If the ignitor doesn't glow it could be broke it is vary fragile, and made of carbon, you might want to have a tech come out, if you can see it with a flash light it has 1 screw that holds it in place if you can get it out unplug it, take it to R.E.Michaels a supply house over the us if not look for an appliance co, that has parts and you have to get the one with the same plug and hold down. you can instal it your self but remember do not touch the carbon part, it is sensitive to the oils in your skin only handle with the hold down,, if you touch the caron as soon as it lights up it will break, no doubts in that----good luck

You have answered this question before but does the ignitor stay on during the drying cycle? Kenmore series 80, model 110 72822101 gas, It starts correctly, ignitor glows, gas ignites,run for 5 to 6 min....


Hi,
yes..

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...

Kenmore 80 series gas dryer has not heat


most of these dryers have a little plastic plug on the front, left side. pop that plug out and look inside after turning it on. you should see a red glow. if not, then your ignitor has broken. if you see a glow, then the problem is probably one of the two little coils on the gas valve. these coils will sense if there is something to light the gas [the red glow] and open the valve - if the coils are bad, they won't open the valve

Kenmore 80 series Gas Dryer


HI. you are correct. this dryer, although gas, is using a Glow igniter system. most older models used the snap igniter that clicks over and over to spark the burner but, this dryer is only 2 years old so, it should be outfitted with a glow igniter system. This igniter is powered by electricity.

It works in conjunction with a Flame sensor.

Dryer will not heat up


remove the plastic tab infront of the machine
start you dryer. look inside the hole to see if the igniter glows.
takes 20-30 secnds.
if it glows then move to the back side of the dryer
remove the screws an check the thermal fuse, for continuity is your tester has the beep sound wich is easier to use for newbies, try it no beep sound, no good.

but if it checks ok then you probaly have bad coils

also since you are looking onthe back make sure that the vent is not restricted, a restricted vent can cause blow back an shut the dryer off if the vent is not clearly open.

good luck!

Kenmore dryer does not heat


I have a kenmore series 80. Had the same problem...the fix was replacing the gas coils. The dryer would get hot for about 10-15min then nothing. The gas would stop firing but you could see the igniter glow over and over again. Hope this helps.
