SOURCE: kenmore series 80 gas dryer will not heat up

Hi. this dryer has a set of coils that sit on top of the actual gas valve assembly. these coils activate the main and secondary gas valves and if the coil assembly is malfunctioning or, the wires and clips are corroded, the coils will not activate the gas valves to open and close. this malfunction will affect the heating process within this dryer unit.

I recommend inspecting the dryer coil assembly. use a mulitimeter to test for Resistance. you should get a reading of some type of current flow through the wires and, if this is the case, the coils are bad and they will need to be replaced.

This test is actually not needed. the non existing heat is a red flag on its own and, it greatly confirms a major failure within the coil assembly. replacing the coils will fix your dryer.

PLease rate and god bless:)

SOURCE: Kenmore gas dryer model #76812690 will not heat.

does the dryer heat initially when you first turn on the dryer Or no heat at all?

the first thing i would check is tthe thermal fuse thats located on the back of the unit. test it with a multimeter and see if it has continuity, if it doesnt then replace that and your operating thermostat. the check to be sure you venting to the outside of your house is not clogged

Srart by pulling each thermostat wires and tape them together until you find the bad one. You should have 3 of them to test.

SOURCE: I have a kenmore 70 series gas dryer. It won't

Check the thermal fuse and thermostats first, then the ignitor and the valve coils are the next possibilities.

Kenmore Gas Dryer does not dry clothes.


If this is the electric version then after 15 years you probably need a new heating element, they are not difficult to install and are not terribly expensive as a DIY project.

I've got a 75732 Model gas dryer and the tub won't spin. It has power (I can hear it turn on), but it won't tumble. Any help would be greatly appreciated


your belt should be replaced and you should ck the tensioner it is a flat spring with a plastic wheel on it the belt goes around the wheel on your motor and the tesioner takes up the slack. make sure to turn your power off first. It is not difficult to fix. Only replace the tensioner if the wheel on it is wobbly or sticking.
