Kenmore 90 series gas dryer no heat

The gas ignitor most likley is not functioning. They do not have a pilot light like appliances in the oold days. They must ignite a new flame each use. if you don't smell gas when you try and use, then it is the ignitor and the computerized sensor tells the gas not to turn on because the initial flame has not been created.

Kenmore elite gas dryer he3 model 110.95862402 won't heat

Since it is gas, you need to find out if the ignitor is coming on to ignite the gas (if you have gas getting to the burners). If you have gas, but the ignitor is not coming on, then you have to determine if the electronic contol is sending a signal for the ignitor to ignite. The most likely cause is the ignitor

Will not dry clothes

How old is the dryer? The ceramic ignitor piece may have partially broken off. It gets very brittle over the years. Look for a broken piece laying below where it sits. If you replace it, do not touch the ceramic part of the ignitor or it will not work right. Sometimes it's just as simple as a corroded wire connection. I once worked on a 25 year old Kenmore gas dryer that would not ignite. With the power cord unplugged, I disconnected and reconnected all the wire terminals inside and tried it again it worked perfectly like it was new.

Kenmore propane dryer 70 series does not lite

Assuming the gas is on. The most likely problem is a bad ignitor. Remove the bottom front panel(pop 2 clips at the top of lower panel with a flat screwdriver) and turn the dryer on Look for the ignitor to glow. If the ignitor does not glow test leads to ignitor for power if you have power replace it. If the ignitor glows then you are not getting gas check to make sure the gas supply is on.
I hope this helps if you need further assistance please let me know.

Gas dryer ignitor not activating

You have to use a voltmeter to test the circuit. You must connect a voltmeter to the leads that go to the ignitor, and then start the dryer. If the ignitor is getting 120 volts, but not lighting, then you need a new ignitor.

If you do not feel comfortable doing this test, you could simply replace the ignitor and hope its the problem
