Thi igniter is on the burner assy located in the bottom of the dryer. This manual will tell you how to open your dryer. It does not tell you how to change the igniter but it does show how to access the burner. The igniter change out is a matter of unmounting the existing one and unplugging the connector then install the new one. The burner access is through the toe panel discussed in the manual link above.

If you need more assistance would provide your model number please so we both can refer to the correct data.

Thanks for using FixYa,

My kenmore dryer series 70 is not heating, i replaced igniter, thermo sensor, and still does not heat....there is no glow from inside please help....


Check the fuse Note: Gas dryer thermofuse is linked to the gas assembly and blows whenever the temp exceeds 350f rapidly. Remove all air restrictions15f9d55.jpgbefore replacing that fuse or you will just need to keep buying em.f8e11bb.jpg65c991e.jpg

Kenmore propane dryer 70 series does not lite


Hi,
Assuming the gas is on. The most likely problem is a bad ignitor. Remove the bottom front panel(pop 2 clips at the top of lower panel with a flat screwdriver) and turn the dryer on Look for the ignitor to glow. If the ignitor does not glow test leads to ignitor for power if you have power replace it. If the ignitor glows then you are not getting gas check to make sure the gas supply is on.
I hope this helps if you need further assistance please let me know.

Kenmore 70 series gas dryer (Whirlpool model) will not ignite!!!!


>> Do you know where the flame sensor is located? I figure the ignitor is where the "glowing" occurs and the gas line feeds to. Thanks for your help!<<

The flame sensor is right next to the ignitor. Also see this link for what it looks like:

Kenmore dryer not heating


Check the following-- Gas valve coils Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Kenmore 70 Series


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.

Kenmore dryer 70 series flame ignites, but goes out after 5 mins


If it's gas, the coil valves get weak and are unable to hold themselves open when hot. First, check the exhaust vent. If it's clogged, it can't remove heat and it will shut off prematurely. Most likely the coil valves though.

This is a pilot-less ignition. You should wait at LEAST 48 hours for the water to evaporate as much as possible.

Longer if possible.
