Once the igniter lights the blower, will the sensor control the heat after the igniter go off?
Answer Hello, the flame sensor will sense the heat from the igniter and allow the gas valve to open. The solenoids control the gas flow, the heat is controlled by a cycling thermostat. Hope this helps!

Dryer comes on for about 10 seconds then turns off.
Answer Sounds like bad coils. Here is the part number for you. 279834

Our dryer tumbles and seems to have very little/no heat. Dryer sensor cycle does not work at all; runs continuously. After 2-3 hours basic loads are dry. What part should we try first?
Answer Hello Kim. 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
i HAVE A MAYTAG DG110 SER 01 When started the ing heats up but no flame. I have replaced all the coils and had been working fine untill this problem.
You will want to test the flame sensor in which it should read closed for continuity when testing. If it reads open then it is faulty and would need to be replaced.
No heat, coils chatter, igniter heats up first then coils chatter but no flame. What is wrong, is it the flame sensor?
Answer Hello Rich,
This can be caused by low gas pressure, a bad gas valve coil 279834, or a failing gas valve 8318277. The flame sensor will have nothing to do with this issue.
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.
