Question about Kenmore 72802 Gas Dryer
Hi: I have a Kenmore 80 series model 72802. If I set dryer timed setting for 60 minutes drying time, everything works fine & dryer heats up like it should. When I come back to dryer after 60 minute cycle, notice that dryer is cool & clothes are not fully dry. When I set dryer settings & turn on dryer, looking through peep hole, igniter glows, gas flame comes on, dryer heats up. Gets hot on hot setting. After short time, flame goes out, igniter glows again, but no flame on, then igniter goes out. does not heat up from this point. Also, if I turn on dryer, igniter will glow, gas flame comes on, dryer heats up. If I open door & stop dryer, then close door & restart dryer, igniter will come on, but no flame & then igniter goes out. Clothes are not fully drying. Any suggestions as to where to start troubleshoot would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
I would like to thank the ones who responded to giving me a 'hand' in repairing my dryer. I did like you said & changed out the coils & now the dryer is working like it should.

Make sure that your vent is not plug up can you go outside your house and feel good air coming out the vent when the dryer is turn on if so the only other things it could be is the coils that sit on the ignotor assmebly or the high limit termistat is not working properly the coils are little black circle coils that sit in the ignitor assmly should have a metal braket across the top of them holding them in you can check resistance on these coils if you have an meter

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.
if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....
If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.
