Question about Kenmore 94072 Gas Dryer
There are two gas control solenoids on the dryer. If the igniter is glowing that does not mean that it is not bad. One solenoid opens when the igniter is fully heated and the other opens when the door is closed and dryer is running. The igniter may not be reaching the full temp to open th solenoid or the other solenoid may not be working. First you should make sure the gas on the dryer is on and not restricted. Make sure the gas connector is not kinked and the line/regulator screen or free from debris. Give the appliance regulator at tap with a wrench(may be sticking). When the gas solenoids are getting power they will be magnetic at the top. When you touch a piece of metal to the top of them they should be magnetized. You could also tap the solenoids lightly(they could be sticking). The hot surface igniter can be tested with a ohm meter or you can take it to an appliance parts store and sometimes they will test them for free. Sounds like it could be a bad gas solenoid valve.
