My dryer is not consistently heating. On the initial start of a cycle, no matter the amount of usage, the flame sensor clicks, filament/ignitor glows, and there is another click and the gas starts flowing and I have flame. About 10-15 minutes into the process, I notice that the ignitor/filament is glowing, but there is no "clicking". No clicking on pre-filament/ignitor glow, and no clicking for the gas flow. I note that if there is flame sensor click, the dryer works perfectly. However, if there is filament glow without the igniter "click" it just fades away.

Everything test good with continuity.

Thoughts?

Hi,

Yes, even though the gas coils ohm test fine, they can still get physically worn out and cause this problem. Its very common when I see this problem on my service calls.

Here's the gas coil kit for your model you can order here:
