Question about Dryers
The previous problem is addressed by replacing the high-limit thermostat according to your last post. The igniter is definitely working since the gas is being ignited.
Yes there's a flame sensor along with the igniter on the burner cone and it must be not working properly. The cycling thermostat is good as per previous troubleshooting, the high-limit thermostat has been replaced, and the igniter is good. These findings and observations suggest that the flame sensor is not working properly. It is either dislodged from its proper position and cannot sense properly the heat from the flame and the igniter or it is faulty and needs to be replaced.
Check that the flame sensor is aligned properly with the slot on the burner cone. Replace the sensor if it is aligned properly. The sensor looks like this.
