Amana dryer LG8319W2 no heat
Our dryer will not heat. The gas comes on, but does not stay on longer than 5 seconds, then rests and then comes on a minute later for even less time. What could be wrong? Due to others's suggestions, we've replaced the coils, the thermal fuse, and the safety thermostat. Its behavior is still the same.

Not sure what else it could be, you've covered the basics of the gas components.
Maybe another tech. or member that has seen this issue on this model can shed some light on whats going on.

Disconnect your vent and see if your flame stays on longer. Bad air flow can cause the unit to short cycle. If the problem is resolved Check you venting to the outside of the home.
