Question about Kenmore Dryers

1 Answer

Kenmore Gas Dryer won't heat!

I have a kenmore evenheat gas dryer, model # 110.73932102.
it runs but does not heat. I replaced the following parts already:
• High limit Thermostat
• Thermal Fuse
• Thermistor
• Fabric Care Temperature Switch

After all of those parts were replaced I was getting the ignitor to glow red, then the gas to turn on and would run for about 1 minute and then shut off. I noticed that as soon as I could not keep my fingers on the exhaust pipe it would shut off (it would get too hot).
I went to the sears parts store and they were baffled. They suggested I test and replace the following parts:
• Both Coils
• Flame Sensor

I replaced both and now the gas does not even come on. I first noticed this after I replaced the coils. I put the old coils back on, still nothing. Then I replaced the Flame Sensor.
I'm about to buy a new dryer at this point. Just bummed that I've sunk so much time and money into this already.

PLEASE HELP! My wife is getting very frustrated as well.. :)

ps - about 2 years ago I had to replace the Thermal fuse and it did the trick.

    i've already replaced the Thermal Fuse. Still no luck.
    I might have switched the wires when I replaced it - can't remember how it was on there. I've tried it both ways and it didn't seem to make a difference. Currently I have the red wire on the left and the red/white wire on the right.

    I've throughly cleaned all the vents and am running the dryer now with the back vent unattached.

    still no dice.

On the back of the dryer near the fan blower housing is a thermal fuse, if this opens up ( no continuity ) the gas burner often quits but the motor will still run. If the thermal fuse is open/bad, always clean, change, adjust the venting system and vent hood first and clean out the dryers air ducts. Sometimes it is a good idea to replace the operating thermostat at the same time.
Thermal fuse parts help link...on blower housing cover, can not be re-set, must be replaced if is open (no continuity between pins).

Dryer will not run


Is your dryer an evenheat dryer? It will say evenheat above the timer. Can you give me a model #? The problem is either an evenheat board or a heat relay. Relays cheap, boards not. Easy to fix. Let me know. thanks Dave www.washermd.com
