Question about Kenmore 74622 Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Hello, I have a Kenmore Gas Dryer (Model #74622) and it turns on, and blows out cool air, but doesn't get hot and makes an unsual sound once the cycle starts. It has been sitting in my storage unit for 6 months and prior to that it worked perfect. Can you please help me?????

    the website should have you checked your thermal fuse by bypassing it(taking the spades off and taping them together), as this is the most common problem, but you need to check coils, igniter, thermostat and senor with a meter for continuity. I do not know exactly what you have or have not tried, I would check all the things listed, but more then likely its the thermal fuse or a sensor. Hope this helped Tim

Could be motor overheating and shutting off. Need to check if drum turns freely. If it does check vent hose making sure it isn't plugged causing dryer to overheat. If motor is bad it will get worse and just not start

Kenmore mod# 110.73012102, sounds like igniter is working ,drum turns, air blows ,but no heat


pop off the bottom panel,there's two clips that are on top of the bottom panel,stick a screw driver or putty knife in and pop the clips and pull out the panel to remove,start the dryer,if the flame ignites and then after a few minutes it doesn't ignite any more you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve,part number 279834 and they're around 25 dollars,if the flame ignites but goes out to soon most likely you have a blockage somewhere from lint buildup,pull off the vent line from the back of dryer and see if it runs any better,also unplug the dryer,remove the lint filter,remove the bottom panel and then remove the metal duct that the filter slides into and clean it out,vac and blow out all lint with a shop vac on the motor and inside the cabinet,if your vent line is a long run,remove it from the back of dryer and blow it out with a leaf blower,first check outside to make sure there isn't a cage or anything blocking the air flow before you blow out the line,if there is remove it and don't put it back.let me know how you make out and good luck.

Gas dryer will heat sometimes and not heat other times kenmore model 72802


sounds like bad gas coils,you have to send the whole model number,it will start with 110. or similar,if the bottom panel comes off,remove it,start the dryer, or in the front panel down near the bottom pop off the cover and look in,if the flame lights and then after 10 to 20 minutes the flame doesn't light you have bad gas coils.when the coils are starting to fail they will work correctly until they heat up and then they won't work until they cool down,the coils are what opens the gas valve.the coils are on top of the gas valve,remove the two phillips screws,pull off the cover,remove the wires from the coils and install the new coils,put it back together and you'll be fine,also while you're in there,get a shop vac and vac out the cabinet,stick it on blow and blow all the lint off of the motor and out of the gas tube,then clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into.if your vent line is a long run from the back of the dryer to the outside,i use a leaf blower remove the vent line from the back of the dryer and blow all the lint outside out of the line,do this once a year,you won't have any fires,your clothes will dry on time and your motor and parts will last longer

Dryer says cloths are dry but they are still damp. Is there a sensor I can change ? This is a kenmore elite he4


what's the model number?if it's gas you could have bad gas coils,the coils will work for the first 15 to 30 minutes and then no heat,when the coils are failing they will work until they get hot then stop working,when they cool they will work again,also when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer and vent line?if it's gas you should do this once a year,electric once every two years,you have to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the cabinet where the motor is and if the vent line is a long run from the back of the dryer to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow out the line.you can remove the bottom panel,start the dryer with clothes in it and after 15 to 30 minutes see if the flame still lites if it's gas,if it doesn't change out the gas coils located on top of the gas valve.

I have a Kenmore series 90 gas dryer that has been converted to propane, model 110.74912200. the burner will light and stay hot for about 3 minutes and then will cycle off and only blow cool air. I have...


I would suspect faulty gas valve solenoids. These electrical coils are right above the gas valves and when energized, these solenoids open the valves to permit gas flow. It's recommended that if any are suspected of being faulty that both (all) be replaced at the same time. They will most likely come as a set from the parts supplier. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

My dryer is ot blowing hot air


Remove the heater vent, then turn dryer on. Does this fix problem? If so then you have a block in your vent hose.
