Question about Dryers

Open Question

My kenmore gas dryer (super capacity mod. 417 98042701) won't turn the gas on to get heat. This started with all the lights on the front flashing. This went on for a couple of weeks. The dryer

For the last 2 or 3 weeks the lights on the front would flash at random. The dryer would shut off before the clothes were dry. We would turn it back on and it would finish drying the clothes. Now it won't even turn the the heat on. The dryer runs and the blower works but it won't ignite the gas.

check the ignitor under the door panel on the left side of the burner if it gets red when you turn the dryer on.if yes than see if gas shoots out and yes than how long it stays on if in few minutes it turns off than need thermal fuse checked so let me know up to this point if it works or not .

ck/replace the 2 black coils on valve they will sometimes fail after 1st start up slight chance it may be flame sensor mounted on side of burner to ck remove the 2 wires and short together temporaily if flame stays on and reignites ckd vent system first bad flame may cause sensor to shut it off if flame/vent ok replace sensor

with a gas dryer in which your assured te hventing is free and clear of any obstructions, i would look to replace the coil pack located atop the gas valve itself, probably about $25 part number 279834... 2 coils simply mount atop the valvle

Most likely you need to replace the heating element that ignites the gas.just turn off the gas line unplug the dryer and remove the front cover then you will see on the bottom right there Is a heating element bolted to the gas valve with one single quarter inch bolt.You can either remove it and inspect it for little hairline cracks or check for continuity with a multimeter.If you see a crack or have no continuity replace the ignighet

No heat


make sure that the gas is turned on. if it is the next step is to check the fire chamber. it is a tube about 3in round. there is an igniter toward the front of the tube that when it calls for heat it glows bright red and then gas comes in the tube and it lights it up. if the igniter is not hot enough it will not light the gas. that means u need to replace the igniter.

Gas dryer will heat sometimes and not heat other times kenmore model 72802


sounds like bad gas coils,you have to send the whole model number,it will start with 110. or similar,if the bottom panel comes off,remove it,start the dryer, or in the front panel down near the bottom pop off the cover and look in,if the flame lights and then after 10 to 20 minutes the flame doesn't light you have bad gas coils.when the coils are starting to fail they will work correctly until they heat up and then they won't work until they cool down,the coils are what opens the gas valve.the coils are on top of the gas valve,remove the two phillips screws,pull off the cover,remove the wires from the coils and install the new coils,put it back together and you'll be fine,also while you're in there,get a shop vac and vac out the cabinet,stick it on blow and blow all the lint off of the motor and out of the gas tube,then clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into.if your vent line is a long run from the back of the dryer to the outside,i use a leaf blower remove the vent line from the back of the dryer and blow all the lint outside out of the line,do this once a year,you won't have any fires,your clothes will dry on time and your motor and parts will last longer

Dryer timer is not working and won't heat but runs fine


check the ignitor. That's a very common cause for no heat in a gas dryer. other possibilities are the coils, or it could be that you have a bad fuse in the dryer.
