Question about Dryers
That is the correct model number I have it also.
I need to know where to locate the thermal fuse, thermal selenoids, and thermostats. I am going to have to replace the temperature control switch or cycle thermastat switch which ever name. I just replaced blower (yeah).
Now curiously after this am I going to have to check the gas stuff. the only thing was wrong was the blower wheel needed replacing but we arced out something. Yes we thought it was unplugged. What we unplugged was the washer because 17 years ago it was put in another type of surge protector and plug different color so bla bla stupid mistake made.

Gas flowing out of the valve with no flame would not be a comon condition, I assume that gas is flowing in lines.
Check thermal fuse if present.
Check if there is spark, if there is no spark, replace the igniter.
Test thermostats, this must read zero or low Ohms at room.
Check primary and secondary coil solenoids. You have two or three coils to test. They are tested reading Ohms, if they are open they must be replaced.
If solenoids are OK, the valve can be tested further by energizing directly . If solenoids and valve are OK, try replacing flame sensor.
If that does not fix the problem, last step is testing volts from central control unit and eventually replacing it.
The model number provided did not match any model. Some of the tests above must be done by a technician, better doing only tests that can be performed with power not connected.

Check the igniter if glowing red hot or not. If glowing then the problem is either the flame/radiant sensor on the burner cone or in most of the case the gas valve solenoid coils sitting on top of the gas valve assembly.
Check the continuity of the components on the blower housing and the heater duct. These components are wired in series with the gas valve assembly and any failure or discontinuity in one of them results in the gas valve coils not operating.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.
if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....
If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.
