maybe call a generic appiance store other than sears, try maytag store. the knob pulls staight off and the timer nut is below. then take off the back cover off the control panel, sometimes those screws are on the front corners, sometimes hidden. take a picture of the timer wiring and tape and label all the wires before you remove it. unplug it first!!

Kenmore dryer, 417.93042202, just replaced gas coil set, but now we only get high heat, regardless of the heat setting.

Those coils serve to supply the gas to the burner and do not have anything to do with the temp. That is the job of the control thermostat. It mounts on the blower housing. Older models have a bi-metal klixon type control. Typically having 4 wires. 2 small wires which heat up the klixon so that it will shut down faster for knits and perma. 2 bigger wires which go to the gas assembly. Newr models have a thermistor. I would be a replacing the control stat stat. LOL

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 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

Kenmore Gas Dryer (Model #110.76022990) not heating and timer not working in Knit/Delicate setting. Then timer not working in any setting and still no heat. Talked with a repair man over phone and he said...

There should be a small plastic cover on the bottom left corner of the front panel so you can observe the burner assembly while it is running. Your watching for the burner to ignite after the glow coil heats up. It may work initially but after you leave the dryer run you may notice the glow coil on and when it cuts out the burner won't ignite. If this is in fact what is happening you will most likely need to replace the gas valve coils.

Hello, My Kenmore 70 serie (model 110.72712101), will not heat up. Cleaned filter and exhaust vent. Any suggestions will be of great help. Thanks!

The ignitor is probably bad not aloowing the gas valve to come on and ignite the gas to heat the dryer. The ignitor is a flat bimetallic element that heats up when the dryer is turned on to light the burner to heat the dryer. It is usually located in the lower left section of the dryer near the burner assembly. It has two wires usually white going to it with a plug in connector on the end.

I have a 5 year old Sears Kenmore dryer that won't offer heat

This is an electric heated device?

Do you use fabric softener sheets in your machine? If yes, have you tried cleaning the sensor? Look on the back wall for a sensor. Check with Sears for specific instructions.

Kenmore gas dryer after 5 to 10 min. later no more heat

My Kenmore 80 series (model 11072802100) has the same problem that it fires up first and then stop producing heat after a few minutes. It's also 7 years old. After a while, if I restart it, it will run and do the same thing. I found a thread of discussion on another forum that says that this can be the gas valve coil (solenoids) problem as these coils turn on and off the gas flow to the chamber. I'm going to check out the coils, but don't know where they are located (can't find the manual). If anyone has any idea, please share. Or I'll just tear off the top and back to see where they are.

Any gurus here to help? Thanks.
