SOURCE: kenmore heavy duty clothes dryer will not heat

most problems with dryers not heating is the thermo fuse is blown. bout 20 buck to replace it looks like a small white flat football. but most likely if it went out that means the the high temp thermostat is messed up too

SOURCE: Kenmore 80 Series gas dryer starts with heat but very short time

Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You're dryer needs a gas valve coil kit. To replace coils just remove front of dryer body and look below drum you will see the gas valve. The valve coils are located on top of valve (two little round black cylinders). It's simple, just remove the two screws from the little metal bracket that holds them down, unplug the wires from them and just lift them straight up off of the valve. Take notice that one has 3 wires and one has 2 wires. Just replace with new coils and plug wires back in and re-fasten metal bracket. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim.
