If the ignitor is infact getting hot enough the next step is for the coils to open the valve to release the gas. Most of the time the ignitor is not drawing the proper amperage to open the coils. One or more of the following parts would be bad.
ignitor # 5303937186 $50.00 shipped to you.
coil # 5303931775 $40.00 shipped to you

Kenmore series 500 gas dryer not heating up. model # 77542600 Other than the ignitor what could be the problem?


Check the coils on gas valve. If igniter glows bright & no CLICK sound heard after a few seconds of igniter glowing, coils are bad, or flame sensor if so equiped

The gas dryer does not get warm?


to have it get warm there are 3 things have to be working together:
1- Ignition needs to be on to start the burning.
2- Gas valve needs to be opened after ignition is on.
3- Gas continues jetting in until a thermal switch turns the valve off.
You can open the rear panel to observe if the ignition is glowing or not. If it is not then that the culprit. If it is on then glows off after a while since the gas valve is not open, then you can just replace the thermo sensor if it is separate from the gas controller. Some controller has it integrated then you have to replace that. Good luck.

Kenmore gas dryer mod.110-73942. burner comes on as normal. After 5-10 minutes running Cycles off, igniter ( new) glows but no burner ign. Also replaced the sensor adjacent the igniter.


The gas valve coil is bad. When the ignitor is glowing the gas valve should open and allow gas in to be ignited. Change the gas valve.

Kenmore 80 series Gas Dryer


HI. you are correct. this dryer, although gas, is using a Glow igniter system. most older models used the snap igniter that clicks over and over to spark the burner but, this dryer is only 2 years old so, it should be outfitted with a glow igniter system. This igniter is powered by electricity.

It works in conjunction with a Flame sensor.

Kenmore Dryer only lights gas sporaticly


replace the igniter. The ignitor is the most comon problem with gas appliances checking continuity does not tell you if it is bad or not it has to draw a certain amount of amps to open the gas safty valve and the is no safe way to check this on most gas dryers

No heat to dryer


it mean it dont have a gas pilot and it has a ignitor instead ,,,, if you turn on the dryer and dont see a glow then it may have a bad ignitor ,,, on a kenmore it should not have a door to open unless it is a old unit and the newer ones has a peep hole to see into.

Dryer spins but does not heat


It sounds like to have a bad igniter. In order for your dryer's gas valve to open,the igniter has to be functioning properly. This is a built in safety feature to prevent gas from flowing without ignition. The igniter is located inside the machine usually under the drum near the gas valve. If you can access the inside look for a glow after you push the start button. If there's no glow, your igniter is bad. I hope this helps.
