Our Kenmore 11092822101 Gas Dryer stopped heating. All functions on my dryer appear to work, but it is not generating any heat. On any heat generating cycle, the ignitor never glows, so I checked to see if it is getting any power, and the wires to the ignitor do not appear to be getting any juice. The hi-temp thermostat, ignitor and the flame sensor are closed for continuity, the two prong coil will reads 1,318 ohms (just outside of range), and the three prong coil reads 1,380 ohms across prongs 1&2, and 562 ohms across prongs 1&3. Several of the threads read plural thermostats, so am I missing one? What else do I need to check? Thanks.

Charles for Model Number kenmore 11092822101

ANSWER Charles, start at the gas valve, disconnect the wire harness, start the dryer in a drying cycle,Check for 120 VAC from the blue wire terminal to chassis ground(not the gas valve connection). No voltage would indicate an open thermal fuse 3390719, an open hi limit switch W10423382 , or a faulty heater relay on the control board 8546219, or a broken wire. You're right, you only have one(1) thermostat in your dryer, the hi limit switch. The Thermistor 8577274 on the blower housing controls the temperature in the drum and should have a resistance of 10,000 ohms at room temperature. If there is no voltage on the blue wire at the gas valve connector. the flame sensor and the igniter will not function, based on your post description, you next check is for voltage to the gas valve.
