Question about Kenmore 74602 Gas Dryer
The dryer ignites fine from a cold start, but will not start a 2nd time
during operation. The igniter lights up fine but the valves do not open
to let the gas out.
Thermal fuse is fine and tested. It does not seem to be the solenoid "coils" because they open the valves from a "cold" start. Radiant sensor glass is clean, not broken, and not smokey inside - so it looks OK.
Any ideas? Is there a way to test the radiant sensor? Thanks in advance. . .
Oldfixer was right on the money! I had the same issue (would fire off the first time then just cycle through lighting the igniter, no more fire) - replaced the coils - and she's good as new! Thanks oldfixer

Still suspect coils they have been known to not pull in on restart especially after a warm up if sensor bad probably wouldn't start first time both coils come in a kit replace both
