Dryer will not shut off 11097588210 Kenmore Gas dryer


Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your dryer will not shut off. I did look into the model number you have provided and I have found common parts that will cause the dryer to stay running. The common parts could be the timer or the motor going out itself. You would have to test the timer to see if that is the case. If the timer is good then I would recommend a technician to test the motor itself. It's time for a new timer if the timer doesn't move during the cycle or doesn't shut off the dryer when time runs out.

Dryer does not heat up 11097588210


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when dryer won't heat up.
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Kenmore model number 110.97588210.

First thing for safety and concerns to keep dryer running well is to check the lint screen and vent of air flow going out of the house.   If clogged up it could cause heating problems on any dryer.
To prevent a Blocked Vent Hood, once a year: 
1.  Clean any lint blockage from the exhaust vent hood.
2.  Make sure the vent hood flappers move freely.
3.  Check for screen/grate openings that allow bird or rodent nests.
4.  Replace exhaust vent hood if damaged.
5.  Check for good air flow while running the dryer.
Note: Poor airflow or decreased airflow indicates further vent system cleaning is needed

When a gas dryer isn't heating there are a few things to look at.  The ignitor can be bad even though it lights up.  You can test it by
In the burner system you have
1.  The ignitor  image key number 4
2.  The pair of coils to the side of the ignitor key 13 & 14
Behind the blower there is
3.  The thermistor key 42
4.  The thermal fuse key 59

Test of gas ignitor for dryer:
1.  Unplug the power cord, and also turn off the gas supply behind the washer.
    The gas supply shutoff valve is behind the washer between the flex line and the house gas line.
2.  Pull the toe panel away from the dryer.  If necessary, slide a putty knife between the toe panel
    and the front panel.  Slide the putty knife toward the corner until you feel the srping clip.
    Push the putty knife over the spring clip with one hand, while pulling the panel away with
    the other hand.
3.  Find the ignitor on the burner assembly.  It is like a stem that protrudes from the burner.
    It has a ceramic square box and mounts to the burner assembly.  Follow the wires from the
    ignitor to where they connect to the burner.
4.  Grasp the end of the ignitor wirews with needle nose pliers, and pull them off the terminals.
    Some newer models have a wire connector.  Grasp the connectors in both hands and pull them apart.
    Adjust the settings on your multimeter to read ohms.
5.  Touch one meter probe to each of the ignitor wires.  If your ignitor wires are in a single 
    connector, insert a probe into each hole of the connector until the tip of the probes touch the
    wires.  The multimeter should show a reading between 50 ohms and 600 ohms.  A reading of zero or
    infinity indicates a bad igniter the will require replacement.

If you have further questions please let me know.
Thanks for choosing Sears
