I just had my washer and dryer moved to a new location. The dryer will run, but the gas will not ignite and heat. Under the front panel on the left side is a loose white wire which must have popped loose in moving. I have searched for a half hour and cannot find a spot this wire could have been connected to. If it grounds, the GFCI instantly tripps.

Anybody have an idea where this wire goes or have an available wiring diagram?

Wire is on the far left. End is a bare clip, so it could have pulled out from a plastic sleeve

if you look at this image (and can zoom) there is a sensor or whatever further back than your parts page. It has a blue wire with sideways spade clip attached to it. I would assume there must be another terminal on this which is for my white wire with spade clip.

the white wire that came off,it is connected to the radiant sensor which is mounted on the left side of funnel, radiant sensor will have a blue and a white wires connected to it. if you can't find the connector at the sensor,then it must be broke off,in that case you will have to purchased new radiant sensor. missing one of these wires, either white or blue,then dryer is running without heat,and if one of these wire touch the cabinet then you will get a spark and hopefully your GFCI will trip.
