That model does not have a pilot light.  It has an electronic ignitor.  If it is not igniting, either the igniter is not getting a signal to ignite, the igniter is burned out, or the gas solenoid is broken.  Probably the igniter is burned out.  It is item number 3018 at RepairClinic.com.

check the ignitor under the door panel on the left side of the burner if it gets red when you turn the dryer on.if yes than see if gas shoots out and yes than how long it stays on if in few minutes it turns off than need thermal fuse checked so let me know up to this point if it works or not .

SOURCE: dryer won't heat up

It could be the problem, you are definitely on the right track. There are a lot of things though that could cause a dryer to not heat. I try to give the most common reasons as it is hard to determine without hooking up a voltage meter to the parts. One thing is that your vents may be clogged up somewhere between the dryer and the outside. A lot of people don't want to believe that the problem is that, but it is common and if that is the problem better to be that then something wrong with the dryer. Anyway, check outside where the vent is and feel if the air coming out is strong. If it's not that may be the issue.

Next, if the air is good, open up the bottom panel so you can watch the dryer working. Watch and see if the ignitor is coming on. You may just have a problem with the thermostat which tells the dryer when to shut off the heat when the temp in the drum has reached the max. It should go up to about 110 degrees and then turn off, when it gets down to about 70 or so it will come back on. That is the job of the thermostat, to regulate the temp. If it does not work though it just won't heat.

If your ignitor does come on and you see the flame and it goes right off then you need to replace the thermostat. If it doesn't come on at all though you will need a new ignitor seloniod. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful for you. It might be wise to have a tech come out and fix it too as some of those things can become quite a pain to fix. Gas dryers are a lot more complicated then electric. Good luck and glad to help.

SOURCE: Kenmore gas dryer not getting hot enough

Have you checked the lint trap and also the vent hose? If you have yet to do that try it. Also make sure that the vent line is not crushed. It needs to be wide open

The door latch is about $5. Replace it.
Any appliance parts store has them.

Kenmore Gas Dryer does not dry clothes.


If this is the electric version then after 15 years you probably need a new heating element, they are not difficult to install and are not terribly expensive as a DIY project.

We have a sears dry model no. 1107481220 and the dryer is not drying the clothes.


Ok, first does the heat come on at all, if not,, make sure the gas if coming on, if it is, you need to check the thermostats, If its not, you need to replace the coils located on the gas valve itself it looks like this http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Kenmore-Parts/Dryer-Parts/694540/0026/110/Model-11074812200/0582/0151200?keySuffixId=NA&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=11074812200&subCompDesc=Burner%20assembly&brandDesc=KENMORE&modelDesc=GAS-DRYER&blt=11 that is the main one, and you have a second one too that should be replaced at the same time, it has 3 terminals, for a diagram of the burner assembly click on this http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Dryer-Parts/Model-11074812200/0582/0151200?searchedModel=1107481220&blt=
