Check to see if ignite is glowing and then goes back out. If it does, it probably needs a set of burner coils. If it glows but doesn't go out, it probably needs a flame sensor. This is box on side of burner tube.

Older Kenmore dryer model 86568110 wont start, i can see the heat element glowing but after pushing start button nothing happens.

Sounds like a broken belt. Do not continue to turn the dryer on until belt is replaced. With no air blowing over them, could overheat and cause a fire or burn them out.

Kenmore HE3T gas dryer . Does not heat. We have changed the thermal fuse. Ignitor lights up, sounds like it wants to fire than shuts down. After about the 5th try , did fire and heat briefly and now again...

most probably the coils on the gas valve are weak ( bad ).  these are sold in a set and replacing them is not hard.  make sure bot gas and electric are off when you do this fix..  safety first.

Dryer is making a weird light ticking sound.

It could be the heating element cooling off.

Kenmore electric dryer won't start

The first thing I would check would be the door switch. Dryers operate on 220 volts. Many brands split the 220v into 110v for controls and motor and 110v to the heater. There are also safety systems on many brands that won't allow the heater to come on if the fan motor is not running and blowing air throught he element to prevent overheating and dryer fires. If the door switch is ok, check the belt. If the belt is ok, it could be a problem with the motor start switch. The motor start swith is complicated fix and should be done by a professional. ALWAYS BE SURE TO DICONNECT THE POWER BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY REPAIRS.
