Question about Kenmore 73952 Gas Dryer

1 Answer

My basement flooded and since then the dryer won't heat up. the glow plug clicks on then off about 30 seconds later which i was told is normal. the gas to the dryer is also o.k. I think it might not be getting gas through that black box that the gas line is going into. sorry I don't know what it called. please let my know if that needs to be replaced or if i can take that apart and maybe clean it. and if possible what it might be called and maybe a roundabout price. it's a kenmore 70 series

CHECK IF THE WATER GOT INTO THE VENT SYSTEM. MAKE SURE THE VENT IS CLEARED. IF SO, THEN YOUR COILS(TWO ROUND BLACK PART, ONE WITH TWO TERMINALS, OTHER HAS THREE). USE OHM METER CHECK ACROSS THE TWO TERM, SHOULD HAVE OHM READINGS. ON THREE TERM., CHECK FROM 1ST TO 2ND TERMS, THEN 1ST TO 3RD, YOU SHOULD HAVE OHM READINGS. IF ALL THESE ARE GOOD, THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT WATER GOT INTO THE GAS LINE INSIDE THE MACHINE. IF THAT IS CHECKED AND CLEARED, THEN YOUR RADIANT SENSOR IS BAD. IT'S LOCATED NEXT TO THE BURNER UNIT, RIGHT OUTSIDE OF THE GLOW PLUG. GOOD LUCK

Lg dlg7188rm - My dryer is not getting hot. When I start a cycle the ignitor comes on (orange glow under dryer) and then gas comes on (blue glow). After about 30 seconds both shut off.


There are two or three sensors in the heat exchanger and another one or two in the fan housing. Check them all for continuity. One in the heat exchanger is resettable

I have a Kenmore gas dryer Model 74812200. It is no longer heating up. When I turn it on, I hear a clicking sound for about 30 seconds then it goes off. Then about a minute later I hear the clicking sound...


You would not hear the click if the ignitor was bad. It won't click until the flame sensor get heated up by the ignitor. So that tells me the thermal fuse ain't melted. I would say them coils on the gas valve are the problem. themobilian_2943.jpg

if it runs for the first 15 to 30 minutes and then no heat you have bad gas coils,located on top of the gas valve,when the coils heat up they fail,if you try to start it again after it sits for a long time it will lite again,also you could have a bad gas valve,try tapping the valve to see if it lites,if it does lite while you're tapping on it most likely it will be the valve,let me know what you find and send the model number.good luck

Not heating for my MayTag commercial Dryer


You need to remove the front panel and check to see if the glow bar is lighting. If it is and you aren't getting any flame 1 of 2 things can be wrong the gas coils could be bad or the gas valve itself could be bad. the easiest way to check the gas coils is to take off the front panel (you will need either a philips head screw driver or a T20 security star bit) and loosen up the bracket that holds the gas coils down. Don't remove the screws completely. start the dryer and lift up the bracket. If it seems like the coils are pulling the bracket down then the coils are good and you will need to replace the gas valve

LG DLG 3788W not heating


can you look in one of the holes in the back and see if the inside glows orange after you turn it on? If it doesn't could be the igniter, if it does glow orange, clicks or clacks, and glows again 20-30 seconds later, click/clack and nothing, it's probably the gas valve. I'm going through the same thing with a new one and they had to order the valve and a new controller board in case it is bad too. If you are handy, have an electronic tester, and have the patience, go to http://136.166.4.200/contents/Laundry/DLG3788.htm for the service manual and disassembly instructions and see if you want to tackle the test flow for no heat. I just stumbled on the site.
