I don't know if this will help or not but have you tried cleaning the vent tube and the vent inside and out? Also if you use dryer sheets the lint screen probably needs cleaning. To do this just wash it in some hot soapy water and rinse. You will be surprised that all this will help. Good luck

Dryer won't heat up, still tumbles but no heat. Kenmore gas dryer model #110 72612100


Each gas dryer has an electric element that heats up to ignight the gas in a small combustion chamber. for safety reasons the gas will not come on if the element is malfunctioning. After unplugging the electricity from the dryer you can get in and unplug the little element. if you can see that it is broken just replace it. if it doesn't look broken it most likely is broken but not percieved by a visual inspection. put an ohm meter on the terminals to the element and if it reads infinity the element is bad. replace the element and she should fire right up. literally.
Presto.
If the element is not the problem then it may be a wiring issue. if it looks like there has been a small lint fire in the dryer you probably have bigger issues than no heat.

Dryer does not heat up


First, I would check that the ignitor is functioning properly. It should glow orange if it is heating up properly. If it is not heating up, the ignitor is defective. The next thing to check is the gas valve coils. These are solenoids that are located right above the gas valves, that, when energized, open the gas valves. If these malfunction, the gas valves do not open and the burner cannot ignite. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

Kenmore series 80 gas dryer will not heat up


Hi. this dryer has a set of coils that sit on top of the actual gas valve assembly. these coils activate the main and secondary gas valves and if the coil assembly is malfunctioning or, the wires and clips are corroded, the coils will not activate the gas valves to open and close. this malfunction will affect the heating process within this dryer unit.

I recommend inspecting the dryer coil assembly. use a mulitimeter to test for Resistance. you should get a reading of some type of current flow through the wires and, if this is the case, the coils are bad and they will need to be replaced.

This test is actually not needed. the non existing heat is a red flag on its own and, it greatly confirms a major failure within the coil assembly. replacing the coils will fix your dryer.

PLease rate and god bless:)
