Customer Question

HI! MY QUESTION IS I HAVE A DLG7188RM DRYER WITH AN ICON WITH A SHIRT BLOWING AND MY DRYER IS NOT DRYING MY CLOTHES. I JUST REPLACED THE DRYER IGNITOR, THERMISTER ASSEMBLY AND MOISTURE SENSORS. AND MY DRYER STILL ISNT HEATING UP. I JUST ALSO ORDERED A THERMOSTAT AND A HIGH LIMIT THEMOSTAT. NOT SURE IF THOSE ARE THE RIGHT THINGS TO ORDER. BUT WAS JUST WONDERING IF THOSE ARE THE TWO THINGS THAT I ORDERED WILL SOLVE MY DRYER PROBLEM.

The flame sensor can be tested
