Question and Answers


gas dryer does not heat


You did not mention that you checked the thermal fuse. Since you checked the continuity of the other components, I recommend that you check that component (with the dryer unplugged ). If that thermal fuse is okay, I recommend that you reassemble the dryer and start it in a heated cycle. Pull the observation plug out of the front panel and observe the burner assembly. If the igniter is glowing and cycling off but the burner does not igniter, then you probably have bad gas valve coils (kit part 279834). The theory of operation for the burner assembly is shown in the second image below. If the igniter is not glowing, then you could have a wiring failure in that circuit or a bad timer switch 2. This technical information should help you determine the cause of your heating failure in the dryer.

Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components. You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website. I provided a procedure for opening the cabinet in the first image below.

If you need more help, reply with additional details based on the technical information provided.

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 .
