The Kenmore 110 87880800 gas dryers starts up, ignites the gas initially, then 15 min later the dryer stops heating but continues to turn the drum. If we let the dryer sit for 20 min and turn it back on,...


Hello,
Your dryer is heated by gas and what is happening is,when the coils that open the gas valve work when they are cool but once the dryer is running and the gas valve coils get warm they wont work,this is pretty typical of a bad gas valve coil.Replacing the coils will fix that.To replace the gas valve coils,UNPLUG THE DRYER, use a putty knife and place in the seam between the main front panel and the small lower front panel AT the corners and depress the clip that holds small panel to main panel.On the right side of the base frame behind the small panel is the burner asm. the coils are held to the gas valve by a bracket remove that bracket and replace the coils, they are black round shaped and one has 2 wires and one has 3 wires the plugs pull off and can be push onto the new coils with just a small amount of pressure.
The part # for the coils is 279834 They can be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;
apdepot.com
searspartsdirect.com

I hope i have helped you to be able to repair your dryer,

Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

Dryer is turning without heat and will stop intermittently


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil. Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape or with an ohm meter to test the thermostat/thermistor. (Should have/show continuity)
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST.
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.

The dryer is no longer heating up to dry clothes. it was fine one load ago and now it's not working. the coil is not clogged and there was no excess lint blocking anything.


The first thing to check is the power coming to the dryer. If you have fuses instead of breakers, make sure both fuses are good. Even if only one is bad the coils wont heat up. If you have power, then check the small "cricket" switches inside the rear cover to the dryer. To check them, unplug the dryer, locate the small disk(s) with wires connected to it that is attached to the housing for the heater coils. unplug the 2 wires, then check the disk with a continuity tester or ohm meter set on ohms. there may also be a fuse with 2 wires ( about an inch long fuse) attached to the heater housing, check it for continuity also. the fuse is usually the problem, but not always. Hope this helps . Robin

My whirlpool dryer stopped working today and will not put out any heat, do you know what might be the cause? Model # leq9858pwo


Short answer if the dryer drum still runs, but there is no heat: 90% it's one or both of the heating coils. 10% it's the control switch or relay.
If the dryer will still start and the drum will still turn, find instructions for how to test the heating coils. The test for the coils must be done with the dryer UNPLUGGED! It will involve taking a panel off the dryer.

Unplug dryer before testing.

For your symptom the problem usually is the heater coil burned out. Inside rear cover in a can on the right side. A burned out coil will prevent heating and in the automatic cycle the timer will not advance if the heater is out. You can verify this by using the timed cycle. In timed dry the dryer should turn off even without heat.

Dryer power problems


Yes, all dryers have a belt that turns the drum. Chances are the belt and heat problems are 2 separate issues.. The belt turns the drum from a motor mounted inside the unit, your electric dryer has a heater element/coils that heats the drum your clothes are in. The belt could be bad and heat element also but both at exactly the same time is rare. Try unplugging the unit for about 5minutes and see if it resets. My washer does that sometimes and I have to unplug

My GE DHDSR46EE1WW Dryers heating coil won't shut off...ever!


I think your heating coil may have broken loose or sagged down so that it may be shorting itself against the shroud. The thermal fuse would not allow the dryer to heat at all, and a hi limit error would cause the thermal fuse to blow.
