Question about Dryers
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.
It sounds like you are pretty capable with a multi-meter. Best tool you could have.
Forget a whole new gas assembly. When you Ohm the ignitor what was your readings. If the ignitor, lights, it could be going bad.
An ignitor can light, glow red, and yet be too week to open the gas valve.
The major failure with your dyer is either the ignitor or the temperature thermal fuse. I think the iginator.
Also check the gas valve. Ohm it out. Sometimes, the valve will sick. You need to knock it with a hammer to start. If it starts, repeat this cycle about 8 times to free the valve up.
