SOURCE: dryer won't heat

i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

SOURCE: Inglis Gas Dryer Does not heat up at all, No spark, no flame

When you start the dryer , after a few seconds do you hear a distinct click sound from inside the bottom of the dryer at the burner assembly? If you do not, you most likely have a bad thermal fuse, part# 3392519 or 3390719, depending on your dryer. Its the same fuse just different shape, both will work. This is most likely your problem. If you do hear a click, you may have a bad ignitor. Best way to test is to check for 120 at the ignitor. If you have anymore questions or need parts feel free to ask in my forum at www.washermd.com, thanks, Dave

Need help with gas dryer Kenmore 90 series serial #MK0211114 the gas does not ignite electric is working fine


This could be several things thermal fuse,hi limit thermostat,flame sensor, ignitor,or coils. There is a video on troubleshooting a gas dryer at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru the troubleshooting procedure. It is a different model but troubleshooting will be the same. You could also check the video on the electric heating element replacement that is a kenmore 90 and most of the parts will be the same. That one will give you a good idea of what thermostat is what.

Signal


Kenmore 70 series. Model/Stock 66702692 Serial MG2402832

Cycle Signal works but then won't shut off until I open up the dryer door - it just keeps buzzing for hours. Also the dryer will turn on if I close the door ( and arrow is within a number and not on off) without pressing the start button. So if door is closed - the dryer will run or buzz (depending on arrow). How do I fix this?

Thank you

Dryer won't dry


There are three possible parts that can cause this.
1. Thermal fuse
2. Thermostat
3. Flame sensor

https://www.repairclinic.com/Shop-For-Parts/a8b6d600503/Model-11072212100-Kenmore-Dryer-Parts

You can check the first two with a meter to see if they are ok. If they are then you should replace the flame sensor.
