Low heat setting won't dry clothes
The gas dryer works fine in the Regular/Cotton setting (high heat), but doesn't seem to be heating on the Permanent Press setting (low heat). We've cleaned the moisture sensors repeatedly to no avail. I pulled off the front, back and top, and performed continuity tests on all limit switches and thermostats I could find, ignitor, and flame sensor. I also tested the moisture sensor for continuity, but I don't know if it should have continuity or not (it didn't). I did find what looked like a small temperature sensor of some kind at the back of the burner tube that didn't have continuity but I don't know what that sensor is, or if it should have continuity. Any suggestions?
