Here is my problem I can't get this dryer to ignite so there is no flame even through the igniter lights up and but it never ignites the gas all the thermostats and thermal fuse are good. I need some help to figure this thing out maybe the flame sensor or the gas vale or maybe the timer is bad can you Please help me with this problem. I tried to find a model number behind the door but it not listed even through all the stickers are there.

Hi Allen,

I've seen couple times when the gas shut off valve behind the dryer was Off. Did you check it? Also some models do have additional shut off valve next to the gas valve inside the dryer. In other word, verify the gas supply for the dryer.

there appear to be gas going to it however it may not be making it to the igniter there does not appear to be a cut off near the coils is there a way to see if gas is making it to the igniter i just replaced the coils and the flame sensor however it still won't ignite the gas as through there is no gas reaching the igniter also i have checked the thermal fuse and it's good. can the timer be bad or the gas assembly be at fault?

As long as the igniter does glow, there is nothing wrong in the ignition circuit.

If the gas shut off valve behind the dryer is completely open and there is proper pressure in the gas supply line, then the problem is a bad dryer gas valve.

So the assembly it's self is bad and not the coils is this what you mean?
