The gas will not come out. I have replaced the coils (coils chatter). Is this a bad heat sensor?
Answer Hello Richard,
This would be caused by low gas pressure, a bad coil 279834 on the gas valve or a failing gas valve 8318277.
How do I know if the flame sensor is bad?
Answer Hello Steve. It should read closed for continuity and then open when it gets hot.
Having issues with a gas dryer,just put in new motor and blower. Now have trouble getting fire or burner on, igniter glows for a few seconds, but no heat,also had changed coil pack, thought it might be of help,old pack are still good.getting good reading,
Answer Juan, if the igniter does it's job and ignites the gas, but the flame is only on for a few seconds, you'll need to check for a clogged exhaust vent system, or blockage in the air duct on the front panel 131621900. If the igniter doesn't glow or is a constant glow, then test ot replace the flame sensor 338906. If the igniter glows then cycles off, but there is no flame, you'll need to check for proper gas supply to the gas valve and check for any loose connections to the new coils.
Drum spins but no voltage going to gas valve solenoids or ignitor. What next?
Answer Hello Mike. You will need to test the thermostats and the flame sensor and make sure they are good. They should read closed for continuity. Also, check the igniter to see if it is good. If it is not glowing, test for power. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter for the testing procedures. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Dyer runs but does not ignite. I can see the igniter glow but do not smell gas or have any flame. Should the fuse in the back be normally closed and how do I check the or sensors and such?

my dryer works does not heat up changed both thermostats and glow plug no flame could it be a flame senser?
Answer Rando, Yes, the issue could be the flame sensor 338906, But there are still other possible, more likely issues. Remove the lower access panel, and start the dryer in a heat cycle. observe what occurs, if the igniter 279311 comes on and glows "white hot" and cycles off, the flame sensor is not the issue. The issue would be in the gas valve coils 279834 or no gas supplied to the dryer.
