It is located on the front of the gas burner inside the cone where the flame comes out It is very fragile, do not touch it with your fingers except the white base. and don't bang it around or you will be buying a new one. older machines it was easy to get to because the all had a kickplate to pop of for access many new ones you have take the whole front off the machine to get to it

Most of the gas dryers have everything accessible by simply releasing the spring clips atop the toe panel and getting it out the way.

Can you look inside the door for your model number. I believe the problem is either a defective igniter or defective solenoid coils that open the gas valves=> 279834 Gas Valve Solenoid Set

The dyer is working, but the dyer is not blowning any hot air


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.


check out this electric no heat tip...

Dyer heats up for about 1 minute then, no more heat.


Check the timer , the unit is shutting off when the timer is malfunctioning. If so replace the timer after trying to bypass to confirm that the gas supply is not cut off.

Dyer is not heating up.it turns on and runs but it just does not heat up i took off hose and clean . also looked in back of dyer by taking off clover to look for fuse please help .


Kenmore dryers have what we call a thermo fuse, usually on top on the burner area - I would check continuity on this unit and replace if nesessary.
If the thermo fuse is okay and dryer heats up with gas, check your igniter and/or gas unit coils.
If dryer heats up with electric elements check continuity at both element ends and/or high limit thermostat.

GOOD LUCK!
