Question about Kenmore Dryers
If the burner assembly is not lighting I would recommend you look into an igniter replacement. If the igniter is worn, or does not work at all, the gas safety valve will not open and you'll never get ignition. The part number is 279311.
If the burner assembly lights, then goes out after a few minutes, I would recommend you replace the gas valve solenoids. There are two of them on the burner assembly. It is recommended that you replace BOTH of them at the same time. The part numbers are 69540 and 69539. Searspartsdirect.com has an excellent illustration of your dryer. Just type in your model number and look under the "Burner Assembly" heading. The igniter is listed as item 4. The solenoids are items 13 and 14.
If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.
