Question and Answers

Q:

Why won't my dryer produce heat?

A:

I assume the dryer is not producing any heat. There could be one out of several possible failures preventing your dryer from producing any heat.

If the dryer is heating but takes a long time to dry, check for a restricted lint filter and for restriction in the venting system.

It could have one of the following component failures ranging from most likely to less likely:

  • Failed glow bar igniter
  • Solenoid coils
  • Open flame switch
  • Open thermal cutoff
  • Open thermal fuse
  • Operating thermostat
  • High limit thermostat
  • Motor centrifugal switch
  • Timer

Remove the little square inspection cover (key#12) located below the door on the left as shown in the image that I added. Start the dryer and look through the opening for a bright red glow. If you see the glow bar igniter glowing and then fade back off without any flame ignition, the coils on the gas valve most likely need replaced. If the igniter does not glow red then most likely it will have one failed components mentioned above.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your gas dryer.

Q:

kenmore dryer won't continue to re-light

A:

I see that you read the response from Joseph P. and looked at the answer for the Amana dryer gas valve coil failure. You indicated that you are looking for a peep hole to observe the gas burner operation in your dryer. The first image below shows the location of an observation plug in the front panel of your Kenmore dryer below the door. You can remove that plug and observe the gas burner assembly on your dryer while it is running. The second image below provides specific technical information about the gas burner assembly in your exact dryer. I suspect that you have weak gas valve coils that are causing this heating problem. Replacing the gas valve coils will likely fix this failure. There is a kit (part 279834) available from the Sears PartsDirect website that has both coils needed for this repair. Here is a direct link for that part: Valve coils .

The third image below shows how to open the cabinet to access the burner assembly. Be sure that you unplug the dryer and shut off the gas supply before accessing internal components. The 4th image has a procedure for replacing the gas valve coils.

This information should help you repair the dryer. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

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 .

Q:

Need dryer circuit diagram

A:

The wiring diagram for that model of dryer is shown in the image below. That information should help you check that circuit.

I recommend that you check the exhaust vent duct air path to the outside of your home. Make sure that it is clear. If that vent path is clear, then your symptoms point to weak gas valve coils. Replacing those coils may fix your problem. Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components.
