Thanks for the inquiry about lubing the rollers on your dryer. Because the rollers are normally self-lubricating, any type machine oil will do. I actually prefer lithium grease, but only use a very small amount on the shaft before installing the rollers. (Do not leave access grease on shaft) I hope this helps. Ron H.

I know that it can be very difficult to have issues with your dryer. If a gas dryer is running but not heating the most likely cause and the first part to check is the thermal fuse located on the blower exhaust. The images below may help you do-it-yourself if you have a few basic tools and a meter. Remember to unplug the dryer first. You can check the thermal fuse for continuity if you have an ohm meter. The fuse can be checked without a meter but you would need to be comfortable pulling the wires and joining them together. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

As Dezeray suggested in the first response; adding the model number of your dryer would be most helpful in providing model specific instructions.

Based on your symptom and details I suspect the two solenoid coils on the gas valve assembly are getting weak once the dryer has been running for a while and not able to open the gas valve. Replace both solenoid on the gas valve assembly and it will likely heat properly again. The gas valve assembly will be located behind the front lower access panel. If it does not have a front lower access panel; the front panel will have to be taken off. I added an image below of the solenoid coils and how to replace them.

So that's what I can tell you at this point. I can give you more detailed help if you could provide me with the complete model number. The model numbers are typically located inside the door or lid and on the back panel of the unit. If you could supply me with that information I will be happy to assist you further.

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 .

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. Rhonda; If it only smells of gas when using the dryer, the gas valve may not be shutting off completely due to a faulty gas valve assembly or possibly just be cause the solenoid coils are weak, if in fact they are weak. Based on your model number there is an access panel located below the door that can be taken off in order to access and view the burner operation. Remove the lower panel and then start the dryer and watch the glow bar igniter and burner operation. Each time the igniter comes on and glows, the gas valve should open and ignite. If you find the igniter glowing and fading off without burner ignition, replacing the two solenoid coils on the gas valve will likely resolve the issue and gas odor. If you continue to smell gas, I recommend calling a service technician or gas company to locate the leak. To remove the lower access panel, remove the screws along the top corners. I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
