Customer Question

I have a Kenmore gas Dryer circa 1997 that has stopped producing heat. The plate on the inside of the door says it is a model number 76812693 76812. The original paperwork indicates it is a 110.768123693. Gas input is good, just no heat. What component failure usually causes this and is it worth the $ to fix it?

The thermal fuse is most likely your problem here. Watch this video to locate it. If you have a multimeter you can test it for continuity to see if it is bad.
