Watch the burner assembly, shortly after starting the dryer the ignitor should begin to glow. If it glows for several seconds (up to 15 seconds) and then goes out, then the problem is probably the solenoids (coils). If the ignitor glows and stays on, then the problem is usually the flame sensor.

Kenmore gas dryer 80series model 110.c72852101


if you hear the valve clicking but no gas the valve is bad.when the burner lights theres a probe that senses that it is lit and sends a microvoltage back to the controller to tell its lit.check to make sure all ground wires are grounded to a clean metal surface.

Will not stay lit,I have a new gas tank and it light the first burner but will not light others and will not stay lit


Turn off the propane tank and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes, reconnect the hose and turn the tank valve on very, very slowly, until it's completely open.

Now light each burner one a time and turn it to high. If the burners all light and the flames remain burning on high for more than a few minutes, you're back in business. Just remember to turn the tank valve on very, very slowly after turning it off each time.

If the above didn't solve the problem, are you sure you tank gas a significant amount of gas in it?
If that's the case (empty tank), when you replace it, do exactly what I said above when you connect a full tank to the grill hose.

Hope that solved your problem. Happy Grilling!

Burner not lighting/staying lit. Most likely the ignitor.

Gas will not stay lit on my Kenmore series 80 dryer..


If the ignitor is working properly (glowing visibly) and the burner will not light, then I would suspect faulty gas valve coils. These electrical coils are right above the gas valves and when energized, these solenoids open the gas valves and permit gas flow to the burner. If faulty the gas valves will not open and the burner cannot light. It is recommended that if any are suspected of being faulty, that both (all) be changed at the same time and they will likely come from the parts supplier as a set. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
