dryer won"t run 11097282800 Kenmore Dryer feature sheet

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com. I regret to hear that you are having issues with your dryer and do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. Im looking at your model number 11097282800 and the drive motor may be starting to fail or already failed. I recommend taking a look at the belt and the motor. If you are able to remove  the belt and try start running the dryer and see if the motor turns or continues the same. If it comtinues the same the motor will need to be replaced. If the motor runs fine without any trouble you may want to make sure that their is nothing preventing the drum from turning. 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 above to be taken to the page. If you have further questions please resubmit your question for further information.

Q:

Why did my Kenmore gas dryer model 110.97282800 stop heating?

A:

Check the gas supply cut-off valve to make sure that it is fully open. Make sure that you have an adequate gas supply provided to the dryer. (These basic initial troubleshooting steps should not be overlooked).

There is an observation hole with a plug in it on the left side of the front panel of the dryer just under the door. Pull the plug out of this hole. Start a heated cycle and observe the gas valve assembly. See if the igniter on the burner assembly glows. If not, I recommend that you check the thermal fuse to see if it is blown. The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing inside the back panel of the dryer. Unplug the dryer and shut off the gas supply. Remove the back panel. Locate the thermal fuse on the blower housing. The first image below shows the component locations in the back of your dryer. To test this thermostat, you can remove one wire and measure the resistance with a volt/ohm meter. You should measure near zero ohms of resistance if it is good. If it measures infinite resistance (open) then it is blown and will need to be replaced. As a temporary test to see if this is the only component that is preventing the dryer from heating, you can tape the two wires that attach to the thermal fuse together with electrical tape and then reassemble and test the dryer. If the igniter glows and the dryer heats properly, then replacing the thermal fuse will fix this heating problem. NOTE: Do not continue to run the dryer with this thermal fuse bypassed. It is an important safety feature of the dryer and must be replaced. Also, check the exhaust vent duct system to the outside of your home for clogs or restrictions. This type of problem could have caused the thermal fuse to blow. If unresolved, this type of problem could cause the thermal fuse to blow again.

If the thermal fuse is okay, then you could have an open operating thermostat, a failed high limit thermostat, a bad flame sensor, a failed igniter, an open contact in the motor centrifugal switch or a wiring failure between components. The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the third image below with the heating circuit traced through the igniter in red. The second image below shows the theory of operation and technical information for the gas valve assembly. I recommend that you check the operating thermostat and the high limit thermostat in the same manner that you checked the thermal fuse since these items are on the back of the dryer. If these components are okay, then you would need to check the igniter and the flame sensor. This link of a previous answer shows how to open the dryer cabinet to access the burner assembly: Why are the burners in my gas dryer not working 100% of the time? . The second image below describes how to check the components on the burner assembly.

If the igniter and flame sensor are okay then a failed motor switch or a wiring failure could prevent the igniter from glowing.

If the igniter is glowing and cycling off but you do not get gas ignition then you likely have bad gas valve coils. The linked answer above has information on replacing these coils.

These tips should help you diagnose and repair your heating failure in the dryer. If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

Q:

Our 16 year old Kenmore gas dryer no longer heats. Can we get parts? Is it worth getting fixed?

A:

Yes, most parts are still available for this model of dryer. Once we have a final diagnosis of why the unit wont heat we can check on the cost of repair. If you have a volt/ohm meter & decide to perform the diagnosing please get back with us on this.
