My instinct on this one is to look for a thermal cutout and to try to reset it.

Not familiar with the layout of the Kenmore 110's (they're not marketed in this part of the world), but a good place to start is probably inside the top of the machine.

Before fiddling, turn the power off and unplug the machine.

Look for a metal duct leading into the drum housing. This will probably have the blower mounted at one end, then the element embedded in it, then, before it leads into the drum housing, a collection of thermostats and safety cutouts (usually one or two of each) mounted on the outside of it.

Safety cutouts and thermostats are likely to look something like one of the pictures at http://www.tdspares.co.uk/products.asp?cat=68

Start by looking for cutouts with reset buttons - press the button on any you find and see if this fixes the problem. It's a good sign you've found the right one if it clicks when pressed.

If that doesn't work, use a multimeter to test across the contacts of each thermostat and cutout in turn. They should all have a very low resistance. reset or replace any that don't.

Once you've got the machine working again, you need to find out what made things trip and eliminate the underlying problem. This is usually a matter of cleaning all the accumulated lint out the machine.

Good luck.

SOURCE: kenmore gas dryer after 5 to 10 min. later no more heat

Yup, shortly after I posted this question I was able to find that it was indeed the valve coils. Very easy to get to and replace. Cheap too! Got both of them for about $20 thru www.appliancepartspros.com. Same parts would have cost about $70 thru Sears direct.

Patrick, they are located on the burner unit under the drum in the front left. You can get a diagram of the burner unit by looking up Parts for your model # at Sears.com.

Only tricky thing is you may need to have someone help hold the tumbler in place when you put the belt back on the motor. Personally I found it easier to use two hands to manipulate the belt around the motor and tension bracket and have my wife hold the drum in place rather than to try and balance it myself.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Kenmore gas dryer not getting hot enough

Have you checked the lint trap and also the vent hose? If you have yet to do that try it. Also make sure that the vent line is not crushed. It needs to be wide open

I have a Kenmore gas dryer purchased in 1989 which shuts off half-way through the cycle. This is a heavy duty, soft heat unit, model #110 87874800 serial #MX0816640.


Your motor is overheating and shutting off on the limit switch. You should check the vent hose, it needs thorough cleaning. Also, you must take the front panel off and vacuum the inside of the dryer and around the motor. It may be too late for the motor but you have a chance. If you have an air compressor, it is best to blow high pressure air into the motor to get thorough cleaning.
keeping the vent and inside of the dryer clean can reduce drying time by more than 50% and operating cost by as much as $20.00 per month

Kenmore 70 series model #97573200/stock # 75732. It's a gas dryer with an electric igniter. The problem is, dryer runs but there is no heat. I'm thinking there's a problem with the igniter? ...


if the ignitor is lighting up, the problem is going to be in the coils that are attached to the gas valve itself, heres what they look like http://www.applianceaid.com/images/2coilsgenaralgas.JPG

Kenmore gas dryer that turns but does not heat up


No heat at all? does the top of the machine heat up, but not the drum? could be your drum seal is damaged or slipped off.
If the firebox doesn't light up, could be your igniter, the unit's safety switch, thermocouple, or regulator; Your Gas Company may provide a service that would check it for you... some do.
