When I start my dryer the ingnitor element glows and the gas turns on and ignites.
After it reaches it's temp the gas shuts off and the dryer keeps running. As the dryer starts to cool down the ignitor element starts to glow but the gas does not come on and ignite anymore.
I changed the termostate.
I also checked the three other sensors or fuses on the back of the dryer with a meter and they all seem to be working.
If I shut off the dryer and let it cool down it will do the same thing over again.

Hope you can help
Thomas C
