Kenmore Gas Dryer does not dry clothes.

If this is the electric version then after 15 years you probably need a new heating element, they are not difficult to install and are not terribly expensive as a DIY project.

I have a Kenmore gas dryer model 110.77670400. The ignitor lights, but gas valve doesn't open. I tested thermal switches in back for continuity and all checked good. Flame sensor is good and I replaced...


Thank you for contacting

If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time.However unplug your Kenmore gas dryer from its electrical outlet. Make sure that all electricity has been disconnected from your dryer.

Turn off the gas valve that supplies gas to your Kenmore gas dryer. Remove the gas flex line at the shut-off valve using an adjustable wrench.

Remove your dryer's back panel. Take out the screws on the back of the dryer and the panel will come free. Set the panel and screws aside until you are ready to replace them.

Locate the thermal fuse between the dryer's blower housing and exhaust. The thermal fuse looks like a white plastic strip with two connected wires.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Dryer hets for a few minutes then gas turns off, will restart and heat if left off for a few minutes

With the limited information you gave I will assume this is a gas dryer that the flame starts for a minute or so and then shuts off. This problem is going to be your safety valve coils...basically they get old and over time of heating then cooling develop a short when they heat up...It may appear the gas lights to start but then goes out until the safety valve coils cool back down. Here is a picture of the coils 57d5263.jpgThis The coils are mounted to the gas safety valve, This should solve your problem. Hope this helps, Please feel free to comment again if you have any further questions or concerns. Good Luck! Mike

Gas dryer not maintaining heat. 70 Series Kenmore/Whirlpool 76722

Fuse is ok . Problem is the soils on the burner valve . If the dryer heats when started , the electricity goes thru the coils to open the valve . Once the coils get warm , 1 will open (short) until it cools back down . The coils can be replaced just by removing the front panel . Only 2 screws hold the coils in place . No turning off gas , dissasembling dryer .

I have a kenmore gas dryer modal # 76722691 76722, it runs but no heat. i did clean exhaust vents. I feel no heat.

Do you hear a snap when it first starts? If yes check the ignitor. If no check the thermal fuse and/or the thermostat.

Kenmore gas dryer

Hello gage400,
happy to assist you,

You said, Your dryer tries to light up, then a rumbling noise and the gas shuts down

this sounds as if you may have a bad igniter and the system shuts down when it fails to ignite.

best you call one of the servicer s available here on the web sight sight!

This is not something you want to play around with in a gas dryer!

You do need hands on service.

Bless you,
keep me informed and tell me how you are!

Please give me a good rating before you sign off.
Thank You
