When you first start dryer igniter lights up and coils open gas valve and burner lights after a minute the burner shuts down, igniter will relight up but burner won't fire. I have replaced the coils. Exhaust vent is clear and have good exhaust flow. If you open the door and close it then hit start it repeats the process above.

ANSWER Hello David. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the gas valve 8573072 is weak and will need to be replaced. Hope this helps.
