Question and Answers

Q:

Why is my Kenmore dryer model 11076862500 running but not heating properly?

A:

The first thing that I recommend checking is the flexible vent hose behind the dryer. Make sure that it is not kinked. Check inside for a clog or restriction. Also, check the lint screen to make sure that it is clear. Check the air flow coming out of the vent to the outside of the home. A gas dryer must always be properly vented to the outside of the home. As a temporary test, you can start a medium load of wet laundry on high heat with the flexible vent hose venting directly into the laundry room to check the operation and cycling temperature of the dryer. Check the cycling temperature of the air coming out of the exhaust vent of the dryer. It should heat up to about 150 degrees and then shut off until it cools down about 15 or 20 degrees. The burner should then come back on to heat the dryer back up to 150 degrees. If the dryer is cycling properly and dries the clothes normally during this test while venting directly into your laundry room, then your problem is caused by a restricted vent duct system to the outside of the home. You will need to clean this system to resolve your dryer problem. NOTE: The dryer vent will need to be reconnected to vent properly to the outside of the home following this temporary test. Do not continue to run this gas dryer with it venting into the laundry room.

If the dryer is not cycling properly, you could have a component failure. The following link of a previous answer describes the theory of operation for your gas valve assembly: Why won’t the igniter glow on my gas dryer? Understanding this theory of operation may help you determine the failure that is causing your drying problem. If the burner just heats once and does not reignite, then you could have weak gas valve coils. Replacing the gas valve coils would likely fix this type of problem.
