Q:

Drying heating 11077761600 Kenmore Residential dryer

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your dryer is not heating. I did look into the model number you have provided and I have found information to assist you.
Since you have already replaced the iginter then that will not be the issue. I did look into your unit and I did find that the gas valve coils could be going bad. 

The gas burner assembly uses solenoid coils in a circuit with the flame sensor to safely ignite the burner. When the dryer starts a heated cycle, the circuit through those components is energized. The igniter glows until it reaches the proper temperature to ignite the gas, at which point the flame sensor trips open and the current flowing through that circuit is diverted to the gas valve coils so the gas valves open, and the burner lights and continues to burn. If the solenoid coils on the gas valves fail, the gas valves won't open for ignition. If the gas valve coils are weak, the burner lights during the initial ignition sequence from a cold start but it fails to light the burner on subsequent ignition attempts. In this situation, replace the valve coils. 

Another part that goes before the coils would be the radiant sensor. 

Thie radiant sensor for a gas-heated dryer senses the air temperature in the drum and signals the coils to charge and the igniter to spark when the temperature falls too low.

When installing the replacement radiant sensor, be careful not to touch the igniter with your bare hands. Oils from your skin can shorten the working life of the igniter.

I would recommend testing both of these parts to determine which ones to replace. I would check the sensor first and then the valves.  

Let me know if this helps.

Q:

dryer not drying 11077761600 Kenmore Residential dryer

A:

Thank You for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com. I do apologize for the delay in answering your question.


I know it can be irritating when the dryer stops working.

Clothes not dry:
The most common reason that clothes are not completely dry at the end of the cycle is a venting issue. Your dryer must have a clear vent to the outside without any restrictions. When restrictions or blockage occur the air flow through the dryer is slowed down and the heating controls will short cycle shutting off the heat prematurely resulting in damp clothes at end of cycle. Here is a good test; on back of the dryer, remove the vent hose completely. (There will be lint and heat in the room so be prepared for this) Run a normal load of clothes, if this time the clothes were dried properly you will know the vent is a problem and your venting system needs a good cleaning or replacing. 

Dryer Not Heating:
First, I recommend first checking for a tripped breaker, especially if there have been problems, with the power supply. There is not a thermal fuse inside this dryer. If the breakers are ok, then the voltage will need to be checked at the dryer terminal block, located behind the unit. Making voltage checks can be dangerous and unless you are very confident in your repair skills and have a meter, a technician will be needed. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website:

Thank you. I disconnected the vent line and it was fairly clean. I also ran the dryer for a few and I did have reasonable flow but it was cool. It did not seem to have any heat content. It is possible that I did not let it run long enough but .... Please get back to me. Thanks again.

The temperature should be about 130 degrees coming out of the vent in the back. I would suggest letting it run for 5 minutes if there is still no heat then you will need to check the items I mentioned above for a heating issue.

Q:

Kenmore Dryer Makes Squaling Sound

A:

Thank you for choosing ManageMyLife.com. I understand how frustrating it can be when the dryer makes unusual sounds. The most common cause for this sound are worn belts, pulleys or rollers. I have included a link to our PartsDirect page where you can purchase the part you need to complete your repair. Just click the blue link below to be taken to the page.

The dryer repair kit will normally fix the sound. However, it is possible that the the squeaking can also be caused by a worn drum seal or drum bearings. I have included instructions on the image below on how to access your inner components.

The instructions for removing the console do not work for my dryer, I had to remove four screws from the back, then the console came up attached with the entire dryer top. Anyway, I took the dryer apart, cleaned all the lint, spun the drum by hand a few times, then decided to connect the power and try it. The noise was gone! So I figured cleaning it and/or shaking things up took care off the issue. I put the unit back together and did a load of laundry! But.....for the second load, the squealing returned, and I can't get rid of it, took my wet clothes to the laundromat. Does the above info change your suggestion to buy/install the repair kit? And if I buy the kit, is it easy to install? Does it come with step by step instructions?
