Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer
Dryer runs normally (all buttons work,drum turns,inside light works) but dryer won't fire up. I replaced the ignitor and it fired up when i tested it a couple of times. went to use it and again no flame. is there something else that is causing the ignitor to shut off. would there be a bad theremostat preventing the flame, if so, is the ignitor toast again.
Does the ignition glow when you start the dryer? if so you have power to gas valve and ignition system. if not you may have an open thermostat or thermalfuse.
If the ignitor just sits there and glows all day, you have other problems, It could be a gas valve, or ignitor sensor.
