Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

There could be one of many possible component failures preventing your dryer from heating. In order to heat, the electronic control must close the heater relay in order to complete the path of voltage to the thermal fuse, high limit thermostat, flame sensor and the igniter. The igniter must also be supplied with Nuetral once the motor starts when the motor centrifugal switch closes 5M to 6M.

I recommend removing the front lower access panel first and then start the dryer. Watch for the igniter at the end of the burner assembly to see if glows red or not. If it does not glow, one of the above components mentioned above is faulty. The thermal fuse would be the first one to disconnect and test for continuity using an Ohm meter. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing/disconnecting any components.

If the thermal fuse is Okay, then I would disconnect and test the glow bar igniter for resistance. If the igniter is Okay, then the high limit and flame sensor will need to be disconnected and measured with the Ohm meter for continuity. If all the components are Okay, then it could have a faulty electronic control board.

If the glow bar is glowing red and then fading off, the two solenoid coils on the gas valve are likely too weak to open the gas valve and both coils will need to replaced.

Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

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 .

I'm having a problem locating the thermal fuse ... I follow the red wire from the high-limit thermostat and it goes back behind the black assembly on the left side of the dryer (behind the toe panel) and up to the electronic control I'm assuming. The thermal fuse is supposed to be between those two according to the schematic. Any ideas?

Thanks, I found the thermal fuse and thermistor! I checked both and they are fine. I then checked the HL thermostat and it was okay as well. Today I will check the ignitor and flame sensor. If those are good, I guess check the operating thermostat next?

gwwooley: You model does not have an operating thermostat. The thermistor is the component that lets the control board know what the operating temperatures are. I added an image below of the wiring diagram. I traced the electrical heating circuit from the line voltage to the igniter. I hope this helps.
