the igniter works fine, i know this, because i have pulled the front off and tested it.the solenoids seem to allow it to fire up once or twice, after that the igniter will glow very bright, no gas flows and the igniter fades to off. i've pulled the front off twice, cleaned the pins on the solenoids with a wire brush sprayed contact cleaner on both pins and plugs.put it back together and it lit a flame, came back and found wet clothes, sure enough the solenoids are not letting gas out.
This issue sounds like the coils on the safety valve are faulty and would need to be replaced. The part number for the coils is 279834
