Question and Answers

Q:

dryer not drying

A:

Check the gas supply cut-off valve for the dryer to make sure that it is fully open and that the dryer has an adequate gas supply provided to it.

Troubleshooting this type of problem in a laundry center (combo washer/dryer) is difficult. I recommend that you have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

If you want to diagnose and repair this failure yourself, you can follow these tips:

The first link provided in the above response has the theory of operation for the gas valve assembly on this type of dryer. If the igniter is glowing and then fading out as described in that theory of operating, then you will probably need to replace the gas valve coils (kit part 279834). You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website. Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components.

If the igniter is not glowing at all, I recommend that you unplug the dryer and check the thermal fuse on the blower housing of the dryer. If that fuse is blown, it will need to be replaced. Here is a link for a video that shows how to test a thermal fuse: Thermal Fuse Testing . NOTE: Follow the tips on checking the exhaust vent duct system if the thermal fuse was blown.

The first image below shows how to access the major components in this dryer. I provided a wiring diagram in the second image. Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components.

This information may help you determine the cause of your heating failure. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.
