Hi Bryan. Sorry for the delay. I was pulled form my mission.
Yes, the igniter glows. Within approx 3 seconds, it lit the chamber and a flame was present. Approx. 10 seconds later the flame went out, the igniter did start glowing again, but there no no additional "fires" of the heating chamber. I observed this cycle of igniter glows, no fire, system clicks, repeated several times.
Pulling the exhaust vent will require me to pull the washer out of the room so I can get to the exhaust vent, else I try and slip a 13 year old in behind the dryer and hope for the best, like not stepping on the gas line and rupturing it :).
Assuming the thing fires off continuously with the vent off, does that send us in a different direction than the coils or simpley mean the vent duct is clogged?
I will pay you for your time, you can be assurred, I just don't want to go there unless it leads to a different part change out vs. the coils. I did witness a good flow of air at the outside house vent of the dryer.
