  You may be able to fix the dryer yourself by replacing those gas valve coils. Here is a link for a kit that has both coils: Gas Valve Coil Kit 279834.

 

Unplug the dryer and shut off the gas supply before accessing and replacing internal components. Here is a procedure for replacing the gas valve coils:

 

  1. Unplug the dryer and shut off the gas supply.
  2. Pull the lint screen out of the housing on the top panel of the dryer.
  3. Remove the screws that attach the top panel to the lint screen housing.
  4. Push a putty knife into the gap between the top panel and the front panel of the dryer about 3" in from each side to release locking clips that secure the top panel to the front panel of the dryer. Lift up while releasing those clips. Hinge the top panel up and back after releasing the clips. Prop the top panel against the back wall behind the dryer so that it won't fall down.
  5. Unplug the wire harness that goes to the door switch.
  6. Remove the screws from the inside of the front panel that secure it to the dryer cabinet. The screws are at the top of the front panel.
  7. Release the front panel from the clips that secure it to the dryer frame and set the front panel aside.
  8. Unplug the wires from the valve coils.
  9. Remove the screws from the bracket that holds the gas valve coils in place.
  10. Pull the bracket off and remove the existing gas valve coils. 
  11. Replace the gas valve coils and reverse the above process for reassembly.

A model number would be helpful but from the description you give I suspect the heating element is shorted to ground.

To find a short can be a difficult project. One way to approach the problem is to disconnect various parts (while the dryer is unplugged) and see if the short still happens when the dryer is plugged in.

You might start with removing one of the wires on the control thermostat located on the blower housing. With the dryer unplugged try removing the wire from the control thermostat and tape it out of the way so it doesn't touch anything.

If the short still happens then the problem might be with the timer.

If the short doesn't happen then likely the element is the problem.

I hope this helps. You can reply with any additional details or questions dor further assistance.

Would this be true even if all I'm doing is plugging the dryer in to the electric socket? I'm not turning the dryer on at all, which led me to think it could be a short in the initial wiring to the dryer. I'll look into what you said.

I should also mention that around last summer I replaced the heating element in the dryer. It's worked fine since then.

If all your're doing is plugging the unit in then I'd suggest you start by taking a look at the terminal block while the dryer is unplugged. A wire may have come loose and is causing the short. Even the power cord can be shorted. Let me know what you see at the terminal block.

A:

I assume the terminal block is where the power cord attaches to the dryer. I did that the other day. The cover plate was black over top of one of the connections. After unplugging the unit I took off the cover plate and disconnected the wires. It was damp inside. I blew a shop-vac on it for around an hour and also on the wires themselves, which had a bit of lint on them, as well. After all this I reconnected and then plugged everything back in, flipped the circuit and it worked. There was a tiny spark at first - likely some residual liquid that hadn't dried, but the power stayed on. I put a few shirts inside and ran it for around 30 minutes. Seemed to work fine. While I'm not confident enough in it to leave it plugged in when not in use, I am confident enough to say this problem is fixed. Thank you for your input.

Kenmore dryer model # 110-77632600 only 5 years old will not produce heat. Removed ignitor - no breakage, looks solid. Can ignitor look good and still be bad? What else could be the problem? Any tips?

A:

First disconnect electrical power to the dryer. Pull the unit out in order to gain access to the rear panel. Remove the screws securing the rear panel in place & remove the rear panel. You will see the thermal fuse on the blower housing & the thermal cut off on the top of the heater box. Use a volt/ohm meter to check for 0 resistance across the 2 terminals. The one that shows open will need to be replaced. Be sure to check your exhaust venting for restrictions. If both check OK, you will need to check the operating & hi limit thermostats next. Both should read 0 resistance also. If everything checks OK in the back then you will need to reassemble the rear panel & now gain access from the front of the dryer. First pull out the lint screen & remove the 2 screws going down through the top panel. Lift the top panel up by pulling the top panel towards the front far enough to clear the front clips. Unplug the door switch from the wiring harness. Remove the 2 screws securing the front to each side panel. Lift the front panel up just far enough to disconnect from the lower clips. You will now have access to the flame sensor, gas valve coils & igniter. The flame sensor should read 0 resistance. The igniter 40 ohms, holding coil 1365 ohms, main coil 1220 ohms, assist coil 560 ohms. After replacing failed component reassemble in reverse order. I have posted a few images below to aid the repair. Once you determine what the problem is you can order the parts from the link below. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.
