I have a dryer that was in my basement during the flood. I dont think the dryer came up enough to do any damage but I wanted to inspect it first.

glow plug comes on and burner fires up fine. How long should I expect the burner to run each time the flame comes on? It is based on a timer or a sensor? It seemed the heat only came on for maybe 15 seconds at a time but it did feel like it was making it hot enough so there may not be a problem

Is 15 seconds or so of flame each time it comes on correct?

Flame time depends on the temperature setting; and whether you're using timed dry. or sensor-drying. During timed dry cycles, the thermostats control the cycling of the heat. This is also controlled by the heat temperature setting.

During the sensor drying cycle, the flame is controlled by the moisture sensor. If water made it up to the dryer door, you may want to clean off the moisture sensor contacts (In a Maytag dryer, they're the two long metal bars in the front of the dryer compartment)with alcohol.
