Kenmore Dryer doesn't heat
Greetings Trouble-shooting Team,
I have a Kenmore dryer (model #110 72702101) that has been tried and true until recently. It will spin clothes just fine, although it recently stopped heating our clothing. I opened it up and checked the thermal fuse, the gas valve solenoid, dryer igniter and heating element. I also checked the high limit thermostat. Most of the checks were completed with an ohm meter, which registered a score close to 0 when the various parts were removed and tested. I did notice that the dryer igniter did fire up leading to flames when I checked the gas valve solenoid. I cleaned out the inside of lint and ensured that the lint trap and dryer exhaust were free of lint as well. After I checked everything and reassembled the dryer, it ran with heat for a short while, then turned off again, leaving the clothes to once again spin aimlessly.
Any and all help concerning this issue would be most welcomed and appreciated.
