Question about Kenmore Dryers
This could be one of the following:
* Defective ignitor. Suspected when ignitor fails to glow at all. Confirm by testing for 120v at the ignitor terminals. If present, ignitor is bad. Otherwise, suspect the flame sensor.
* Failed gas valve or holding valve coil. Run ohms check on each valve. May also need to actuate each valve with a test cord since that may only fail after being actuated a couple of times.
* One of the thermostats are open. Run continuity check.
* Bad flame sensor. If flame fails to ignite at all and the ignitor does is not getting 120v, suspect the flame sensor.
If you are not comfortable performing these checks, call in a repair person to check these components.
Hope this helps.
