    Check your igniter (look for the glowing element). If that comes on and then shuts off, the gas secondary valve coil is suspect. If the ignitor doesn't glow, check it with an ohmmeter (should read zero) with the dryer UNPLUGGED. If it reads high, the ignitor is bad. Other suspect items would be the high limit sensor (in the combustion chamber) timer, radiant sensor (in the combustion chamber).

you need to inspect the ignitor/glow coil that ignites the gas in the burner tube as they are very fragile,then on the burner tube body check the radint sensor eye it can be dirty,clean it first or then replace it,the gas valve boost and secondary coils on the gas valve could have been damaged and they keep the gas valve open to supply gas to the burner,then also check the thermal fuse on the vent blower housing as water could have ruined this component,also check all wire connections for water corrosion too

You vent is plugged very bad. Disconnect the vent tubing and thoroughly clean it out. It will heat and dry like new afterwards guaranteed. These dryers have sensors that shut the burner off if the exhaust is not venting properly. Once its cleared out it will run perfectly again

The cooktop igniter wont stop firing even when turned off


one of your burner switches either got wet or shorted out. These switches are located on the burner valve itself. Sometimes you can take a hair dryer, pull the knobs of the control valve and dry out the switch. If this doesn't work, more than likley one of the switches gone bad.
