dryer will not dry clothes


Good morning Ken..... I can appreciate your ability to do your own work and save $.... I see that an expert answered your question earlier discussing a venting issue. With the flame going out after 5 seconds I can understand how venting may not apply.... It may be a coil that you have described replacing in the past. I have provided a link below that will discuss the topic in greater detail. The first half of the message is dedicated to venting but the second half will likely serve you better. An expert will respond to you shortly. I hope this link will help you and have a nice day.

Here is a link for that previous question that you asked: Gas dryer #11078942892 heats for about 10 seconds, then the flame is our, and dryer tumbles with no heat. I have all ready examined the vent system, . It is possible that you have weak gas valve coils again. The part number for the kit that has those gas valve coils is 279834. You can order that kit from this page: Gas Valve Coil Kit for Kenmore Dryer Model 110.78942892 . Be sure that you unplug the dryer and shut off the gas supply before accessing internal components and replacing parts.

If you replace those gas valve coils and still have problems, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .
