Whirlpool Gas Dryer Model # LGR4634JQ1
Dryer tumbles but no heat. The problem came on suddenly. I replaced the ignitor, since it wasn't glowing and it was fairly cheap.
Still no go. Picked up a volt/ohm meter today. Checked the operating thermostat, it appears good. Checked the thermal fuse, it tested bad (OL).
Replaced that....still no heat.
What would be my next logical step?

Thanks in advance.

BTW; The ignitor still does not glow, if the flame sensor was stuck open would this cause the ignitor to not glow?
How would I test the flame sensor?

P.S. I removed the Flame sensor and put an ohm meter across the two terminals. On the lowest setting it reads 00.0 - 00.1 . Is that good or bad?

should be OK if that's on the 200 OHM scale...

Did you check the Hi-Limit Thermostat ?

You could just check for 120v AC from each side to chassis (a good ground)
(of each of the following)
Hi-Limit Thermostat
Operating Thermostat
Thermal Fuse
