First check the white plastic thermofuse on the vent housing, if this is open (meaning an electrical open) it kills the heat circuit on the gas dryers if the air flow from the dryer is blocked to the outside. If it tests good on your ohm meter check the igniter on the gas valve assembly to see if it is open otherwise, as it could be broken. Be sure to remove the wires from the fuse and un-plug the igniter to test them and this is with the dryer un-plugged also. If those both check out, then check the flame sensor at the same time as the coils on top of the gas valve. Whatever part is bad, simply replace. You should be able to order all of the parts from repairclinic.com and if replacing doesn't help, return the part within 30 days. Let me know how this turns out.

I have Kenmore 80 series dryer. The drum is not tumbling, but the belt is fine. It heats up and the vent still blows. Help!


Does it sound like the motor is starting? If the belt is good, but the drum won't spin, it sounds like the motor is gone or the drum has seized.

You have answered this question before but does the ignitor stay on during the drying cycle? Kenmore series 80, model 110 72822101 gas, It starts correctly, ignitor glows, gas ignites,run for 5 to 6 min....


Hi,
yes..

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes 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 differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

Dryer wont turn


Yes, it will save you alot of money and work just fine. You will have to shut off the dryer, turn off the gas and/or electric(disconnect it to be sure it is power free). Look at dryer carefully as you may be able to access the belt from the lower front. The belt is easily available at Sears Parts Stores. Do not use it until fixed as it might overheat!

You may have had a wheel lock up on the dryer. This could cause the belt to break. Is the drum hard to turn? Is this a gas dryer? use this PAGE as a guide to help you get into the dryer and a lot more
