I have a gas dryer that only ignites the heat flame when the cycle has started but it does not ignite at all during the rest of the cycle. The igniter does light up but from what I see the gas valve is not opened up and therefore, no flame.
I removed and checked the Coils (solenoids) and based on these instructions -> http://appliancejunk.com/blog/2010/01/22/how-to-test-dryer-gas-valve-coils/
, the coils are fine as they give the right Ohm readings.
I also checked the Flame Sensor and this does show continuity, so it seems to be fine.
If the Flame Sensor and the Coils are good, what else could be causing the flame to ignite only once at the beginning of the cycle but not afterwards?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions provided.
