Question and Answers

Q:

How do I access the burner assembly on my Kenmore Series 80 dryer?

A:

To access the burner assembly on this type of dryer, you will need to remove the front panel. The procedures below show this process on a similar model of dryer. Your dryer may be slightly different, but the procedure is the same. NOTE: Be sure to unplug the dryer and shut off the gas supply before beginning this process. Internal metal edges can be sharp. Protective gloves are recommended.

You may need to remove the drum to gain better access to the burner assembly. This procedure is shown in the third image.

Q:

What are the troubleshooting steps for a Kenmore Series 80 gas dryer when the gas is not igniting?

A:

First, make sure that the gas supply shut-off valve for the dryer is open. Inadequate gas supply could cause this problem.

The first image below provides an explanation of how the gas valve assembly works in your dryer. Understanding this process can help you diagnose your failure.

Since the igniter is glowing, your problem is likely isolated to the gas valve coils or the flame sensor. Although you mentioned that the igniter is working, you did not indicate whether it glows constantly or cycles off. If it does not cycle off, then the flame sensor could be stuck in a closed position or the igniter is not getting hot enough to trip the flame sensor. In this case, the flame sensor or igniter would need to be replaced.

If the igniter is shutting off but the valves are not opening to provide gas for ignition, then the gas valve coils will likely need to be replaced.

These tips should help you determine the cause of your ignition problem. If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.
