i have done my trouble shooting but i continue to have intermittent heating problems. the burner comes on and off for about 30 seconds each time, the igniter gives a bright amber glow. the readings I took appear to be ok from: thermal switch (001), igniter (049) , burner valves (two prong: 1.2, three prong: 556), flame sensor switch (01) and the high limit thermostat (.04 and 7.1) the gas flow is ok (unobstructed) and the vent duct is clear. your assistance is greatly appreciated. thank you.

Gas ignites and only stays on for 5 seconds then shuts off. I have done the following: Cleaned the unit components and ductwork completely. Replaced blower wheel, burner assembly, all three coils on the gas valve and ignitor. Tested the Hi temp thermostat and it showed continuity. Then by-passed the thermostat by disconnecting the part and connecting the leads together. The gas ignited but the flame still shut off after 5 seconds. I have run the unit with the front panel on to insure proper air flow. What's next?

The gas flame is short cycling. The flame stays on for 5 seconds, burns with an acceptable colored flame then shuts off then repeats the process in about 1 minute. I have done the following: Cleaned all lint and residue from all ductwork and all components in the machine. Replaced the 3 gas valve coils(AP4008890), ignitor(304970), burner assembly(AP4044019)and blower wheel(303836). The flame sensor(AP2910747) & Hi-Limit Thermostat (AP4036956) tested good continuity. Checked all wires and connections for solid contact or damage. Operated the machine with the front panel installed to assure proper air flow. The problem remains the same. What would you recommend as my next step?

I ordered and received your part number WPL 303395 Thermostat for the appliance model number indicated. Problem is that the part on the applince is 4 terminals and the part received is 2 terminals. I took the part off the appliance it is reads (best i could do) S 3089100 and also has anoter marking that reads THERMO xxxG. How do I use this part which you say is a replacement to replace the one on the appliance having 4 terminals.

My dryer is not heating up correctly. The flame comes on for 10-15 seconds then goes out and does not come on again. Once cooled down the process repeats. When I remove the Hi - Limit Thermostat (placing it outside of the dryer) the flame comes on and stays on. However the temperature must get too hot becuase I smell a burning smell after about 3 minutes. Could this be a bad Hi-Limit Thermostat?

Is the high limit sensor the one on the side on the combustion cone? With this connected, the flame shuts off after about 15 seconds, then starts again after about 3 minutes. With it disconnected and the wires connected together, the flame stays on. Could this mean a bad part # AP4036956?
