Question about Kenmore 84052 Dryer
There are 2 coils that spark the igniter to light the flame. If the spark isn't consistently hot enough, the igniter won't alway fire, thereby leaving you with damp clothes. Although the igniter occasionally fires, it turns on and off throughout the drying cycle. Replacement of the coils (look like 2 round 1" thick disks sitting on 2 poles) should get you back up and running again.
By the way, you are probably smelling some gas coming from the dryer, this is unburned gas when the igniter doesn't fire. Best of luck.

There might be many reasons that could cause a gas dryer from heating. All the reasons listed are :-
1. Glow Bar Igniter ( Main Reason ).
2. Thermal Fuse ( Not all Models ).
3. Coils on the gas valve
4. Gas valve
6. Motor heat switch
Check the above and it would fix the issue.
Hope i helped you.

Get the following checked...
1. Tune Up Kit
A tune up kit has the 3 parts that generally have to be replaced every 5 year or so. The kit has a new belt, new idler puller, and new drum support rollers. It is even complete with instructions on how to do the replacement.
2. Element Kit
Comes with terminal adapters as well as the element.
3. Thermal Fuse
In the later models you will find that there is a short element in the lower half of the burner box which also houses the thermal fuse which may occasionally need replacing.
4. Gas Dryer Igniter
If your dryer isn’t throwing any heat you should check the igniter to make sure it hasn’t stopped working. It’s a quick and easy fix.
5. Gas Valve Coil Kit
Repair your gas valves for a fraction of the cost of replacing.
