My dryer is not heating. I checked for the igniter and it heats up fine but no flame ignites. I am assuming I need both coils. Also when it was working properly the clothes seemed to be extremely hot sometimes. I am assuming this may be the high limit thermostat. Please advise. Andrew

ANSWER Hello Andrew. You will need to test the thermostat 303395 and the flame sensor 338906 and make sure they are good. They should read closed for continuity. Also, check the igniter 4391996 and make sure it is getting hot enough to light the gas. If all of this is good, replace the coils 279834. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter for the testing procedures. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
