If your dryer has a bottom kick plate pull it off and the gas solenoids are on the left side can’t miss. If you don’t have the kick plate the front of the dryer must come off. The whole front will come off very easy just lift the top up from the front and the remove two screws on each side hold the front on and lift the front up and off be careful of wire’s to the door.

THE SOLENOID IS A REPLACEABLE PART ONLY. GET YOUR
MODEL # AND PURCHASE A SET OF SOLENOIDS IF YOU ARE SURE THAT IS THE PROBLEM. THE INSTALLATIONS INSTRUCTIONS SHOULD BE IN THE PACKAGE.

BE SURE YOU CHECK FOR A BAD THERMAL FUSE, CYCLING THERMOSTAT, HIGH LIMIT THERMOSTAT, BAD
TEMPERATURE SWITCH, MOTOR CENTRIFUGAL SWITCH, TIMER, AND RADIANT SENSOR. THEY ALSO WILL CAUSE A NO HEAT CONDITION.

Kenmore Gas Dryer not heating


Find the gas solenoid and tap it with a hammer while the dryer is running, if the heat starts then the solenoid should be replaced.
It is usually behind an access panel along the bottom of the unit.

My kenmore 750 series gas dryer wont heat


Here is the problem I think you have. Weak aged solenoids.
If a dryer produces some heat then their are 2 scenarios. It is clogged with lint, or the gas operator solenoids are getting hot and failing.Here is 2 of my home made videos. One shows basically before and after clean up and the other shows how to check and replace them coils:

Kenmore Elite He3 gas dryer (110-92832100) not heating. Igniter glows red for a min or so, drum spins, hear a loud 'buzzing' noise....


The problem could be flame radiant sensor or in most cases the gas valve solenoid coils sitting on top of the gas valves. The radiant sensor must be aligned perfectly with the igniter. The radiant sensor contacts bypasses one of the gas valve solenoid coils and as the igniter heats up it makes the sensor contact trips unbypassing the coil and allowing the gas to flow and be ignited.

The problem is with the solenoid coils,
one with 2-prongs and the other has 3, if the radiant sensor is aligned with igniter and working perfectly but no gas is ignited. The buzzing sound is coming from the coils trying to operate the valves. Replacing both coils is the simple and only viable solution.

What do I do if the gas coils are bad on my HE3 Kenmore gas dryer 92132100? The igniter glows.


There are two gas control solenoids on the dryer. If the igniter is glowing that does not mean that it is not bad. One solenoid opens when the igniter is fully heated and the other opens when the door is closed and dryer is running. The igniter may not be reaching the full temp to open th solenoid or the other solenoid may not be working. First you should make sure the gas on the dryer is on and not restricted. Make sure the gas connector is not kinked and the line/regulator screen or free from debris. Give the appliance regulator at tap with a wrench(may be sticking). When the gas solenoids are getting power they will be magnetic at the top. When you touch a piece of metal to the top of them they should be magnetized. You could also tap the solenoids lightly(they could be sticking). The hot surface igniter can be tested with a ohm meter or you can take it to an appliance parts store and sometimes they will test them for free. Sounds like it could be a bad gas solenoid valve.

Kenmore dryer heats up at first and I can see the flame, then after about 1 minute the flame is gone.


On a gas dryer, if the ignitor is working and the gas lights and then goes out after a short period of time and the ignitor continues to operate, then check the gas valve coils. These electrical coils are right above the gas valves. When these solenoids are energized, they open the gas valves and permit gas to flow to the burner. They can be tested with a multimeter for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad solenoid. If found faulty it is recommended that both (all) be replaced at the same time. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Kenmore Gas dryer Model# 11070202990 Will not heat but turns on and spins


The number one problema with a gas dryer is usually those intermittant solenoids mounted on the gas valve. If you have no igniton then the first thing I would look for is a blown duct fuse. Mounted on the back side of the dryer on the filter housing near the blower it looks like this:
