    The troubleshoot guide says there are 2 house fuses in the dryer circuit but they do not show on the wiring diagram or in the parts manual.

If your dryer has an access panel at the bottom front remove it.  Start the dryer in a cycle and watch the burner area. You should see the ignitor start to glow. After a few seconds of it glowing you should hear a click and the gas come on and ignite. If the ignitor does not glow, look on the top of the air duct to the left of the gas valve. You will see 2 temp sensors. One will be white with  2 small blue wires going to it.    UNPLUG THE DRYER NOW    Remove the wires and connect them together.   BE SURE THEY DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE 

Plug dryer back in and start dryer again and see if ignitor glows and burner lights. If it works now, you need a new thermal fuse. You also want to make sure the vent duct is not clogged with lint or the hose is not kinked.  I DO NOT recommend that you run the dryer with this bypassed. It is a safety mechanism.

If this is not the problem or your dryer is not front servicable, post back and i will try to walk you through the problem.

Kenmore 80 series dryer, no heat. blower works


Check to see if the glow bar is coming on first. If it isn't, it is probably the thermal fuse/ cutoff. It is a small white plastic piece on near the motor housing.

If it is coming on but not lighting the flame, then you probably need gas coils. They are the two cylinder shape black and white objects attached to the gas valve.

check outside drye vent where it goes through the wall they clog up with lint sometimes and force the escaping warm air to back up which causes sensor to give wrong reading if this is clogged just clear it till you feel the air coming through also check vent at bottom of dryer disconnect flex pipe and check for clogs there as well ..and always clear lint trap after every load

Kenmore Series 80 gas dryer, clothes take 3 hours to dry


Hello, This problem is going to be your safety valve coils...basically they get old and over time of heating then cooling develop a short when they heat up...It may appear the gas lights to start but then goes out until the safety valve coils cool back down. Here is a picture of the coils 57d5263.jpgThis The coils are mounted to the gas safety valve, This should solve your problem. Hope this helps, Please feel free to comment again if you have any further questions or concerns. Good Luck! Mike

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:)
