Question about Admiral Dryers
Replaced igniter, still not lighting, continuity test of igniter, flame sensor, thermal fuse, top thermostats and bottom thermostat all have continuity.
I have no idea what dryer your talking about due to the fact that there is no model number posted!
most dryers have two thermal fuses which can be found in the diagram.
The timer can be at fault with a contact not closing.
Motor switch could be at fault, closes heat circuit after motor starts. Diagram again!
dDont throw parts at it until you verify the cause, you have spent enough already.

You may have a weak igniter. Just because the igniter glows, does not mean it is working properly. The glow bar type igniters are supposed to draw a certain amount of current in order for the gas valve to open. If the current potential is never met, the gas valve will not open. This is a safety feature used to prevent gas flow without ignition. The current readings for the igniters are as follows: Round style glow bar: 2.7 to 3.2 amps Square style glow bar: 3.2 to 3.7 amps If it is reading less than the required amperage, replace it. This may just solve your problem. Let me know if this helps you.

You may want to disconnect the vent from the back of the dryer and try it. Flame rollback will cycle the burner off by the high limit.
Considering what you have already done to it, if the problem still exists you probably have bad coils on the gas valve. make sure you replace them as a set.
The thermal fuse is a one time device. If it opens, the burner will not come on at all.

Remove 1 wire from the element . Your 220 V comes from ...110 motor , 110 control board . Check which wire is not getting 110 V , trace it and see which it comes from . That will tell you which one is defective .

flame sensor is closed when dark, open with the ignitor light. Thermostat is closed when cold, open when reach temperture. Ignitor is a closed circut but high resistant value, put your meter on 10k. Also to the gas valve 110volts be carefull.

SOURCE: igniter won't glow
I am assuming that everything works OK except you have no heat?
When you turn on dryer listen for gas valve to click(this may take a few seconds).If you don't have a click then the gas valve my be bad or it is not getting power.
Dryer has to be running to check for power only experienced persons should perform machine running power tests.
Let me know If I can do anything else to help.
