KENMORE GAS DRYER - MYSTERIOUS HEAT PROBLEM

I've had this KENMORE GAS DRYER 110.73952 for about 4 years. Everything seems fine.. except sometimes it just won't heat... the gas does not ignight. The gas valve is open and i have not tripped a breaker/fuse... the setting are on HEAT.

This same exact issue happened a few months ago... after a couple weeks I was getting ready to call for repair... when just on a whim I turned it on.. and what do you know.... it worked fine.. heat with no problem. What is up with this dryer?? Any help is appreciated.

My dryer was 5 years old when this happened. It turned out there is a fuse in the dryer that needed replacing.

The unit just stopped heating and drying the clothes.The burner on my LP Kenmore dryer won't light, otherwise everything else works just fine. I've have taken everything apart and cleaned out all...


Generally, with a gas dryer, there is an ignition device that heats to a specific temperature and this causes the gas to ignite. When this electric ignition fails to work, the gas will not ignite and there will be no heat. I had this happen and had to call a professional. It was a simple matter of installing a new ignition device and it worked perfectly for years. I hope this helps! If it is a new dryer, check to see if this part might be covered under warranty

Hi,

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.

My drier does not heat at all , everything seems fine except it does not ignite.please help


Hi, thanks for the inquiry.

If it's a gas dryer, it's most likely a thermal fuse. Basically, the voltage has to go through the fuse before it goes to the ignitor.

If it's an electric, it's either the heating element or the thermal cut-off, most of the time.

Either way, it should only cost you about $90 to repair if it's a gas, and between $100 and $120 if it's an electric.

Best of luck :)

Frigidaire Gas Dryer not heating up. Other elements are all ok.


It sounds like your igniter is no good. At all costs, check the Fuse before anything else. It is usually accessed from the back of the unit.
