Question about Hotpoint NLL113EYWO Electric Dryer
The dryer is not drying. The gas valve doesn't seem to be opening after the first cycle and makes a slight rattling sound when it seems to be trying to open. Is there such thing as an intermittent valve? The solenoids ohm out ok.
there are several subsystems that turn off the gas if they fail,
thermal overload fuse, shuts off the gas
Igniter system includes heat &or optical flame sensors that turn off the gas if igition fails.
the image above shows igniter and optical flame sensors on the end of the gas line inside the duct,
Before testing any igniter parts turn off the gas at the shutoff( the gas is on when you try to run the dryer right (dumb Q 101))
- gas solenoids do not switch on until the igniter has reached operating temperature, and clilcked off, so any problems in the igniter or optical sensors show up in the gas valves as well

Still may be solenoids belive it or not the coils could become weak and fail to pull open valve recommend changing both at same time
