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 I use a 3 prong dryer cord on the Kenmore Elite Oasis dryer?


Most dyers are 220V. If the chord is connected to three terminals as most dyers have, then it would work just fine. Just be sure you connect the ground wire correctly.

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!

Are the coils getting voltage do you know? Or you can check the thermal fuse to see if its open.

Kenmore 67082 "PF" power failure code


Check your circuit breaker. Reset it even if it doesn't look tripped. It is a dual switch and sometimes you can't tell if one of them is tripped. Then try it. When you reset the breakers leave them off for about 10 minutes before turning them back on.
