Question about Kenmore 74602 Gas Dryer
I have a kenmore gas dryer 110.70212990, I replaced the thermal fuse, worked for two days and stopped, how do I know for sure if it is the gas valve or the igniter
A bad thermal fuse will keep the gas valves from opening , therefor , no heat at any time . There will be no orange glow with a bad ignitor (used to lite the burner ) . Bad coils , the ignitor will glow and when the sensor clicks to cut off the ignitor , the coils should open to let the gas thru . Your dryer has a little peep hole you can remove to see the operation of the gas valve . Also , check the thermal fuse again ( or put the 2 wires togather to check) , disconnect the vent hose from the dryer and dry a load to see if dryes correctly .( Make sure you have good air flow at the dryer )The reason for this is because a dirty or clogged vent , not cleaning the lint screen vent hose kinked , or vent clogged from dryer to outside , will cause the thermal fuse to open .
