Question and Answers

Q:

Dryer won't turn off unless unplugged 11097574100 Kenmore Gas dryer

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 in not turning off.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore Dryer model number 11097574100.

Is the timer advancing, running through the cycles and just not going off?    If the timer advances properly in the timed cycle the the timer may be okay.   If not advancing then  you know you need a timer.

What I would do is check the cheapest thing first and that is check your lid switch.   With an ohmmeter check to see if the switch is good or bad.  If the lid switch is good then most likely you will need to replace the timer motor.

Lid switch for the model

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your Dryer is not working properly or heating up. I did locate how to test the thermal fuse for your dryer. Click here for the thermal fuse information. I have also found how to test the igniter. Click here for the instructions to test the thermostat. Click here for how to test the Radiant Sensor. I did not see a fan switch, but the sensor is next to the blower. If you need to order parts when you are done just click on the blue links of the parts name. Thermal Fuse, Thermostat, Internal bias thermostat, igniter, radiant sensor. Let me know if this helps.

 

Thank you for your question. Have a great day.

That second link for a previous answer that Alina F. posted in the above response has a theory of operation for the gas valve burner assembly in this type of dryer. I recommend that you review that document and then start the dryer in a heated cycle. Pull the observation plug on the lower left side of the front panel and observe that burner assembly to see if the igniter is glowing and then fading out to light the burner as shown in that theory document. If it is, then you either have a problem with the gas supply provided to the dryer or you have bad gas valve coils (kit part 279834). I recommend that you check the gas supply first. Make sure that the gas supply cut-off valve is fully open and that you have adequate gas pressure provided to the dryer. If the gas supply is okay, then you can replace the gas valve coils. The kit that is part number 279834 has both coils. You can order that kit from the Sears PartsDirect.com website. Here is a link for a brief repair video that shows how to replace those coils: Dryer Gas Valve Coil Replacement .

If the igniter is not glowing at all, I recommend that you check the thermal fuse. The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the first image below with the circuit through that igniter traced in red. If that thermal fuse is blown, the igniter will not glow. You can access that thermal fuse by unplugging the dryer and removing the back panel. That thermal fuse is located on the blower housing. Here is a brief repair video that shows how to check that fuse: Thermal Fuse Testing . If that thermal fuse is blown, it will need to be replaced. NOTE: Check the exhaust vent to the outside of your home as shown in that repair video if that thermal fuse was blown.

If the thermal fuse is okay, you could a problem with one of the other components in that circuit that is traced in red. You can use that wiring diagram and a volt/ohm meter to check the other components for continuity if necessary.

These tips may help you diagnose and repair this heating failure in your dryer. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details based on the above tests.

If you get a point where you need to have as service technician examine and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .
