Question and Answers

Q:

11074842400 gas not drying cloths all the way

A:

I can understand your concern with your dryer taking too long to dry. Based on you details you likely have one of two possible failures.

The first thing I recommend trying is to temporarily disconnect the vent hose from the back of the dryer and then dry a normal load. If it dries in the normal amount of time then this would indicate a restricted venting system. If it continues to take too long to dry with the vent hose disconnected, the two (2) solenoid coils mounted on the gas valve assembly are likely weak and not always opening the gas valve.

To confirm if the solenoid coils are weak, pry the small square inspection cover off located below the dryer door and then monitor the burner operation. If you find the glow bar glowing red and then fading off without any burner ignition, replace both solenoid coils on the gas valve. The part number of the solenoid coil kit is #279834 and is available at Sears Parts Direct .

I added the instruction on how to remove the front panel and how to replace the solenoid coils.
