ok If you have a flame the issue is not the gas valve coils ,

What is the temperature that is coming out of the dryer exhaust?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
That I don't know. It is fairly warm tho
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 5 months ago

ok a standard dryer exhaust temp is around 150 -175 degrees when the heat is on

And if you have a flame how long is the flame staying on for?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I have to take off the front panel just to see the burner. I didn't let it go for more than 30 seconds, don't want to damage drum
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I can put it back together and check exhaust temps if that is what you need
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 5 months ago

ok if the burner is cycling off , it is not going to damage the drum at all?

And when your running the dryer do you have damp clothes in the dryer?

This front loader dryer door supports the drum while operating. Removing the front panel and turning on the dryer lets the drum rotate without support.

Checking temp now. So far less than 100 degrees Just warm. Don't think flame stays on, but can't see flame while runnimg
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
This dryer has a dry temp setting. You can select clown low med hi and antibacterial. Could this be a problem?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 5 months ago

No the switch should not have anything do do with the flame it just sends a signal to the control it is not inline with the flame circuit..

Have you tested the voltage out of the heater relay on the control board to see if it is giving voltage to the burner coils or if it is what is dropping out ?

I f not that is what I would test first.

Test the blue wire to chassis ground when you have voltage on that wire from the relay the control board is calling for heat .

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
there is voltage on blue wire
Flame stays on for about 10 seconds. Then dryer shuts off
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 5 months ago

ok so the entire unit shuts off not just the flame?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago

Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 5 months ago

ok so if the unit is turning off after only running for a short time .
