Question about Dryers
Is it new with a piliot or electric ignitor, if is is piliot you could need a thermocoupling, if it is an electric ignitor you will need to change the ignitor, both are eazy on a dryer you have alot of room to do this, if it is an ignitor do not touch the carbon but take it out and take it to an appliance store that as parts, you must have it with you so that the hold down braket is the same and the plug is the same, if it is a thermocoupling it is just a screw that holds it in place and you can pull it out of the holder you don't have to be so gental, but it must be pushed all the way in the holder till it clicks

Hi, Remove the front lower panel so you can see what is going on. If the ignitor glows but gets no flame, you will need to replace the coils on top of the gas valve.
If the ignitor does not glow, check the fuse first and then thermostats to see if they have continuity..
THey are located on the blower housing.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.
2. Check for the continuity of the heating element in your gas dryer using a multimeter. Replace the element if continuity is not there.
3. Inspect the thermal fuse if it is burnt out, it is attached to the exhaust duct on the back panel of the gas dryer. Replace if necessary.
4. Check the igniter by first disconnecting it, and then place the probes onto the two contacts of the igniter. The meter should read under 100 Ohms of resistance, if it is above 100 then replace the igniter.
5. Check the continuity on the flame sensor. The sensors are usually located close by the igniter so are easily visible.
Hope this helps...
