Curious: Iam pretty sure you know what your doing. What if I replace the gas valve coils and the problem persist?
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
if the dryer lits then goes out without restarting the gas coils are weak, the are magnetic and get weak after a few years, this is the most common reason. if by chance it doesn't fix the issue just leave this question open and come back and reply. I will get your reply, I'm pretty confident this is the problem however. thanks Bryan
