My dryer stopped heating up so I took a guess and replaced the igniter. That didn't help so I removed the flame sensor and found the glass in it was broken and a large piece missing. Can you confirm that this may cause my gas to shut off after a few seconds of burn time? ALSO I forgot to take note of which color wires attached to which leads on the sensor. There is a gray wire and a white wire, and one of the sensor leads is marked with some RED substance, can you help?
ANSWER Hello Teammate. Yes, if the sensor 6501EL3001A is bad on the unit, it will prevent the burner from working properly. The wires are a closed circuit, so they can be connected either way on the sensor. Hope this helps.
