Question about Dryers
I have a may tag dryer dg 412 my flame was going off to soon about 9 seconds I have replaced the igniter the gas valve coils and the heart sensor on the flame/blower housing but I did not unplug before doing this and shorted one of the heat sensor wires to the flame housing and now the igniter does not glow red any ideas
For starters you should always unplug any electrical device before you start working on it. You probably fried the sensor that the wire was going to. Once you replace the sensor it will probably work just fine.

SOURCE: no heat
You may have a weak igniter. Just because the igniter glows, does not mean it is working properly. The glow bar type igniters are supposed to draw a certain amount of current in order for the gas valve to open. If the current potential is never met, the gas valve will not open. This is a safety feature used to prevent gas flow without ignition. The current readings for the igniters are as follows: Round style glow bar: 2.7 to 3.2 amps Square style glow bar: 3.2 to 3.7 amps If it is reading less than the required amperage, replace it. This may just solve your problem. Let me know if this helps you.

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.

About all that is left to replace is the flame sensor mounted at 9o'clock on burner flame tube, but I would double check your airflow, This is CRUCIAL to the normal operation of the dryer.
Also, a lint filter with an invisible coating from fabric sheets can cause an airflow disruption, try running without clothes and the filter removed.
Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint.
