Hi, You will need to change the coils on top of the gas valve. The y will over heat later in the cycle and not open the gas valve.
Change them and you will be good to go. Please let me know if this helps you ir if I can assist you further,

Thanks
Vic

No heat, ignitor goes on burner goes on sometimes and after short time goes out. ignitor goes back on, but no burner. what up


If the flame sensor is not returning a good signal, the gas valve is shut off as a safety measure. I surmise that in this situation, the igniter is programmed to fire for a time to flare off any accumulated gas from the initial attempt to fire up the burner.

Check for the following: adequate combustion air supply (make sure inlet vents are clear), proper exhaust venting, flame sensor properly positioned and not cracked or otherwise broken, burner holes are clean and not caked over with combustion deposits (if the flame is uneven and weak right where the flame sensor is located, it will be treated as a failed ignition).

In the worst case, the gas valve is defective and unable to detect the flame signal. It's also possible that a thermostat is sending an overheat signal, but that doesn't account for the igniter sparking a second time after the burner shuts off.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

The 'radiant sensor/ needs to be replaced. This sensor tells the system that the flame is lit and everything is good. Go to repairclinic.com

Either the venting needs cleaned or the coils on the gas valve are bad. Unhook the venting from the back of the unit and run. If works ok then clean venting. If you still have the problem, replace the two coils on top of the gas valve.

Kenmore Gas Dryer ignites then stops heating after ten minutes.


If the glow bar comes back on and the gas does not light,replace the gas valve coils. If the ignitor does not come back on,replace the flame sensor.

Flame shuts down after 5-8 minutes


AFTER THE BURNER SHUTS DOWN THE 1ST TIME IT SHOULD COME BACK ON WITHIN 1 TO 3 MINUTES. WHEN THE BURNER TRIES TO COME BACK ON YOU'LL HEAR A CLICK AND THE GLOW OF THE IGNITOR SHOULD BE VISIBLE. AFTER 30 TO 60 SECONDS IGNITOR SHOULD FADE AND THE BURNER SHOULD FIRE. IF IGNITOR FADES AND BURNER DOES NOT FIRE YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE BURNER COILS #279834. IF IGNITOR DOES NOT COME ON YOU WILL HAVE A T STAT OR SENSOR ISSUE. SOUNDS LIKE COILS TO ME. HOPE THIS HELPS PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTAT ME HUBAPPLIANCE@COMCAST.NET. PLEASE RATE MY RESPONSE.

Dryer does not heat up


First thing to check is the ignitor underneath the drum. (You have to open the panel to see it)  It should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the ignitor shuts off.  If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the gas valve coils may have to be replaced.  If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.
