Question about Kenmore Dryers
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.
