No Heat on Kenmore Gas Dryer Model 417

I have a Kenmore Gas Dryer Model 417, but has no heat. I saw the heat element turn-on then off, but the gas is not kick-in.
Switch set for High Heat, Air flow is good.
please help and if need part, then what's the part number.

I suspect the device which switch the gas is bad. If so, how I can change this device. I have to peek on the back of the dryer and see the heat element, but I can't to this area. This is locate din the front of dryer, but I can't see the bult to open on the front. Please Help !!!

Thank You very much

Hi, You need to change the coils on the top of the gas valve. This is a very common problem with the newer gas dryers. We have them for $29.95 on out web site www.whilpoolpartssurplus.com
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Thanks
Vic

Hello, My Kenmore 70 serie (model 110.72712101), will not heat up. Cleaned filter and exhaust vent. Any suggestions will be of great help. Thanks!


The ignitor is probably bad not aloowing the gas valve to come on and ignite the gas to heat the dryer. The ignitor is a flat bimetallic element that heats up when the dryer is turned on to light the burner to heat the dryer. It is usually located in the lower left section of the dryer near the burner assembly. It has two wires usually white going to it with a plug in connector on the end.

My gas dryer runs but no heat.


Most gas dryers use a surface-type ignitor, a ceramic element with traces that glow to ignite the gas and yours has failed. BTW, it's helpful to give model numbers so we don't have to guess.

Kenmore elite dryer no heat


You may want to check if the heating element needs replacing. Most Dryers have 2 heating elements that are found by taking the back off, some of the newer dryers have 3.

Dryer tumbles won't heat


The problem could be related to one of the following; Not enough power from the house, a bad or broken heating element, a bad thermal fuse, or a brake in the wiring.

Solution
Check the house voltage for 220-240
Do a continuity test on the heating element.
Do OHM reading on thermal fuse.
Check wiring to heating element.

I have the same AEG T57800 dryer.  Problem, no heat. Couldn't find a service manual anywhere on the net. Checked for fuses and saw none. Thermostats on heater appeared fine, showing current flow. Replaced heating element 112 54 84 41/8, via local dealer - Respond Services from Electrolux UK in Durham DL5 6ED (£68), still no heat.  Called service tech who replaced the PCB - 973916012018008 (£135 + £85 callout charge). Very, Very annoyed at this as the dryer is only 3.5 yrs old.
