Laundry room got flooded and the old kenmore gas dryer (model 11097278800 ) stopped running completely. Not even a buzz when I started it.
I replaced the motor and now the dryer runs but does not heat up. I need some help figuring out the next steps and picking what else to replace. I'd like to order all the parts at once so I hope I'm not leaving anything out.
I removed the bottom front panel and ran the dryer and noticed that the igniter did not glow. That's going to get replaced.
I disconnected the wiring harness where the two wires that come from the back connect to the two wires that power the heating components. Voltage read 120V while the dryer was on a hot cycle. I think that means all the components accessible on the back of the dryer (thermal fuse and thermostat) are all working fine. Correct?
Any problems I'm having should be around the burner if that's right. The glow bar igniter (279311) obviously needs to be replaced. The two solenoids (694540) may be fine but I'm planning to replace them because they're cheap and might as well. Then there's this little black box on the outside of the cone that surrounds the burn chamber on the left. I think that's the radiant sensor (338906). Part #9 on this diagram http://c.searspartsd...61844-00003.png The scale of the cone threw me off at first.
Am I leaving anything out? Anything else I should consider or test?
