The Kenmore 110 87880800 gas dryers starts up, ignites the gas initially, then 15 min later the dryer stops heating but continues to turn the drum. If we let the dryer sit for 20 min and turn it back on,...


Hello,
Your dryer is heated by gas and what is happening is,when the coils that open the gas valve work when they are cool but once the dryer is running and the gas valve coils get warm they wont work,this is pretty typical of a bad gas valve coil.Replacing the coils will fix that.To replace the gas valve coils,UNPLUG THE DRYER, use a putty knife and place in the seam between the main front panel and the small lower front panel AT the corners and depress the clip that holds small panel to main panel.On the right side of the base frame behind the small panel is the burner asm. the coils are held to the gas valve by a bracket remove that bracket and replace the coils, they are black round shaped and one has 2 wires and one has 3 wires the plugs pull off and can be push onto the new coils with just a small amount of pressure.
The part # for the coils is 279834 They can be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;

I hope i have helped you to be able to repair your dryer,

My gas dryer is 3 years old and it starts to heat up when it is turned on and then stops heating while running.


This is usually due to the two gas valve solenoid coils sitting on top of the gas valves, one with 3 prongs and the other has 2. The coils work fine when cool but one or both are weak and fail when get heated. Both coils must work to open the two gas valves in order for the dryer to fire up. The coils are not repairable and the only viable solution is replacing both of them. Replace the solenoid coils and it should solve the problem.

Dryer spins,screen clean,exhaust open blows good no heat


Check the coils on valve or the igniter. Access both thru Access panel on lower right of front panel. Set heated dry cycle & start, igniter should glow bright followed by a "Click" sound, which is valve opening. If it glows and no click, replace the valve coils (2 donut looking objects on top of valve). If no glow, replace igniter, usually just unplug to remove, carefully, they are ceramic and break easy.

Dryer starts the fire but after a moment it stops


This is a clear indication of a gas valve solenoid coil failure. One or both of the gas valve solenoid coils work when cool but fail when they get hot. These coils are located sitting on top of the gas valve assembly, one with three prongs while the other has two.

Replace both coils and it should address the problem. Remove the front panel then the bracket securing the solenoid coils and then pull the coils out. Slide the new coils in then secure them with the bracket. Indicate the complete and exact model number of the dryer for detailed and complete replacement procedure.

Either the venting needs cleaned or the coils on the gas valve are bad. Unhook the venting from the back of the unit and run. If works ok then clean venting. If you still have the problem, replace the two coils on top of the gas valve.

Our amana gas dryer. runs for about 20 mins and shuts off. try to resart and there is busing noisefrom the controls on top. if sets for 45mins. it will start again. until it gets hot. and then wont work.


The problem is in the gas valve coils. They sit on the top of the gas valves. When these coils are energized open the gas valves and allowing the gas to burn. If one or more coil malfunctions, the dryer shuts off. It is usually difficult to properly test the coils and replacement is the best solution.

How to replace gas coil valves on Whirlpool LGR5636EQ3 Gas Dryer


DOES YOUR DRYER HAVE THE LINT SCREEN ON THE TOP? IF SO, REMOVE THAT AND TAKE TWO SCREWS OF(CARE NOT TO DROP IT INTO THE VENT). PULL THE TOP PANEL TOWARD YOU LITTLE BIT AND LIFT UP, THERE WILL BE TWO 5/16 SCREWS INSIDE FRONT PANEL, REMOVE AND UNPLUG THE LID SWITCH CONNECTOR, FRONT PANEL WILL COME OUT. THE GAS VALVES AND COILS ASSEMBLY WILL BE ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT. UNPLUG AND TAKE THE SCREWS OFF THE BRACKET AND REPLACE COILS. CHECK FOR CONTINUITY ON COILS, IT SHOULD READ 1.3 TO 1.9 OHMS. THE ONE WITH THREE TERMINAL, CHECK OHM FROM MIDDLE TERMINAL TO OUTSIDE TERMINALS.

Dryer burner just stopped working. the motor turns but no heat. It also will not start on timed heat.


HI, i recommend inspecting all areas stated below to address this issue. the most common problem will be a set of defective gas valve coils but, i suggest checking all points before replacing the coils.


1. Gas valve coils
igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

2. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

3. igniter
igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.

Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).

4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.
