Kenmore Elite gas ddryer model 72062--No heat

I have a Kenmore Elite gas dryer model 72062. It stopped producing heat.
Still tumbles, etc.

Can you help me troubleshoot, or are there troubleshooting directions that you can direct me to?

    I used your tip. Removed both ignitor and thermal fuse. Brought to Sears service center. They tested both components and found the thermal fuse to be the issue. Replaced it for $15-not bad!



    The service rep indicated that about 8-9 of 10 reports of non-heating dryers are caused by burned out thermal fuses. This is the place to start. I tried testing it with my ohm meter, but I think it is broke. So I had them test it. I also re-did vent, as the dryer was moved, folding the vent. A freer vent should prevent thermal fuse overheating.



    Thanks for the help!

I have Kenmore dryer model 110.70052990. I runs normally for two minutes and then shuts off.


Those coils work one time and then they get heated and quit. They are cheap, replace em02cdf0c.jpgcc71e57.jpg

Really? You want me to pay you to tell me how to fix it, but you want me to TELL YOU how I fixed it for free? Some scam you're running. Please remove my e-mail address from your system.
