Kenmore series 80 gas dryer lights once in the morning, then won't light again. Read through old posts and saw the most common problem was the valve coils. Replaced them, but the problem still occurs. The ingnitor glows, there is a loud click, no flame, the ignitor goes off. Delay, repeat. Any ideas?

Well, 95% of the times the coils work. But, every once in awhile the whole gas valve would need to be replaced. Just to be sure you don't have a malfunction flame sensor, I would unplug the dryer, and take the 2 wires off of the sensor, and jump them out. Cover the terminal ends with tape, so the stay together, and don't hit metal. If it works, replace the flame sensor. If not, replace the gas valve. Tom ********************************************
