SOURCE: Kenmore gas dryer model #76812690 will not heat.

does the dryer heat initially when you first turn on the dryer Or no heat at all?

the first thing i would check is tthe thermal fuse thats located on the back of the unit. test it with a multimeter and see if it has continuity, if it doesnt then replace that and your operating thermostat. the check to be sure you venting to the outside of your house is not clogged

You may want to check if the heating element needs replacing. Most Dryers have 2 heating elements that are found by taking the back off, some of the newer dryers have 3.

SOURCE: kenmore gas dryer does not heat.heating element

Your gas dryer uses a pilot-less burner assembly that has an electric igniter. It is designed this way to prevent free-flowing gas from filling up the appliance cabinet without ignition. Such a condition could cause an explosion. The way the ignition system in most of today’s appliances work is like this:

1. Press the start button.

2. The igniter on the burner assembly begins to glow.

3. Once the igniter reaches the required current potential, the gas safety valve opens.

4. Gas is introduced into the manifold and you have ignition.

NOTE: It can take roughly 30 – 90 seconds from the time you press start to the time it takes for the gas to ignite.

If you are having problems with ignition, it may be something as simple as a bad igniter. Just because an igniter glows, does not necessarily mean it is good. They do become weak with age and if they do not draw the required current potential, they will not allow the gas safety valve to open. There are two basic types of igniters:

Carborundum (Cylindrical in shape) – needs to produce 2.5 to 3.0 amps for the gas safety valve to work.

Norton (Rectangular in shape) – needs to produce 3.2 to 3.7 amps for the gas safety valve to work.

NOTE: There is a UNIVERSAL FLAT BAR igniter on the market as well, that can be used as a substitute if the igniter type that came with your range is not available.
Your igniter appears to be the Norton type. The part number is 279311 and can be purchased at pcappliancerepair.com for about $22. Instructions should be included with the parts kit. NOTE: If the igniter connector plug does not match the one you have, there are instructions that explain how to cut and splice the connections using a set of ceramic wire lugs included with the kit. Do not use standard wire lugs as they will melt due to heat. CAUTION: Make sure you unplug the dryer and turn off the gas source prior to servicing.
If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please post back so I may be able to assist you better. I hope you find this information helpful. PS Use model number 110.76912690 for your search criteria.

Check the thermal fuse and thermostats first, then the ignitor and the valve coils are the next possibilities.

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.

I have a kenmore elite dryer model # 11070952990 that will not heat up, I replace the glow bar ignitor, I don't know what i'm missing.


Check the thermal fuse. You can temporarily bypass it by hooking its two wires together then see if it heats.

How do I change out the heating element on my kenmore oasis electric dryer model 110.67032600


Use a putty knife to press against NUMBER43.
This is a newer cabinet but basically busts down like an older one.f4825eb.jpg9b58516.jpgAfter the front is removed the dryer magically becomes exactly like this older model here: Cabrio dryer service manual. Similar to oasis.

I need the installation manual for a Kenmore Elite Oasis gas dryer. Specifically I need to know what water line attaches to the dryer (for steam), the hot or the cold?


Hello, Here's the link to view the owners manual and exploded view of the parts for your model. Once there, click on the exact model # you have (it's listed on your dryer's data plate) so you get the right one.
