Question about Dryers
First issue was ingiter would not glow - replaced defective timer and igniter began glowing, but will not light. have replaced both gas valve coils - same issue. I checked a working DG313 and notice after igniter glows, I get a distinct "click" and then the gas valve lights the burner. I never get a " click on the non-workinh unit - any suggestions on what to check next Thanks, John
Thermocouple. The igniter heats the thermocouple to turn on the gas valve and fire the burner.

90% of all gas dryers lighting intermittently is resolved with new coil packs on the gas valve. The coils are replacable fairly easily and inexpensive.
