Unplug and turn off the gas feed. The fuse is located in the back of the series 70 attached to the lint housing near the bottom. About 1-1/2 inches long. Easy to remove, only two contact wire attachments. Note which wire goes where. Under $10.00 at an appliance parts store. Start with this fix.

If still no heat take out the ignitor assembly, located in the front, lower left. It is attached to the base of the dryer by 3 screws, the gas feed and two electrical wires with removable metal attachments (note which attachment goes where). The entire assembly will come out and the ingitor is attached to the front end. I took mine to the appliance parts store and it tested OK so it was the fuse. The owner helped me locate the fuse and suggested I try this first. The ignitor coil is about $25.00.

Both of these were easy enough for a novice (like me) to do. It saved a lot of money.

While the dryer was open I vacuumed out all the dust and lint and checked the integrity of the belt.

Good luck.

SOURCE: kenmore dryer series 70 won't turn on

most of the time it is the door switch that goes bad,also you can check the main fuse inside the dryer on the blower box,and always make sure your dryer vent and wall vent are clear to vent,let me know what you find-mike

check the thermal fuse if it is blown also change the high limit thermal cut-off fuse www.repairclinic.com shows your parts. go there and enter model number. Also check the heat element. to get into it remove the lint filter and the two screws you'll see there then pry the top up at the front corners. And through the back you should find the heat element and blower housing and thermal fuse and high limit fuse and cycling thermostat.

My Kenmore Series 70 Dryer will not start at all. No sensation of the start button doing anything when I push it. Thermal fuse continuity is good (0 ohms). Light goes off inside the dryer when I depress...


most likely its the push button that is bad. you can buy one from any appliance dealer that services a kenmore dryer. the part is a reasonable price. you also have to give them the model number and serial number. have a good day!!

The flame sensor is right next to the ignitor. Also see this link for what it looks like:

I have a kenmore 70 series gas dryer. It won't


Check the thermal fuse and thermostats first, then the ignitor and the valve coils are the next possibilities.

The most likely cause is a bad ignitor part number 279311. It has to glow to open the valve and ignite the gas. You should hear a loud click when you first start the dryer. That tells us there is voltage to the gas valve.

You probably have an open thermal fuse, the dryer will run in some cases and not heat, Just moving air across you clothes will dry them however it takes forever.

If you are electrical or mechanical replace the thermal fuse yourself if not call someone you trust, you can purchase thermal fuses on line from Sears.com just do a parts search for you specific dryer.
