The symptom you have indicates weak solenoid coils. The gas valve should open and the burner should ignite every time the glow bar igniter glows before it fades back off. Weak solenoid coils will usually open the gas valve until the solenoids become hot from the current and flame and then they don't have enough power to open the gas valve.

Replace both solenoid coils and your dryer will most heat and operate normally again. In order to access and replace the solenoid coils you will need to remove the front panel.

Here is the coil kit to order.

Kenmore model 11072842100 Gas Dryer, just stopped heating up, heats a little then stops heating ? thermal fuse? ?? thanks


The thermal fuse dies and stays dead. No more power would be applied to the gas assembly if it melts. The dryer would still run thoughthemobilian_188.jpgthemobilian_189.jpgThe ignitor is either going to be good or bad no in between. The flames sensor can stick with age but this is rare, The bi-metal sometimes takes a while to reset on these but like I said it is a rarity. themobilian_190.jpgThese coils however are notorious for getting hot and quitting.

Lgr5620kq1 dryer,heat comes on but does not stay on,


If you find that the dryer initially lights, then goes out and the igniter coil glows, then also goes out, it's the valve solenoid coil, about $25.

There is a temperature limit switch as well. This usually either fails entirely (no heat at all) or operates the burner out of the normal range (often showing up as clothes taking too long to dry).

A clogged dryer vent will cause problems with heat cycling, too.

Heats then stops


You need to replace the 2 solenoid coils on the burner valve . When one of them gets hot from electricity going thru it , it opens ( shorts internally ) . After the dryer cools down , they will work again until they warm up , then , no heat . Take your complete model number , when you get the parts .

Dryer wont stay hot. it gets cold after first load


If dryer lights for a few minutes and will not stay lit, I believe the solenoid coils will need to be replaced. Click on link below, enter your model number lgr5620kq1 in model search feature and go to the dryer page it shows a breakdown view of your dryer. Also go to common solutions and look for gas dryer problems. I will also be here to help you, Sea Breeze
