I have a dryer wirlpool model #LGR 5636EQ2. We have checked all connections. Ran continuity checks on all wires and sensors. Ignitor has continuity between wires. We have the gas disconnected but I don't think that should stop the ignitor from coming on The motor runs the timmer runs the door switch works the pust start button works. HELP!!!!

remove the top cover,then the front cover,then check the burner tubes ignitor or glo-bar that ignites the gas,the high-limit thermostat on the burner tube for continuity,the thermal fuse and cycling switch on the blower housing both of these should show continuity or good like a standard fuse would show

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating
the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows
sometimes it is still not working properly.
If the ignitor glows but does not light the burner you need to replace the gas valve coils. If there is no glow you must check all the thermostat safeties and thermal cutout fuses for continuity with a ohm meter. No continuity is a bad component. Remove at least one wire from each component before testing. Unplug the dryer before any test.
flame sensor is closed when dark, open with the ignitor light. Thermostat is closed when cold, open when reach temperture. Ignitor is a closed circut but high resistant value, put your meter on 10k. Also to the gas valve 110volts be carefull.
Check the switch on the motor. It may have failed, or has a wire/terminal broken/disconnected. It is a multi-contact switch. both sections must click. Could also be mechanically loose on the motor and therefore just not getting fully activated.
removing hte front panel will gain you acess to the ignitor assy, it plugs in to a harness, to ck it unplug the harnes and check ignitor for continuity. or carefully plug a meter into machine side of harnes and turn unit on your loooking for 110v. if you have 110v and ignitor not lighting you have bad ignitor, if no voltage present id look toward a bad thermal fuse
remove the back panel and check the thermal fuse ( its white maybe 2inches by half inch 2wires leading to it. the most common problem. if thats good( a continuity test will tell,you want continuity thorugh the fuse).then i would check the ignitor assy.that s check also with continuity test, you can also checkt he plug leading to the ignitor for 110v, ifyou got powerr there and ignotir doesnt light you will need ignitor
