Either the flame sensor "EYE" or the control board is not sensing the flame and shutting off the gas supply for safety

The gas valve will not fire, the ignitor glows but no fire from gas valve


replace your ignitor even if it is glow there is current that need to pass in the ignitor wire and if it is not getting to that current it will not kick on the gas valve , even if it is glowing.
if it is more then 4 years it is that :)

My gas dryer is not heating up I checked to see if any flames is on when its running but its not coming on the timer is turning.what needs to change


All gas dryers have a gas module. The older models (very old) have a pilot light and the new ones have what is called a GLOW PLUG and it is made out of ceramic. If this glow plug is in any way broken, you will not have any heat. The GLOW PLUG is what comes on when you first turn the dryer on and it GLOWS until the gas module actually spits out a small amount of gas and an internal combustion occurs and the flames come on full power and this is what dries your clothes. If the GLOW PLUG is fine, then the gas module could be bad. ALSO, Always check for burnt wires and check any thermostats or fuses internally in the unit.

Kenmore 80 series Gas Dryer


HI. you are correct. this dryer, although gas, is using a Glow igniter system. most older models used the snap igniter that clicks over and over to spark the burner but, this dryer is only 2 years old so, it should be outfitted with a glow igniter system. This igniter is powered by electricity.

It works in conjunction with a Flame sensor.

GLOW PLUG WORKS BUT ONLY STAYS LIT FOR 30 SECONDS


HI, there are a set of coils on the gas valve assembly that have gone bad. these coils are responsible for the opening and closing of the gas valves. your coil assembly is damaged, in return, causing this interruption.

simply replacing the coils will fix this issue.

Make sure your vent duct is not clogged up. If the machine can't breathe properly it will short cycle the burner.

If this is ok, it sounds like the flame sensor has failed. Also, the thermistor should not read open, it should have some resistence. It changes depending on the temp. Open the back of the console and you should have a tech sheet that gives all the readings and diagnostic checks.

Post back to this thread if you need help going through it.
