Hi,

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife.  I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance.

Ok I have some information for you, since the model provided is not listed in the system,  I selected a HE3 dryer at random.  The burner will use 20,000 British thermal unit per hour.  This is the Btu rating.  Most dryers use the same amount of heat.  This will depend on the temperature setting and the air flow through the dryer and on how long the dryer vent is and how many turns (90 degree) it makes.  The average burner is 20,000 to 22,000 Btu. 

Perhaps if you told me the reason you needed this information I could assist you better. 

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

Hi Bill, Thanks so much for the reply. We have an inspector who is concerned that we might be exceeding the utility company's provided gas with all of our appliances. He didn't realize we weren't purchasing one of the crazy expensive Thermador ranges - but still he is concerned. So I've had to contact all the manufacturers of anything in our house that uses gas and find out both input & output BTUs of each one. As if we would ever run everything at full BTUs all at the same time. For example, if I was running my gas fireplace insert to provide heat to the downstairs, I certainly wouldn't be running the furnace to heat the whole rest of the house - which is extremely inefficient & not cost-effective! Anyhow, thanks so much for your help & I will use the 22,000 number just to be on the safe side in the calculations.

Normally the gas is supplied by pressure and is measured using a manometer. For all the appliances the pressure should be requlated at the meter to supply a uniform pressure of 7.5 water column, thats pressure. A fireplace insert will use lots of gas but the meter should be able to supply the constant pressure unles there is a restriction in the gas line somewhere. The fireplace uses lots of gas but the meter should just spin the cost of using it up in a dollor amount, if you understrand what I mean.

Q:

Kenmore Gas Dryer Won't Heat

A:

A dryer is an appliance we depend on so much, when there's laundry to be done.  I have taken some time to research your question here on the Manage My Life website and I noticed that someone else had asked a similar question with a posted response from an expert. I attached the link below for you to view. I hope the link that I provided is helpful. Have a nice day!

Thanks for the information about your dryer model 11094832200; sorry you are having a problem with it heating.Based on the information you have provided I would suggest testing the thermostats in the heating circuit, including the Thermal fuse. I have attached a wiring diagram for your convenience: see below.I hope this will help you find the cause of no power to burner assembly, if you need additional assistance please reply with more details and I will be happy to respond.  If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services. Ron H.

Thank you both very much. With your help, I fixed my dryer. The wiring diagram was a huge help. For future reference for anyone else that has the same problem: - My dryer wouldn't heat. - I pulled off the front panel exposing the burner assembly. With the panel off I started the dryer on a cycle with a "High" heat setting and observed the ignition coil. The coil wasn't glowing. - I unplugged the ignition coil and tested its resistance with a multi-meter. The ignition coil tested for between 75-150 ohms, which meant that the coil was okay. This means that the coil was not getting power. - I started the dryer again and tested the power supply portion of the plug for voltage. There was no voltage across the plug; therefore, the coil was definitely not getting power. - With the wiring diagram supplied by Ron H you can see that there is a thermal fuse and a thermostat wired in series with the coil. I tested the thermostat for resistance, and it was within the limits specified. Now check the thermal fuse. - I tested the thermal fuse for continuity and didn't even receive a reading on the multi-meter. I was using a pretty cheap multi-meter so to be sure that it was reading properly I double checked the fuse for voltage. Since the thermal fuse is wired in series, when it is operating correctly there should be no voltage drop across the fuse (i.e. the voltage should read zero). I started the dryer on a cycle and tested for VAC. I got a reading of 120 volts across the fuse. Case closed, bad fuse. - Replace fuse. ***WARNING: Some of the tests described above are preformed with the dryer plugged into a power supply. This creates and electrical shock hazard.

When a gas dryer runs but doesn't heat the thermal fuse is usually the first part to check. The fuse can be checked for continuity if a meter is available or it can be bypassed to check if a small piece of insulated wire is available. Remember to unplug the dryer first.
