Hi,

**kenmore gas dryer mod 110-726522100**

Model# won't come up for me :(

110.######## is a Whirlpool built Kenmore.

** i opened the front wall and started the dryer. it tumbled ok but no flame from the ignitor**

Did the hot surface ignitor glow red at all? That is often a good place to start.

Some *common* helps for a gas dryer.....

Check for power to the ignitor, proper power there but no red glow = new ignitor time....no power there = problem elsewhere! ( like the thermal fuse, open coil, ect ).

looks like no power to the ignitor or any where in the area of the gas valve wires and coils. the motor runs, the buzzer buzzes, the tumbler tumbles. what else. thanks

No power to the ignitor....( since the model# wouldn't come up, can't confirm if it has one ) but if the thermal fuse is open ( on the fan blowewr ) the ignitor will not work...also an ohm ( no continuity ) the coils on the gas valve and the flame sensor as they can also prevent the ignitor from comming on.

i checked the thermal fuse by connecting the two wires for testing. i ran the dryer and the ignitor came on and the heat started right up. good help. thanks.

A couple common thermal fuses.

Clean/adjust/check the venting system and vent hood as a good place to start, an restriction can cause this to blow.
