Dryer still wont heat after replacing some parts.
4 months ago I replaced the ignitor with sucess, dryer has been working fine since then. A few days ago I noticed that clothes are taking forever to dry. What it does now: With all covers on, Ignitor glows orange flame will not ignite, dryer will keep trying to ignite every half minute or so. With the front cover off, ignitor will glow, flame will light but only burn for 30 seconds, shut off and repeat. I have been running these tests with the vent flue unhooked so that there is no chance of a blockage. Looked through all passages and there is a clear path for airflow.
Was told that is is not the flame sensor because the ignitor is coming on so I bought and installed new coils last night. Problem still exists. Ignitor glows, no flame, process repeats.
Is it possible that the flame sensor is bad? I now have a newer ignitor and new coil kit installed but no heat?

Thank you in advance.
Jeff

90% of the times you can get away with just replaceing the coils on the gas valve. But every once in awhile you have to replace the whole valve. If the ignitor comes on the circuit between the sensor and the ignitor are good. There could be a remote possibility, that the ignitor is not glowing bright enough to open the gas valve. But, being that it is only 4 months old, I would doubt it. Tom ********************************************

How about a test for the flame sensor? I was told that I could do a test to it with the unit still in the dryer.

You could always pull one wire off the sensor, and check continuity. If you have it, it is good, or if you are brave when the ignitor comes on, you can pull the bottom wire off the sensor. If the flame comes out it is the sensor, if not it is the coils or the gas valve. Tom www.applianceeeducator.com

OK, I'm brave. I started the dryer, ignitor glowed orange, I reached in and pull a wire off the sensor and the flame ignited, burned for a few minutes and shut off.
