My husband is not here right now but I'm really the one who does more of the repairs and if I have it in writing I can share it with him if I can't figure it out
Expert:  Engineer-Tech replied 6 months ago.

No problem. I assume you have a gas supply to the dryer, but I have to ask.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
the gas is hooked up and is working fine
Expert:  Engineer-Tech replied 6 months ago.

Ok, I am putting together a check list for you. One moment.

Expert:  Engineer-Tech replied 6 months ago.

Ok, great. Here is what you will need to check:

1. Thermal fuse - part number(###) ###-####- in the back of the dryer - it should read about zero ohms.

2. Ignitor - part number 279311 - found in front of the dryer - it should read between 50 and 200 ohms.

3. Flame sensor - wp338906 found on the side of the burner tube - it should read about zero ohms.

4. Gas coils - WPW10328463 -if all three above are ok, then replace them.

What else can I answer for you about your dryer?
