The key to this problem is to know what the ignitor is doing.

There is a small square plug on the front panel so you can get a look at the ignitor.

If the igniter comes on then forget about the thermostats and timer since if the ignitor comes on and glows those parts or okay.

If the ignitor glows brightly and then goes off with a click of the radiant sensor with no flame then the gas coils or valve is the problem.

The gas valve 279923 is expensive at $165 dollars.

The coils are best bought as a 279834 kit. The kit will sale for about $25 dollars for both coils.

Thanks a lot for the info Fred! I had often wondered what was under that plug... I pulled it off and started the dryer. Naturally, it ran and dried flawlessly. After that load, I ran it again and watched the ignitor come on, but no gas flame. After a few seconds, the ignitor went off. Do you think it would be worth it for me to just get the coil kit, as the cost is relatively low?

A:

The coil kit is a good bet. It is usually not cost effective to replce the valve but $25 dollars for the coil is resonable exspecially since it is a do-it-yourself. Remember to unplug the dryer first. The image below may help you with this project.

Q:

Where is fuse/reset breaker on Kenmore Gas Dryer model 11077732794

A:

The fuse & breaker your owner’s manual is referring to is actually the breakers or fuses for your house. Older homes had fuses for breakers. The dryer is gas & is running so we know the supply voltage from your house is ok. Diagnosing this type of symptom requires using a multimeter. We need to access the front & rear or the dryer to start checking suspect components, starting in the back first. I have provided the wiring diagram outlining the path of voltage through the heating circuit of the dryer in the image below. If you find the hi limit or thermal fuse with open continuity be sure to check for a blocked exhaust vent.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.

Q:

Why is my Kenmore gas dryer not heating?

A:

What your describing sounds like weak gas valve coils or poor exhaust venting. If the igniter comes on & then goes off without lighting the burner you will need to replace the gas valve coils part number 279834. If the burner comes on but does not stay on long enough I suspect poor exhaust venting. You need to clean the venting out. Other possibilities; gas valve & wiring harness.
