Question about Kenmore Dryers
The 3 pin coil is your booster and holding coil and it ignites the 2 pin secondary coil. Is the flame blue or yellow? I would change both. Coils are a lot cheaper than the whole gas valve assembly.
Make sure to check the dryer's airflow. If the dryer is ducted, pull the machine away from the duct and try starting it again. Does the dryer have some sort of electronic control which is sensing an error and terminating the heating circuit? If there is it would be a box type thing located near the gas valve and it would have lights flashing on it. If that's the case, it's a new problem in itself as you would need an error code listing to begin looking.
Assuming air flow is good and gas supply pressure hasn't dropped (also check that gas inlet hose is kink free) and it is the coils that are failing, change both and fix your problem
