I have a Kenmore gas dryer Model 110.74212200. My wife reports

Customer Question

I have a Kenmore gas dryer Model 110.74212200. My wife reports the dryer drum was still turning the next morning after being started the previous evening in the "less dry" (moisture-sensing) mode. What is the likely cause?

is the heat working? is it getting hot?

I don't know. I lifted the top and took off the front panel to gain access to the burner / motor area. It's not back together yet. Is there a way to differentiate between a moisture sensor problem and an ignitor / flame sensor problem?
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
the first thing we need to do is see if the igniter is comming on, can you jump out the door switch and start the dryer and tell me if the igniter is comming on?
