Just sent in question but made a mistake when checking cycling thermostat component was closed not open when when cheching with ohm meter by removing blue and purple wires and with closed with wires connected is this my drying problem. Thanks

Paul for Model Number sdg515daww

ANSWER Paul, the regulating thermostat 503979 is probably not the issue. All thermostats in the dryer should have "closed" circuits, with the wires removed and when the thermostat is at room temperature(below 100 dgrs.). If you're sure the exhaust vent pipes and hood is clear, it sounds like a weak hi limit thermostat 489P3 or, a more likely weak gas valve coils 279834 Good Luck and Thanks
