Gas dryer starts blowing cold air after 5 minutes


This sounds like the dryer coils are failing. They tend to fail as they heat up. Here is a link that should help http://appliancehelponline.com/gdryertroublevideo.html

Kenmore 70 series gas dryer does not ignite I chenge the coil still not heating


Check for burnt out glow ignitor. If okay then check thermal fuse and all other thermostats with ohm meter..... all must be in closed position.

Gas dryer heat is intermediate


does the igniter glow white or orange? if it is orange you need to replace it. has to be white hot to ignite. if the igniter is white it could be the coils not opening the gas valve all the time - an intermittent problem.

I have a kenmore series 70 dryer (model # 78702894) gas dryer that is running but no heat. How safe is it for me to disconnect the gas line so I can remove the rear panel?


I am having a similar problem (I get heat for about 7 minutes then it stops heating) and just removed the back housing.  I did not have to disconnect the gas line to do this.  Just removed several screws. If your model is constructed differently and the gas line has to be disconnected, make sure you turn the gas off at the shut off switch back at the gas pipe.
Reading on your issue suggests to start by cleaning out all vent hoses to clear any lint obstructions.  I would start there and see if things improved then proceed to removing the back housing to get at the stuff in there.

Dryer will only run for 10 minutes at a time


Hi, this is heat related. the timer module on this unit is overheating, in return, it is shutting down due to the heat generated but the faulty timer circuits. you will need to replace the timer device asap.

Kenmore 70 Series


The most likely cause is a bad ignitor part number 279311. It has to glow to open the valve and ignite the gas. You should hear a loud click when you first start the dryer. That tells us there is voltage to the gas valve.
