Question about Dryers
You should check igniter first when the dryer is started. It should glow
red hot to ignite the gas. The issue is with the gas valve coils if the
igniter glows red hot but no gas is ignited; replace both coils. On the
other hand if the igniter fails to glow red hot, check the continuity
of the thermal fuse and/or cycling thermostat on the blower housing and
the high-limit thermostat on the burner assembly. You can bypass all of
them then start the dryer. The burner should fire up then stop the dryer
and un-bypass each of them one a time then restart the dryer. In this
manner, you will be able to find the culprit. Replace it and the dryer
should start firing up and working properly. Do not use the dryer with
the previously mentioned components permanently bypassed to avoid fire
