Kenmore Gas Dryer 70 series won't heat
« on: August 18, 2011, 10:44:57 PM »
Along the same lines.... I have a really old dryer  part number is 11087570100.  The ignitor glows but won't light.  Also dryer does not turn itself off.  Don't know if the problems are related or I coincidentally have 2 issues.   Any suggestions?

If it glows continuously, it's a bad flame sensor, Part # 338906.  If it glows off and on, it's bad gas valve coils, Part # 279137. A dryer will not turn itself off in the automatic cycle if there's no heat.



Part # 338906 Flame Sensor, AP2910747






Part # 279137 Coil Kit for Dryer Gas Valve (3 Coils), AP3094108
