Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

Our Kenmore gas dryer heats up when we first turn it on, but after it cycles off, and then it's time to fire up again, it won't fire up. The glow light gets hot, but no gas. If we let it cool off for 15 minutes, then it works again, but only for one cycle of heating (10 minutes).

Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You're dryer needs 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. Happy to help, Tim. And please don't forget to give me your rating for my help. Thanks!

Intermittant heating.It will begin to glow....sometimes the flames shoot out for a short time....but then go out. Then, it will continue to glow red without flames igniting,then goes dim....couple minutes...


This is usually caused by faulty coils on the heat valve. they can be purchased seperate from the gas valve and are relatively easy to install..

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 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.

Does the ignition glow when you start the dryer? if so you have power to gas valve and ignition system. if not you may have an open thermostat or thermalfuse.

If the ignitor just sits there and glows all day, you have other problems, It could be a gas valve, or ignitor sensor.
