I just replaced the ignitor and was careful not to touch the coil, and no luck.  I don't hear any click, and I don't hear the gas coming on.  It appears my next step would be either a bad gas valve or perhaps a bad flame sensor.  On another note, I do not have any testing equipment and I wonder if a service call would be in order?

Is the ignitor even coming on?? If no click sounds like there is no power to the heat circuit.  Without a model number we have no idea what all is in this dryer.

The model # is DPSB620GCOWW (on dryer and GCWW on invoice from lowes).  Pegi, I don't think the ignitor is coming on because I don't hear any clicks.  I've read where one could look to see if it's glowing, but with this dryer, there is no way to tell since the front and top of the dryer must come off.  Samurai, thank you for the link, I'll check it out now.  I'll wait a couple days and see what you people might suggest for a fix.  I understand without testing to confirm, it's a gamble but I'll try a sugestion and claim full responsibility if it doesn't work.  I do appreciate the help.

This looks like it could be alot of different things, from the control panel in the console, outlet thermister, safety thermostat, inlet contol thermister...this is quite a complicated dryer.  The tech sheet is in the console, I would imagine you will want to take a look at this and start tracing down the heat circuit to see where you have lost power to the heat circuit, might want to fax it to the Samurai, he can provide his fax number.  You will need an ohm meter and volt meter to start testinng.
