Whirlpool Dryer
« on: April 11, 2011, 06:35:16 PM »
The burner ignites at the start of the cycle, but never reignites during the cycle.  I changed the igniter (retested @75 Ohms after install), and the radiant sensor shows continuity.  Is it the coils?

Yep. If the ignitor works and the flame sensor shuts down that ignitor but you have no flame, replace the coils. They work when cool but fail when hot with age.
