Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

Kenmore Dryer only lights gas sporaticly

Appliance: Kenmore (Sears) Dryer
Model: 110.70602991

Note: Thank you in advance for any help with this issue.

Problem: In Permanent Press Cycle - Igniter Element will not glow and natural gas will not light at all, in Normal Cycle Igniter Element will glow then 3 loud clicks will be heard (sometimes) and natural gas supply will light for about 15-20 seconds but typically Igniter Element will glow NO loud clicks will be heard and natural gas supply will NOT light.

The only thing I don't know how to check is the very expensive Dryer Timer.

Item's I did clean and check:
- Cleaned Thermal Cut-off & Continuity (w/Ohm Meter) Good
- Cleaned Thermal Fuse & Continuity (w/Ohm Meter) Good
- Cleaned Holding/Boosting Gas Coil & Continuity (w/Ohm Meter) Good
- Cleaned Secondary Gas Coil & Continuity (w/Ohm Meter) Good
- Cleaned Igniter Element & Continuity (w/Ohm Meter) Good and functioning well
- Cleaned Radiant Sensor & Continuity (w/Ohm Meter) Good
- Cleaned Vents and Lint Trap

Note:
- No High Limit Thermostat Sensor on this model

Replace the igniter. The ignitor is the most comon problem with gas appliances checking continuity does not tell you if it is bad or not it has to draw a certain amount of amps to open the gas safty valve and the is no safe way to check this on most gas dryers

Lights flashing E2F2 on kemore dishwasher


Appliances branded with the Kenmore logo and sold through Sears are produced by other major manufacturers.
So First: Using the Sears Model Prefix Chart, find out which manufacturer produced your appliance to find the right repair information. Locate the model number on your appliance and match up the first three digits before the decimal point of the model number to find the manufacturer.

Then search the appropriate manufacturer Fault codes to diagnose (and hopefully fix) the problem

Gas dryer. won't heat. replaced ignitor sensor. still won't heat. seems that a valve is stuck closed (auto-valve), which is it? hold or ass't ?


The glow igniter should light up and after a delay the sensor will click and turn on the gas valve. If the gas doesn't flow and light the cycle will repeat.

Most likely you need a gas valve coil kit. The coils get weak and wont open the gas valve.

Kenmore 70 Series Dryer not heating and not cutting off


I had an identical problem to yours this weekend with my Kenmore dryer. There were 2 problems.

1. Timer was broken. Does not advance to "OFF" position on timed dry, however it still works for auto-dry.

2. Thermal fuse was blown. Upon replacing, dryer heated up normally.

I believe when the timer broke, the dryer had kept running and blew the thermal fuse. On Sears' website, thermal fuse is $5.30, timer is roughly $80.
