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.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

Kenmore 90 Plus Series Gas Dryer that will not heat


It could be several other things thermal fuse, thermal cut out, hi limit thermostat, dryer coils, heat sensor,or igniter. All of these parts are inexpensive and easy to test and replace.There is a video at t http://appliancehelponline.com/gdryertroublevideo.html his will walk you thru the troubleshooting of these components. It may be a different model but the troubleshooting will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available. If you need help disassembling your machine there are videos of this also for most styles.

My gas dryer runs but no heat.


Most gas dryers use a surface-type ignitor, a ceramic element with traces that glow to ignite the gas and yours has failed. BTW, it's helpful to give model numbers so we don't have to guess.

Kenmore 74812 Gas Dryer. Was told it ignites,


The coils are not so that it will leak when they are removed. Two screws release the bracket on top of them and they slip right off.

Dryer will heat up then gas shuts off and will not re-ignite.


That is a sign that the coils that open the gas valve have become weak. The one sitting toward the outside has a 3 wire connector and works with the igniter. When worn out they may open the gas valve for about 3 second or sometimes not at all.If you look inside the door and get me the model number I will get the part number for you. Some people sale a kit of 2 each. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Start gas dryer heat will ignite after a couple minutes no heat


That is usually a sign that the gas solenoids are weakening. Sometimes for some dryers you can buy a pair. Don't know your complete model number.Thanks, Sea Breeze (Visit my site)

Gas dryer suddenly won't heat


There is an igniter that should create a spark. Can you see a spark at the pilot light area? Your orifices could be clogged or dirty. Check to see if the valves and burner area are free from debris.

Kenmore 72602100 gas dryer runs but no heat


gas dryers would have an igniter to start the flame. check it first to see if its still ok. be carefull in handling them, they are very fragile. check also for availability of gas. could have a closed valve.

Kenmore gas dryer


That model does not have a pilot light.  It has an electronic ignitor.  If it is not igniting, either the igniter is not getting a signal to ignite, the igniter is burned out, or the gas solenoid is broken.  Probably the igniter is burned out.  It is item number 3018 at RepairClinic.com.
