Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You're dryer needs a thermal fuse and or gas valve coils, and maybe an igniter all three are very simple and affordable to replace. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. Now, if this don't solve the problem you will need a gas valve coil kit. To replace coils just remove front of dryer body and look below drum you will see the gas valve. The valve coils are located on top of valve (two little round black cylinders). It's simple, just remove the two screws from the little metal bracket that holds them down, unplug the wires from them and just lift them straight up off of the valve. Take notice that one has 3 wires and one has 2 wires. Just replace with new coils and plug wires back in and re-fasten metal bracket. Your dryer will run like new, if it doesn't then you will need to check the igniter. The igniter is attached to the end of the burner assymbly by one screw and a simple two wire plug. Inspect for breakage, and replace if needed. Happy to help, Tim.

    Just like you said, it was the gas coils. Was able to pick it up for only $21.00 at Sears. You saved me a bundle, also thanks for telling me how to get to it, lifesaver !!

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.

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

Dryer wont turn


Yes, it will save you alot of money and work just fine. You will have to shut off the dryer, turn off the gas and/or electric(disconnect it to be sure it is power free). Look at dryer carefully as you may be able to access the belt from the lower front. The belt is easily available at Sears Parts Stores. Do not use it until fixed as it might overheat!

You may have had a wheel lock up on the dryer. This could cause the belt to break. Is the drum hard to turn? Is this a gas dryer? use this PAGE as a guide to help you get into the dryer and a lot more

Kenmore 80 Series Model #110.74842400 Series MR5112733


There's a few things on this dryer that can stop it
from heating. 1st thing your going to need is an ohm meter, your testing simply for continuity. The main items that cause no heat at all on this gas dryer is the igniter on the gas valve, the thermal fuse located on the blower wheel housing the thermal cut out located on the burner box or the flame sensor on the burner funnel and lastly the coils on the gas valve. the sequence is from most too least common. Of course unplug it and shut the gas off.
