Help! I having a problem with the flame not staying on.  I did some troubleshooting.  I have replaced the ignitor and hi-limit thermostat on the assy duct (even through they tested ok).  I thought it was the Hi-limit thermostat because when I moved it away from the duct the flame would stay on longer (1.5 min) but eventually did shut off.  Both thermostat 1 and thermistor on vent duct  resistance tested ok and also Radiant sensor.  What am I missing?  A while after flame goes out the the timer goes to 1 minute and the "Drying" and "Cooling" lights are illuminated simultaneously on the front panel display.  Could t be the gas valve?  if so, why the difference in time after moving the thermostat?  Could it be the PCB module?  its driving me crazy!  Please help.

Does the flame curl up in the burner cone or does it look like it is pulled straight back?

Are you using timed dry or the automatic cycle?

Ok . Is there any way to check it or just replace the whole gas valve assembly and coils?

Also does this need to be replaced by an experienced technician and need specialized tools?  or can I order and replace my self?  Obviously I am not specialized.

What happens after the flame goes out? Does it try to relight?

No.  After flame goes out it keeps running with cool air and then the the timer goes from 40 min to 1 minute and the "Drying" and "Cooling" lights are illuminated simultaneously on the front panel display.  The Dryer stops.

I doubt it's the valve coils, then.  My best guess would be the thermistor, DC32-00007A.  It can sometimes test good with a meter but malfunction when the control sends power through it.

ok.   I have not replaced that one.  Just tested.  Can I bypass just to see if it keeps the flame lit ?

No, its a variable resistor that changes it's value according to heat.

I think you are right tgoods however if he is testing with no load on automatic dry it would be normal for it to drop the cycle time and start to cool down after a minute or two.  I have seen failed thermisters act the same way though.  If you have a meter measure the resistance of the thermister at room temp then take a bic lighter and wave the flame under the thermister for a second or two then measure the resistance again and compare.  If the thermister is good the measurements should be pretty close if they are way off then bad thermister.
