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.

Gas dryer will heat sometimes and not heat other times kenmore model 72802


sounds like bad gas coils,you have to send the whole model number,it will start with 110. or similar,if the bottom panel comes off,remove it,start the dryer, or in the front panel down near the bottom pop off the cover and look in,if the flame lights and then after 10 to 20 minutes the flame doesn't light you have bad gas coils.when the coils are starting to fail they will work correctly until they heat up and then they won't work until they cool down,the coils are what opens the gas valve.the coils are on top of the gas valve,remove the two phillips screws,pull off the cover,remove the wires from the coils and install the new coils,put it back together and you'll be fine,also while you're in there,get a shop vac and vac out the cabinet,stick it on blow and blow all the lint off of the motor and out of the gas tube,then clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into.if your vent line is a long run from the back of the dryer to the outside,i use a leaf blower remove the vent line from the back of the dryer and blow all the lint outside out of the line,do this once a year,you won't have any fires,your clothes will dry on time and your motor and parts will last longer

Kenmore model#110.72702101 starts up,heats then burner stops won't relite


Hello,
If what your seeing is that the flame starts out and goes off and a few later later the igniter glows but no flame??? then the cause of that is going to be the coils on the gas valve are weak and not opening. This tip i wrote explains what is wrong when a gas dryer starts heating but after a while wont heat. http://www.fixya.com/support/r10174506-gas_dryer_starts_off_hot_but_after_while

The dryer heats up at first but the burner won't ignite after it cycles off. The ignitor comes on but no flame. I changed the rear thermostat on the vent housing but that did not resolve the problem.


you have bad gas coils.when they are starting to die the dryer will run normally for the first 10 to 30 minutes and then no flame,the coils work fine until they heat up then nothing.when they cool down you'll have a flame again.easy fix,the coils are on top of the gas valve,take out the two phillips screws,remove the metal cover and change out the coils,that's it part number 279834.let me know how you make out
