Re: kenmore no flame

Is this the scenario? It lights for a few cycles or maybe not at all. The ignitor glows and goes out but no flame. Comes back on then does the same thing. If so it could be failing coils (those two black cylinders on top of the gas valve assembly). There's a kit that includes both and it's a fairly simple job.

Model 110 72712101 kenmore gas dryer will come on run about 2to3 minutes then goes off after a short the glow will come on again but will not relight.

Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time. Here is a link to the parts you need.

Dryer gas ignites Runs for up to 5 minutes flame goes out

check the igniter to make sure it is glowing white and not orange. if it's orange replace it. you may also need the gas coils replaced.

Gas dryer heat is intermediate

does the igniter glow white or orange? if it is orange you need to replace it. has to be white hot to ignite. if the igniter is white it could be the coils not opening the gas valve all the time - an intermittent problem.

Kenmore Gas Dryer ignites then stops heating after ten minutes.

If the glow bar comes back on and the gas does not light,replace the gas valve coils. If the ignitor does not come back on,replace the flame sensor.

Sears kenmore gas dryer 417.92052101does not stay lit.

Watch the burner assembly, shortly after starting the dryer the ignitor should begin to glow. If it glows for several seconds (up to 15 seconds) and then goes out, then the problem is probably the solenoids (coils). If the ignitor glows and stays on, then the problem is usually the flame sensor.
