Question about Dryers

1 Answer

My kenmore gas dryer model # 417.93042201 ignites and heats on initial start up, but doesn't reignite throughout the rest of a cycle. I have to stop the cycle and restart it in order to heat it up again. I feel that it is a bad thermostat, but don't know how to determine which one. Can anyone help me?

    Sounds like a bad cycle thermostat.

Why does gas valve not turn on after initial heating during the dry cycle.


The high temp limit switch will stop the valve from coming on. Whats very important for any gas dryer is the way its vented outside. DO NOT use an vent or cap that has any kind of screen on it. This will cause a build up of lint and restrict the exhaust gases casing the limit switch to trip.

Probably the motor behind the knob. I replaced mine in a Kenmore recently. No big deal for someone with average skills. Go to washer/dryer forums. Lots of them. This will have a ton of solutions. Try YouTube

Ignites on start up ,but after initial heat cycle will not ignite again until I shut down for a few minutes then restart.


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

Dryer doesn t get hot


it is going to be either the igniter for the gas or the heating element
you probably have an electric igniter. it is not igniting the gas to make the dryer heat i would definantly start with that

My Whirlpool Gas Dryer (MDL # LGR7648KQ1) is not drying properly. The unit will heat up initially but after a while it will not ignite. I've taken it apart and run it without the drum. It ignited...


Be sure the vent is totaly clear.if the t-stat(s) heat up from lack of air flow the heat will not return until the t-stat is cool enough.Running without the drum in place will also heat up the sensor(s).This is a very common problem.

Kenmore 72602100 gas dryer runs but no heat


gas dryers would have an igniter to start the flame. check it first to see if its still ok. be carefull in handling them, they are very fragile. check also for availability of gas. could have a closed valve.
