You have bad gas coils or a bad gas valve but most of the time it's the coils.if you just installed a new ignitor and it's glowing most likely it's the coils

    the part number for the coils is 279834,you get both coils instead of getting them single

Ge gas dryer heats but doesnt dry


if the flame is lighting you have lint blocking the air flow either in the dryer or in the vent line,also if you have a flame for the first 10 to 20 minutes and then the flame doesn't light you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve,when the coils are bad they can work for the first 10 to 20 minutes until the coils get hot and then they fail and you'll see the ignitor glowing orange but no flame,bad gas coils.then when the coils cool down they can work again.hope this helps.you can try removing the vent line from the back of the dryer and see if the flame stays on,if lint is blocking the air from blowing out the flame won't stay lit long enough to dry the clothes.

Kenmore gas dryer #41793142300 electronic start doesnt heat up


if you first have heat and then like 10 to 20 minutes later no heat you could have bad gas coils,on most gas dryers there's a plastic cap you can pop off on the front panel so you can look in and see the ignitor,if at first the ignitor glows orange and the flame lights then after a few minutes the ignitor glows orange and the flame doesn't light you have bad gas coils,they are located on the top of the gas valve,easy to change.part number 5303931775 go here and look at part 71

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 you have already replaced the ignitor and the new one is glowing white hot, not orange, and you have replaced the sensor, then the next logical part to replace would be the gas coils. hope this will help solve the problem.

KENMORE DRYER MODEL # 11072212100. THE DRYER GOES


that dryer has boost coils down by the ignitor. You're probably hearing some clicking down there too.....those coils go bad over time just like a light bulb and they will light the first time and generally don't after that cause they overheat. Part number on those coils is 695540 and they usually come in a set for around $20 to $30

Kenmore gas dryer model 75291. The gas dodes not start


first, check to make sure gas present to unit, and power to the ignitor. if no power, replace timer, if power, check the ignitor for continuity, if open, replace. If ok, check to make sure none of the thermostats are open, if they are, replace. If ok, check gas valve solonoids, they should not appear melted or stuck, if so replace. If still no function, replace gas valve.

Inglis gas dryer heat loss


It sounds like you have an intermittent gas valve. The ignitor is calling for heat however the gas valve doesnt want to open.

Make sure you turn off the gas and unplug before replacing.

Check for leaks after you reassemble.
