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 out this electric no heat tip...

Their are 2 possibilities,based on exactly what is happeninh with your dryer.
1) If after the igniter came on,it stay on for 30 seconds to 1 minute and went off,but there was no flame as soon as the igniter went off? IF that is what your seening the coilds that open the gas valve are the problem. They are the 2 pod things on the top of the gas valve one of them has a plug with 2 wires on it,the other has a plug with 3 wires.IF no flame after the igniter went out those coils need to be replaced.

2) If the igniter came on and STAYED on and never went off within 1 minute?
for that since the igniter never turns off. The problem will be the flame switch. Its the black rectangle box mounted to the outside of the burner cone and has 2 wires attached to it.If the igniter did NOT go off the flame switch will be needed

The part numbers are,



The parts could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;

I hope i have been able to help you fix your dryer,

I have a kenmore gas dryer 110 it doesnt dry the clothes the burner goes on then of stays worm not hot check the fuse its ok the igniter works also dont know what else to check

if the flame is liting but stops after 15 to 30 minutes you have bad gas coils.if the flame is liting and clothes are not drying you have to clean out the dryer and the vent line.remove the vent line,if it's a long run to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,check the outside and make sure nothing is blocking the vent like a screen or cage,if there is remove it and don't put it back after you blow out the line,then clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,if filter is on top the duct is in the back,remove the front panel and vac out all the lint in the cabinet where the motor is.number one problem with dryers is lint build up,all a dryer does is move air,if it's clogged with lint your gonna have problems.send full model number next time and let me know how you make out,if you need more help let me know

I have a gas Kenmore Dryer 74202200 and it heats sometimes, moreso when it first comes on. The glow plug works and it clicks and it fires up, but then the fire shuts off and the glow plug comes back on a...

if it runs for the first 15 to 30 minutes and then no heat you have bad gas coils,located on top of the gas valve,when the coils heat up they fail,if you try to start it again after it sits for a long time it will lite again,also you could have a bad gas valve,try tapping the valve to see if it lites,if it does lite while you're tapping on it most likely it will be the valve,let me know what you find and send the model number.good luck

Kenmore propane dryer 70 series does not lite

Assuming the gas is on. The most likely problem is a bad ignitor. Remove the bottom front panel(pop 2 clips at the top of lower panel with a flat screwdriver) and turn the dryer on Look for the ignitor to glow. If the ignitor does not glow test leads to ignitor for power if you have power replace it. If the ignitor glows then you are not getting gas check to make sure the gas supply is on.
I hope this helps if you need further assistance please let me know.

Kenmore dryer 500 , model # 110.79522800 . electric igniter turns on and off while dryer is running.

does the flame lite?the ignitor should come on and then the flame lites and will stay on until the dryer reaches the right temp. then it shuts off,if the flame isn't liting no gas is coming in,bad gas coils will do this or the gas valve,most likely it's the coils located on top of the valve,take out the two phillips screws,remove the cover and change out the coils

Kenmore gas dryer igniting problem

check the flame sensor. it could be the problem since it would ignite first then if the flame sensor is mal functioning, it would indicate a "no flame" signal that would cut off the fuel solenoid. then it would shut it off.
