110.76824690 Kenmore Gas Dryer won"t stay hot
« on: August 29, 2010, 06:33:56 PM »
I have checked thermal fuse and hi limit fuse for continuity.  Both seem to be fine. Dryer starts and starts getting warm , then starts turning cold.  I have cleaned and checked blower behind dryer and outside and getting strong air.  There is also a small rattling noise just before it attempts to ignite.

If it heats a little bit but dies. Then replace the gas valve solenoids. They get hot and quit when they get a little age on em.

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.
I love fan letters! LOL
