My Repair & Advice
First, because of a video i saw and without doing much further research, i replaced the flame sensor which did not solve the problem. Then i ASSumed it was the thermostat and replaced that, which again did not solve the problem. Then i did a little more research and identified just about the only other thing it seemed it could be which was the gas valve coils, which i replaced AND DID SOLVE THE PROBLEM. :)
Since the other two older parts could fail at any time i just kept them so this dryer should hopefully last a lot longer.
In all three instances the parts were shipped standard. The first two arrived the 2nd day after the order and the last part arrived the next day!! I've never witnessed such efficiency in my life.
