Thanks for the information about your dryer model 11097284100; sorry you are having this problem, I will be glad to assist you.Based on your description I would suspect that the thermostats are not operating properly and would need replacing. However without inspecting the dryer completely that is only an educated guess as there could be other factors and components causing this overheating. High limit thermostat and Cycling thermostat. There are two main thermostats that regulate the heat, they would cost about 65.00 plus tax and the cost of a technicians' trip fee and labor. Sears Parts DirectYou can contact Sears Services to get the charges for coming out in your area.   You will have to decide for yourself on the value of repair or replacing the dryer.

Q:

Why does my Kenmore Series 90 gas dryer model 110.76912693 run but not heat up?

A:

Make sure that your gas supply is turned on for the dryer and that gas pressure is adequate.

Based on your symptoms, you could have a blown thermal fuse. The following link of a previous answer describes the process for accessing and replacing this fuse: How do I replace a thermal fuse in my 1992 Kenmore dryer model 11097284100?

If you are able to access this thermal fuse, you can check it for continuity with a volt/ohm meter. Unplug the dryer before accessing internal components. After accessing the fuse, pull one wire off and measure the resistance across the lead of the fuse with a volt/ohm meter. You should measure near zero ohms of resistance (continuity). If you measure infinite resistance (open), then the fuse is blown and will need to be replaced.

If the thermal fuse is blown, check the lint screen. Make sure that it is clear of lint. If you use dryer softener sheets, wash the lint screen with water and dry it thoroughly to remove residue that can build up from dryer sheets. Check the flexible vent behind your dryer for kinks or clogs. Check the duct to the outside of your home for restrictions.

If the thermal fuse is okay, you could have a failed component on you gas valve assembly such as failed gas valve coils. Resubmit your question with additional details if you need more help.

Q:

Why won't my dryer produce any heat?

A:

I must assume the new ignitor is not glowing red. There could be one of several possible failures preventing your ignitor from glowing. I added an image below with the wiring diagram of your dryer and the theory of operation. In order for the new ignitor to operate it must have a 110-120 volt supply. The electrical circuit to the ignitor is supplied when timer switch 2 closes. The voltage is carried to the thermal fuse over to the operating thermostat and through the hi limit thermostat through the flame sensor and then to the ignitor. The motor centrifugal must close contact 2M to 1M once the motor is running to provide neutral to the ignitor also. The components shown in the wiring circuit to the gas burner will need to be tested for continuity with an ohm meter. If any one of the components tests open/no continuity, the component will need to be replaced. Disconnect one wire from the component being tested before checking continuity.
