Question and Answers

Q:

I have a kenmore gas dryer model 110.97590140 that runs but heat doesn't come on

A:

You will need to remove the front lower toe panel to make some voltage & resistance checks with a multimeter in order to determine which part has failed. I have outlined the path of voltage to the igniter & circled the suspect components. I recommend checking the igniter first. All of the components from the timer to the igniter have to show closed continuity. Please see the image below for step by step instructions.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I do not believe the model number was copied or read properly. I do not show model 110.97570140 to be a valid model number. Without a valid model number I can only provide general information.

If the dryer will heat and dry clothes using the Auto dry cycle then it should also run and heat in the time dry cycle and start and run in the Air dry cycle without any heat. You mentioned Air dry does not work, I assume you mean the dryer will not start in the Time and Air dry cycles and will only start, heat and dry in the Auto Dry cycles. If this is correct, I suspect a timer issue.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post along with a valid model number.

Robert: Thank you for adding the correct model number. I still do not have a full and complete understanding of what the dryer will not do. You said "Auto dry cycle works fine, Air dry and Timed dry cycles do not work." Are you saying it will not start on the Air Dry and Times cycles? If it will run and heat in the Auto cycle but will not start or run in the Timed and Air dry cycles, then is likely a timer but very unlikely. Could you provide additional details of the symptoms and reply in this thread and I will be happy to assist you.

Thank you for submitting such an interesting problem. The timer may be at fault but there are some other considerations. There is an electronic control board that controls how the timer advances through the cycle but it shouldn't prevent the motor from running.

The diagram below may help you with this problem.

The motor start circuit is illustrated with the potential parts preventing the motor from running circled. The belt switch and door switch tend to work or not. I wouldn't expect these parts to cause an intermittent problem.

The electronic control controls the timer advancing but it doesn't have anything to do with the motor starting.

The push to start switch may fail in such a way the motor might start when the button is pressed but then stop running when the start button is released. It can be checked with a meter is one is available.

I suspect the timer has broken but to confirm this will require a meter and some voltage checks.

You can reply with any additional details and if you have a meter and are comfortable using it. If you have no basic tools or a volt meter then this problem is best left to a technician.

You can have it repaired at your home by a Sears�s technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Please reply with additional details and we'll decide the next step.
