A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the dryer not heating with flame not staying lit.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore dryer model number11079812990.

First thing for safety and concerns to keep dryer running well is to check the lint screen and vent of air flow going out of the house.   If clogged up it could cause heating problems on any dryer.
 
To prevent a Blocked Vent Hood, once a year: 
 
1.  Clean any lint blockage from the exhaust vent hood.
2.  Make sure the vent hood flappers move freely.
3.  Check for screen/grate openings that allow bird or rodent nests.
4.  Replace exhaust vent hood if damaged.
5.  Check for good air flow while running the dryer.
Note: Poor airflow or decreased airflow indicates further vent system cleaning is needed.
Sounds like an ignitor problem but wise to check all the items below with a meter.
 
All items can be checked with a volt meter for continuity.
 
When a gas dryer isn't heating there are a few things to look at.
 
In the burner system you have
 
1.  The ignitor key number 4 on burner page
 
2.  The pair of coils 13 & 14 on burner page
 
Behind the blower there is
 
3.  The thermistor key number 41 on blower page
 
4.  The thermal fuse  key number 39 on blower page.

I havethe location of the ignitor glow bar on the link below.   It is on the bottom left corner of the dryer.   When you are looking at that then also look at the 2 coils to make sure there is no burn or chip marks.

The ignitor is key number 64 on the lower left hand corner of the picture.   The 2 coils are #72 and 73.

I would take an ohmmeter and use it on the door switch first just to make sure.

There are 3 main possibilites to check after the lid switch.   It could be the motor, it could be the timer, it could be the electronic control chip.    I have a picture to click on at the link below.  The timer is key number 3 and the electronic control chip is key number 39.   You can take a meter and check it all out for continuity.
