Remove the two screws onder the dryer lint cover
slide a putty knife between top and cabinet
should feel a clip on each side,, just push in and pop it up
once the top is up on each side about an inch down where the front lips the sides you will see a 5/16 screw remove those
list the door up off the bottom dogs turn to the right and out of your way, carefull of the wires thats the door switch.
look right in front on the bottom to the right
there is your gas valve and coils
as you can see they are held down by two philips screws remove those and remove the cover
care ful to mark the nodes on the coils on has two one has three
replace one at a time makeing sure the orientation is correct,, two up three down whatever you had
DONT FORGET TO PLUG THEM BACK IN
back your way out of the machine your edaone

I HAVE A KENMORE 80 SERIES GAS DRYER. WHEN YOU TURN IT ON IT FIRES UP AND GETS HOT. AFTER A WHILE (5-10 MIN'S) FIRE GOSE OUT AND WILL NOT COME BACK ON.


Hello,
If what happens is the flame comes on when it first starts,after the flame goes off you see the igniter glows then goes off but no flame,the coils that open the gas valve are working while thier cool but once the dryer gets running,when warm to hot the gas valve coils wont open the gas valve so when the igniter comes on and no flame the coils have failed to open gas valve and need to be replaced, all manufactures use the same coil supplied by one parts supplier, and them not opening the valve when warm is a very common occurence regardless of what brand gas dryer it is.
The part number for the coils is 279834 they could be picked up from your local appliance parts store for under $20 or online at;

Cold dryer


if the dryer runs normal for the first 15 to 30 minutes you have bad gas coils located on the top of the gas valve,take out the 2 phillips screws,remove the top cover and change out the gas coils.when the coils are failing they will work until they heat up then they stop letting the gas come into the dryer,when they cool down then they will work again.change out the gas coils part number 279834

I have a kenmore #110.72812101 gas dryer. the burner comes on, then goes off after 2-3 min. is there a schematic online? thanks, jim


The 2 coils ( kit ) need to be replaced on the burner valve . One of them gets hot and opens ( shorts internally ) and wont work again , until dryer cools down for a while . Pt # 279834 . You can easily replace . 2 screws hold the coil bracket on . Don't even have to cut off the gas , or pull the dryer out from wall .
