Kenmore Elite Smartheat Quiet Pak 9 Model # 11095089402 Gas Dryer, not heating up

Hello, This dryer is not heating up, but all other mechanisms seem to operate fine (control panel, the barrel turns, etc). I just replaced the fixed thermostat (part #8573028, www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/8573028/0026/110?pathTaken=directMatch&filterPart=&pop=flush&prst=0&shdPart=8573028), but that didn't fix it. The 6-inch diameter tube in the bottom right area of the dryer lights up with a buzzing noise for a few seconds, then shuts off. I assume this mechanism is supposed to get the heat going. After a minute or so, it tries again, and again, and the tube continually repeats its glow. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

i understand the concern with your dryer not heating properly after you have replaced a part already. while you are waiting for an expert to respond, i have attached a helpful link below that may provide information to assist you with your question.

thank you for submitting your question. based off of your description it sounds like the gas coil valves in your unit are faulty. yadira has also provided you with some good information. the image below is your wiring diagram and instructions on how to test your heating circuit for you gas dryer to help determine what the issue is. it will also instruct you on how to test your gas coil valves. you will need an ohms/volt meter to perform the test. you can order any parts from our sears parts direct web site. i hope this helps. please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance with this repair. thank you for using manage my life.

thanks tykara. can you recommend an ohm meter for this purpose? thank you

Tykara, October 29, 2012

any ohm meter will work for this repair. when i'm testing, my $15 digital meter works just fine to get the job done. please let me know if you require further assistance.

hi tykara, i've tested the gas coil valves, flame sensor, and high limit thermostat, then i replaced them all as new. unfortunately, the issue remains. again, the round cylinder lights up with a buzzing sound, then turns off. about 90 seconds later, it lights up again with buzzing sound, and turns off. this repeats until i turn the dryer off. can you recommend anything else? thank you, michael

hello michael,

i would like to jump in this thread to assist you. i have attached an additional wiring diagram for your assistance. from the description, it would appear that the flame sensor is ok and if the igniter is lighting up and cycling, you have voltage through the entire circuit, up to the gas valve assembly itself. this narrows the issue down to the gas valve assembly, wiring, or the gas supply itself. i want to verify that the part number w10500695 was the exact part number / assembly that you replaced. i have attached a link to this part at the end of the reply and i suggest ohm testing the new coils too. the next issue that has a high potential for causing this failure would be wiring. if there is a failure within the harness, this issue could also occur. the gas valve harness is available on it's own and is the second link at the end of this reply.

gas supply to the valve is very suspect according to the description and i would like more information. while replacing the valve assembly, did you smell gas? has the main gas supply valve been verified to be back on after replacing the assembly? i think that the issue lies within these items that i have brought up and i would like you to check them carefully and then reply back with anything that you find. any background information that may be useful will also be appreciated.

i look forward to assisting you further.

hi jerry, per all the recommendations, here are the parts i ordered and installed: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/b004xldeau/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/b006tzernq/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/b0053y29m0/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00 this evening i turned off the closest gas valve, unscrewed the gas intake from the dryer, and briefly turned the gas valve back on. is the wiring harness included in part #w10500695? if so, i will probably just order that. thank you for your help, michael

hello michael,

it is not included with it. if you have a multimeter you will be able to test these items without having to go to the expense of replacing them. i do think that the issue is within the valve harness or the coils that you have ordered.

let me know if you have a multimeter and if you would like instructions for testing the wiring and coils.

hi jerry, i do have a multimeter and would appreciate the instructions to test the wiring and coils. i have already tested and replaced the coils, though. thanks, michael
