You access the heating coil from the front after removing the drum.  it is sitting on the back wall behind the drum and can be removed that way.

I have a Kenmore series 70 gas dryer(model 110.74722400) and the dryer does not shut off when in auto-dry. It heats up well (replaced the coils and the timer), but just won't shut-off. We've been using...


when it's in auto all it does is the heat comes on,reaches temp. then the heat shuts off,when the heats off then the timer advances,when the heat comes back on the timer stops.pop off the plastic cap on the left hand side of the front panel,put clothes in the dryer and run it,after 15 to 30 minutes look in the hole in the front panel and make sure the flame is still liting,also did you clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into.remove the vent line and if that's a long run blow it out with a leaf blower,i had one guy say his vent line was clear and he used a leaf blower and blew out a birds nest,then unplug the dryer,remove the back panel,on the left side take out the four screws and remove the duct and clean that out and the blower wheel,also remove the thermostat on the blower wheel housing and look at the back of it,if lint is stuck on it clean it off and put it back in and try that.also you said you changed out the gas coils,when you removed the out coils on the large coil there's a spacer that goes on the post and sometimes when you remove the coil it gets stuck inside the old coil or if after running the dryer for like 20 to 30 minutes and the flame doesn't lite you have bad gas coils,when they heat up they fail when they are going bad and that will stop the timer from advancing.let me know what you find and if i can help with any questions let me know

Dryer not heating up


Hi, If the dryer stops heating later in the cycle, it is most likely the coils on top of the gas valve. It is a very common issue with the gas dryer.
Here is how to change the coils
UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front should lift off. You will see the two black coils on the gas valve. When you remove the three wire coil, make sure the sleeve inside it gets put back on the post the coils slides onto.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Thanks

Gas dryer will not stay warm for long


Hi, You will need to replace the coils on top of the gas valve.
There is a small plastic cap that you can remove in the lower front panel. Start the dryer and see if the ignitor glows and shuts off before the gas ignites. If this is the case, the coils need replaced. This is a very common issue with the gas dryer.
Here is how to change the coils:
UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front should lift off. You will see the two black coils on the gas valve. When you remove the three wire coil, make sure the sleeve inside it gets put back on the post the coils slides onto.

My gas dryer will not heat up and will not turn off at the end of the cycle. Both problems started at the same time.


Hi, The timer will not advance unless there is heat (if in the automatic cycle)
I would check the fuse first, here is how:
UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it.
If the dryer heats in first part of cycle and stops late in cycle, you will need to change the coils on the gas valve. Here is how:
UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front should lift off. You will see the two black coils on the gas valve.

Gas dryer runs but no heat


Hi, Remove the little cap on the front panel lower left corner and start the dryer. Look into the hole and see if the ignitor glows (5 - 10 seconds)
If the ignitor does not glow, try this: Normal 0 UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it.
If the ignitor glows and then shuts off before you see a flame, try this:
Normal 0 UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners.

Dryer heat turns off after about 5 min- dyer will remain running but no heat


HI, After the heat shuts down, do you hear a click like it is trying to heat again but then get no flame. The most some problem is the coils on the gas valve go bad and will not reopen after they have heated up.
Remove the cap on the front lower left panel. After dryer has ran and heat shuts down, watch and se if the ignitor glows again (you will hear a click) and the ignitor shuts off before a flame. If this happens, change the coils on th gas valve.
Here is instruction: Normal 0 UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners.

Dryer won't heat up


HI, Can you see the ignitor glow at all? If not, check the thermofuse first. It is located on the blower housing white, /4" wide, & 3" long. If you can remove the rear panel on your model, that is where the fuse is located. If you can not remove the back panel, some models you have to remove the whole front panel and some the lower half front panel comes off.
If the ignitor does glow, you will need to replace the coils on top of the gas valve.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
