Question about Kenmore Dryers
Hello, I have a kenmore 80 series gas dryer, model 110.72822100. Should I be getting power when the machine is running, from both poles of the thermal heat sensor, with a test light? if not, does that mean the sensor is bad, or do the coils activate the sensor?
If your using a test light instead of a meter you shouldn't be trying to fix it at all.
what is it doing or not doing?

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.

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 series gas dryer-
Their is a flame sensor, an ignitor, and a pair of coils all wired together into one assembly.
Here is the heat control and duct fuse:
Check that fuse next to that control. If it is open the dryer gas assembly won't get any power.
