Just get the filter out and remove the 2 phillips screw init's housing on top. Then use a putty knife to press against the spring clips that hold down the top Then just roll the drum around to the top where the holes are to reattach the baffle, get some screws and put it back.clothes roll into a ball on kenmore gas dryer #110 - 87656db.jpg

My kenmore gas dryer works for 5 minutes then control panel flashs and won't heat th cloths


GOD IS GOOD !!!!
Gas Dryer no heat: or shuts down soon after heating CHECK:

Thermal Fuse
If the air flow in the dryer is restricted, the temperature in the heating chamber can get hot enough to blow the thermal fuse. If the fuse blows, it cuts power to the coils that control the gas valve. The fuse is usually mounted to the exhaust duct just inside the back panel. You can check its continuity with an ohmmeter. If, after disconnecting the fuse, you get any reading other than 0 when you touch the leads of the meter to its terminals, it has blown. There's no way to restore it -- you'll have to install a replacement.

Igniter and Gas Valve Coils
TEST with a multi meter: The igniter is an electric conductor that works like the element in an electric heater, glowing hot enough to ignite gas when you turn on the dryer. This conductor can burn out, and when it does, it may glow, but it won't get hot enough to ignite the gas. At times it may give a reading of continuity yet fail mechanically and not get hot enough to ignite flame though it gets hot and glows and even may show Ohms or continuity ( close circuit) ?

Occasionally, the Gas safety valve and the electric coils that control the gas valve are defective -- they can wear out when the dryer gets old. When this happens, the igniter glows, but gas never enters the heating chamber or does not stay consistant.
Performing a continuity test on either part will help you determine whether or not you need to replace it. But the coils should also be tested for amount of resistance as well as Ohms. As they may be showing ohms yet not putting out enough resistance to keep proper gas pressure flowing. Most coils should show at least 1300 ohms ( GIVE OR TAKE 150 OHMS). Anything significantly less Thus u get an ignition but then it soon goes back out. The flame does not stay lit.

Air Flow and Heat
The motor that drives the tumbler also drives a fan that circulates air through the heating chamber and the tumbler and expels it through the vent. If the air can't circulate, perhaps because of lint blockage, the heating chamber overheats, which prompts the cycling thermostat to turn off the gas. The thermostat resets when the chamber cools, but the chamber heats up quickly and the thermostat again shuts off the gas. The result is that the temperature in the tumbler doesn't stay hot, and your clothes take longer to dry, if they get dry at all.

Warning
There's a big difference between a dryer that doesn't heat up at all and one that just doesn't get hot enough to dry your clothes. In the first instance, the problem is usually a defective part, and things should be back to normal after you replace it. In the second instance, the problem is caused by restricted air flow, and you need to clear the lint filter and vents and take steps to prevent lint build-up. If you don't, you'll use more energy for drying than you need and the dryer may continue to malfunction. Worse, you may have a dryer fire.

My dryer sounds like there are metal balls rolling around inside when clothes are drying


Sounds like the rollers are worn out. If they are fine then see if the dryer has glides on the drum.

Clothes roll into a ball on matag dryer


As you insert the clothing into the dryer make sure you open up the larger pieces fully so they do not ball up. Frequently people put large bed sheets in before opening them up and everything gets rolled inside them. If your load is too small, that might happen, also!

I have a kenmore gas dryer 110 it doesnt dry the clothes the burner goes on then of stays worm not hot check the fuse its ok the igniter works also dont know what else to check


if the flame is liting but stops after 15 to 30 minutes you have bad gas coils.if the flame is liting and clothes are not drying you have to clean out the dryer and the vent line.remove the vent line,if it's a long run to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,check the outside and make sure nothing is blocking the vent like a screen or cage,if there is remove it and don't put it back after you blow out the line,then clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,if filter is on top the duct is in the back,remove the front panel and vac out all the lint in the cabinet where the motor is.number one problem with dryers is lint build up,all a dryer does is move air,if it's clogged with lint your gonna have problems.send full model number next time and let me know how you make out,if you need more help let me know

The tumble wrungs on the inside of my dryer are falling off


I wonder if Gorilla Glue or Mighty Mend It might work, not sure about the heat. There are also these spiked balls that you can put in your dryer that help to separate and soften clothes. If nothing else, buy 2 sets of these.

I have a Kenmore 70 Series gas dryer, model 76712691. The dryer has 3 plastic ''tumblers'' inside the dryer, to help the clothes tumble. Two of the tumblers have fallen off inside, leaving big holes inside...


Pull the dryer away from the wall, there is no bottom on the dryer, so the screws should be on the floor.
You can then pop the lid up from the front and fold it back. When you do, you will see the drum. Roll the drum around until you see the holes and reattach the tumblers.
You can also access the drum from below. Tip the dryer on its back and you can see the drum from the bottom.
Good luck.
