90% of all gas dryers lighting intermittently is resolved with new coil packs on the gas valve. The coils are replacable fairly easily and inexpensive.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore Series 90 gas dryer. Works fine.

The only source of a gas leak from inside the dryer itself is the gas valve. They can sometimes leak a little gas when you first turn the gas on after hooking it up. If your gas pressure is normal (and I'm guessing the plumber checked it) and your other gas appliances are working properly, the dryer gas valve is faulty and should be checked by a qualified appliance servicer.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite HE3 Gas Dryer - Heat flame will not ignite

The Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

Gas dryer not heating checked thermo fuse ignighter both good


Than its going to be in your heat coil/ valves and your flame sensor. The flame sensor is a rectangle box on the flame tube. Your heater coils are on the gas valve they are two round silinoids one with two pins to it and one wwith three. Follow the gas line to the gas valve on the gas valve you will see two quick connects that run to it. There is one screw and the plate cover will come off to give you access to the heater coils.

If you have anymore question please comment me back

Kenmore Elite He3 gas dryer (110-92832100) not heating. Igniter glows red for a min or so, drum spins, hear a loud 'buzzing' noise....


The problem could be flame radiant sensor or in most cases the gas valve solenoid coils sitting on top of the gas valves. The radiant sensor must be aligned perfectly with the igniter. The radiant sensor contacts bypasses one of the gas valve solenoid coils and as the igniter heats up it makes the sensor contact trips unbypassing the coil and allowing the gas to flow and be ignited.

The problem is with the solenoid coils,
one with 2-prongs and the other has 3, if the radiant sensor is aligned with igniter and working perfectly but no gas is ignited. The buzzing sound is coming from the coils trying to operate the valves. Replacing both coils is the simple and only viable solution.

Kenmore Gas Dryer 11070852991. Have replaced the thermal fuse , operating thermostat, and High limit thermostat Still same problem . the dry starts ok egnites on and off for the 1st 10 minutes. Then stops...


bad gas coils,if you have heat for say the first 10 minutes then no heat you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve,when the coils cool down you'll have heat again this is what happens when they start to fail,also when you change them out on the large coil there's a metal spacer that should be on the post when you remove the coil if it isn't on the post look inside the coil you have to pop it out and slide it back on post part number 279834 remove the two phillips screws,and remove the metal cover,remove the wires from the coil and install the new coils,easy job as long as you know what to look for lol hope this helps you out and good luck

Check the coils on gas valve. If igniter glows bright & no CLICK sound heard after a few seconds of igniter glowing, coils are bad, or flame sensor if so equiped
