Question about Kenmore Dryers

Kenmore gas dryer runs but not heating

My 13 year old gas dryer stopped heating today. The drum still turns, though. I checked the vent to see if it was clogged but it wasn't. Is it just old and needs replacing or is it fixable?

Try replacing the valve coils first, then the valve if the prior doesn't work. If there is a buzzing noise, I believe it's more likely the valve. I'm replacing both on mine to be sure.

Takes to long to dry. installed new heating element, new tstats and i noticed that there was a gap on the back gasket drum. this will allow air that is not heated to enter the drum causing a longer dry...


Worn gaskets will cause some extended run time, but 75% of the dryer problems I repair are directly related to improper venting. Check that first. Pushing air thru the clothes is just as important as adding heat. Vent connector in rear should be rigid metal or heavy metal flex. As short as possible with no kinks. An easy way to check vent is to look at element when dryer is running. Should glow soft orange, not red hot or white . Try it with venting attached and then removed. If element glows less brightly with vent off, then vent is restricted.
