SOURCE: Kenmore 70 Series

Unplug and turn off the gas feed. The fuse is located in the back of the series 70 attached to the lint housing near the bottom. About 1-1/2 inches long. Easy to remove, only two contact wire attachments. Note which wire goes where. Under $10.00 at an appliance parts store. Start with this fix.

If still no heat take out the ignitor assembly, located in the front, lower left. It is attached to the base of the dryer by 3 screws, the gas feed and two electrical wires with removable metal attachments (note which attachment goes where). The entire assembly will come out and the ingitor is attached to the front end. I took mine to the appliance parts store and it tested OK so it was the fuse. The owner helped me locate the fuse and suggested I try this first. The ignitor coil is about $25.00.

Both of these were easy enough for a novice (like me) to do. It saved a lot of money.

While the dryer was open I vacuumed out all the dust and lint and checked the integrity of the belt.

Good luck.

Kenmore elite gas dryer won't heat.I tested thermal fuse, high limit thermostat, thermistor and gas valve. All within spec or have continuity.


Hello Chuck,
In addation to what you have checked here is a list of what else to check

Flame switch...black box on burner tube...check for continuty

Ignitor...check for 120 vac too it

Timer/control board heat relay..on models w/timer check for contunity in heat circuit on timer. ON models w/control check that heat relay on board is closing and has continuty

Motor switch..check that heat circuit is closed and has continuty when motor is running and motor switch has closed for heat circuit(the start winding switch on motor will be open when running)

WARNING..WHEN PLUGGED IN FLAME SWITCH WILL BE LIVE ALL THE TIME AND SHOCK YOU WHEN TOUCHING..BE SURE TO DISCONNECT POWER BEFORE CHECKING

Since you are already this far you have some knowledge of how you dryer works. What is wrong now is the heat sensor that picks up that the pilot is on. The pilot should burn at a steady flame when you turn the dryer on to heat this in turn heats a probe next to the piolit this is a type of heat sensor. When the probe or heat sensor senses heat it tells the gas valve that its okay to turn on. Have a great day and hope this helps.

Kenmore Elite 110.7208201 won't heat up.


Hi

Please check the things that could stop a electric dryer from heating:
- House fuse or breaker (needs two of them), heating element, burnt wire, thermostat(s), thermal fuse (not all models), motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, burnt power cord/plug.
And also check the things that could stop a gas dryer from heating if you have a gas dryer:
- Glow bar igniter, thermal fuse (not all models), coils on the gas valve, gas valve, thermostats, motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, sensor.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Kenmore elite dryer no heat


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.

Kenmore elite smartheat quitpak electric dyer


Hello talee725. the dryer has heat sensors located throughout. One at the air intake & exchaust of the heating element including the air exchaust of the drum. Disconnect the AC power, close the gas valve is gas powered, clean them and check the sensors with a DVM in the ohm scale for open ckt. They are usely round in shape with 2 wires connected. If test open call a local appliance parts/repair center for price and stock.
