The wire terminals may be different sizes, to only go on one way. If not, no big deal....the radiant sensor acts just like an in line switch, so it really will not affect the operation whichever way the wires go on.

How do I test continuity on the sensors?

if it ignites then it's not the sensor,all you do with the meter is whatever part you're checking remove at least one of the wires,then put one lead on one side of the part and the other on the other side where the wire connects,set the meter on like 20k ohms,if the 1 stays there the part is bad if you get any other reading other than 1 the part is good,if it ignites for the first or second time check the gas coils on top of the gas valve,when the coils are starting to fail they will work fine until they heat up and then no flame,then when they cool down they could work again or you have a bad gas valve,sometimes when the gas valve is bad it will chatter and be noisy and might ignite or not,you can try tapping on the valve when the ignitor starts to glow to see if it lites but like i say if it's igniting the sensor is good there's no gas, i believe when the sensor is bad the ignitor will sit there and glow for a long time without any flame if the sensor is good the ignitor will glow for like 10 seconds and go out if there's no gas coming in from a bad gas valve or bad gas coils but it's getting no gas,hope this helps you out and if you have any other questions open the door to dryer and send the full model number so i can help you out better

You need to check the solinoids on the gas vale. They might work to start but after they heat up some they possibly could break down and shut off. There are 2 coils on the valve. When you first start the dryer you should head a distinctive loud click noise. that is the primary coil opening the valve. When that happens you should also see the glow bar lighting. after the bar lights you should hear one more loud click. Thats the heat sensor opening and allowing the other coil to open to allow gas to flow and ignite. If you do not hear the first click when you start the dryer, look in the back for a small white rectangular fuse with 2 small wires on it. (they may be blue in color) That is a thermal fuse. Use a ohm meter to check if it is pen. If it is replace it.If you heard the first click and the glow bar starts to light but nothing else happens, you eed to check the heat sensor. It is connected to the flame baffle at the end of the gas valve. It will have 2 wires on it. One white and one blue I belive. It is attached by 1 screw. ( 1/4") You will need to check that out with a meter also. If it checks good reinstall it. You will then want to ohm out both coils. Only one may be bad but I recomend you replace the both of them. You will also want to make sure that your vent is not clogged up. That too can cause the dryer to short cycle. Hope this will help you.

Maytag gas dryer model SDG4606AWW timer wont rotate on any cycle, dryer just keeps running until knob is rotated manualy to off, replaced timer and new one is doing the same, took dryer compltley apart,...

I don't have a Maytag schematic handy but there should be one on or in the dryer. Trace the clock wiring back until until you get voltage. I am betting one leg of the time motor goes to the drum motor (Gray wire maybe) and the other leg to the dryness sensor module (brown wire). Check these wires against both Line and Neutral. That should tell of it's the module or the motor block.

Gas will not turn on to heat dryer...igniter is ok...tested new solinoids for gas valve seems to be back to timer but do not know for sure took that apart and points seem to be ok no hot spots...

Sometimes the heat sensor/ igniter gets carboned up and needs to be lightly sanded or cleaned for it to sense heat. That could prevent the main gas valve from opening and staying open. Also, does your unit have a heat limit switch or thermal switch that could be faulty? Check the wiring diagram.

Whirlpool Gas Dryer keeps running on auto dry setting

When you moved the sensor wire on the moisture sensor may have fallen off.
Remove the front panel and locate the wire and the connection. It will be on the right side near the lint filter vent. If it is still connected your timer has gone bad.

Whirlpool gas Dryer LGR5636JQ1

theres a thermal fuse located on back panel usually white maybe 2 inches tall 1/2 wide 2 blue wires leading to it. ck for continuity, if none replace that(most common problem)... if good you can go back to the ignitor and unplug the white connector it plugs into. place your meter leads into the connector and turn on dryer, you should get 110v. if you do you have a bad ignitor, if not a thermo's gone bad (check the thermal fuse first though.
