Kenmore gas Dryer
« on: July 14, 2012, 06:36:54 PM »
I have a kenmore gas dryer model 110.7106200. The dryer ignites,but does not stay on. I have replaced the ignator, thermister and control panel. It only works sometimes. If it is in the diagnostic mode it works just fine for 5 minutes and then shuts down. I have checked and cleaned all venting.What should I do next?

Did you reconnect the yellow wire to the sensor strips? Are they clean? Wax buildup gets on them and sometimes forms a water barrier. The clothes seem dry to the control and it shuts down.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
