Question about Kenmore 73952 Gas Dryer
The first thing to check is the igniter if it is glowing red hot or not.
The issue is in the gas valve solenoid coils if the igniter glows red hot
but no gas is being ignited, replace both gas valve solenoids.
Otherwise, check the continuity of the high-limit thermostat on the burner outlet box and the thermal fuse and cycling thermostat on the blower housing. Remove the rear access panel to access these parts at the rear of the dryer. These parts are normally closed
and wired in series with the gas valve assembly. Any discontinuity found
simply implies the part has failed and cut the power going to the gas
valve assembly resulting in the no heat issue.
Replace both the high-limit thermostat if it has failed and both the thermal fuse and the cycling thermostat if the thermal fuse has failed. Failure of the thermal fuse simply indicates the failure of the cycling thermostat to cycle and regulate the dryer temperature below the thermal fuse limit.

Kenmore 80 Series of dryers are consumer grade dryers for home use. As
with most home appliances, the Kenmore 80 series dryers will
occasionally not work as intended. If a problem occurs with your dryer,
however, you do not necessarily need it serviced by a technician. You
can attempt to troubleshoot and fix any problems with your dryer before
contacting a technician.
