Dryer works and tumbles but does not heat

My dryer suddenly stopped heating to dry. I checked the gas tank and it is full. My model # 26 52212 front loading tumble dryer. I read the troubleshooting guide and it mentions that it could be a fuse that has blown out but I dont know where the fuse is located. Please help.

First, you must remove the front panel. Open the door and remove 2 screws on each side of the opening; 2 in the door hinges and 2 directly opposite from them. Then close and latch the door and pull on the top corners of the panel and it pivots down, then lift off the bottom brackets. Then start the dryer (making sure it's not set for air fluff or no heat) and watch the ignitor to the left side of the burner tube. Report back if it glows or not. Also you might include the first two numbers of the serial number so I can make sure we're talking about the same series machine.

  • Get on with replacing the gas valve coils shown to you in the previous link, it will take care of your problem.
  • There are two house circuits/fuses in an electric dryer's circuit.
    If one of them is tripped/blown, the drum may turn, but the heater will not operate. Reset the circuit breaker or replace the house fuse.
  • Outlet wired incorrectly.
    Have a qualified electrician verify that the supply voltage is correct.
  • Gas supply valve to a gas dryer is not open.
    Open the gas supply valve. See Installation Instructions for details.
  • LP gas supply tank is empty or there has been a utility interruption of natural gas.
    Refill or replace the LP tank. Call your natural gas utility company.
  • Dryer does not have enough air supply to support the gas burner.
    The dryer needs space around it for proper ventilation. Do not stack or place laundry or throw rugs against the front or back of the dryer. See Installation Instructions for details about installing a dryer in a closet or alcove.
  • Incorrect cycle or temperature has been selected.
    If the Air Fluff cycle or temperature is selected, the dryer will tumble without heat. Each cycle ends with a Cool Down period during which the load tumbles without heat. Check the location of the indicator on the Cycle Selector knob.

No heat in kenmore 97273100 72731 front load gas cloths dryer


check the ignitor under the door panel on the left side of the burner if it gets red when you turn the dryer on.if yes than see if gas shoots out and yes than how long it stays on if in few minutes it turns off than need thermal fuse checked so let me know up to this point if it works or not .
