The igniter is good or broken, no in between on these dryers, if it checks good need to see where you have lost voltage to the igniter.

I do not have the foggiest what the voltage to the igniter is, if it ohms out good and is not coming on you have lost power to this igniter, could be timer, heat selector switch, motor switch 1-2, cycling thermostat, safety thermostat, flame switch....need to see where you have lost voltage or start ohming out the parts to see which shows to be open...pull the tech sheet in the console and see what all your dryer has in the heat circuit and start tracing this circuit..

Unplug the harness connector to the ignitor or follow the two ignitor leads and disconnect them. Now set you meter to measure the voltage at those two points that supply power to the ignitor-- NOT the ignitor leads themselves, but what they attach to. Turn the range on to bake. Should read 120v.

Also measure the continuity of the bimetal in the gas valve.

The Sensei is weak from pulverizing rocks with his hands to make sand for his driveway in the great white north of New Hampshire. He meant to say, start the dryer in a heat mode, take a voltage check at your two wires and see what you read. If you read 120VAC, bad Igniter. If you do not, while it is running take a reading from both leads to ground to see if you have your L1 leg coming down. Do you have 120VAC from either wire to chassis ground. Do these cks and we will trace it from there.

Ah, 'tis the cooking season and had ovens on the brain... or had my head in the oven. Thanks, TTH. :dude:
