Question about Dryers
The first thing to look at would be the thermal fuse. It is usually mounted on the exhaust duct at rear of dryer. It's about one inch long. You can test it for continuity with a multimeter. If it has no continuity, it is bad and needs replaced. If the ignitor is glowing, but the gas isn't igniting, I would look next at the gas valve coils. They are right above the gas valves. They are solenoids that, when energized, open the gas valves. If the thermal fuse is not the problem, then I would look at the coils. It is hard to test them, so it is best to replace both (all) of them at the same time. Hope this helped and best wishes.
