by removing the drum it will free up a lot more space.
(ps) i know what you mean i busted my knuckles more that once when replacing the flame sensor BUT however since the ignitor does go off it is the coils on the gas valve and not the flame sensor ,if the flame sensor where bad the ignitor would come on and stay on for a real long time because the sensor would not be satisfied that the ignitor was/is on
I base my opinion on 30 years experience as a appliance repair technician and in sympthoms such as yours i would replace the gas vavle coils and totally disregard the flame sensor as to the root of the trouble

Since you are already this far you have some knowledge of how you dryer works. What is wrong now is the heat sensor that picks up that the pilot is on. The pilot should burn at a steady flame when you turn the dryer on to heat this in turn heats a probe next to the piolit this is a type of heat sensor. When the probe or heat sensor senses heat it tells the gas valve that its okay to turn on. Have a great day and hope this helps.

Gas maytag dryer not heating up


check the thermal fuse in the dryer vent duct to be open,then if not the flame eye" radiant sensor" or the high-limit thermostat both on the burner tube if the sensor doesn't see(sense) a flame the gas valve will stay shut,then check the gas valve coils,both the BOOST and SECONDARY coil valves on the gas valve body as these can open up and not gas into the burner

Dryer not drying


First thing to check is the vent. Make sure you have sufficient air flow to the outside. If you are not sure if you have the proper rate of flow, disconnect the vent from the dryer, turn dryer on and see if burner stays on longer. Do this with a couple of damp, spun-dry towels inside the drum. If the burner short cycles again, you need to replace the coils on top of the burner assembly. These are the two black round coils.

Kenmore Elite HE3 Gas Dryer - Heat flame will not ignite


The Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

Check to see if ignite is glowing and then goes back out. If it does, it probably needs a set of burner coils. If it glows but doesn't go out, it probably needs a flame sensor. This is box on side of burner tube.
