I just diagnosed the same problem with my estate model by wirlpool. It is most likely the thermal fuse located in the back (behind the panel) It is a $12.00 part. My neighbor fixed his father's unit with same issue 2 weeks ago.

My Kenmore gas dryer mod 110.77522600 burner light when I first turn it on. After 4 mins. or so, it goes out. It will try to relight several time (igniter glows) but it never does.


This is usually the dryer coils have failed. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a video on replacing the dryer coils. If you need further help try this link for troubleshooting a gas dryer

if you hear the valve clicking but no gas the valve is bad.when the burner lights theres a probe that senses that it is lit and sends a microvoltage back to the controller to tell its lit.check to make sure all ground wires are grounded to a clean metal surface.

if it runs for the first 15 to 30 minutes and then no heat you have bad gas coils,located on top of the gas valve,when the coils heat up they fail,if you try to start it again after it sits for a long time it will lite again,also you could have a bad gas valve,try tapping the valve to see if it lites,if it does lite while you're tapping on it most likely it will be the valve,let me know what you find and send the model number.good luck

Kenmore gas dryer mod.110-73942. burner comes on as normal. After 5-10 minutes running Cycles off, igniter ( new) glows but no burner ign. Also replaced the sensor adjacent the igniter.


The gas valve coil is bad. When the ignitor is glowing the gas valve should open and allow gas in to be ignited. Change the gas valve.

Kenmore Gas Dryer won't heat!


On the back of the dryer near the fan blower housing is a thermal fuse, if this opens up ( no continuity ) the gas burner often quits but the motor will still run. If the thermal fuse is open/bad, always clean, change, adjust the venting system and vent hood first and clean out the dryers air ducts. Sometimes it is a good idea to replace the operating thermostat at the same time.
Thermal fuse parts help link...on blower housing cover, can not be re-set, must be replaced if is open (no continuity between pins).

No heat - Kenmore - model 75811


Correct - it is that simple. I just went through the same thing - not even 15 minutes ago. And, they are basically linear motor fields. The drive the cylinder (post they slip over) out, opening the valve, allowing gas flow.
