dryer drum turns but no heat.... checked continuity on ignitor, thermal fuse, gas valve coils, flame sensor, and hi-limit safety t-stat( on top of burner cone). All showed no break in the circuit. Any further tests I need to do??

Does the ignitor ever glow ? Test the thermal fuse on the blower housing

the ignitor does glow for about 10 sec and then it goes off.... my assumption now is that the gas solenoid coil(s) are bad.....am I on the right track?
