If this is a gas dryer, you probably have bad valve coils, they can work intermittently, usually for the first part of a cycle, but when they heat up the internal resistance gets too high and they fail to open the gas valve. Once they cool off, (by continuing to air dry) they will work again for a few minutes. They will also make a buzzing/rattling (maybe "metal" ) noise as voltage is applied. For any Kenmore gas dryer, get part #279834 it contains both valve coils. Very easy to replace. Another possibility is that your duct work is plugged, check airflow. Hope this helps.

Intermittant heating.It will begin to glow....sometimes the flames shoot out for a short time....but then go out. Then, it will continue to glow red without flames igniting,then goes dim....couple minutes...


This is usually caused by faulty coils on the heat valve. they can be purchased seperate from the gas valve and are relatively easy to install..

Dryer Heats for 30 Minutes then stops heating


Hello there :
what you are going to want to do is to troubleshoot the heating circuit
if you have a multimeter
there is a thermal Cut-Out switch that is connected to the heater box.) -simply unplug wires and take reading from the end connetors
your reading should be 0 ohms. and nothing else
Next check
a part called the Hi-Limit Thermostat that is connected to the heater box, it should be located closest to the heating element wire leads unplug the wires and take the reading across the 2 wire connections . this should give you a reading of 0 ohms and nothing else.
Now if any of these 2 parts are not in this range they need to be replaced and i would recommend that you replace them as a set cause if one usually goes out then the other one will soon follow ok

I hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael
