Question about Kenmore 74112 Gas Dryer
Saw your ersponse from a few months ago
"For a Gas Dryer:
1: Check if the igniter glows, if the igniter glows for a short time, followed by a distinct "click" then shuts off, you most likely have to replace the valve coils. "
I have this same problem. Just wanted to verify that these are the two small cylinder shaped pieces just past the internal gas value. the parts manual shows them as "coil 60Hz, (2 terminal Main and 3 terminal pilot position)
Is it just as simple as unscrewing the bracket, unplugging tehm and repclaing them?
Sorry I haven't been on recently....with the Kenmore dryer you should just purchase part # 279834, it includes both coils, better than messing with them one at a time. Yes, it is a simple matter of removing the bracket, sliding the coils up and off, and replacing them. Sorry for the late response, you probably have it figured out already. : )

Correct - it is that simple. I just went through the same thing - not even 15 minutes ago. And, they are basically linear motor fields. The drive the cylinder (post they slip over) out, opening the valve, allowing gas flow.
