Hi...Dryer is 11 years old. As noted, ignitor is new and shows resistance. There is an E11 error code when running the diagnostics. I'm leaning toward replacing the Radiant flame sensor or coils but the E11 may have something to do with the "dry" sensor or motor?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Jim.

Found this on another site...

"What it Means: This is one of those GE dryer error codes that could suggest a larger problem. Code 11 signifies an issue with the dryer drum motor. The motor may not be turning properly or one of its switches requires replacement.

How to Fix: Replacing a GE dryer switch can be done at home if you’re an experienced DIYer. However, we recommend a professional service to assess other motor malfunctions and replace any switches if doing so is outside your comfort zone. After a repair, the code will be cleared after power to the dryer is restored."

Though this issue reports as a motor problem in the diagnostics, with help in another forum, I tested the coils and the main 2-prong coil is showing a dead short. The outlet control back up thermostat near the motor and the hi limit thermostat on the diffuser are both closed at room temp and good. I ordered a coil set and will go from there! Thanks for your reply. Jim.

Happy to report that the coil kit solved the problem. The main coil was bad, showing a dead short. Once replaced (both coils, while I was at it) and reassembled, things worked normally.

Thanks everyone for the help.
