Question about Kenmore 74602 Gas Dryer

Kenmore Gas Dryer not heating. (74602)

Kenmore Large Capacity Gas Dryer Model 110.74602300 When my dryer has not been used for a while, it will start drying when first turned on. But soon afterwards, it will not heat. I have cleaned all duct work, verified the all temperature sensors are working. When the gas tries to turn on, the igniter glows and you can hear a vibrating noise (not buzzing) coming from the gas valve area. No gas comes on. I looked at the schematic and it indicates that the igniter should be 40 ohms. I unplugged mine and measured the igniter resistance and it was 100 ohm. (I have not measure coil resistance yet). Could this be the problem or could one of the coils be bad, even though they appear to work as least once when first turned on. Or is there something else wrong.

    I have the exact same problem with my gas dryer. I have an Amana Model No. PLG153LM. It appears to heat at first when turned on, then it goes cool very soon. It appears not to cut on heat while trying again unless the dry is left alone for a long period of time. Thomas

    I had a similar problem, but no clogging of the vent. I actually found a schematic under the control panel cover and started diagnosing the valves, igniter and safety switches. Everything looked good and there was actually ohm specifications on the supplied schematic. I moved on to the thermal fuse located on the duct which read 49 ohms of resistance. I purchased a new thermal fuse online for $3.45 including shipping and installed it. The dryer fired right up and is working properly. All I can figure for the failure is that the dryer is somewhat old and maybe the thermal fuse was weak....

Have a Maytag dryer, appears igniter is not working. Should the resistance be readable using a standard ohm meter? Or is it extremely high resistance giving the appearance of being open?

Kenmore gas dryer that turns but does not heat up


No heat at all? does the top of the machine heat up, but not the drum? could be your drum seal is damaged or slipped off.
If the firebox doesn't light up, could be your igniter, the unit's safety switch, thermocouple, or regulator; Your Gas Company may provide a service that would check it for you... some do.
