Gas......starts to heat then quits minutes later.


Problem is your gas solenoid coils. When they get worn they will open til they get out then shut. They will need to be replaced.

Part number 279834 replaces for most models.

No heat when the drier is turned on


Sounds like a bad igniter (cause's a spark that inturn lights the burner) if when you start the drier does it make a ticking sound, if not, replace the igniter, if it does then it may be a bad gas valve, not releasing gas, if so, replace the gas valve. Or it could a bad switch not allowing power to get to your componets. if so replace the start switch.

Dryer wont spin


Take the back off  of the drier after unplugging and the beklt goes from the motor pully all the way around outside of the the drum.You can't miss it. Most of the Kenmore drier belts are the same. WE have apliance repair parts stores locally.If you also do , go to the store with the old belt and match it up.

Kenmore front load washer won't heat


The gas burner assembly uses solenoid coils in a circuit with the flame sensor to safely ignite the burner. When the dryer starts a heated cycle, the circuit through those components is energized. The igniter glows until it reaches the proper temperature to ignite the gas, at which point the flame sensor trips open and the current flowing through that circuit is diverted to the gas valve coils so the gas valves open, and the burner lights and continues to burn. If the solenoid coils on the gas valves fail, the gas valves won't open for ignition. If the gas valve coils are weak, the burner lights during the initial ignition sequence from a cold start but it fails to light the burner on subsequent ignition attempts. In this situation, replace the valve coils. I Had the same problem with mine and I fixed for like $25.00 US. Its not hard to do look at the video. Either buy your part from them or to get it fast and not out of this world go to "repairclinic.com

No heat in kenmore 97273100 72731 front load gas cloths dryer


check the ignitor under the door panel on the left side of the burner if it gets red when you turn the dryer on.if yes than see if gas shoots out and yes than how long it stays on if in few minutes it turns off than need thermal fuse checked so let me know up to this point if it works or not .

Cycles but no heat


The igniter needs to be near the burner jet in order to get a flame started when gas is provided,, the thermo fuse should be situated on the heat duct. I do not have access to Kenmore service manuals to provide any specific darwing details.. my comments are based on other brands.. I hope this helps..
