Question about Kenmore 75944 Gas Dryer
Wall socket is good,
Must be the control thermostat. Note: them coils only stay on a brief period of time. They do not stay on indefinitely. The duration depends on how many wet clothes are in the dryer etc. The least amount of resistance to heat the quicker they shut down. The way it works is temp is maintained between 140f and 105f by doing a series of burns for breif amount of time. The coils do not remain on for very long. If they did the clothes would burn up. You need to remove inspect and clean the filter chute. Probably clogged. The dryer must be put back together for testing with damp clothes in the drum and the door closed.

90% of all gas dryers lighting intermittently is resolved with new coil packs on the gas valve. The coils are replacable fairly easily and inexpensive.

If it's gas, the coil valves get weak and are unable to hold themselves open when hot. First, check the exhaust vent. If it's clogged, it can't remove heat and it will shut off prematurely. Most likely the coil valves though.

SOURCE: Kenmore Dryer will not heat
Does the limit switch have a reset button on it or is it an auto reset? Have you tried depressing the reset button on it if it is a manual reset? Have you checked your voltages to the gas valve, ignitor to make sure they are being called to come on? Trace your electrical connections from your electronics to these items. If they are not being told to come on, then you know it is the electronics. Also, have you checked the continuity of the door switch, and the ignite? These are all suggestions that must be ruled out before replacing parts.

Yes. If the thermal fuse has no continuity, then the fuse is bad. Replacing it should get you back in action, barring any other defective items like the heating element, etc. Best wishes.

SOURCE: gas dryer heat is intermediate
does the igniter glow white or orange? if it is orange you need to replace it. has to be white hot to ignite. if the igniter is white it could be the coils not opening the gas valve all the time - an intermittent problem.
