Old whirlpool gas dryer (LGR4634BQ1) - no heat. Problem

Customer Question

Old whirlpool gas dryer (LGR4634BQ1) - no heat. Problem started after disconnecting it and moving it from the room. Was careful moving it. Hooked back up and no heat. Checked igniter, high limit fuse, high thermostat, and just for good measure, replaced solenoids on gas valve- still no heat. It had been working just fine before moving it. Any ideas?

The first thing you need to do is see if you have a gas problem or electric problem. To do this, just take the dryer apart and run the cycle without the drum installed. Look at the igniter and does the igniter glow when the dryer is running and trying to heat?
