Hi, My dryer is not heating. The ignitor clicks on and glows orange and cuts off but no blue flame appears. I have replaced the split coils but the problem remains. Is this my gas valve that is the problem? The gas to the dryer is fine and the venting system is fine as well.

ANSWER Hello Shannon, You would want to check your main coil. Let the unit cycle 4 or 5 times and then check resistance of the 2 pin main coil. You should read 1000 ohms. If you do not have 1000 ohms then you need to replace main coil 279834. If you do have the 1000 ohms then you would need to replace the safety valve 8318277
