Check that the dryer duct at the back where it connects the dryer to the wall has not collapsed to restrict air movement to the house vent duct.

Check that the vent duct all the way to the outside of the house is not fully or partially restricted in any way.

Make sure the lint screen is clean.

Make sure there is no buildup of lint inside the dryer where the heat enter the drum.

You should be able to walk outside with the dryer running, and feel a blast of air exiting the dryer vent. If not, find the restriction.

A dryer warming up, and then shutting down is normally a sign of a restricted vent duct at some point in the system. Particularly if nothing is done, and the dryer heats up momentarily when the cycle is tried again.

Reply back your findings for further instruction or information.

Number 34 is the sensor strips located on the rear bulkhead inside the dryer. Clean them thoroughly with Windex or 409. Dryer sheets build a wax buffer on them sensors that moisture cannot penetrate.

The problem is with the 2 little circular black coils next to the ignitor. They need to energize before the gas valve can open. They tend to get weak over time. I am 100% sure this is your problem. Good luck :)

Gas dryer not maintaining heat. 70 Series Kenmore/Whirlpool 76722


Fuse is ok . Problem is the soils on the burner valve . If the dryer heats when started , the electricity goes thru the coils to open the valve . Once the coils get warm , 1 will open (short) until it cools back down . The coils can be replaced just by removing the front panel . Only 2 screws hold the coils in place . No turning off gas , dissasembling dryer .
