SOURCE: No heat

If the burner assembly is not lighting I would recommend you look into an igniter replacement. If the igniter is worn, or does not work at all, the gas safety valve will not open and you'll never get ignition. The part number is 279311.

If the burner assembly lights, then goes out after a few minutes, I would recommend you replace the gas valve solenoids. There are two of them on the burner assembly. It is recommended that you replace BOTH of them at the same time. The part numbers are 69540 and 69539. Searspartsdirect.com has an excellent illustration of your dryer. Just type in your model number and look under the "Burner Assembly" heading. The igniter is listed as item 4. The solenoids are items 13 and 14.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

check the thermal fuse if it is blown also change the high limit thermal cut-off fuse www.repairclinic.com shows your parts. go there and enter model number. Also check the heat element. to get into it remove the lint filter and the two screws you'll see there then pry the top up at the front corners. And through the back you should find the heat element and blower housing and thermal fuse and high limit fuse and cycling thermostat.

The most likely cause is a bad ignitor part number 279311. It has to glow to open the valve and ignite the gas. You should hear a loud click when you first start the dryer. That tells us there is voltage to the gas valve.

SOURCE: My Kenmore Series 400 dryer spins & heats, but

Check the outside vent again while the dryer is running. There should be a good strong air flow, if not then your problem is in the exhaust system somewhere

Kenmore model 90 dryer electric will dry the clothes takes a long time. Leaves the floor surrounding the dryer damp actually wet just not puddled


Are the clothes wet AND hot? If so - check the exhaust / vent hose for kinks or obstructions. That includes the cap / flap on the outside of the house.

If the clothes are wet AND cold, then the electric heating element isn't heating likely due to a broken or poor electrical connection, burned out heating element, defective thermostat, etc..

I have a Kenmore 500 series dryer, model number 110.79522800 that will note completely dry clothes. It seems like it doesn't run long enough, heat high enough or a combination of both. What can I do to...


Your Sensor that senses the clothes are wet or dry is shorted out. The dryer works likes this so the dryer heaters dont stay on while the clothes are dry. When the sensor senses the clothes are damp or wet, the heater stays on, when they start drying the sensor senses it and starts to turn down the heaters

It takes 50 min to dry a load of clothes in my 400 series electric dryer can you tell me the problem. I checked the exhaust it looks clear thanks.


It could be heating problem and best way is to check for continuity in heating element and sensors and thermostats and limiters and thermistors in the dryer

My Kenmore 400 series is taking too long to dry


Make sure the vent and tube are clear and not blocked in any way, if clear try washing off the lint screen with hot water, softener will clog the filter
and not allow proper air flow, water will bead up on screen if this is true

Srart by pulling each thermostat wires and tape them together until you find the bad one. You should have 3 of them to test.
