For Whirlpool Flame Sensor (Part Number: AP2910747)

Dryer only heats for 10 minutes and will not relight on any setting. It has a new ignitor and new thermostat and all other sensors check out to your specs. Any ideas? I'm thinking the flame sensor, but it checks out ok when cold.

Scott for Model Number ngd4500vq gas

ANSWER Hello Scott, Based on the information provided, it appears that your secondary coil 279834 for your gas valve is bad. When the unit first comes on the main coil and secondary coil kick in. When it gets going the main cuts out and the secondary is supposed to keep unit going. When this coil is bad it will not allow the unit to reignite.
