My Kenmore Series 70 gas dryer (Model #11074722400) is experiencing heating problems.
From a cold start, the ignition coil glows, I get flame and heat for about 5 minutes, after that the flame stops, heat stops and the dry just keeps running.
Then if I stop and restart the dryer the ignition coil glows, but I never get any flame at all.
If I stop the dryer and wait about 10-15 min then start it again, the ignition coil glows, I get flame and heat for about 5 minutes, heat stops and the dry just keeps running.
From the research I have done so far I believe I need to replace the Gas Valve Coil and/or the Thermal Fuse. I am not 100% sure about needing either or where I can buy them. Oh, I opened the dry and cleaned it out... nothing changed, same behavior.
I'd really appreciate any feedback about the symptoms, cause of the problem and where to buy parts online, etc.
