I have a front loading gas dryer that is part of the Elite series. It's about 5 years old. I have moved from an area that has gas to propane. I've noticed a black soot build up in the dryer and think it's because it should be converted to use propane. Is there a conversion kit? I don't have the serial number handy.

Besides the thermal fuse, the thermistor, main control board, door locking system and the problems all over youtube and google, the dryer may last you about a year or so. That is if you only do laundry one a year. The HE4's are ****. Have both washer and dryer for about 5 years. I could now be a sears repair man with the amount of knowledge I had to digest while fixing these things. NEVER, NEVER again will I buy kenmore!
It is normal for the dryer to make sound due to the high velocity of air moving through the dryer drum and exhaust system.
A clicking noise may be the timer advancing.
Check the load for objects such as coins, nails, etc. Remove promptly from dryer.
It is normal to hear the dryer gas valve or heating element cycle on and off during the drying cycle.
The dryer should be level and installed on a solid floor.
Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.
The most obvious thing to me is that the cord may have been loosened or damaged by the move, or the terminals in the machine may have loosened. Either test the cord on your "new" machine, or replace it with a known "good" cord. Wait a minute....you already have one of those....
Try it, it may be the very thing!
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.
We can fix this. your dryer has some wheels/rollers and an idler pulley they get worn and or plug up with fabric sheet guu.what you do is pop the top,that the frount off and this will expose the drum,undo the belt the clean inspect /oil and replace worn parts.sounds like you wont see much wear because it stops after[gets warm]so may get buy with oil/cleaning Ps unplug before working
Sounds like you might have the gas coils going bad. Not that expensive for repair, and parts arent that much either. Worse case would be a control board has went bad, but not likely. Gas coil part number is : 694539, and 694540. Also, you may want to check to see if the ignitor is glowing, that part # is 279311. Good luck and let me know if that doesnt help you.
