Question and Answers


Why is my Kenmore model 110.97582100 gas dryer not heating?


You say the dryer ran all night but that the clothes eventually dried but you indicate the dryer is not heating.

Eventually clothes might dry without heat but if the dryer runs and does not heat at all then the most likely cause on a gas dryer is the thermal fuse.

If you're comfortable and confident in your do-it-yourself skills then the thermal fuse can be checked.

It is located in the back of the dryer and is accessed by removing the rear cover after unplugging the dryer from voltage.

The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing and will have a red wire and a blue wire on it.

If you have access to a volt/ohm meter you can ohm the thermal fuse out. Check continuity across the two terminals and if the circuit is open the fuse is bad.

If you don't have access to a meter there is another way you can check the fuse. Remember the dryer is unplugged from voltage. Unplug both wires from the thermal fuse and join (jump) them together with a piece of wire and wrap the connection with electrical tape. Do not let it contact any metal. With extreme caution you can run the dryer with the back off and see if it now heats.

If it does the fuse is bad and needs to be replaced. Do not continue to run the dryer with the fuse jumped. If it does not heat and the jumper is okay then there is another problem.

This information should help and if it brings up additional questions then submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.

Hi Valerie,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

I do not have any documents that tell me the amount of gas this dryer uses per cycle. Here is a way you can find this out.

  1. Make sure you are not using any other gas appliances in your home.
  2. Record the readings on your gas meter.
  3. Run a few dryer cycles.
  4. Record the readings on your gas meter before and after each cycle.
  5. Add those readings together
  6. Divide this by the number of cycles you ran.

This will give you a rough average of the amount of gas your dryer uses per cycle.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
