Question about Dryers

The unit runs but no heat.

My Kenmore model 11070802990 gas dryer was working fine yesterday. Today the dryer appeared to be running normally except the burner didn't fire up -no heat. I checked the settings -all are set as it was yesterday when I had heat. I checked the power and gas supply -both are on. ???

Your limit switch has tripped. You will find this small switch near the burner that is the size of a dime. Press the small button between the wires firmly to reset it.

There is a web site, appliance411.com, which helps to identify the age of major appliances. I have gone there and looked up your dryer, it appears to have been manufactured in April of 2000.

I have an Amana Designer Series Gas Dryer. It worked fine for more than 10 years. Suddenly, yesterday it still ran, but there was no heat. I opened the bottom panel while it was running, and...


Motor runs, but main burner will not ignite
1.heat switch set wrong---correct switch setting
2.defective timer or timer circuit---check timer wiring--replace timer motor or switch as needed
3.defective centrifugal switch in motor---clean switch or replace as needed
4.gas supply valve closed----open gas valve
5.inoperative solenoid coil---test coil for open circuit & the voltage to it
???
Pilot burner goes out
1.insufficient gas supply---- low gas pressure or clogged pilot filter or partially closed gas valve
2.carbon deposit on thermocouple tube---clean tube & check pilot burner for proper combustion
3.improperly adjusted pilot flame--adjust pilot flame until faint yellow tip begins to appear
4.faulty ignition or reset valve or thermocouple---replace

I smell gas when the dryer is running but not when it is not running. Is this normal?


No not normal. Have this checked out thouroughly for leaks. More specifically around the dryer coils and gas valve. Check the burner tube for rust holes. Any holes in the burner tube and it must be replaced.

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.

Gas......starts to heat then quits minutes later.


Problem is your gas solenoid coils. When they get worn they will open til they get out then shut. They will need to be replaced.

Part number 279834 replaces for most models.
