If the oven is wired properly and correct polarity on the outlet, here is the power flow.
Power will come from the control board relay, through the ignitor, then goes to ground through the dual valve.
The resistance of the ignitor causes it to heat up, the hotter it gets the more power goes to the valve. When the amp draw gets to about 3.2 amps there is enough power for the valve to open and let the gas into the burner.
It is unusual for both the bake and broil functions to fail at the same time. They are separate circuits. The dual valve is actually 2 separate coils inside one housing.
If you have continuity through the ignitors and continuity through the valve coils, check the wiring from the valve to ground. These should be the white wires that come from the valve and connected together before going on to the main neutral connection.
Let me know what you find.

usually this means that your ignitor is weak and needs to be replaced. When the ignitor glows and NO gas flows through you need a new ignitor.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.
