No Heat Kenmore Dryer MDL# 110.92822102

14 posts in this topic

My Kenmore dryer turns on like normal. Drum spins, solid exhaust out the exterior vent, but NO heat.

 

Any ideas where to start? There's no display for an error code. No "beeping" noises for a code either!

Fuse showed good but, replaced with a new one anyway. Disconnected and cleaned the entire vent/metal tubing.

 

Started dryer and it heated, then shut off again! Suggestions?

Would the flame sensor shut off the heat like a furnace flame sensor does? Burner doesn't stay on long. 

 

My wife mentioned that she has been using a low heat setting as the dryer seemed to be hotter than

 

normal.

remove the front Kick Panel and observe the operation / timing of the glow Ignitor and the Flame

How long does the Flame stay ON ?

When the Flame shuts OFF, how long before the Ignitor glows again ?

Just tried to start it again. This time, the  ignitor came on but, the burner never started and the ignitor went off. 

 

Ignitor goes out after 10-12 seconds. After about 45 seconds it comes on again. The burner doesn't come on anymore.

 

I shut the dryer off, unplugged it, disconnected the flame sensor and it has continuity. No gas coming out.  Started it again,

 

same cycle. Burner was coming on when this all started, now it isn't!

1) weak Gas Valve Coils

2) "Flame Sensor" works (senses Ignitor heat)

3) Ignitor glows because Flame Sensor has continuity (until hot)

4) weak Gas Valve Coils

OK, bought 4 different parts but, not those! I'll have to wait until Tuesday before I can buy those. Thank you VERY much!

 

I'll update when I get the coils installed.    :thanks:

The only "Glitch" was after putting in the Model number of my dryer, the gas valve kit didn't show as one of the

 

150+ parts they had for it. So, I didn't pick them up on Monday before they closed for Labor Day. Set me back a day on the repair.

 

But, I was glad that they did have the part, just that the link wasn't setup properly. Fortunately "RegUs_PatOff" posted the solenoid link for me. Mentioned

 

it to the employee working the counter so, hopefully their tech support looked into it. This site has saved my bacon a number of times. Almost makes me

 

look like I know what I'm doing around the house!  :thumbsup:
